October Songaday: Day 30 (Assassin's Creed Revelations - The Wounded Eagle)

Jesper Kyd's Assassin's Creed series has some of the best music in video games. It's consistently strong and flavorful, actively enhancing the gameplay experience. Despite Ubisoft's somewhat iffy implementation of the music in the later games, it makes for excellent album listening. In my opinion, the AC2 soundtrack is the strongest - ACR has more links simply because ACR has a larger soundtrack. AC2 is more concise, but more consistently wonderful.
I'm worried about the loss of Kyd on ACIII, but I'm willing to trust Balfe for now. The game comes out today, so that's why today gets this. Enjoy the ton of links - I have homework and then studying to do for an exam Wednesday, and my Oriental 3.5 game, so I hope I have time to actually play it today. I'm so excited for it.
I like The Wounded Eagle because it uses a lot of the brighter styles I remember from AC2 that were often lost on the ACB and ACR soundtracks. It's a touch short, but that's okay.

I've done the AC2 soundtrack several times before, on both September Songaday and on blog posts. As such, I chose to not use it and use a different thing for the embed, but check out the links.
