Even though I've talke...

Is there any MMO soundtrack that arrived with such incredible expectations and baggage as Destiny? If so, I can't recall it.

Jukebox Heroes: WildStar features the MMO soundtrack of the year

Originally I wanted to write a final Jukebox Heroes column for this year that would have ranked all of the soundtrack releases in 2014, but that ran into a couple of snags.
