Some people like Borderlands 2 for the awesome gameplay.  Others like it for its excellent story.  Most people probably like both aspects, but what about the soundtrack?  Sometimes an otherwise great game can be painful to play through if the music sucks.  Thankfully Borderlands 2 is not one of those games because the soundtrack is pretty good.

Sumthing Else Music Works thinks so too, and so on November 19th they will be presenting the original scores from three of the Borderlands 2 DLC packs in digital format.  Next week gamers can purchase soundtracks from Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty, Mister Torgue's Campaign of Carnage, and Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon's Keep through iTunes, Amazon.com, Sumthing.com, and other music sites.  More info and music samples can be found at www.Sumthing.com.
