Awesome news. A few spoilers in there such as Spoiler: Jack Final Boss and Warrior Boss, but we had already guessed as much anyway. I'm wondering what Spoiler: Vog Fight is, Terramorphous music maybe?

BTW, any chance of us getting audio previews of any of these songs soon. I'd love to hear some snippets of a few of the songs, just not all of them or any of the boss music, I want some surprises in-game. It'd be nice just to hear the overall theme of Borderlands 2's music, maybe a soundtrack trailer like some of the other developers do.

I concur. I loved the music in BL1, so I think I'll pre-order this regardless, but having some song snippets would be nice, and could help those on the fence perhaps come to a decision.

If nothing else, samples should be available from digital retailers like Amazon and iTunes upon release.

Agreed, and understand I never expected Gearbox, who has no control over such things, to cough up a snippet list. You guys should be coughing up DLC snippets!

Seriously, I hope you guys got some decent rest and such. We all want as much BL as possible, but we want the entire team to be healthy and sane (somewhat) as well!
