Florence Rooftops is pretty dope. I was always curious why there wasn't a version for it like Venice...

Yeah, I always suspected that if there was a Florence edition it would sound like a dynamic/energetic variation of Home in Florence, and turns out it does. I really like it.

"Florence Rooftops" sounds kind of weird. I can't really picture it fitting anywhere in the game.

The best new track is by far "Jerusalem Hanging". :cool:

I don't know, AC2's score is known for having a few unconventional tracks that on paper shouldn't really work, but they do - like Venice Escape which sounds like a dance track and End Fight which is the most unusual, genre-bending thing I've heard in an AC soundtrack. I think both of these would sound weird to a first time listener.

Florence Rooftops could have worked in the Florence races, or in the mission where Ezio retrieves the feathers for Petrucio, but I guess the developers wanted a stronger musical identity and defaulted to Venice Rooftops because it contained the main theme.

Does this mean Ubi and Kyd are friends? Perhaps they always were. Pretty cool release anyway. Looks like they are using this year to clean their office. And every now and then they find something cool they wanna release :).
