More than anything, I wish they'd make an extended version of the main theme.

I wouldn't mind hearing a concert version of the main theme, with some variations or something breaking it up, but as it plays in the show to my ears it's tiresomely repetitive already: by the time the whole minute or two of credits have played out I feel like I've heard the same thing looped too many times already!

Never warmed to the first season's music and never listened to the second, outside the show, but the third is quite good, one of Djawadi's best efforts to date. Highlights include "A Lannister Always Pays His Debts," a great arrangement of the Rains of Castamere tune that serves as the Lannister theme, especially resonant after the events of the latest episode, and "Mhysa," a lovely chorale arrangement of the main theme. And while not a score cue, fun nonetheless is "The Bear and the Maiden Fair," the main lyrics of which have been in my head for years.

You are missing an awesome experience - it is one of the best shows ever made - right up there with Battlestar, The Wire and Breaking Bad.

Mhysa is an awesome track but it does remind me a lot of Lord of the Rings. No surprise really as they are both set in fantasy worlds but Thrones is 100 times better than that hobbit trilogy.

I don't really think it is one of the best shows ever made. Certainly one of the most ambitious, and one of the most compulsively watchable, but to be honest, for me at least, it doesn't really stick around long after I watch it. I think one of the problems might simply be its scope -- there are so many characters that most only get 2-10 minutes of screentime an episode, if they even show up, and some of the ongoing stories are simply not that interesting (I suspect which ones those are depend on the viewer). They are definitely making a valiant effort to adapt the novels, and I do think the show is very good, but it's rarely kicked me in the pants the way, say Deadwood or the first season of the new BSG did.

For me the score this season was very touch and go. In many of the eps it just felt there, with a meandering, vaguely ethnic quality without any real personality. Which was a step down equal to the step up between S1 and S2 (by far my favorite season musically). But, happily, much like the narrative of S3 itself, the strands were drawn tightly in the final eps and the score really came to life. "Mhysa" in particular opens and ends with two of the best tracks from the series so far. I may yet have to get this album.

The score has been getting better and better and the series is fantastic. I agree it's sometimes challenging to keep track of all the characters but they payoffs of the various plotlines so far have been well worth the effort, and I love the performers (Sean Bean very much included). Definitely my favorite series since HBO's Rome.
