Hello! I have been searching for about a month now, trying to figure out the answer to the following question: who composed the sound track for Mech Warrior 2? I *loved* that music, but I have no idea who made it! So, my question is: who wrote the sound track, and does he/she/they have any music albums out. Thanks in advance!
