I agree about stand alone music. If music is just some long notes in the background that work for the mood of the game, thats great, but you won't be adding them to your playlist to listen to later.

I like that too, although it undermines the way I make a living!!
Especially for games with no music, its a great thing. Like RoboKill. I built a little industrial music mix that works great with the sfx. Its a nice option if you can't afford music...hmmm...I should start mailing devs of games like RoboKill and offer them my services
