Reviewers can say what they want to say. In my opinion, outside of the remix of the classic AoE theme, the music simply isn't interesting.
IMO, AoM's music wasn't misfitting. Afterall, they seem like they wanted a sort of epic (godly) music which fit it really well. Of course, it isn't "realistic" but then again, a game about pagan gods and fireballs falling down from the sky doesn't have to be historically accurate.
