I recently bought the Binding of Isaac + soundtrack. how do I actually access the soundtrack?

The soundtrack shows up when I view downloadable content via steam, and it shows that I own it in the steam store... but trying to "play now", steam boots up the game, not the soundtrack, taking me to the main menu - and I cannot find the DLC under 'options' or 'collections', so... where's mah music?

Protip: Don't buy soundtracks via Steam. – GnomeSlice Jul 15 '12 at 4:12
@GnomeSlicE Ironically, I got it included in one of the Game Music Bundles, so I own it twice now! – Raven Dreamer Jul 15 '12 at 4:23

The music files are located in whatever drive you installed Steam on, then this path:

\Steam\steamapps\common\the binding of isaac\The Binding of Isaac Soundtrack

Your files should be there and ready to play! There's no way to access the soundtrack through the client itself, unfortunately.

If you're on a Mac you'll find that path in [Home]/Library/Application Support/Steam.

Can you elaborate on where it is on Mac OSX? – user17711 Jan 4 '12 at 2:50
@Joe On the Mac, open a Finder window and press Command+Shift+G (or select Go > Go to Folder...). Enter "~/Library/Application Support/Steam/" (without the quotes) in the text field and press Enter. Your SteamApps folder will be in this folder. – user27830 Jun 19 '12 at 12:27
