Soundtrack of the generation

#1 Posted by JZ (2125 posts) -

Anyone listen to the "hehe ho music from your youth" in the game? It's all the music from p3 and p4. Just holy shit that music is increadible. I can't get enough of it.

@JZ: Hell yeah. Also, that's one of the only places you can find all the track names translated to understandable English that I've found.

I went back through my iTunes renaming all the tracks I had thanks to that music list. Plus, found some that I needed to go out and find - wish all the soundtracks were more easily purchased : /

I love that they gave you a way to just listen to all the tracks in the game. "Snowflakes" is one of my new favorites, also the new battle music("Lets make history..." i think it's called).

The 8-bit remix of "I'll Face Myself" is great too, can't understand why that wasn't in original P4.

@Jedted: Yeah, Snowflakes and its remix are totally in my top 5 persona tracks now. As is Girl of the Hollow Forest, which may be number 1 or 2.

I love the new battle music, it's far less grating than the old one though I don't remember what decides which one you get or where/when you get the new one. As for the 8-bit remix, I totally didn't realise it was new to P4G until I read into it. It felt so natural in that fight (I'm assuming you mean the video-game-themed dungeon boss fight music, I think the name has something to do with Mitsuo).

The 8-bit remix is called Shin Mitsuo Tensei which is kinda ironic.

@selfconfessedcynic: The Void Quest dungeon always had the 8-bit style music when exploring the dungeon but the i new boss battle remix was new as soon as i heard it.

I really like the theme that plays in Maries dungeon. It is a little repetetive, but It sounds very cold and a little lonely, very fitting. A sky full of stars is also a new favorite, if maybe only because of the intro jazz-piano (or what you call it). =P

I should NOT be listening to that music, no matter how awesome it is, just makes me wanna buy a Vita along with P4 Golden
 
I do have the cash...

Anyone else think the Void Quest dungeon music sounds like 70s porn music?

#11 Posted by selfconfessedcynic (2566 posts) -

@runcrash: Haha - actually, I don't know about that.

What little 70s porn I've seen had really really weird music, and kindof creeped me out.

I was about to say something along the lines of what porn has 8-bit reminiscent music, but these are not the forums for that kind of discussion I think.

@runcrash: not really, the stripper dungeon on the other hand...

Isn't it a bit too early in the "next generation" to call this out? 
 
But I agree it's a great soundtrack.

I love the nonsense English.

Does anyone really wish the lyrics to these Shoji Meguro soundtracks made sense? I couldn't give less of a damn, so long as the tunes stay catchy.

@selfconfessedcynic: I think the songs would be worse if they didn't have nonsense English.

You get the old one, "Reach Out To The Truth", whenever you get a Player Advantage. Any other time, the new battle theme plays.

I was actually mildly upset when I found out they decided to put in a new battle theme, but when I found out about the above I was less up in arms. At this point, I've come to actually enjoy the new theme and wish there was a way I could have more of an even mix between the two, which is nigh impossible since I will ALWAYS go for the backstab.

Also, AWESOME decision by Atlus to have the soundtrack and cutscenes available within the game. More companies need to do this, seriously.

@wchigo: Whenever i'm grinding old dungeons(usually for side quests) i just rush all the shadows so i've gotten use to hearing the "Time to Make History" theme.

#19 Posted by JZ (2125 posts) -

Dear Christ shadow world is the best song ever.

#20 Posted by JZ (2125 posts) -

Lets go now to the place, this ain't no game, it's time to make history.

#21 Posted by SuperWristBands (2266 posts) -

Man, the problem with not having a Vita is I didn't pay much attention to this game and I totally didn't think it'd have new music. Gotta go listen to those new tracks now.
