Looks like Meguro's giving the P4 OST a nice redo. It sounds quite good judging from these small snippets. These new tracks will have to be in P4 Vita, right? Can't wait.

That bassline on Heartbeat, Heartbreak: UNGH *grabs crotch* As if it were produced by Funky Student himself. Nice whiny synth in the background, giving it more of a funky ass feel.

More Persona soundtracks is always a good thing.

This made me laugh more than it should.

Oh, really!? Holy crap, that's awesome. Finally, the Reincarnation treatment that I've been clamoring for.

Another to be added to my stack of Persona soundtracks!

This keeps getting better and better. I play the Persona 4 soundtrack all the time. Currently got my favourite track, Never More, played 74 times according to iTunes.

HOT. HOT HOT HOT.

I love the soundtracks for both P3 and P4. Looking forward to this for sure!

hopefully this is easier to find; I've been trying to locate the Nier Tribute album, but to no avail.

SIGH

Sounds nice. I kind of wish the vocals in the Persona games were either sung in Japanese or by a fluent English speaker. It can just... sound a little silly sometimes.

I hope that isn't blasphemy.

#10 Posted by SirOptimusPrime (2029 posts) -

I love the Reincarnation of P3's OST, so this should be fucking sweet as well.

It is. I'd say it's part of the songs' charm.

Eh you're not alone. I found myself cringing a little to Pursuing My True Self's new lyrics.

edit: not that the old ones were any better :x

Still listen to Persona music pretty regularly. The ending theme for Persona 3 still gives me depression though.

Fantastic news. The album they did for Persona 3 was good and I prefer the Persona 4 soundtrack overall. Should be great.

I fucking love the Persona 4 soundtrack, but all this reminds me is that the English singing and lyrics are kinda hilarious on that soundtrack. With that said, some of the tracks that I'm not so huge on repeating could benefit greatly from a remake.

When i listen to "Heartbeat, Heartbreak" i just listen: "Hard dick, hard dick, dick keeps on pounding..."

Only great things will come from this.

Try listening to 夢想曲. Yeah! DJ Doujima's Sounds of Conviction remix. Seriously though, hope that new tracks will be in The Golden.

#23 Posted by OllyOxenFree (4980 posts) -

These beats are so funky I don't think I can handle it!

Meguro has mentioned before that the Engrish is actually very deliberate in order to give the game a slightly foreign feel to even a Japanese audience. According to him, if he had it his way, the localized versions would have Japanese lyrics to achieve a similar effect overseas.

#27 Posted by Vexxan (4623 posts) -

Every day is Persona music day. I want that album sooo bad :/

#28 Posted by Bocam (3805 posts) -

@Turambar: The artist's signature kinda ruins it

#29 Posted by Sayishere (1840 posts) -

Man that heart break heartbreak mix is of the chain.

#30 Edited by Master_Funk (740 posts) -

I will buy this soundtrack. Shoji Meguro is the funkiest Japanese video game composer around.

I'd be way into that. Well, unless it was the reverse: a native English speaker singing in Japanese. That might be worse.

That could be terrible or fine, the reason Japanese speakers singing English sounds bad is because English has WAY more sounds than Japanese, if an English speaker can get the pronunciations correct their Japanese can sound a lot better. Granted, it can still sound awful.

Those tracks sound awesome. I will be importing this.

Can´t wait for the anime mostly for the awesome music than the plot itself really, Im diggin sooo much the new opening track

Shihoko Hirata sexy rapping voice is sexy ....

#37 Posted by NathHaw (2799 posts) -

@WatanabeKazuma: Haha.

I listen to the Soundtrack from P4 a lot. One day while parking outside a GameStop, I was finishing up Heartbeat, Heartbreak on the soundtrack. Got out of the car, and a guy yelled to me that he loved P4. Happened a couple years ago, I guess.

The other day at work while the power was out, P4 eventually came up with a co-worker, and we realized somewhere in that discussion that we were those two guys that that had happened to. He had no knowledge of GiantBomb until then. I told him about the ER. It reminded me even more how much some of us P4 fans love this game but have missed out on maybe the greatest thing GB has done.

#38 Posted by Kitchenline (10 posts) -

I'm definitely in with the (hopefully) extended 'Pursuing My True Self' track. Non-sensical Engrish aside, that one was always my favourite on the soundtrack. But who am I kidding, ATLUS need only say 'Persona' and I'll start scrambling for my wallet. I'm part of the problem xD

Thanks for the heads up!

Well the internet has taught me that if you're not first, don't bother!

I would like to own physical copies to satisfy that weird collectors need in me, but prices tend to crazy for that sort of stuff.

Love the soundtrack

#42 Posted by Daroki (717 posts) -

@AngelN7: Wasn't that the outro for the first episode? Are they moving it to the intro for Ep 2?

#43 Posted by AngelN7 (2972 posts) -

@Daroki: Yep I just thought that was gonna be the intro because of that trailer, but they decided to use the same intro of the game for the first episode.

#44 Posted by ItBeStefYo (1020 posts) -

what the hell, heartbeart heartbreak IS RUINED

#45 Edited by khidi (37 posts) -

If the rest is like the teasers and P3 Reincarnation then it will be more than worth its price. (Just listen deep breath from the game ost and then the reincarnation version)

Thanks thehexeditor for reminding me of the best ending ever (imo), just listening the song almost makes me cry, part joy part sadness, it was around 3 at night when I got through P3 after dying at the last boss (after what,over 60mins?), then beat it and the ending I got, sorry I got something in my eye, I'M NOT CRYING T_T.

#46 Posted by metalsnakezero (2339 posts) -

Guys, its god damn beautiful!

#47 Posted by AndrewB (7686 posts) -

Wow, the lyrics for these are actually understandable. After 100 hours of endurance run and playing a good chunk of the game myself, I still had no clue what half the lyrics for any of the music were. It's kind of weird. But good.

That's about the same time I finished P3 after powering through a marathon session and it had the same effect.

Yeah, this is pretty great: 
  

#49 Posted by Nexas (638 posts) -

I want this so bad, but $30+ to import is a little much. Atlus should put this up on Amazon or iTunes for download.

#50 Posted by ricetopher (1046 posts) -

The "I'll Face Myself" remix is fucking godlike.

Thank you based Shoji.
