What do you guys think of the soundtrack?

#1 Posted by RainVillain (480 posts) -

Personally I'm enjoying it but nothing has really jumped out at me yet. The Shimomura tracks have that nice KH rhythm to them, which is nice, and in general the ACe+ are, uh, pretty ace. Though I suppose Shimomura's title piano theme is my favourite right now of the lot.

I'm on the fence about whether to purchase this album or not. It's all very nice but nothing really resonates with me very strongly yet. What do you guys think of it and what's your fave track?

I'm liking it so far. There's some fine work from Shimomura in this game, and it really meshes well with the game.

I am really enjoying the soundtrack. It's so JRPG, which is all I need.

It's good but none of the tracks (aside from maybe a few seconds of the main theme) have gotten into my head yet.

It's OK so far, but nothing has stood out to me yet.

I love the soundtrack so far.  Some of the songs get a little repetitive after a while since you're in the same area for a really long time especially if you're messing around with the sidequests.  But I think its top-notch.

The soundtrack's impressive, considering every region has a track for both day and night. My personal favorites are those that show up once you reach the Mechonis. The regular battle music and the first area especially. I also like this one, though you only hear it once throughout the entire game.

I'm really enjoying it so far. I REALLY love the Satorl Marsh Night time theme, so beautiful.

I loved the music I heard on the Quick Look, and listening to that was a significant part of my sudden desire to purchase the game.

What's nice about the music is that it has a consistant feel to it, but because it's a team of people working on the soundtrack, each track sounds different enough that each area feels kinda fresh to go to. Final boss theme is probably one of the best battle themes I've heard recently, song title is full of spoiler though, so won't post, and it's best hearing it in context really, all good videogame music is best heard in context.

I just got to that area; very beautiful indeed. What is being sung exactly?
