Yeah, I would listen to it but I've ruined too many JRPG themes by listening to the OST before I played the game to do so here (and inversely I've become interested in many a JRPG because of its OST, but since I'm already interested in Xenoblade 2 I'll use some rare restraint).  Does the game's ost avoid having generic "this is a rock'n roll battle theme" tracks this time though?  That was one of my biggest issues with the original Xenoblade's soundtrack, so many of the battle themes (Particularly once the party hit the Mechonis) felt like lamer weaker attempts at emulating stuff like this, minus having killer melodies to sink hooks into the listener.    

But speaking of banging classics I've been listening to Bravely Default's ost again recently.  Forgot just how fantastic that game's music is, the perfect blend between homage and modern.  Simply perfection.  Like that theme every piece has definitive character, whether it be for fighting a demon spawned from the depths of hell to a middle-eastern inspired nation built around clocks to an ethereal cave the game's music gets the job done and then some.

A shame Bravely Second's soundtrack couldn't carry the mantle. Not that it didn't have some bangers too, Battle of Anne was great and the final boss theme, while no Serpent Eating the Horizon, was still great fourth-wall shattering stuff.

Fair enough sir! I think the battle music's a lot like XC1, which probably includes generic rock-n-roll tracks - sorry. Certainly some of the boss tracks buck that trend. I did prefer them to XC1's if that helps? Couldn't stand the likes of YWNON, and Mechanical Rhythm only gets good halfway through.

You know, I warmed to Bravely Second's OST after a while, albeit it remained nowhere near as good as the original's. I ended up liking the Providence theme, not to mention Sapp and Piddler's music and the final dungeon theme, the latter of which is top FFIII-style stuff. Never got on with Anne beyond the 20s or so of Spanish guitar - then it becomes the shrieky generic electric stuff Ryo couldn't drag themselves away from. Neutral

DoPo, but what the heck: Celeste's music has caught my ear.  Like Undertale, it's in the chiptune-plus style, where chiptune soundsets are backed up by 'real instruments'; and like Undertale, it would seem to be a thing of beauty.

Here's the first level theme.  I was going to stick up the prologue music, but everyone deserves to discover that first glorious moment with the game's music themselves.

See, I didn't like that one so much. The thing that kicks in at 21 seconds (to go?) to pretty much lead the tune thereafter gets on my nerves. If that had been something else - a violin, perhaps - I would have been right there with you. Aww! There is some solid work in the game, though - on that I can agree. Thumbs Up!

The synth pad thing? I'm surprised at that Zero. I completely understand disliking certain instrument sounds (see me/Jay and the Inkling voices), but that's what the track uses for its chiptune-esque quality: as a big fan of retro gaming, I presumed you'd be all over that sort of thing.

I've let go of my need to correct your wrongness about the Splatoon soundtrack since going to a concert and being surrounded by 100s of people getting super into it and emotional.

It has to be good chiptune for me to like it, is how I'd describe it. Just because it belongs to that genre, it doesn't automatically qualify it to be something I love unconditionally. That said, there are some incredible tracks in the game, for sure. Thumbs Up!

Don't know if you already saw this, but here's an amazing medley of various musicians playing pieces from the whole Mario series. This could, essentially, have served as my covers for the whole Marioapalooza.

What's sad Nick Frost doing playing 1-2 in that video?

Joking aside, that video was awesome. Cheers for sharing. Thumbs Up!

Finished with the vote thread, I need something else to do... ooh, I know!  Carrying on a theme from Drunka's post, kind of:

GNamer Music Thingy 156
GNamer's Favourite Game
Alternative Mix





This was always going to come up sooner or later... but I'm going about things a little differently this week.  SMO's filled with classics, from its first level theme to the festival theme to the Bowser level theme to the ending theme.  (Also Steam Gardens is really popular for some reason.)  I'm going to try and pick out five themes I think are less sung, but still brilliant in their own ways.  Nothing in here should be too spoilery, but I'll be splashing pictures all over the shop, so... brace yourself.











[This space for the spoiler-free who clicked here by accident.]













5. Mt. Volbono



Lava-level music is usually good, but there's no similar precedent for food-level music.  SMO might just have set it, though.  It's definitely hot, and it has the classic 'bwaaaoooow' noises in the background... but the xylophone melody is all food, all the time.  Nom nom nom.


4. Torkdrift Battle



'DO NOT MESS WITH ME, BIPED.'  Sounds like an F-Zero track slowed down.


3. Shiveria Town



The Shiverians are chuffing adorable, and so's their music.  Sounds like something out of Kirby, and that's no insult.  Hints of Snowdin and Celtic fiddle too.  But that's not the best version, oh no: the best version is down by the circuit, where it sounds like a bunch of seal-bear-things are about to march off to war and give Bowser a hiding for the motherland.  (Now there's a strategy game I'd play...)


2. Final Level Caves



Good luck finding a spoiler-free picture of this...  I've done my best.  I know that certain other pieces of final level music, or final-ish level music, get a lot more fanfare.  I really like this one, especially because of the context.  It's all quiet, you find the entrance, and DAAAAAAAAH!  Big band/rock guitar time!  High intensity music for a high intensity level.  Good stuff.


1. Jaxi Riding



I bloody love this.  It's chirpy and it has cool ethnic flute in, what more could one ask for while riding a stone lion through the desert?  More than a hint of Sprawling Savannah to it, and that's okay - it was SM3DW's best piece by a long way.  But, er, not much more than a hint.  Please do not do that.


I'm sure I'll come back to SMO some day and do the big pieces.  Might do a top ten.  Drunka might beat me to it, who knows?

Because it's a banger through and through, that's why!

I liked the Shiveria Town theme the most out of the selection you shared - it's a pleasant and jolly village theme, and I can get behind that. Smile

Yes. How can anyone not like that... Right, I'm putting a link in right now. I was trawiling this level for 2 and a half hours today trying to mop up the final moons, and was still joining in with the music at the end.

Admission: I don't actually think it's as much of a banger as some. Embarrassed It's still good, but not Shiveria War March Tier good.

Laughing

...I laugh (because I thought it was genuinely funny), but at some point I should take a picture of my living room. The sofa alone has seven cuddly toys on it, six Pokémon-related.

Operation Hug is no joke soldier.

I've not even played the game yet, but that was funny stuff. Laughing

This guy is a legend. His whole channel is full of jazzy covers of your favourite tracks, but his BotW stuff has been a particular treat to listen to.

Certainly is: he cropped up in the last thread, at around the time I was going mad for Vast Poni Canyon. Feast your ears!

Alternatively, for a giggle: this utter banger.

This is... the best thing. I won't forget it. I remain immensely sad that they patched the Ardanian Guards' lines.

Incidentally that linked me to this, which does contain some musical spoilers for later-game areas but is absolutely my top two themes fighting it out. Thumbs Up!

I'm very partial to insaneintherain's cover of Champion Cynthia, it was already a banger but this classy jazz cover with violin accompaniment is just a delight to the ears. Those links remind me I really need to catch up in his latest stuff, been about a year since I last had a look.

GNamer Music Thingy 157
Celeste





I couldn't wait any longer.  Celeste has a brilliant soundtrack.  With the return of O_R, now seemed like the time.  I've spoilered every individual song down below, though, because I know people are still playing it or are intending to play it.  If you're one of those, DON'T SPOIL YOURSELF!  Not even the last one.  There are several moments in the game where brilliant musical decisions added to the impact, and you will be the worse for where if you know about them.  Plus, y'know, I'll be talking about other general spoilery bits.

This was a tough one.  I've had to make tough musical choices before, but (say) SMO's tough because it has a massive soundtrack and there are always going to be blinders in there.  Celeste's is 21/29 pieces long, but almost full of hits.





(Extra space for Cappa.)







5. Level 3 Spoilers:
 


4. Postgame Spoilers:
 


3. Level 6 Spoilers:
 


2. Level 7 Spoilers:
 


1. Prologue Spoilers:
 


If you like the above, support the artist.  She's pretty great.
