Okay, I'm posting too much but I listened to this one song from the NieR tribute album and a certain few parts made my skin crawl. Not sure if love so far, but it's ... ... ... so very interesting.

Snow in Summer ~ The Dark Colossus Destroys All arranged by world's end girlfriend, NieR Tribute Album -echo-

Lol this is the best track

Time of the Dreamwatch by Yasunori Mitsuda, Chrono Cross
also has a bunch of other names, like The Dream That Time Dreams, or whatever the heck the video says.

Spoiler


T_T I can't sleep

I'm looking at the cover of this CD and wondering why it's an unappetising-looking breakfast setting with bacon and eggs on a plate and orange juice with "THE BRINK OF TIME" plastered across the top. Wtf does this image have to do with Chrono Trigger? And somebody's saying some really unsavoury things, which clearly means I need to listen to the worst tracks.

[edit] Okay I think I just found the worst version of Magus' theme I have ever heard. LOL

So I pick up this quest about a man chasing a rumoured formula for ye olde Viagra, made from ashes of a unicorn's mane. Immediately took off for some after hearing the rumour, apparently. I go look for him and find his decomposing body out in the woods.

This thread isn't limited to Japanese and irdc as long as it's good, the OP was just about tracks that were polled to be the 'best' in Japan which also included some foreign :P

I haven't played the DQ series and haven't heard of that composer but that's interesting, most people usually say like Yasunori Mitsuda (Chrono series, Xenosaga), Nobuo Uematsu (FF) or heck even Sakuraba (almost everything else) when it comes to their favourite

Go Shiina is kinda under-appreciated though, he seems to think badly of his own work despite having practically a cult following after Legendia


Change that.

I detect a severe lack of Xenoblade music in this topic.

Heh, official. inb4 suspend or ban.

Thinking back to previous posts of mine in this thread, I really should have linked a better example of Koichi Sugiyama's work. Here's a video of him conducting a piece from Dragon Quest IV.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_V_6bSLNnHE

Honestly surprised you say you've never heard of him. He's the one who inspired many of the best VGM composers, including Nobuo Uematsu.

And about the Dragon Quest series: If you're interested in trying it, I suggest starting with a later game in the series, VIII (PS2) would be best. It's not that the older games are really bad, per se, but since the Dragon Quest series pretty much invented the JRPG, and most of the advancements in the genre, the fact it's done so much first shows.

The remakes are pretty good, for Dragon Quest I and II I would tell you to either hunt down the GBC compilation pak (with reduced grind), or download a ROM and the English patch for the Japan-only Super Famicom I and II multicart. Looks and sounds better, (though nostalgia goggles sway me towards the classic NES versions) and I believe the Super Famicom versions have the grind tweaked as well. As for Dragon Quest III, you have the option of NES, GBC remake, or playing a patched ROM of the Super Famicom version which I highly recommend since much has been added (battle animations, and the fact that it was released midwayish through the console's time, and its graphics looking great). IV-VI have decent DS remakes, VII's on the PS1, VIII's on the PS2.

Wall of text.

Lol @ the geeky dress up parts. Fantastic piece though. I'm not much of a follower for the main big composer names out there, I only really got into VGM after Falcom because they're mad good and unfortunately also mad niche.

My PS2 bit the dust a long time ago so I'll probably look into emulators, or better yet keep an eye out if they ever release a title for the Xbox/PS3.

I DO listen to a lot of the stuff you link in this thread, (believe it or not I think about more than ponies) and I agree with you. I think my only exposure to their stuff in the past before is "That series I hear about with the name that is spelled Ys and is pronounced yeez". Though I think I might have played the SNES port of Brandish for a couple minutes at a pawn shop many years ago.

It's actually pronounced ees, haha. I had to tell my friend many times to stop calling it "wise" on his stream though.

I've been making a fairly effortful attempt to keep this topic diverse... otherwise I'd just keep posting from the same few soundtracks over and over.

Want diversity? Here's a track from a black-sheep game that was made because they thought Americans were too stupid for normal RPGs.



I will make a mental note to pronounce Ys properly.

Slightly disappointed that nobody bothered uploading this version of Brave of Blaze. It's pretty rad sandworm wrangling music...

Nice music for when I'm running for my life like a sissy spellcaster in Inferno mode, almost makes me feel like I'm worth something. Definitely one of the best tracks on the album.

Lol that game. Surprisingly good.

Last one from this soundtrack.

DINK by Falcom Sound Team jdk, Brandish -The Dark Revenant-

I know this is slang for something. I don't get it either.

Spoiler


There was this indie game developer who thought it would be rad if he took the exact melody of Falcom's "HEADLESS," tossed it through some remix program and stuck it into his promotional trailer without so much as crediting anyone. People started exclaiming how amazing the music was, even though the original destroyed it in every way! My friend linked to me after seeing its growing acclaim and I recognised it within moments. It was disgusting, to say the least.
