Hard to decided between FFVI and Persona 5. There were about three minutes of FFVI that I enjoyed much more than P5. However, the first 8:20 were pretty tedious, and 11:30 to the end were alright aside from the organ sound changing from pipe-organ to Vox-Continental. In the end, P5’s consistency won out.

Gusty Garden Galaxy is a short ride in a fast (and joyful) machine.


#1272

I’ll be sad if Titanfall 2 loses, but not too sad, as the Super Mario Galaxy theme is both amazing and iconic.


#1273

Super Mario Galaxy and Final Fantasy VI advance.

#1274

I honestly expected to be in the minority on both of these. Interesting.


#1275

I can’t believe I just voted against Guile’s Theme, but it just did not hold up against Necrodancer.


#1276

For me, Guile’s Theme just had more forward motion. Necrodancer was good, but a bit heavy.

Escape Velocity is very evocative of the experience of breaking free of gravity. I thought is was good programme music.


#1277

Nex Machina was the clear winner in match 25 for me. I like the piano melody of the NMS track but I didn’t enjoy the wall of sound much, despite being partial to one.

I love the Guile theme but no matter how many blows it landed, Crypt of the Necrodancer kept getting back up.

He’s done most of the soundtrack I believe and Danny Bararowsky even left a comment!


#1278

It’s funny. The more I listen to the No Man’s Sky track, the more I like it. Partly it’s because it’s a good piece. Also partly, it takes me back to those day in the library at college with headphones on learning to understand the musique concrete of Davidovsky and Varese. I guess it was worth it after all.

I just played Thumper for the first time. Beat level 1, and what music should be playing on the final score screen? Yep, Dies Irae. I can’t unhear it now, it’s everywhere!


#1281

One of the easier brackets for me.

Oh, you think Dies Irae is everywhere? Get into neoclassical metal, it really is everywhere.
