I've been kinda addicted to the Final Fantasy XIII-2 soundtrack, so I thought to myself, I may as well post my top 5 so far (although, this is subject to change.) I feel like I can't really list them in order yet, so I'm just going to list them in any order.
This is one of the battle themes. But it makes me feel strange, I find this soothing; like I'm just laying on the ocean shore. You'd think this wouldn't go well at all with a battle theme, but it's actually a very well mixed soundtrack. There's a techno-like beat in the background, whilst the main chorus is a violinist playing a six bar melody (sorry if that's incorrect, I don't know my music terms very well, just listen and you'll know what I'm talking about)
When I first heard this song on the trailer, it got me so pumped up about this game. I mean, something about this soundtrack is just so exciting! It builds up to a climax, and once it reaches that climax; all hell breaks loose! It's amazing, just amazing, I feel like I can't explain it any other way
This song track, well, I don't know how to explain it. I just like it. It could be the subtle piano keys. It could be the dance/funk beat it has about it. Maybe it's the singer? Who knows? But one thing I have noticed about this game is that they've included ALOT more vocal tracks. This is one of the more tasteful ones, most of the other ones just sound too... j-pop
Here are some chocobos in battle attire... Because I wanted to okay?
This is one of the 'random encounter' battle themes. It got my juices flowing everytime I heard it. It was just like: "yay! Time to slay some hopelessly weak monster with chances of them joining my side!" I just love the electric guitar in this one. It's borderline Rock, I love it!
This... I mainly love this because they've turned the chocobo song in a hardcore metal song. If any of youse have played Final Fantasy as long as I have, you'll remember that's it's always a pretty mellow, upbeat melody whilst this one has adrenaline pumping sounds with screamo lyrics.
That's pretty much all I need to say about it. I know most of these are battle themes, that's probably because those are the ones you hear most so I guess I just related to them better.
