Round 2...Sonic Generations (360 and 3DS)

At first I thought about posting my ballots in game releases order...but I have realized that this way I would give more points to a game that may not be one of my osts faves and then not to have time to post about the ones I really think are the best...So I arranged the games I think have the best soundtracks for me and post them in first place...

SONIC GENERATIONS (360/PS3/Steam) / 2011

 
  1. Rooftop Run : Act 1. A fell in love with this song at first listening...The best thing is that it's so different from the original that it seems completely another song. And only for that it deserves the first place.
  2. Rival Battle : Metal Sonic
  3. Rival Battle : Shadow the Hedgehog
  4. Chemical Plant : Act 2
  5. Rival Battle : Metal Sonic (US ver.)
  6. Challenge / Mission 1 (Super Sonic Racing)
  7. Crisis City : Act 1
  8. Boss Battle : Perfect Chaos Pt-I
  9. City Escape : Act 1
  10. Crisis City : Act 2

Special mentions: City Escape : Act 2, Challenge / Mission 5 (Sonic 3D Blast Saturn Title/You're My Hero) & Rooftop Run : Act 2

SONIC GENERATIONS (3DS) / 2011

 
  1. Special Stage (I gotta admit it, dance songs are my weak point...)
  2. Boss Battle : Big Arms. Best remix of a classic theme...EVER.
  3. Boss Battle : Biolizard
  4. Emerald Coast : Act 2
  5. Emerald Coast : Act 1
  6. Water Palace : Act 2
  7. End Roll Medley ver.2
  8. Radical Highway : Act 1
  9. Tropical Resort : Act 2
  10. Boss Battle : Egg Emperor

Special mentions: Mushroom Hill : Act 1, Casino Night : Act 2

And that's all for today...

Second day's list. Sonic 3 was supposed to go up today but then I realized yall did the separate games thing(booo). I typed up an SA1 one yesterday too thankfully.
 

Sonic Adventure 1
1. Theme of Gamma
2. Theme of Tikal
3.  Pleasure Castle
4. Azure Blue World
5. At Dawn
6. Dilapidated Way
7 . Blue Star 
8. Open Your Heart
9. Mechanical Resonance (Final Egg )
10. Crazy Robo


 

- I had a hard time deciding between Gamma's theme and Tikal's theme for the top spot. Gamma's won out because in the end I felt it's less repetitive. Feels kinda like a nitpick though. Both are pretty excellent. Very ambivalent and tragic songs for both chars. Kinda says something about my tastes that they're the only character themes in a game known for it's character themes that made the list though.

- Platforming around that big ass castle in Adventure to this sticks out in my mind whenever I think of this game, and I think the song is a huge part. A lot of people cite Speed Highway as Sonic Adventure's big moment, but it's Sonic running all over that castle with the park in full swing for me.

Azure Blue World is like...the third or fourth best way to start a game. The guitars in the second half are legendary.

-Casinopolis had some hot ones all throughout but Dilapidated Way is the standout. Not sure why it's playing in a sewer, but whatever. Blue Star gets props for making my embarrassing amount of time spent as a kid suffering against those slot machines bearable.

Most underrated song in the game I think? As far as final level themes go it doesnt get better than this in the series.

So, starting off my list, is probably one of my favorite Sonic games, Sonic Generations:

1: City Escape (Classic): Songs that have memories behind them can affect how someone feels about them. This particular song has very fond memories for me. This is probably my mom's favorite song from the Sonic franchise, and so, being able to share my favorite franchise is such a happy feeling, and so this song really ranks number one for all Sonic songs, because it is so special to me. 

2: Crisis City (Classic): This song is so energetic. Compared to the original version, this one instantly gives me the image of Sonic running at supersonic speed, and so this song really gets my blood pumping!  

3: Sky Sanctuary (Classic): I don't know how they made each Classic soundtrack in Generations so good, but this again, just felt so alive and again, energetic. 

4: Speed Highway (Classic): Evokes the same feelings as the other ones.

5: Rooftop Run (Modern): The first one of the Modern soundtracks in my list, and this one is just so rich! It is so happy, and when I first played this level, I almost cried out of sheer bliss, because of how the visuals were, but the music really made it that much more emotional for me. And I got like that maybe because I love Sonic Unleashed so much!

6: Planet Wisp (Modern): Sonic Color vibes. 

7: vs Perfect Chaos (Open Your Heart): Perfect remix to a perfect song.

8: Sky Sanctuary (Modern): I feel like I'm flying with this song.

9: Mission (Super Sonic Racing) So dog gone catchy!

10: Chemical Plant Zone (Modern): The cool thing about the music that it sounds like water going down a tube. That's so awesome!

And that's my top ten. Was pretty hard to choose because the whole soundtrack is so beautiful and amazing, just like the game.

Round 2. I was going to go for the Dimps games but decided to go for some classic era games.

Sonic the Hedgehog (Master System/Game Gear)

Spoiler

1. Labyrinth Zone - Really like how noir and catchy the song sounds like making it my favorite in the entire game, even prefering it to the Mega Drive version.
2. Bridge Zone
3. Jungle Zone - For some reason sounds like the Tomato Store from Shenmue and why I like it.
4. Sky Base Zone - Just a shame that the song is very short as I like the fast pace.
5. Ending
6. Green Hill Zone
7. Boss - Nice little ditty.
8. Scrap Brain Zone
9. Special Stage
10. Title Screen

I also really like the unused Marble Zone song in the game and a better conversion than Green Hill.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (Mega Drive/Genesis)

Spoiler

1. Metropolis Zone - It just gets into my head very easily and like its attempt to use a guitar.
2. Mystic Cave Zone (2P)
3. Chemical Plant Zone
4. Emerald Hill Zone
5. Aquatic Ruin Zone
6. Casino Night Zone
7. Mystic Cave Zone
8. Wing Fortress Zone
9. Death Egg Zone 2 (Final Boss) - This is one of my favorite boss themes in the series as it sounds like a dramatic military march.
10. Boss
x. Hill Top Zone
x. Special Stage
x. Casino Night Zone (2P)
x. Death Egg Zone 1 - Just a shame that in the game you hear the first 5 seconds of this song as I like how mysterious and spacey the song feels.
x. All Clear
x. Staff Roll

This was a bit hard to decide after the first two as I really like the soundtrack and could fit into any position hence why so many honorable mentions.

Sonic Spinball (Mega Drive)

Spoiler

1. Lava Powerhouse  - I really like the pace of the song, how the grungey tone fits with the setting and the use of the PSG that for a GEMS song rarely used.

2. The Machine
3. Toxic Caves
4. Bonus Stage
5. Boss
6. Showdown
7. Intro
8. Title Screen

Normally I would comment a song or two but this time I felt like commenting the soundtrack. This game uses the GEMS sound engine made by Sega of America, used in over 180 games and most of the non-EA American made games used it, even a Brazilian made game too. Noticeable good examples were the Tommy Tallarico stuff (Global Gladiators, Cool Spot) because he used samples to mask its weakness and ones from Mark Miller (Earthworm Jim, RoboCop vs the Terminator); the rest were either very bland, tinny sounding, have bad instrument choices or tried their best with it like with Comix Zone. GEMS along with Sound Images are the reasons why the Mega Drive has a bad name in terms of music and even some composers complained about it such as Jon Holland (Vectorman) and Jesper Kyd who decided to use his own engine for better results. Even EA didn't use it and used their own apart from Madden 96 who Tommy Tallarico was involved. Thankfully this is the only Sonic game that used this sound engine and all things considered did a decent job on it.

What made GEMS worse was that until better MD sound emulation came about it had a detune bug making some songs really hard to listen, Comix Zone was really affected by this. As for The Machine, you could hear it clear on that example the poor emulation and that's why real hardware versions were provided to have a fairer listen. It's why it's been hard to describe why I liked the music of The Machine.

Speaking of which, Spinball had some minor adjustments and I prefer the PAL version in terms of the Intro (longer, not slower) and the faster paced/bug fixed Lava Powerhouse. When I heard the US versions for the first time, it was a bit strange.

Sonic 3D (Mega Drive)

Spoiler

1. Spring Stadium Zone Act 1 - I really like how upbeat the song is and cheerfully fits with the setting. The song reminds me of a Mario Golf song for some reason.
2. Rusty Ruin Zone Act 1
3. Green Grove Zone Act 1
4. Green Grove Zone Act 2
5. Diamond Dust Zone Act 1
6. Panic Puppet Zone Act 2
7. Panic Puppet Zone Act 1
8. Special Stage
9. Boss 1
10. Staff Roll
x. Volcano Valley Zone Act 1
x. Gene Gadget Zone Act 2
x. Rusty Ruin Zone Act 2
x. Spring Stadium Zone Act 2

Sonic Drift

Spoiler

1. Spring Yard - I really like the intro to this song and why its my favorite out of the game. It's repetitive but in tune.
2. Labyrinth - It tries to capture the underwater feeling well.
3. Title
4. Credits - The last really nice sounding song in the game that I can vote on, it's repetitive but in tune.
5. Scrap Brain
6. Marble
7. Green Hill
8. Star Light - Ouch...

The Options Screen, Course/Driver Select and the Invincibility are some of the nicer sounding songs in the game but they are not part of the voting so in terms of voting, after 4 which one is the most tolerable that went to Scrap Brain. The last two even hurt my ears, sound cacophonic despite being tone deaf and normally I like listening to Master System and Game Gear music. I can see how the composer wanted to make those two sound complex but the PSG just can't do it well.

I'll go with SA1 and CD (JP/EU) for this one

Sonic Adventure 1 (I fucking love this one)

Sonic CD (JP/EU) ('tis one's beautiful)

Red Barrage is probably my favourite of SA1's soundtrack, it's got a sax, a cool sounding lead synth and feels pretty cool and urgent at parts. Crazy Robo felt like a fitting track for Gamma's last battle considering his story. Knuckles' theme from SA1 is imo one of the better of his, even if I do enjoy his SA2 version. Also sneaked in Big's "And ... Fish Hits" just because it never fails to get me anxious and because it sounds like something out of a game show.

I honestly felt a bit guilty having to even compare each track on how much I enjoy one- because Sonic CD's JP/EU soundtrack is blissful - I couldn't even rate one without
saying all of the tracks were good. Stardust Speedway's Good Future variant is really cheery and energetic (but most good Futures in this game are, as an awesome reward), so I always try to make one whenever I play the game - whether I intended to get a good ending or not - it's just that good. I love Wacky Workbech's Bad Future theme, something about it sounds menacing at the beginning and yet so robotic - if that even makes sense to put..? Tidal Tempest's Past theme is interesting for it's eerie vibe and like the rest of the Past themes - I like how they wanted to get the point across with them being in the past by having them make use of the Sound chip within the SEGA CD unlike the others, gave them a nice charm.

Alright. It's time for my Round 2 and I'm gonna say this right now, choosing between songs for this one was hard as balls. Every cut I made felt like a stab to the heart. Unleashed's soundtrack is so goddamn beautiful it hurts. And now that it's been out for almost a decade, it's got nostalgia on it's side just like Heroes did. A Sonic soundtrack hasn't come out after this that I've found to be just about perfect like this one. Back when I played the game, already the music from the Empire City hub was making me feel nostalgic for those times when I was a little kid, scampering through New York City when we went to visit my Grandparents. It also helps that I'm a bit of a night owl. The city looked so much bigger back then...

Sonic Unleashed

Alright, Sonic 3 time. This is my second favorite OST in the series with Sonic Adventure kind of rounding out a trio. Excellent stuff that only gets more unique due to the limitations of the genesis sound chip. The touch of Micheal also helps.

Sonic the Hedgehog 3
1. Chrome Gadget
2. Hydrocity Act 2
3. Endless Mine
4. Angel Island Zone Act 2
5. Balloon Park
6. Big Arm
7. Hydrocity Zone Act 1
8. Marble Garden Act 1
9. Desert Palace
10. Ice Cap Act 1
 

Second best song in the series. Been hoping some composer would realize this exists and remix it but it's probably going to be lost to time. It's a shame. The melody is unreal. Great song for a beautiful level. This, along with some other godly songs make the multiplayer mode stuck in a corner off to the side lowkey the highlight of the game's OST for me. I think Desert Palace was the first song in the series that really grabbed my attention and made me go "oh...OH SHIT." but it doesn't get much love now either.

- Sonic 3 says fuck water level conventions and gives you one of the fastest levels in the series with a track fast paced enough to go with it. I swear the track is synced up pretty well with the very first part of the level leading up to you bursting into the more open, violet second part.

-Escape From the City is my favorite video game tune, the first level with that song playing in the background is a big reason why I absolutely fell in love with the character as a kid. I always thought that level was pretty much the coolest thing I ever saw back then.

Round 3 is for the game that made me a fan of the series, Sonic Adventure 2: Battle. Or just Adventure 2. Another super hard one. Two songs wrestled for first place but goddamn have you guys heard the full version of that Knuckles song. It's fire! Had a hard time placing It Doesn't Matter. It just beat out Live and Learn for being slightly more nostalgic to me. Somehow. Maybe because I've been the hero story more than I have the last story. Also, I discovered while I was writing songs down that I really like the Tails music. Huh. 

Sonic Adventure 2

  1.   Unknown from M.E. ...theme of "KNUCKLES"

  2.  E.G.G.M.A.N. ...theme of "DR. EGGMAN"

  3.  On The Edge ...for Eternal Engine

  4.  Supporting Me ...for Biolizard

  5.  Boss: Suitable Opponent

  6.  It Doesn't Matter ...theme of "SONIC"

  7.  Live & Learn ...main theme of "Sonic Adventure 2" (VS. Finalhazard)

  8.  Keys The Ruin ...for Pyramid Cave

  9.  Space Trip Steps ...for Meteor Herd

10.  2-Player Select (SA2 Battle)

  x.   This Way Out ...for Prison Lane

  x.   Down In The Base ...for Hidden Base

  x.   Boss: Masters Of The Desert

  x.   Remember Me? - M.F.M. ...for Iron Gate

  x.  Trespasser ...for Lost Colony

  x.  Soarin' Over Space ...for Cosmic Wall

  x.  Lovely Gate 3 ...for Egg Quarters

  x.  Highway In The Sky ...for Final Rush

The other half of my Sonic 3 list today. IT'S THE SAME GAME so there's not much to say.

Sonic and Knuckles
Flying Battery Zone Act 1
Lava Reef Act 1
Lava Reef Act 2/Hidden Palace
The Doomsday Zone
Mushroom Hill Act 1
Sky Sanctuary
Flying Battery Act 2
Boss Theme
Knuckle’s Theme
Sandopolis Act 1
Title Theme

Flying Battery is this high flying red alert shit that just screams "danger" and I love it to pieces. It gives the level this treacherous feeling, y'know? Like when I hear it I think of the parts outside the ship where you can fall out or the falling spike balls and shit.

- The first part of Lava Reef up until the end of Sky Sanctuary is one of my favorite sequences in the series. The song fits the charge into the most dangerous territory yet. The song is really fast paced and triumphant which only makes it all the more effective when the mood switches entirely for Act 2. Another one for the "Songs being starved and abandoned by their owner sega" list.

Mushroom Hill fills this breather level niche in the game with a level that's really laid back and bouncy compared to the ones around it.  The track suits it perfectly even if it's a little simple. 

This kind of goofy kung fu theme fits Knuckles more to me and I don't know what team Sonic 3 is on here.
