So I'm a huge fan of Fire Emblem's music, just about all of it. It's probably my favorite thing about the series. It's hard as hell to choose a particular title that really stands out but I'd have to say that Radiant Dawn has the best soundtrack. When I say best, I mean in sound quality as well as the songs themselves. The tracks that really shine are one's like Finale in Fear, Ascent, Dilemma, The Devoted and Pray for Victory. They have that grand, epic feel to them that I'd like to hear more of in the future.
Gaiden's OST is impressive for an 8 bit game, it manages to outshine the recent titles. I think SOV did a decent job at updating the OST, particularly Chapter 2's theme and Alm's map theme. Unfortunately, some tracks felt worse then the original. I'm citing the final map theme and Celica's map theme. The remake somehow manages to make these songs less intense. I guess this is a case of less being better.
Jugdral is my favorite continent in the series, and thus holds a special place in my heart. Tracks like Glory in Grandbell, Awakening of the Holy Knight, and The Final Holy War have this ancient, knightly feel to it. It really feels like you're in medieval times. Girl of the Spirit Forest and Light Inheritors are tied for my favorite map themes of all time. I don't know what it is, but I can listen to those songs on loop forever. And is it just me, or does Light Inheritors sound like a mix Awakening of the Holy Knight and Girl of the Spirit Forest? I consider it so, and hope it is indeed the case. That's a great touch, mixing Sigurd and Deirdre's first map themes on Seliph's first map. Thracia 776 doesn't have a single track I mildly dislike or am neutral too. I can't pick a favorite, but I can say the boss theme is the best out the entire series.
I feel like FE1 and FE3 have better soundtracks than their remakes. For example, compare https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sp5kWvaTWPY&index=13&list=PL520651E8276DB68A to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gz6ckNE9SRk&list=PL09DA3267151ABB1F&index=15
There's not too much to say other than that. I did like Shadow Dragon's take on Under the Flag. Not as hype, but it had a nice serene feeling to it. Particularly around the 00.31-00.47 mark. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6sAMZFmDShs
Proud Commander and Footsteps of Fate were cool too. Both are original tracks for FE11.
Lyn is not my favorite FE protagonist, but she does have the best personal theme. Friendship and Adventure stands out as the best map theme out of the GBA games. Softly with Grace is classic too. Binding Blade's kinda weird though. There's two seperate OSTs, Some tracks sound worse in game than on the other one. An example is In the Name of Bern. Compare.
The latter sounds better right?
It's also weird how Roy's Victory theme sounds better in FE7 than in his own game.
Sacred Stones is very underrated game in all aspects. From the somber Treasured Memories, to the playful Distant Roads, this is a solid OST. The only issue I have is with the final battle theme. It started off great with The Promised Land. Very ominous track, fitting a final level well. I'm talking about the theme that plays when you fight Fomortiis. It's not bad, it just ill fitting. I get what they were going for, but combined with how easy the boss fight is, it just put a damper on the whole thing.
Path of Radiance is only game along with Thracia 776 that lacks tracks I dislike. Not much else to say, but some noteworthy tracks are a Battle and a Beginning, A Mighty Foe, Ike's Resolution, Crimea Attacks, and Greil Mercenaries. And FE9's take on Light and Dark from FE4 is actually better than the original.
Awakening and Fates are the only games that have only a single track I can say I love. That'd be Don't speak her name and Road Taken (Both versions) respectively.
Anyways, that's enough from me, let's hear what you have to say. Do you have any particular songs you care to mention? And feel free to vote for your favorite OST.
