The American soundtrack is good on its own but terrible when compared to the Japanese one.

>> No.1233841

>>1232429
I disagree, it's still good compared to the Japanese one. The thing is, the Japanese soundtrack is more fitting to the levels, that's why it's better.
Also, Sonic Boom > Cosmic Eternity

The American soundtrack is some really cool music to play with. The Japanese soundtrack is the reason Sonic CD exists.

Blend them together. You know you can do that, right? Find the MP3 folder and replace each individual file with a favorite from either soundtrack or you can just use a remix or something from a different game if you feel like it. Be sure to keep the same filename though or it won't play! Ex: Replace track 01 with another MP3 that is also called track 01. Say yes when it asks you to overwrite.

JP doesn't sound like videogame music. It sounds like fucking club shit. My god, I cringe when I hear the horrible fucking hip-hop/rap garbage on the opening, and it gets much worse later on with "songs" that don't even fit the fucking level, instead sounding like they picked some random hip-hop diva to record some random shit for it.

Opinions. Cosmic Eternity has a really catchy tune and beat, with some lyrics not screaming cheesy all the way around. Sonic Boom is okay, but it didn't give me the same vibes as CE, it's like I was listening to some average Saturday morning opening. Not forgettable, but not amazing.

That's not what I mean and you know it.

Why, every time I argue something that makes perfect sense, does everyone that argues back at me use faulty logic and stupidity to try to defend their flawed ideas? Really shows you how much you all seem to cling to poorly thought out ideas and defend things that can't be defended.

>> No.1234074

>>1234060
Yeah, because I go around saying shitty video game music doesn't sound like video game music even though that makes no fucking sense. What does video game music sound like then? Anything as long as isn't genres you don't like, right?

>> No.1234084

>>1234056
The only music with lyrics are the metalic madness ones and they don't feature a "diva". Try again.

>>1234060
Why don't you look up "videogame music" or better yet tell some composer about "videogame music"? There is no such thing as videogame music, only music, which fits in a lot of genres. SCDJ took the Disco-hip hop route, which was really popular at the time (and Sega Rally really made me like it).

>> No.1234131

God I hate the fucking japanese music. It really sounds out of place and definitely "of its time". Compared to the other games it really doesn't fit in anywhere as well as the other game music. But then again the game itself is possibly the weakest entry of the classic sonic games so it's comparing different kinds of shit floating in a dirty old toilet bowl.

There's this great place for people who aren't able to articulate themselves rationally. I think you should go there instead.

>>1236454
> Looking over the game, SOA decided that they wanted to change the soundtrack already present within. The original tracks created for the Japanese release (which remained in the original European releases), they felt, were simply too similar to other electronic dance scores that were being produced at the time. Wanting to create its own identity, Sega contracted recently hired in-house musician Spencer Nilsen to rescore the entire game, giving him less than a month to do so.

I give the slight edge to the US soundtrack because it gave me one of my favorite Sonic tunes of all time.

The JP soundtrack did "fit" more though.

>> No.1239991

I started with the US soundtrack. It was boring save for a few songs. Literal background music. The past themes on the other hand were energetic and catchy. When I discovered the JP soundtrack, the rest is history.

Seriously, the sampling and vocals only made it stand out more. Imagine what we could've gotten from musicians if the JP soundtrack was left untouched. Nielsen is cancer.

Can't like both? Or is your taste so bad you strongly favor one over the other?
