Hmm, I'll have to look for those. DW8(XL) music hasn't impressed me at all so far; it's all just background noise to me, and nothing gets me humming and playing it in my head after the battle, and nothing has generated an emotional response like DW4's Eve or DW5's Great Red Spirit has.

Maybe I just haven't spent enough time with the game, but I'm finding this stuff leagues beneath DW4's music--it's been a ridiculous number of years since I've played DW4, but when I hear the themes I can still remember the stages they belong to.

Oh, yes. the tracks I loved the most were DW5 Yi Ling and DW4 Guan Du. DW4 and 5 had the best music.

While not in my top 10 it's certainly my most favorite battle preparation track especially when coupled with narration:

DW3 version is quite nice as well although i still prefer the original:

She Knows The Way from the DW6 soundtrack is still my favorite all around song. Everytime I read or write, that's always on repeat for me. So soothing.

DW7E main theme is the one I often used in background when studying. Helped me to focus on the tasks for some reason:

I'm happy to see this topic, after clearly remembering being told by 3 people in the DW9 thread that DW music doesn't stand out, and me not knowing what they are talking about :mrgreen:

Anyways, if I had to pick 10 of my favorites, it would be hard, since there's a lot of good tracks I like, but here is 10 I would pick, only the first would be in order since that is my favorite:

1- Anger and Grudge
2- In Full Bloom
3- Geniuses Sanctuaries
4- Large Feather
5- Male Roar
6- Fate Corrodes Me
7- Struggle For Existence
8- Heavy Gauge
9- The Battle Without Justice
10- Endless Sorrow
And an honorable mention for a peaceful one I always liked- The Mountain Knows

If you want to listen to any of them and let me know what you think, check this :mrgreen:

Personally, I'm very happy with the DW9 music, despite of considering it to be the 2nd worst game right next to dw6. And I like DW6 music as well btw. My least favourite in terms of music would be DW5 probably. Ironically, it's probably my 3rd or 2nd favourite in terms of gameplay though (including XL expansion) :)

Ah I completely skipped DW9 after having such high hopes for it too, but did check out the new music when it came out, so I didn't think it sounded too bad, even though the actual gameplay made me not get the game. I think 4 has some pretty good music too, and maybe 8 had the worst in far of new music, but I'm not sure.

Just checked out Wang Yi's Endless Sorrow. Nice, I like it. Valvatorez, is it possible to find the translation of the lyrics anywhere?

Edit: Guo Jia's theme with lyrics performed by...his own voice actor Junichi Miyake :D https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qyAS5EMSjCw
