** Pretty much ''all'' of the character themes are pretty awesome, but BioWare really outdid themselves with Kasumi's themes (yes, she [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dAf0VvQU7hI has]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AeBER4uuN2k more]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1RDW_2bw0Gk than]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2n8_64-DYkA one]]), especially with the haunting woodwind melody in tracks 2 & 3.

* Some doubted that ClintMansell would be able to fill in the shoes of Jack Wall. If [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lg1ElmVQ2pw Escape from Earth]] is any indication, it's time for those doubters to hang their heads in shame. Its haunting piano motif instantly became one of the most instantly recognizable sounds in the trilogy.

** [[AvertedTrope Averted]] in the case of anyone who's familiar with the films of Creator/DarrenAronofsky, as Mansell scored most if not all of them and, particularly in the cases of ''RequiemForADream'' and ''TheFountain'', generated some truly mind-blowing SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic.

* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVm_ljDSdwA Main Title]]. ''(music builds in a crescendo)'' "They called it the greatest discovery in human history. The civilizations of the galaxy call it... ''(music peaks)'' [[AC:[[TitleDrop Mass Effect]]]]." This song serves as the EstablishingCharacterMoment for the series as a whole, in a lot of ways, as main title track, much like the series itself, contains a lot of elements from classic SpaceOpera sci-fi themes.
** It gets played again in a reprise at the end of the game as the ''Normandy'' is [[RidingIntoTheSunset flying off into the sunset]], and ''again'' at the end of the second game (but only during the best ending where [[spoiler: EverybodyLives during the suicide mission]]). Yep, it's the Main Theme, alright.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oMed0AQt6g4 Final Assault]], the theme played for the final battle against [[spoiler:Saren Husk]]. It's basically an orchestrated remix of Sovereign's theme, and it is ''glorious''.
** The best part about this song is that it's a remix of Sovereign's theme, yes; but it has tones from [[spoiler:Saren's]] Theme layered on top of it. That mix pretty much expresses what the final boss is.

** Just how good is that piece of music? The Australian morning show ''Sunrise'' uses it for their finance reports (seen in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gpIMCD6J9Hc&t=3m50s this]] video).

** The original track is mostly a somber DarkReprise, leading into a ScareChord with the Normandy severely damaged - [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TLxv_g_zQkY the extended version]] shows the galaxy's denizens celebrating their heroic victory over the Reapers, and the music swells into a crescendo as the Normandy emerges from the Crucible's energy blast largely unscathed... Cue SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome. Apology accepted, [=BioWare=].

** The big one, however, is hearing "Vigil", the very first thing players experience in the Mass Effect franchise, when solving a situation peacefully (curing the genophage, uniting the Geth and Quarians).
