Awesome Music: Etrian Odyssey

Etrian Odyssey 1

Etrian Odyssey 4

In general, thanks to the live orchestration, it's a little tempting to link the whole thing. Yuzo Koshiro really blew it out of the park this time.

  • Battlefield - Storm is the normal fight music for the early dungeons. And when that's just the normal fight music...
  • The second battle music, Battlefield - Faith is my Pillar is even better, with a great mixture of moods interwoven with incredible composition that makes the piece tireless to listen to.
  • The Burning Crimson Sword Dances is easily one of the best boss themes in the series.
  • All of the music in the Scarlet Pillars land is great; The Red Stone Forest lets you know you aren't dinking around in kiddie land anymore, Led Astray In The Lost Woods is suitably grim-sounding for places like the poison-filled first cave where you must find the fuel to make the skyship go higher, and The Misty Ravine balances the mystery, wonder and danger of the second dungeon perfectly.
  • On that note, of course, Windy Plains is also fantastic as music for the first overworld area; you've got an AIRSHIP! And you're going on ADVENTURES! And then you get punched by a kangaroo.
  • The fourth dungeon theme, Library of Puppets, is an extraordinary piece that opens with a synth line before introducing a hard rocking guitar melody as the synth fades into the background, then the guitar is replaced by a saxophone before the synth comes back into prominence. It's fitting accompaniment to the raised stakes of the story's penultimate dungeon.
  • So you liked "End of the Raging Waves"? You did? Well, how about End of the Raging Winds? Warning: your ears are probably not ready for this.
  • The Legend's Successor, the theme for The Heavenbringer.
  • What better way to introduce players to the Difficulty Spike that is the Hall of Darkness than With Eyes Blazing as the normal battle music?
  • The frantic pace of The Fall of The Final Enemy, especially in the opening, perfectly sums up what it feels like to run afoul of a FOE.

Etrian Odyssey Untold

In general, the whole game made the music from the original game come alive and it shows.

Etrian Odyssey Untold 2

Etrian Mystery Dungeon

This game takes several of the best tracks of the previous games, and gives them awesome rearranges. Special mention to The Drowned City, which didn't even have an Untold remake announced.
