Awesome Music / Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil

Go To

  • Welcome To Lunatea is a Spiritual Successor of sorts to the Inquisitive Waltz from the first game, being a happy circus tune that sets the tone for the game. It's quite possibly even happier than the Inquisitive Waltz.
  • Lolo's Character Theme is bubbly, upbeat, and just as adorable and sweet as Lolo. Especially the second variation, where her theme is extended a bit.
  • Going to Lunatea. Nothing's better to start an adventure.

  • The World Map theme, "Lunatea Waltz", is a slower-paced and calming version of "Going to Lunatea". The music gives an old time carnival feeling and atmosphere.
  • Path of Goddess Claire is an incredibly calming and atmospheric tune that fits the level really well. And that's only half of the theme. In-game, it's a Variable Mix between that and Cave of Glimmer Moss, which goes with it beautifully.
  • High Priestess, a slower variation of Path of Goddesss Claire and character theme to the High Priestess, is calming and honorable, which is appropriate as Lolo fully becomes a Priestess. It's played on an unusual string sound that gives it an exotic and mysterious, yet calming mood.
  • Joilant. Anyone who loves the circus will feel very nostalgic listening to this.
  • Jungle Cruise and its remix are fast-paced and fun songs for your first slide level, packing in a beautiful flute solo.

  • Stepping Wind is one of the best fictional-language songs ever. It is interesting to note that an English translation of this theme exists! And just in time for the Phantasy Reverie remake, we have a cover by Fubuki Shirakami and Korone Inugami!
  • Maze of Memories/Moonlight Museum. Originating from Klonoa: Moonlight Museum, this version of the song gives the level a mysterious but lonely atmosphere.
  • Thank You, Popka is heard as Popka snaps Lolo out of her depression and encourages her to help Klonoa. This version of Lolo's Theme starts out sad, but builds up to be more optimistic, reflecting Lolo's attitude getting better alongside reflecting Popka's loyalty and friendship with her.
  • The Sorrow Revives is a Dark Reprise of "Going to Lunatea" that carries the sense of impending doom as the Kingdom of Sorrow reveals itself.

  • Hyuponia, the theme of the first level of Kingdom of Sorrow, is an eight minute masterpiece that takes numerous tracks from both this game and Door to Phantomile and distorts and mixes them into a mysterious, beautiful and melancholy piece that is both fitting for the ruined kingdom's sad and lonely atmosphere and for the last regular platforming level in the game.
  • The King of Sorrow's theme, another absolutely beautiful song. It perfectly captures how tragic the character is. Its Battle version is much more chaotic following his Villainous Breakdown and you have to break away his rejection of the world.
  • Ark Ver. 2 is an exciting theme that hits the ground running for one of the most action-packed levels in the game.
  • Mirage is a ridiculously intense and badass theme befitting your final slide level, with one of the most epic pan-flute solos in any track ever.
  • "Leorina's Theme," Leorina's normal Leitmotif, is a short and simple, yet very effective tune played on a harpsichord. It has a sonata-like melody that gives it an elegant mood, though the fact that it's in a minor key also makes it very sinister. There's also the simply named "Leorina," an expanded version of the song that plays during Leorina's more villainous moments. It makes the tune longer and more varied, and it also adds a choir and other instruments to make it stand out.
  • Cursed Leorina is the theme for the Climax Boss, and it kicks in during the lead-up cutscene as the power of sorrow forcibly transforms Leorina. When the transformation is complete and the fight is on, it becomes a lot more frantic to show this boss means business.
  • The haunted house gets some deliciously creepy music. There's also Make Believe in the same mood.
  • "Quenchless Curiosity," the theme of the Momett House, is a jaunty ragtime piece played on an out-of-tune piano. It creates an old-timey circus mood that is perfect for Momett as the showman of Joilant Fun Park.
  • Farewell Again makes for a perfect bittersweet Tear Jerker as Lolo says goodbye to Klonoa.
  • The end credits theme, Traveler, is a complete contrast to the credits to Door to Phantomile. The song is a remixed version of "Going to Lunatea" which is more upbeat, peaceful, and emphasises the "Sweet" in bittersweet over the "Bitter" in the first game. This is accompanied by showing the citizens of Lunatea after Klonoa left getting along with each other.
