There is no bad music in Trails, only tracks that are marginally less awesome than others.
Trails in the Sky FC
- While the original game lacked a vocal opening theme, the aptly-named Sora no Kiseki still gets the job done. Of course, a beautiful vocal version would later be released. And then FC Evolution decided to take it one step further and used an amazing new vocal version for it's opening theme.
- Sophisticated Fight, the normal battle music, is a fun little tune to help ease you into the adventure.
- Rock on the Road, a pleasant "outdoors" theme with hints of World of Mana or Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles.
- Out of the town themes, the catchy and relaxing Factory City of Zeiss stands out.
- Challenger Invited, used in arena battles and Big Damn Hero moments.
- Silver Will, no matter which of its many arrangements you listen to, is more than worth mentioning, since it isn't an overstatement to say that this music may be even more popular than the game itself. Hell, it's even listed as the Best RPG Battle theme on 2ch and Youtube! And apparently, it was so good, it got a vocal version, Silver Will, Golden Wings, that serves as SC's opening theme. And that's not getting into version on the vocal collection or the SC Evolution version. Now in English!
- Hollow Light of the Sealed Land, the final dungeon theme from FC, really hammers in the power of the ancient civilization and gets you hyped for the final dungeon.
- Hoshi no Arika. or "The Whereabouts of the Stars," ranked first on several "Best Game Theme Song Ever" lists in Japan. There's also an English cover, and the lyrics are no less touching than the originals.
- A Cat Relaxing in the Sun is the perfect music to unwind to after tackling a bunch of quests at the Guild. It's also the background music of the Bright family house.
Trails in the Sky SC
- Strepitoso Fight is the perfect successor to "Sophisticated Fight" as the groovy theme of the standard battles.
- Looking Up at the Sky is a very pleasant piece to listen to whilst running through those fields to your next destination. Better yet, it got a Vocal Version and an Instrumental Ver. based on said vocal version. But wait, there's more! The vocal version was re-arranged and used as the ending theme of The 3rd!
- Fight With Assailant, a hard rock-y early boss theme.
- The appropriately-named theme of The Enforcers really helps give you an idea of how dangerous these people are. Parts of said piece are also used in their awesome battle theme, Fateful Confrontation. The Super Arranged Version of "The Enforcers" is just as amazing and finally appears in The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV as McBurn's true demon boss fight.
- The Fate of the Fairies, just to give you a more action-y battle theme for the final level.
- A Lurking Shadow in the Wilderness, an ominous but powerful theme serving as the Leitmotif for the Erebonian Empire.
- The Merciless Savior is the perfect theme to finally take down Weissmann once and for all.
- The Dream Continues is an absolutely beautiful song that plays during several of SC's most poignant moments and is definitely worth a listen.
- I swear..., the ending of SC, will almost assuredly leave you in tears from its beauty. Naturally, this also applies to the special vocal version and the SC Evolution Version.
- Unleashed Greatest Treasure, the music that plays when the Aureole appears, is nothing short of spectacular.
Trails in the Sky the 3rd
- Cry for me, cry for you, the opening to the 3rd, finally brings the rock part of the Sky soundtracks and puts it into the opening. And then there's the new rendition in the 3rd Evolution...
- Determination of Fight continues the Sky series' trend of fun tunes to take down those standard monsters to.
- Fighting Right On, the gritty standard boss theme.
- Till the Night of Glory, the kind of "action-y" theme you want to hear whilst you take down some imposters. Or struggling to beat the real Agate with the Ravens.
- Beard the Lion in His Den, for the "return" to Leiston Fortress.
- Masquerade of Lies, an incredibly epic theme for some underwhelming fights. The clue is in the title.
- Overdosing Heavenly Bliss is a fittingly epic theme to listen to as you fight the guardian copies, one of which is Cassius Bright.
- The Final Choice, for Olivier's glorious declaration of war against Osborne. Returns in Cold Steel.
- Castle of Illusions ~ Phantasmagoria gives the appropriate feeling of tension and anticipation needed for any half-decent final dungeon theme.
