I've gotta share one, the new Sora no Kiseki Zanmai remix of a battle theme from the 3rd. It's a general favorite in the fan community but never specifically one of mine from that game (I like Genuine Devil myself). But, wow, this one blows me away, and I'm having a hard time tearing myself away from it. Add a guitar to anything to make it better, I guess...the only exception would be I'm a sucker for flutes (and sometimes pianos).

If you liked that, Alternative Saga has my next favorite version of the song.

And +1 for the nonsensically Engrishy title (though far from the worst)...anyway, this one's been growing on me over time. Hope you enjoy!

Trails in the Sky for the PSP, has the best writing and setting I've seen in a RPG. Please support it so the sequels can come out.

I literally just posted this one...I also wanted to point out there's more to Falcom sountracks than just battle themes, though one of you did, admittedly, post Firm Strength.

Yeah I know those are different versions.

The Zero/Ao/SC and Third soundtracks are some of my favorites, but the battle themes definitely stand out.

The first was a repeat; the one we haven't posted yet was the original one in the game, of all things.

Yeah, I wonder about that. Either I have really bad taste, or folks have only tend to listen to the few obvious ones. What about Conflicting Passions? Genuine Devil? Concentrate All Firepower? Till the Night of Glory JDK? I submitted the objective best of the bunch to the gauntlet, though. And then there are the 'forgotten' battle themes that even I don't miss *that* much... EDIT: Oh, add to my short list Enormous Fright SAV. It's a bit gimmicky and thematically the same as Geniuine Devil, which I like better, but it gets overshadowed and forgotten by Fateful Confrontation and Fate of the Fairies.
For other stuff, try Illusionary Blue Flower, Water Plants and the Blue Sky Evolution ver., Afternoon in Crossbell (original), Ancient Pulsation (Evolution ver.), Killing Bear (original), The Castle at Dusk (both cool and milld spoilery if you played Trails in the Sky otherwise not worth your time), Cradle Where Thoughts Rest, Looking Up at the Sky (normal and vocal), Things Have Started Moving, Delusion of a Thousand Years, and last, but certainly not least, To Be Continuted!. Some were omitted for being impossible to rid of spoilers.

In addition to all of that, I also like the other route themes in Zero, but nobody ever talks about those. I'm surprised A Light Illuminating The Depths or Mound of Hollow Light hasn't come up, either.

Anyways, Zero is my favorite game OST of all time, though, and I don't see that ever changing. There are only a few tracks on there I don't care for.
