Highlights of the soundtrack

FFs have always had superb music. The risks this game took didn't work, but that didn't prevent it from having some superb songs that rival anything else in the series. Luckily, fans seem to be noticing this, as the hate for the game is dissipating.

Anyway, with that preamble out of the way, this topic is for us to list, and maybe link, our favorite songs.

Hope's Theme--I was surprised at just how beautiful this is.

Caius' Theme- a One-Winged Angel clone done right

and all three of the battle songs:
Paradigm Shift https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jzQTkDYuyBg
The Last Hunters https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9MR3r_DWrA
Dash https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7-tiypvCNo

Having 3 superb battle songs really is quite an achievement; Paradigm Shift is likely my favorite.

I could include more--there's actually a lot of gems in the soundtrack, but I'll open the topic up. Your favorite tracks? Which am I forgetting?

Good choices! This is easily my favorite track from FFXIII-2, and one of my favorites from the entire series (and that designation is exclusive to this version of the song):

I really like The Ruler of Time and Space; the first minute or so makes you feel like you are in a really epic battle (fitting for the battles that it plays in).

Edit: I actually love every battle song in both games, I think. Desperate Struggle, Saber's Edge, Blinded by Light, Paradigm Shift, Last Hunter, The Ruler of Time and Space...

The chocobo song I thought was hilarious.

It matched the plot. Which also was hilarious XD

I've been enjoying the OST ever since I finished it. Althought there's a song that I couldn't find anywhere, I remember that it was played when you're in Acadamia 4XX AF command room with Hope and Alyssa after giving out the Gravitron cores or something.

But anyway, here are some of the best songs in the game.

Battle Themes:

And many other songs that is worthy of listening outside the game...

New Bodhum is another great song, very lush and evocative-- arguably my favorite of the vocal tracks
