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?
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... --- Who cares if you disagree? You are not me; who made you king of anything? Currently playing: Final Fantasy XIII, Resident Evil 6.
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.
