The series in general. Not just one of the games. It feels as though the entire soundtrack is just lousy with some scattered good themes here and there. Like both of Bowser's themes in the Wii/3ds version, the atheletic theme in NSMBU, and the fortress boss remix in NSMB2.

They switch composers every game, and they use composers who have made worked on good soundtracks on other games (Koji Kondo, etc). But the New Super Mario Bros. soundtrack just feels so weak all around.

I think it's just too...well too generic and heavily over used.

It isn't. Its perfectly fine, if a little, lets say, bland at some points.

I don't really get why they reuse so many songs if they use completely different composers every game. Sure, we get new songs every game. But it's usually restricted to map themes, the credits theme, and the title theme.

Eh, maybe it's just me. I have zero problems with the soundtrack in any Kirby game.

I think part nostalgia for some of the songs.

Eh, me neither. Though that's only a case with NSMB2. Only about three tracks were reused in NSMBW, and those were taken out in NSMBU, which proceeded to use NSMBW's original tracks, along with its own original tracks.

I'm not sure. For me, it's the low point of the franchise. I really enjoy everything else, but the music is very "meh" IMO. Not up to Galaxy/Sunshine type levels, for sure.

Feh. I barely remember Sunshine's tracks besides the main hub's and Platforms 'O Plenty (for the wrong reasons).

It's not bad, they just used the same songs in too many games.
Video games are awesome.
