Before you post any Dream Team or Sticker Star tracks, I'm strictly talking about the platformers here. Galaxy 2 had an amazing soundtrack. But since then, the music has been pretty weak in sidescrolling Mario games, with only a few occasional stand outs here and there.

You've pretty much got it.

The music in the New Super Mario Bros. games isn't bad per se; it's not spectacular but it gets the job the done. I think it's the frequent recycling that has left a bad taste in gamers' mouths.

Galaxy 2. Pretty sure the music in SM3DW will be amazing.

I still think Galaxy 1 was far superior to 2, music-wise.

I guess I need to take another look at 2, huh?

NSMBU. My favorite tracks are the athletic theme and the Peach's Castle theme.

They are good, but why do you think Nintendo made a few new tracks, and then reused a bunch of old ones? Don't they care about the quality of their games? Or are they "just products, and not art"?

Here's a question: Who gives an honest buck? I don't.
