What are your thoughts on the music of the XIII series?

The music was spectacular. That's the one thing the series always does right it seems. I thought no one could match Uematsu-San, but even with the transition starting at X, they've always kept the quality up.

Until LR, I would have said graphics are the other area that FF always nails.

The first 2 are gorgeous. LR was okay...

Really really really good.

Maybe my favorite FF soundtracks or very nearly my tippy toppers.

Well LR, for the most part, was remixes from XIII and XIII-2, if not taking the tracks itself...

Just to add, going by vgmdb, the LR Soundtrack (that only had the new music created for the game) was longer than either FFXIII and FFXIII-2's soundtrack (barring the plus OSTs).

They really went all out on LR in terms of music :3

Music was one of the few good aspects of the FFXIII series


Pretty much this. FFXIII has some of the best tracks Ive heard since the glorious Chrono Trigger/Cross and most Falcom games. Thats pretty impressive.. but then again the one thing SqEn does a great job on consistently and always delivers is their OSTs.

FF13-2, for being so horrid at least had a few nice new tracks, altho the FF13 recycled tracks still outshone most of them.

FF13-3... meh.

The soundtracks of all three are among my most listened. Call me crazy but I loved the vocal tracks in FFXIII-2. The lyrics might have been bad but I like having vocal tracks.

Same here. And the vocal tracks from XIII-2 are among my favorite tracks.

I enjoyed all of the music... the main Lightning theme is probably one of my favorites and I was always happy whenever it played during a battle. I can only recall one time in LR where it plays, which I believe was the final dungeon while wondering around outside of a battle.

XIII is my favorite OST of the generation.

13-2 and LR are just ok.
