In the large field of awesome video game composers? Personally I think he is pretty high up there but probably not in the same league as Koji Kondo, Uematsu, Mitsuda, Sugiyama and Joe Hisaishi. I would probably rank Meguro very closely to Michiru Yamane from the Castlevania series as well as Akira Yamaoka. Thoughts and opinions?

Great Will tier.

I love his songs the most although i must give props to Akira Yamaoka, his silent hill songs are among the best in atmosphere.

Meguro is my favourite composer, period. I love a lot of video game music and listen largely to music from video games and his stuff is the truly the bomb.

Pretty up there, he is amazing.

DDS1 OST is one of the best of all time, easily would put it with the big boys like Chrono Cross, Silent Hill 2 and Donkey Kong Country 2. I think it's that good.

Meguro's upper mid for me. He has a pretty impressive track record, but I felt that many of his songs in the same genre felt kinda samey.

My favorites are Yuki Kaijura (she hasn't done much of anything outside of Xenosaga 3 for games I believe, but her work in anime is unbelievable), Motoi Sakuraba (for Valkyrie Profile / Star Ocean), and Meguro. Not sure who I'd call my favorite, but Meguro is top 3 for me.

If I were to rank him, I'd place him at mid or high. Meguro doesn't make the best music out there, but when it's good, it's really good; dude has talent.

And I'm no critic, but DDS2 and P3's final boss themes are absolute genius.

He started off good with Nocturne and DDS but his later stuff is same-y and generic.

This, but I have to give props to Hitoshi Sakimoto and Masaharu Iwata for FFT's soundtrack, Garry Schyman for Bioshock's soundtrack, the three composers behind Donkey Kong Country, and a few others for soundtracks I love.

It's all preference so who knows.

He's a good composer who puts out work that I enjoy, that's all that matters to me. I probably put him slightly above old motoi (mainly because current motoi is just overworked and has put out a bunch of crap lately).
