    The shame!

    I don't really like Akuma's theme. Neither the original nor EX versions. The HD Remix one was kinda cool but other than that... meh

    I didn't either. But SF4's Akuma theme is great. Actually adds a melody to the song.

    Prior to that, the best version of his theme was Anniversary Collection's Arranged version.

    I was just in training mode and decided to pick lair of the four kings stage for the hell of it, and after listening to the BGM properly... It kicks so much ass. I love it.

    Urien's theme:

    I really want to hear the part when the song starts to fade out...

    The part where it fades out is the part where it starts to sound like Crazy Chili Dog.

    Anyway, it's better than the original, but I still want to hear the rest before judging it entirely.

    i could see that for the more orchestrated stuff (like Necalli's theme), but music like China stage, India stage, Laura theme, etc still feel very gamey to me, with distinct and catchy melodies that loop well.

    I like Urien's theme. But on other sites and on youtube, the general reception seems to be "It isn't crazy chili dog, so it's shit." The close mindedness is appalling.

    Need to have the full theme to pass judgement on it. My personal preferences are:

    New awesome theme (SFV Karin) > Good rendition of old theme (like Alex's SFV) > Meh new theme (Laura) > Meh rendition (SFV's standard)

    That said, for most people Bad Remake > Bad new theme and the urge for nostalgia is such that most new thing are automatically bad. The reaction it's not surprising although it is depressing because it encourages Capcom to keep betting on the umpteenth tired old remake of the same theme. Crazy Chili Dog has appeared only once before, so it wouldn't feel repetitive but it must be good anyway.

    Also, the Nile theme must return. It didn't fit Urien too well, but tied to an staged properly crafted to it (hell, just the beach stage at night with people having a wild night party on it) would be damn awesome.

    Karin's SF5 theme isn't technically new either. It's a remix of Simple Rating.

    Except for the training stage SFV stage music is slumber party level.

    So, final results. Stage themes are mostly dog shit that should be played in hotel lobbies or old folks homes since it puts people to sleep.

    Character themes have some okay remixes but some of them are utter travesties, like Juri's theme.

    5/10.

    Better than SF4's soundtrack but not by much.

    Bottom 10 SF5 themes:

    10. City in Chaos. Sounds more like Applebee's in Post-food Nap.
    9. Bustling Side Street. No identity whatsoever, could be played on literally any stage.
    8. Ryu's theme. Same old shit, how is everyone not sick to death of it already?
    7. Ring of Destiny. Exactly the same as the main menu music. who thought this was a good idea and why aren't they fired?
    6. Training Stage. More SF4 wubwub breakbeats. As boring as the stage itself.
    5. Necalli's theme. Generic God of War sounding bullshit.
    4. Urien's theme. Same problem as above, except it tarnishes Crazy Chili Dog as well.
    3. Ibuki's theme. Crappier remix of Twilight and still not Sharp Eyes.
    2. Forgotten Waterfall. Like its name suggests, forgettable. Zzzzzzzzz.
    1. Juri's theme. Total and utter garbage, made in 5 minutes in FL Studio.

    Not really. NG/2I had way better music than Third Strike. I'm also talking about Alpha 2 and 3, most of the EX games, and above all else, SF2, which it goes without saying had some of the most iconic music in video game history.

    SFV soundtrack continues to impress me beyond the first impressions.

    Still waiting for the soundtrack on Steam to update with the latest tunes, especially the trailer for "A shadow falls" and Ibuki :tup:

    I can kind of agree with this one. It's a good remix, but we've had like 20 years' worth of remixes of it, and it stays too close to the original and doesn't really "spread its wings on its own"..

    I'm with you on SF2 and Alpha 2, but Alpha 3's music is garbage.

    Not really familiar with any of the EX games' music.

    Every SF has some garbage tracks,noone can denie this, Alpha 3 has good ones too.

    Music is art after all, you might not like it, but the rich dude over there will pay 1 million € for it.

    1st round theme for Halloween stage kind of sounds like the crumbling laboratory stage from SF4. Not a fan of the vocals.


    2nd round theme however, is a lot better imo.

    It DOES sound a bit like Crumbling Lab.

    The first two lines of vocals sound fine. It's the last two high pitched ones that are lame.

    I still think the first song is a lot better.

    Something about the beginning makes me think they threw in a little of the russia railyard stage from sf4 in there as well, slightly altered how ever.

    Majority of NG / 2I was ost was just like from US reality shows. Bland, boring stock music that would be better to used as elevator music / 70-80's one hit wonder. Only Sean's, Alex's and Ryu's + character select musics were something I'd say were decent.

    Meh, it's ok. Better than cammy/bison's remix imo. Still not as good/hype as his A2 version. While I like most of SF5's ost, this is one of the reason why I also hate it. Too many different guys making the ost so it's like a few different style/genres throw into it.

    Heh, I hear sounds of USF4's menu theme in it during the break.

    It's not as good as his SF4 theme, but I'm glad that they kept the part that SF4 added to his theme. I'm glad it's just part of his theme now, because his original theme just...wasn't a full theme. It was like a long intro that never turned into a real song.

    SF4 made it into a real song. And I'm glad they kept that part of it.
