    Anyone have a master file with all the music from Season 1, including the recently added stages and characters? I have 320kbps MP3s from most of the stuff from the beginning of the year, but am missing most all DLC related music.

    Wow, Akuma's stage theme is actually pretty fucking good. Kinda haunting and intense. This would be perfect for a final boss (Arcade mode where are you)

    Also holy shit the Christmas stage round 2 is GODLIKE

    I actually like all these. SFV's stock just went up. The Xmas theme sounds like an 80s soap opera opening song (which means it's PERFECT!!!!)

    Is it just me or are some of the character reveal trailer music absolutely should be the character theme music? Some of the characters already have good theme music.. but some of these seem like such a waste for just the trailer. Nash and Akuma especially for me

    Nash

    Akuma

    Juri

    Ibuki

    ^Are you kidding? As much as that reveal trailer for Nash is a good piece of music, his own theme is on another level, always has been.

    They can't use those themes. Those songs are from generic music libraries that big companies and movie studios use for trailers. They appear in all sorts of trailers not just Street Fighter.

    And I wouldn't want them to use them anyways. It's just be another game that got ruined with cinematic Hollywood trash music that's not meant to be listened to outside of action scenes. It'd completely remove the musical identity of street fighter.

    I made a music mod implementing a few of those trailer songs. Nash, Karin and maybe one or two more. Might add in Akuma.

    It had tracks from KOF, GG, Tekken, SF Ex, Fighting Layer, Kensei Sacred Fist and VF. When I finally unlock the last two stages that I need, i'll get working on the last few dlc stages/characters.

    Well, setting the music playlist in the main menu to:

    Street Fighter V
    Street Fighter V Main Menu
    Ring of Destiny
    Frosty Boulevard

    makes for a greatly enjoyable audio experience.

    I love this one. I wish it was Ibuki's original theme by Capcom back from SFIII-days :)

    Hope to stumble upon the cinematic trailer music too :tup:

    Yet another theme ruined by Fukusawa. Why is this talentless hack still working for Capcom?

    Is he the same dickhead that ruined Iron Man and Captain America's epic themes in MvC3? The fart horns and shitty dubstep are very similar.

    Those are all great. Except I'm still mad they gave Haggar a mashup of Guy and Cody's themes instead of giving him his true theme.

    I think most of the music in this game is okay. Some are great, some are not. But I would definitely love to see the old EX tunes back. I miss that badass Rising Dragon theme. It would be great if you could add your own music to the game as in Tekken Tag 2.

    Is this possible for the PS4 version of SFV?

    God-awful elevator music on practically every stage. At least IV had a couple of memorable tunes, this game has none. Listen to the Ryu, Ken and Guile themes from SFII and tell me V has even decent music. The soundtrack is as bad as the mechanics of the game. Utter trash.

    Sounds depressing for a fighting game theme song, or maybe sleep inducing. It might be a decent composure outside of the gameplay to some regard, but to hear this as fighting game music for Street Fighter is off-settling for a battle theme imo. The same situation applies with Juri's theme.

    From listening to a lot of the themes SFV has to offer, it doesn't even feel like SFV has a clear set-in-stone decision of what genre of music it should primarily focus on. At one instance, it was rock, then it became orchestra, then they tried mellow upbeat electronic, followed by dubstep-like music... etc. Although, basic synthesizers doesn't seem to be commonly used in SFV... and this was commonly used for almost every SF game with some exceptions like 3S, but even that game used synths sparingly in most bgms (usually fitting the DNB environment).
    With all the hope combined... there can be a chance in SFV that Ken can, one day, walk again. #TeamWheelchair

    Really depressing theme, It feels like we thought everything is okay but something is off, as if something really bad is about to happen.

    It's perfection.

    I like the eerie/mysterious feeling Kolin's theme creates

    It reminds me of this:


    I do feel like Kolin's theme needs to be sped up just a little (open up her theme on YouTube and set the playback speed to 1.25, works much better IMO), but otherwise the "narrative" so to speak is there, pretty fitting for a member of probably one of the most interesting organizations in fighting games

    2- Christmas Theme
    3- Dolls Theme from Story Mode
    4- Main Theme (Ring of Destiny CPT stage and CGI trailer)
    5- Guile/Nash/Ryu (Tie)

    Honorable mention: Juri, Ken, Necalli, Decapre, Temple of Ascension, Rashid

    For now, and after a year, I am giving SF5's music an 8.5/10. I'll see how I feel about it down the line, but I hated it a lot more before, but now I "get it" and it has a very distinct flavor that is its own. My problem is most of the tracks, while good, do not grab you or drag you into them. They aren't as melodic as I would've hoped.

    1. SFV Menu Theme #1 (it's kinda "nostalgic" to me because it was such an exciting feel when you actually managed to log into the Beta and were presented with the game's main menu and the music kicking in... it was beautiful)

    3. Brazil Stage Round 2

    Worst piece of shit ever. I come from a Muslim-dominant country and I didn't need to hear the Islamic call for prayer in a game. It's not that I'm offended or anything (since I'm not a Muslim), but that is the last thing I expected to hear in a game. Total bullshit. Get rekt, Crapcom.
