Things I Liked: Nothing, really
Things I Disliked: No real payoff to the buildup

I tend to like epic-ish medieval fantasy RPG music, I sometimes listen to it on my own time just for no reason. And yet this doesn’t click with me. I think it’s because there’s never really a payoff to the buildup, it just feels like the song is always building toward something that doesn’t happen, or is so underwhelming that you don’t realize it’s happening.

My tastes are a bit weird.

If someone could somehow combine epic orchestras with boy band music, they'd probably get a 90+.

Things I Liked: Tha wind is brushin’ meeeee time is running freeee
Things I Disliked: Nothing, really

Halfway through the list now. I’ve never played Dragon’s Dogma, it’s one of those series that’s completely passed me by. It’s a medieval fantasy game, right? So you can imagine my surprise at this . Maybe it’s because I literally just played Persona 4 a few minutes ago, but it feels like music from a low grade Persona knockoff to me. That’s not meant as an insult, it just feels totally inappropriate to a medieval fantasy, to the point where I’m wondering if I totally misunderstood what the series is.

Oh, you wanted a critique of the actual song itself? It’s okay. I like the long string at 2:35. This is just one more in a long series of okay songs.

Standard “Japanese woman singing wistfully about wishes or fate or friendship or something” song. I bet you can lay this over the end credits for 95% of anime and it would fit.

Things I Liked: The opening, the buildup at about 1:03
Things I Disliked: The background noise that starts at 0:56

I’ve never played Phoenix Wright. I’m not sure if “legal music” is a genre, but I don’t think this is it. This is just okay to me. I can imagine this playing while you’re arguing in front of the judge or something, but it doesn’t really fill me with the spirit of “yeah gotta prove my client’s innocence” or anything. Like a lot of the mid-tier songs, it just kind of feels like background music.

Things I Liked: Nothing
Things I Disliked: Nothing

As I’ve said before, I have no strong feelings for guitar riffs unless they’re synthy, and this is almost nothing but non-synthy guitar riffs. I do like the rhythm of the song getting low-pitched and then high-pitched again, I don’t know enough about music to describe that better.
