I've been paying attention to Diamond/Pearl's music lately and I've found some gems and some stinkers. What are your thoughts? I think the battle music has gotten tired. It didn't have the dramatic edge the remixed Fire Red/Leaf Green music had. The Gym Leader music was also just BORING, but then again, I don't think there will ever be a Pokebattle theme as awesome as the Kanto Gym Leader G/S music. In Gold and Silver, the battle music for the Kanto Gym Leaders was epic. I'm probably just biased 'cause G/S had amazing music. There are some beauties in this game, however. First off, the Hotel/Resort Area music. This music is classy with the piano, and it sounds like there are two different time signatures going on there, which is cool. Also - this is the best part and I should put it in Pokenotices - there's one section of that theme that sounds like the Foxwoods commercial, when they sing "for the wonder...of it all". The music for the theme above the Resort Area, with the sandstorm? Awesome. I love the trumpets and the snazzy opening beat. It's a toe-tapper, for sure. It doesn't seem like the kind of music that would FIT for an area with tall grass and a desert, but...it works. I like it. The Champion music is pretty cool, but nothing will ever be as epic as the Red/Blue Champion battle music. When I was like eight I would get into the fight and hold the Gameboy up to my ear and listen to it. This Champion music is pretty epic, but in a cheesy sorta "superhero vs. supervillain" comic book battle way. The Pokemon League background music isn't really COOL, per se, but it's chilling with the bass drums and sets the stage well. Again, I liked the Red/Blue and Gold/Silver music better. And finally, the Casino music. This could very well be some of the greatest music in any Pokemon game. I would place this music third on the list of the best, after the Red/Blue Champion music and the Gold/Silver Kanto Gym Leader music. It's crazy with all the synths and it doesn't sound eighties. I could actually imagine this in one of the Pinball games that you can play in the Casino stage of the first Sonic Adventure. And to top it all off, it samples the original Red/Blue casino music. The only thing I don't like is how it gets interrupted by the Clefairy bonus round music. That music is so annoying...I try to get out of Bonus Rounds just to listen to the awesome Casino music again. Anyway, those are my thoughts. Yours? (This is in the right forum, right? If it's not, please move it.) EDIT: Oh, and the Bicycle music SUCKS.
