as far as i can tell, the street fighter ex sub-series wasn't a hit in any sense. i've not played the games, myself. in any case, this is some great music. it's done by the capcom sound team, comprised of ayako sasao, shinji hosoe, yasuhisa watanabe, and takayuki aihara, all of whom i consider strong composers, sharing a common sound and melodic preference (you can hear more of their material on this guy's youtube page). it reminds me of the ps2 shinobi's ost, but also the megaman x series -- for example, compare "lost sea" to duff mcwhalen's (lol) theme.
passage of lotus
the infinite earth
post more game music, if you would like =^_^=

going to take this opportunity to plug a song i just finished for someone's competitive puzzle game. why this thread: it's slightly similar to ex's music.

another youtube page with some of the aforementioned composers' music. a few of the covers make me frown pretty hard, though.
giz, have you been listening to more of hitoshi sakimoto?
(i should just make this a general vg-music topic . . .)
here are most of my TOPPu PIXu from the ff12 ost.
the actual mp3s are available on blue laguna.
clan headquarters (seventy-five listens in itunes since january ;_;)
coexistence (liberation army version)
giza plains -- a lot of sakimoto's environmental themes are marked by a distinct rhythm. this has one of my favorites
little scoundrel (rascal?)
ozmone plains -- doesn't go through as much thematic development as other tracks, but i like the break at around 46 seconds.
the barheim passage -- the power of the sound in this is :0
the cerobi steppe -- this song makes me want to cry, it is so good
the dalmasca estersand
the garamsythe waterway
the golmore jungle
the royal city of rabanastre
the skycity of bhujerba -- really cool notation for the clarinet and flute. it'd probably be a lot of fun to play in an orchestra
the stilshrine of miriam
time for a rest
a couple that're not by sakimoto:
a land of memories (hayato matsuo) -- actually, i think this is one of the ost's best pieces. i wonder how matsuo would compare to sakimoto if he were as prolific.
the sochen cave palace (masaharu iwata)
funny note: sakimoto produced ff12's soundtrack using around 160 sound channels; however, the ps2 apparently only has a maximum of forty-eight channels. this means that someone had to severely downconvert all of the compositions, and it explains why you can hear all sorts of nuances in the ost tracks in contrast to what's audible in the game. i would've been terrified if i'd had that responsibility.

I haven't lately, the past few days I've been listening to 8-bit dragon quest music and the band anathema;
why, does he have something to do with street fighter ex?
i also haven't checked these out just yet, im planning on it soon though . I can't now because I have to keep the atmosphere going while I read uzumaki

not really, but I am now, starting with the FFXII soundtrack. i've also heard a few Odin Sphere songs.
my favorites (from ffxii) so far are:
Opening Movie (theme of Final Fantasy XII) for it's kind of dynamic progression and multitude of feelings
Infiltration is sneaky
Boss battle, because it's powerful, but not overwhelmingly so. it feels like its aiming more for atmosphere and feeling rather than outright melody - not to suggest it lacks that, though, simply that the melody is a little bit subdued. it accomplishes its task well.
The Sandsea - it's mysterious and creepy. It feels like I'm exploring ancient, underground ruins beneath a desert - sand filling through it's pores, gradually widdling away at the rock. in the imagery, I see the large, rotting corpse of a monstrous dragon or serpent of some kind.
this song probably carries with it the most imagination and subtle imagery out of all the other songs in the game; at least, for me. and for what i've heard thus far.
Esper Battle. this song strikes me as being determined and unrelenting, frightening and confident; I want to fight and I never want to stop until I succeed, despite the odds I'm up against. in this regard its probably one of the best battle themes.
The Phon Coast is a joyous march or jog, with a sense of grandeur. it apparently does not fit its area very well at all (according to diplo), but that won't stop me from appreciating the song.
tbph diplo i haven't listened to many of the songs you've linked;
although I do like The Golmore Jungle and Ozmone plains.
I also haven't listened to any of the SFEX music yet.

Here, a few highlights from McDonald's Treasure Land Adventure:
Ripped by me. Good quality but terrible fade out. Shouldn't matter much though. I had the whole OST uploaded but it's expired and I don't have the time to upload it all again. Maybe tomorrow or something if anyone is interested (aside from diplo since he has it already...).
Shame this soundtrack is so obscure and practically unheard of. It's really wonderful and magical! As a bonus and to prove how wonderful it really is, one of my favourite tracks:
|diplo||Apr 22 2010, 01:00 AM Post #11|
best part of magical sea 00:50 to 00:55
follow-up doesn't really satisfy me, though
|Nightmare||Apr 22 2010, 01:33 PM Post #12|
I can understand why you wouldn't like it, but yeah, that part is great. I like how it repeats a bit later (at 1:09). I think I love that track because of how absurdly upbeat it is, and how it conjures images of sunny locales.

||also, i actually don't have the ost. the way you had zipped it before was such that i couldn't extract the files on my mac. but, if you zip it the same way again, i can just extract it on a pc and then transfer it to my laptop.|

||I'll upload it right now, since I have nothing else to do.|
