MIRAGE! Thats one of, if not the video game track I've listened the most to, of all time. I searched far an wide on the internet of yore for it, and somehow it was one of 11 tracks that found its way to my custom made nerdy CD. To this day it still give me chills, and once I hear those flutes kick in near the end my arms start flailing in (attempted) sync to the music like a mad conductor. It can be a real problem when I'm biking.

Klonoa 2 might pale in comparison to its predecessor for me, but its music is still on point and this track right here is as good as it gets

Yeah, I love the Klonoa 2 soundtrack. Years ago I recommended 3 tracks for Sound of Play and now they've all been played. :)

Mirage was the easiest pick.

I'm a big advocate for Okamiden and I'd say it holds up fairly well. It's as good as anyone could expect for an Okami game on DS. It carries over the feel of the original pretty faithfully considering the hardware. It almost feels like de-make of the first game. But despite liking it a lot, I've never actually heard the soundtrack outside of the game itself before. I had no idea such a clean, high quality version of that music existed. Sounds great, and a nice surprise.

The Hat in Time soundtrack is full of countless bangers too. Great game with amazing music.
