It’s up there, but as many have explained, there are better and more consistent franchises like Final Fantasy, Mega Man, Castlevania, and Zelda.
I have to listen to this after work for the lulz, would be hilarious if Combichrist ripped off Sonic.
The quality of the music is the ONLY consistently good thing about Sonic games. I think it beats out the series you mentioned. Of those 4, Final Fantasy is really the only series that has close to the same variety as Sonic.
Anyone who says that is just trolling. Honestly, even if we just look at the Adventure games which is where the "buttrock" generalization originated, you have hip-hop, jazz, electronic, etc.
What's the point? Music tastes are subjective.
I don't get Planet Wisp's appeal either. The scenery is nice, but the music is weird and bland if that makes sense.
The piano and strings give it this serene, nature vibe but underneath it there's this driving slap bass, guitar and percussion beat that adds a mechanical feeling which just perfectly encapsulates the setting.
It's a bit too SNES for me. I think part of what makes the Sonic OSTs so good is that there's so many different kinds of music it tackles, that there's bound to be something you like in there. I think Sonic music is a lot more listenable on average. I couldn't listen to this stuff while doing work or driving or relaxing but there's lots of Sonic music that you can just play and it sounds just as good as the backdrop to a video game as it does as a stand alone song.
Yeah I think to me it just sounds like a scenic piece with funk elements in it. It's way too basic to be interesting to me. I love Sweet Sweet Mountain which has this sampled motif it keeps reiterating and an extravaganza vibe, and I especially love Asteroid Coaster which is "epic space rock"
