RESULTS

1. Fire Emblem: Three Houses
- 248 points, 32 votes



Composers: Takeru Kanazaki, Hiroki Morishita, Rei Kondoh

Blue Skies and a Battle (Rain)
Shambhala (Area 17 Redux) (Rain)
Fodlan Winds (Rain)

GustyGardner said:
It's very rare a Fire Emblem game doesn't have a series of banging map themes and by rare, I mean it has never happened. Not once. Three Houses carries on the winning streak with a consistent stream of player phase battle themes up there with the series' best. Tearing Through Heaven and Fodlan Winds back the game's foreboding first half while The Long Road and Chasing Daybreak set the melancholic second half. Final map themes Apex of the World and God-Shattering Star are once again among the series' greatest, something each new entry in the past decade has effortlessly managed. And of course we have Blue Skies and a Battle + its counterpart Beneath Heaven and Earth. Listing endless track names without much explanation is often tiring but in this case, there's little else to say - these tracks do all the talking.
2. Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers - 227 points, 23 votes



Composers: Masayoshi Soken, Nobuo Uematsu, Masashi Hamauzu, Kenji Ito, Naoshi Mizuta, Masaharu Iwata, Hitoshi Sakimoto

Civilizations
Invincible
Landslide

zashga said:
FF14 is no stranger to fantastic music; there's a reason people are saying Soken should compose for FF16. Shadowbringers is perhaps his best work yet, with a wealth of moody location and story themes, plus boss battle themes for the many, many adversaries the game throws your way. I'm also partial to the jazzy tracks that accompany anything to do with the fallen Ronkan empire, and the Alexander/Omega techno stylings of a particular post-story dungeon. The overall collection is pretty easily my favorite OST of 2019, and I'm looking forward to seeing what gets added over the remaining lifetime of the expansion.
3. Death Stranding - 211 points, 28 votes



Composers: Ludvig Forssell, Joel Corelitz

BB
Path
Bridges

Wookieomg said:
While I'm a fan of the licensed tracks from Low Roar, Chvrches, etc., the original compositions move me the most. Ludvig Forssell creates a lot of evocative and mood-setting vibes with all the songs.. It's a bleak, dangerous world and those themes are woven into all the songs.
4. Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown - 200 points, 22 votes



Composers: Keiki Kobayashi, Ryo Watanabe, Mitsuhiro Kitadani, Hiroshi Okubo, Junichi Nakatsuru, Tetsukazu Nakanishi, Yusuke Kudo, Yusuke Yamauchi, Yukiko Miyagi, Nobuhide Isayama, Kohta Takahashi, Go Shiina, Kanako Kakino, KAZ Nakamura

Daredevil
Hush
Fort Grays Air Base Hangar

Xtortion said:
Equal parts epic, badass, and catchy arcade-style, nearly every track in this six disc behemoth of an OST does its job. Charge Assault sells the overwhelming scale of the sky, Long Day and Magic Spear I are examples of tracks meant to make the player feel awesome, and 444th Air Base Hangar is absolutely everything you want a "select your plane" menu theme to be. There's a sense of confidence and just plain swagger on display here and while the instrumentation of the tracks can vary, everything ultimately comes together to compliment the high-octane aerial combat the gameplay offers. An arcade-style airplane combat game shouldn't have an OST this good, but here we are and it's glorious.
5. Sayonara Wild Hearts - 187 points, 23 votes



Composer: Daniel Olsén, Jonathan Eng, Linnea Olsson, Claude Debussy

Begin Again
Mine
A Place I Don't Know

SlickVic said:
The game is every bit the visual album I was promised, and I liked the brand of pop that was presented here. I was glad to see this album was on Spotify so I could continue to listen to it outside the game.
6. Kingdom Hearts III - 170 points, 22 votes



Composers: Yoko Shimomura, Takeharu Ishimoto, Tsuyoshi Sekito

Toy Box Battle
Starlight Way
Dream Eaters

Rommaz said:
The original tracks are absolutely fantastic as one would expect but the remixes of older tracks really elevate this so much. They invoke the right amount of nostalgia while feeling grander than the older versions. The soundtrack went a long way to making sure that playing KH3 was a delight all the time.
7. Devil May Cry 5 - 168 points, 25 votes



Composers: Kota Suzuki, John R. Graham, Yoshiya Terayama, Hiromitsu Maeba, Casey Edwards, Stephen McNair, Cody Matthew Johnson, Jeff Rona

Devil Trigger
Unbearable Pressure
Garage

mrmickfran said:
BANG BANG BANG, PULL MY DEVIL TRIGGER
8. Astral Chain - 156 points, 26 votes



Composers: Satoshi Igarashi, Naofumi Harada, Hitomi Kurokawa, Masahiro "Godspeed" Aoki, Satoshi Setsune, Hiroyuki Fujino, Kei Shimojo, Miki Fujisue

Task Force Neuron
Savior
Jena Anderson

NotLiquid said:
Djent is taking over game OSTs, and thank god for that. First we had Doom's heavy chugging OST in 2016 and now Astral Chain comes three years later to wipe the floor with a bonus dose of catchy hooks and melodies to boot. This is a soundtrack that, much like the game it's from, is so unabashedly "anime" in all the right ways, right down to an opening vocal theme that becomes infectious after the fourth listen. Of course, despite some of its extremely heavy battle music it knows how to reel things in with some buttery smooth electro tracks like the serene Task Force Neuron theme, or the utterly gorgeous Ark Mall theme. This is one of those Nintendo properties that I wish they'd add to Smash if only for the good selection of music we'd get along with it.
9. Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night - 130 points, 19 votes



Composers: Michiru Yamane, Keisuke Ito, Ryusuke Fujioka, Ippo Yamada, Atsuhiro Ishizuna

Gears of Fortune
Voyage of Promise
Lost Garden

Sciz said:
Much like the game itself, Yamane isn't doing anything new here. Much like the game itself, nobody wanted her to.
10. Cadence of Hyrule - 125 points, 18 votes



Composer: Danny Baranowsky

Overworld
Gerudo Valley
Death Mountain

Jintor said:
Killer remixes of classic tracks with the hella sick beats of the Necrodancer team, not to mention the integration into the gameplay of this imaginative remix. Multi-layered efforts for every single track (battle, peaceful and pause) are just one of many tricks the game uses to ensure your experience vibes with both the adventures of a green-clad hero and of tripping the fuck out at a club.
11. Pokemon Sword & Shield - 102 points, 20 votes

Composers: Minako Adachi, Go Ichinose

Gym Leader
Sonia
Battle Tower

12. Outer Wilds - 78 points, 11 votes

Nice to see Fire Emblem as the winner. Can’t complain since it has my 3rd favorite OST of 2019. Meanwhile the real champ Ace Combat 7 clocks in at #4. Which is better than I was expecting. Awesome list overall.

Good list. But I think Katana ZERO should be much higher. And I don't really agree with Bloodstained being so high, I found that soundtrack to be pretty underwhelming.

I wasn't expecting Fire Emblem to take it, though it makes sense in retrospect. It's a very popular game with some really memorable tracks, so it makes sense that it appeared on so many lists.

I was really hoping Shadowbringers would manage to take the top spot. It's soundtrack is truly incredible. It's pretty impressive just how highly the people who did vote for it placed it though. If I'm looking at the voting thread correctly, outside of three people who put it at #2, everyone else had it as #1.

Huh, I expected Shadowbringers to take it, and I'd have been cool with that.

Meanwhile I expected Yooka to be buried in the game vote, but also the music vote? Era pls

Got quoted in the GOTY thread and got quoted here too, I'm on a roll LMAO.

Thanks all for the effort as per usual for doing this vote. Disappointed that not many people voted this time around.

Fire Emblem is a great pick for winner. So many good songs in that game.

I was a little surprised to see Fire Emblem take it. Shadowbringers and Ace Combat were getting a lot of people's first place picks, but in the end, they just lacked the raw amounts of people. Congrats to the top 20 either way.

Top two don't surprise me at all.

I really didn't get a chance to hear many new soundtracks last year, so I'll enjoy going through the list.

I didn't vote because I could only think of two games who's soundtracks blew me away (Outer Wilds & Disco Elysium). I can't believe neither of those even cracked the top 10.

Ace Combat in the top 10 proves this list being superior to the GOTY one. Thanks for putting this together Grexeno/EarthPainting!

Will say, bummed but not surprised at all that A Short Hike and Later Alligator didn’t make it in the top 20. Both have excellent music but they’re very niche indies on Steam so I understand why. Both games need more people to play each though. Nice to see Cadence of Hyrule in the top ten though.Thanks for the list Grexeno and EarthPainting!

Congratz to Three Houses! A spectacular soundtrack, a standout even within the series!

Also, that testimonial for DMCV is perfect.

Yeah, Fire Emblem's OST is amazing and its a crime it hasn't been released yet by IS. Let's hope that now the DLC is done they'll release the full soundtrack.

Sorry for the bump, but I didn't see this thread go up back then.
Nice results! Really happy that AC7 managed to be in the top 5.

I wonder what are the results past top 20.
