What is your favorite song from the Ar series?

Postby bookkid900 » Fri Mar 04, 2011 9:10 pm

Though I haven't played the first two, I have looked and listened to some of the songs on Youtube. This got me wondering what everyone's favorite song/hymn from the Ar series is.

Mine has to be "EXEC_FLIP_ARPHAGE"! Here is a youtube video of the song: HERE


EDIT: I fixed numerous spelling fails :oops: and actually stated my favorite song.

I'm in love with a few songs from Ar Tonelico 3, but no names yet, although I do know that all of those that I liked are from Akiko Shikata.

Toss up between Chronicle Key and Dahna

Also of note are Arphage, Metafalica, Luminous def (normal or karaoke ver.)

Wow to name one song... flat up can't do it. There are just too many amazing ones.

According to the play count on my iPod, the Pippen Song Magic track is the most listened to :P

One thing I can say is my favorite battle song (excluding Hymnos ones) is Indra, although all the battle bongs from the second are great. Didn't care much for the rap parts of the battle songs in the first game, songs were still great overall though. Battle songs from the third game to me all sound like chibi/upbeat stuff that remind me of the opening theme for Lucky Star... From hearing them, they don't seem suited for a battle situation at all, however my opinion may change once I hear them in context,
Spoiler:
just like it did for the song Croix sings to Jacqli at the end of the game.
As far as Hymnos goes, I like it all save for 2 or 3 songs in each game, and the normal tracks are for the most part excellent as well.

I can say that the Ar Tonelico trilogy has by far the best game soundtrack I have ever heard, and I doubt any other games will ever be released that will have a score as beautiful, unique, and breathtaking as the Ar Tonelico series.

The only Hymmnos song or for that matter any song in the series that's not a favorite to me is just Cutypump.

I like almost all of them but a personal favorite would be METHOD IMPLANTA/. from Ar tonelico II.

I can't bring myself to pick any either, since all of the songs are amazing at some part, may it be composition & arrangement, lyrics, singing and chorus, or simply, the feelings that they intend to convey.

However, I do have some that really move me more than the others:

York of Love
EXEC_HARMONIOUS/.
EXEC_CHRONICLE=KEY/.
EXEC_PHANTASMAGORIA/.

EXEC_HYMME_LIFE=W:R:S/.

Chronicle Key. A stunning piece and beautifully executed in game as well. I'm not yet quite through AT2, but the music in that game doesn't hold a candle to the first, IMHO.

Oh yeah I forgot about the Ar tonelico III image album, it is simply made of win. Especially 1:26 - 2:38 and 3:05 - 4:11 of The Era of the Raging Lion ~Emperor of Wailing Thunder~. Akiko Shikata is amazing.

Only gone through the 1st game so far, but even with just that I couldn't pick a favorite. The Hymns are the real standouts, but that's as far as I can narrow it down. Not to discount the rest of the music, just the Hymns were meant to stand out, and they really do.

Mine used to be Chronicle Key from AT 1 but after listening to the AT 3 soundtrack I'm gonna have to change that to Exec_Cosmoflips. Such a beautiful song.

My new love is, EXEC_FLIP_ARPHAGE. I love the way it uses lead in and crescendo. Also 4 part Operatic harmony is amazing. That aside the music of AT is so incredibly beautiful. I really hope they give in and make another game because it'll be a tragedy if no new hymmnos songs are created. Also I hope Arphage is on the bonus soundtrack so I don't have to wait for the full sound track...but I'm never that lucky.
