Wow, I come back and this place is deader than dead? Not expecting this thread to get attention very quickly, but let's just put this out there anyway.
I don't think it lives up to Brawl's legacy in terms of size, but personally - and this is very subject to personal tastes - I think the new tracks have higher quality to them. Brawl had more of an abundance of tracks that, IMO, really shouldn't have happened. (P.S.: Size isn't everything!)
Metroid only got two new tracks. Boo!
Then there's Sonic. Early on, I figured it was likely that Sonic wouldn't get any better music treatment. However, I also thought that if Sonic's not gonna get a single proper remix this time, they should at least borrow plenty from Generations. It's a good enough way to make up for it. I only kinda sorta got my wish. One track from Generations was used. It was one of my favorites - modern Rooftop Run - but I was still left with a sour aftertaste.
It's pretty worthless to only take away the negatives from a game's experience, though. There's still plenty of good music to be had!

How's it dead when so much has happened since your last sign in?
Personally, I love the new tracks. It's more like Melee's, where quality prevails over quantity. Brawl's soundtrack sounds good, but it also deviates more. The fact that the Melee music sounds like it's played with different instruments (compression much?) doesn't help. If a lay person like me can detect audible compression, it's bad -- and too bad about that, since it does no justice to the original (though unreleased until now) versions.
I'm also a bit surprised about the lack of new Sonic music, but hey, Escape from the City is now available.
Sorry, I must've forgotten I even posted this thread. I'm also not sure where I got the idea that this place was dead, either, but hey, it WAS more than a month ago.
Yeah, Brawl was a very inconsistent soundtrack. It was pretty great in places, but there were more than a few tracks that were very forgettable. One of the only advantages Brawl's music has over Smash 4's is the Mute City remix. The new Smash 4 version just didn't seem right to me. (Also rather disappointed that F-Zero got barely anything new, but their focus was on quality over quantity, like YL said.)
Also, I have a question about the music in Wii Fit Trainer's reveal trainer. Was that music even in the soundtrack? I can't find it anywhere. What's the name of it?
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
