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?
Shrikeswind: His name is Elliott, btw.

Nester the Lark: The Japanese voice actor for Adol (of the Ys series), Yuji Kaji, will be making an appearance at Konami's TGS presentation to "represent the fans." In the past, Konami has showcased Falcom's games at TGS. I wonder if there will be more to it...

Nester the Lark: I'm reluctant to do spoiler discussions because if people are playing the game, they wouldn't want spoilers, and if they're not playing the game, they wouldn't be interested anyway.

nocturnal YL: I'm… not sure if I'll read your spoiler discussions. I don't think I'll get the chance to play this, but at the same time, I'm not entirely sure I won't, either.

nocturnal YL: I have yet another pile of games waiting to be played. Due to various circumstances (I'm busy at work, this month's weekends are filled with family events, and Project DIVA Mega Mix just got new DLC), I'm not able to play them yet.

nocturnal YL: I'm currently at 34 Switch games played. I've been thinking about my Switch review videos and I'll make another at 36 or 40 games. Leaning towards 36.

nocturnal YL: I actually wanted to remake the older ones as well. I didn't notice that the 2nd video had volume issues in the audio until I have my current PC.

Nester the Lark: If you're thinking of playing Xenoblade Chronicles 3, then definitely *don't* read the late-game spoilers I posted.

Shrikeswind: So I assume everyone here's heard the news but for those who haven't, Queen Elizabeth died today.

Shrikeswind: I learned on the way home from work today - I stopped in at a McDonalds for lunch, was checking the news in line, and...well, there it was.

Nester the Lark: I knew it was serious when I heard the whole royal family dropped whatever they were doing to be by her side.

Nester the Lark: I'm not British, but there's never not been a Queen of England during my lifetime (and indeed, most of a lifetime before that), so even though I knew it had to happen eventually, it still feels a little weird.

Nester the Lark: I guess there is still the "Queen Consort," but I'm talking about how there's a King now.

Nester the Lark: Well, a lot to take in there. I'll post my impressions either later or tomorrow.

Nester the Lark: The English lip sync in Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has spoiled me. I was hoping Fire Emblem: Engage would have it, too, but comparing the English and Japanese trailers, it doesn't seem to be the case.

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should create a thread for Fire Emblem: Engage, or just talk about it in the general Fire Emblem thread...

Nester the Lark: Nintendo has had a good rhythm with their releases. When I'm tired of Xenoblade, they release a new Fire Emblem. When I'm tired of Fire Emblem, they release a new Xenoblade. When I'm tired of both, they release a new Zelda.

nocturnal YL: Super Mario Galaxy 2 is a relatively new game in terms of TAS, so it usually doesn't look as impressive as Super Mario 64. But sometimes we get stuff like this: Cosmic Cove Green Star 1 in 20.58s
