I just got my copy of P3, and the first thing I did was put on the soundtrack and listen to the whole thing.
 I have to say, I thought it was O.K. It sounded different compared to other Megami-Tensei games. I'm not really into the hip-hop, and I thought some of the English sounded kind of funny. But my favorite songs are definately Aria of the Soul and Kimi No Kioku.
So, I was wondering if anyone else has listened to it, what songs they liked, disliked, or anything else they have to say about it.
So.....Discuss!:axeman:

"Mass Destruction", "Want to be Close" and "Kimi no Kiouku" are one of the best, another good one but just to repetitive is "Tartaros".

I like the music a lot, it matches with the game's setting.

Yeah, I like the direction Meguro took with it. The hip-hop feel really helps set the setting for how young the characters are.

"Mass Destruction", "Battle Hymn of the Soul", and "Burn my Dread" are three crazy good tracks.

I heard a few tracks that were very upbeat and hip hop. Normally I'd detest that in an rpg but Persona 3 is about being young,alive, and living it up in high-school so the sound-tracks go perfectly with the setting from my first impression.

Well, the rap is tolerable. I despise rap, but whoever composed the soundtrack managed to make it good...for as far as poetry on steroids can be.

However, I must say Burn My Dread should be awarded 'Best Battle Music You Can Dance To'. This is the first time I snap my fingers to a video game song.

I don't usually like hiphop-ish stuff, but I thought it worked really well here.  Definitely a nice change from a lot of other RPG soundtracks.

I still wish there was more piano songs on the soundtrack. The few we get are absolutely stunning.

The "Velvet room" track was beautiful this time around. A lot clearer and yet it kept to  the tradition of the other games. I enjoyed every score  which is strange because most of the genres of music in the game normally aren't my thing.

What's the name of the tracks played during the Yakushima Vacation and Operation Babe Hunt? I managed to find a site for downloading the mp3s, but I'm unfamiliar with the track names.

I think the track at the beach was "breath hard" but don't quote me word  for word. The "changing of seasons" track was one of my favorites. It becomes  the  main music for school after you reach a certain point. Hopefully that is not too big of a spoiler.

I liked the battle theme of the full moon bosses. By the way, what's the track name for the dorm BGM?

Sorry to revive this tired old post but I just HAVE to provide some sort of counterpoint to all the apparent love the soundtrack is getting.

First of all, IT SUCKS.  I see a lot of people above seem to think it fits the mood/story of the game somehow, though I don't believe anything could be further from the truth.  I found myself constantly feeling how the soundtrack did not mesh with the game at all.  Move that body movethatbody make sure you don't hurt nobody?????  What the shit is that?  I thought I was playing a game about fighting evil shadows and summoning eldritch creatures with Tarot cards...  And then there's all those annoying horn-synths and that Japanese chick singing broken English BADLY.  I mean, seriously, what was Atlus THINKING?

If there was some feature about the game that required you to listen to the music (ala Mother 3) I would've declared it unplayable.  As it is, it mars the whole experience of playing the game.  However, there are a few tracks that do fit the game nicely, the Tartaros music is a good example, but the new Velvet Room music is god awful too.  I mean there are parts to when she's singing so high its almost ear piercing.

All in all, the music in P3 gives the whole game a very disposable quality, whereas the previous games could be looked on as rather classic.  I would never want to play through P3 again, whereas the MIP and P:Tsumi and P:Batsu I might think about fondly from time to time, even pop in and play for a bit.  I'd love to say that about P3, but I can't, if only because of the music, so I won't.
