If I was gonna nominate two from SotC, The Opened Way would have been my other pick.

Smithy is pretty rad, but, uh. For long stretches it just sounds like fat people farting at each other. It's definitely worthy of being in this contest, for sure, even despite that, but against TOW? Yeah.

Smithy is a competent boss theme with some pretty sick bass, but there is absolutely no reason it should have got this far. There is no comparison, this vote here.

If I close my ears enough The Opened Way sounds pretty much the same as The Final Decisive Battle.

Man, the Persona music is anemic compared to the Blue Dragon music.

Of course, I have no context. I've never played either game, but I found the Blue Dragon boss theme was pretty rockin'.

I love irony as much as the next Bronto, but man oh fucking man I would melt like a Nazi if Battle for Everyone's Souls lost to that.

Blue Dragon entry gave me cancer. Hope the vocalist has a day job.

The Persona entry is actually very good. I like the layered setup and it is evocative of finality and a delicious mixture of dread and determination. I never played a Persona anything before this, but I am now interested in the soundtrack.

Apparently that's Ian Gillian. As in, Deep Purple's Ian Gillian. As in Smoke on the Water.

Welp, Joke Entry is behind 4-10. Moving on.

FF: Mystic Quest: Final Boss

vs

Super Meat Boy - The Battle of Lil' Slugger

Welp, I think I actually meant to put up the MQ theme that ended up getting written in. (Boss2) But both are good themes. Anyway, Lil' Slugger is an excellent track. This is a hard choice for me.

Lil' Slugger is raw and basically comes out and screams "This shit be climactic, yo" in a volume of strength that can't be ignored.

Mystic Quest opens in the most boring, typical possible way and then becomes almost every RPG boss theme ever. It is a only couple steps away from being completely by the numbers. The synth keys over the synth horns is *okay,* but it's so goddamn bland it slides backwards into mediocrity. Another track that I can't help but wonder how it got this far.

Mystic Quest has the highest bad game to great music disparity ever. MQ wins it for me.

Mystic Quest's soundtrack is digitized speed metal.  Battle 2 demonstrates this better, but c'mon, got to give it there.

TA is correct, Battle 2 is better. I still love the final battle song.

Battle 2 isn't here, this shitty one is. Don't vote for a bad track because another track from the same game is pretty okay. The one track isn't representative of the whole game for this, it's representative of only itself!

Ah, but it's not shitty!  All I'm saying is that Battle 2 is a better example of why this track is good.  Not *amazing*, but still damn good.  And that slow, pipe-organ start leading into the speed metal is always a great thing in music.
