Top 10 isn't enough to be honest.

I could think of at least 20 that are all on the same level and could be # 1-3....so where do I put them ?

There is easily 100 GREAT OST's out there over the years.

Ever hear of 1602 AD ? PC game from 1997 with an amazing soundtrack, one of the most beautiful in all the world and was half the reason the game was so enjoyable.

But I can bet most people wouldn't put it in there top 10 because they never played the game, yet it's probably honestly the 40th best OST ever made.

So these lists don't do much for me because I could easily put 30 other OST's in the top 10 as well and they would all be even.

That's the thing that's fun about making one of these lists-- seeing what other people would have included. KH and its music is great too!

Chrono Cross. Leaving it off a list like this, is a crime.

This WHOLE list is a crime except SoTC

List should be renamed to

"My love for Japanese music from the last 4 years"

In the opening paragraph I wrote how because I chose Chrono Trigger, I had to leave out Chrono Cross. It was one or the other. No sequels, direct or indirect. =(

Then I fail at reading. ;)

I actually think Cross has a slightly better soundtrack than trigger, though.

Haha, no worries. I love the Chrono Cross OST too. It was pretty gut-wrenching forcing myself to choose between the two. =0

Personally I'm a major fan of both Donkey Kong Country 2 and Metroid Prime

Wow, Skyrim is not even on the list. Many disagrees will likely follow, but I thought its epic soundtrack was fantastic and had an enormous impact on the overall experience.
