Persona V.3

Persona V.3
[Audio CD, 2 Discs]
Source: Persona 3 [PS2]
Composer: Shōji Meguro
Release Date: 2006
Label: Sony

Shin Megami Tensai: Persona 3 was released in 2006 (2007 for North America) by Atlus. This two disc collection features 58 compositions and arrangements by Shoji Meguro, a longstanding composer for the varied Shin Megami Tensai series. The soundtrack itself is quite varied and reflects the modern tone of Persona 3 and its gameplay. The soundtrack jumps between classical sounding arrangements, urban inspired battle themes, overdriven guitars, and still manages to keep some classic RPG charm intact. The diversity of the soundtrack compliments the dual nature of Persona 3's gameplay, which has you planning your daily schedule around attending high school, improving your social links and fighting through the hellish tower Tartarus at night. While most of the Shin Megami Tensai series (and most games in general) has a relatively narrow thematic range to draw emphasis to the gameplay, this soundtrack incorporates a variety of elements that work quite well together to create an extremely listenable album. The number of remix and band arrangement compilations based on this soundtrack attests to this.

  15. The OST wasn't as good as I was hoping. A lot of the tunes make you sit back and think, "Well, it sounds better in the game...." That BABY BABY BABY song grates my nerves.

    Although "Burn My Dread" is pretty awesome.
