    Whose Theme Sounds the Best?

    Ok, so i was roaming youtube, and found a theme for all the races!! Whose do you think sounds the best? I'M NOT SAYING WHAT RACE YOU THINK IS BETTER, JUST VOTE BASED ON THE SONGS

    Sylvari: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wGrzN...eature=related

    Charr: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQYTK...eature=related

    Human: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m0H7x...eature=related

    Asura: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXgm9...eature=related

    Norn: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cdwz0iyiJAU

    NOTE: The youtube video for norn says that it's the main theme, but it's totally norn sounding if you ask me, so disregard that =D

    Its really hard to pick because they all have the same thematic material. I think its absolutely fucking BRILLIANT of the composer to do to unify all the races under one melody that is merely varied.

    However, if at the end of the day I had to pick one, I'd actually say human. It is very late 17th cen./early 18th cen. classical in the sense that it opens up with the "Guild Wars" meldoy that we're all familiar with in a "slow introduction," that leads up the primary theme slightly varied from the established melody from the slow introduction, then it continues to develop the "Guild Wars" melody in a way unique that is not heard in any other race's themes.

    The same could be said for the Sylvari, but this is due to the fact that the GW theme is burred in the Sylvari theme.

    Indeed, i picked sylvari because i just loved how mystical it sounded.

    In all the races Jeremy Soule truly showed off the character of each race. The Sylvari theme, as youi stated, sounds mystic and mysterious. The human theme is nobal, the Norn them is brave, the Asura theme is smart and quick, and the Charr theme makes you want to invade a small country.

    Also, this man loves his brass, specifically his horns. That man has so many John Williams aspects about him. The orchestration can -sometimes- be questionable, but DAMN can he write a tune.

    the norn music is the best it has that sense of adventure that makes me want the game to be out NOW

    plus its the GWEN theme song (or similar)
    The Original Ganksta

    Top 100 US daggers. yeah, you're jelly alright

    The Charr.

    They're an original race to Guild Wars (non-playable but still a big part of it), and I feel the race shows off how you can fit "technology" into a sword and magic fantasy game quite well. They also remind me of Wemics from D&D only instead of a tribal theme, we have Legions/technology.

    Norn. Feels epic. Truly heroic.

    It's the GW theme in my mind.

    Norn with Asura as a close second.

    I hope they include the music with the CE of this game. Jeremy Soule is a bad ass.

    The human one is just ... Epic?

    imo, norn with sylvari close second.

    norn music calls for epic adventures while hearing the sylvari one just sort of gives a "thirst for discovery" taste in a mystic & magic world.
    guess that's just jeremy soule for you.

    The sylvari theme, especially the beginning. Also, Divinity's Reach ost.

    I'd say asure, and sylvari as a close second. Asure has that melodic adventurous theme going on, i love it. :d

    That's asurA

    Voted Norn, because it's just the gw2 theme for me. Second charr, love those war drums.

    Not a big fan of the asuran one honestly.
    Not because I dislike the music but because I think it doesn't fit that much for the race imho.
    The advantage of the dreamer is that he never has to face the chains of reality.

    I really like the Asura theme - sounds pretty cool, and is quite similar to the main theme IMO
    Not too sure what to have a signature...

    All them are good, it is very hard to choose one. But if I had to then it'd be the sylvari. Very mystical and elfish sounding. Much like.
