The Garamsythe Waterway
Hi Zak. The music always plays, but sometimes we're looking at the Blue Laguna download page and sometimes we're on the lambda server's page.
So, for example,
That must have been the first time I've ever done that, the "Secret of Nethicite" link was supposed to go directly to the lambda link. Editing now... I always right click on the lambda link and copy location, dont know how it ended up like that..
Thanks Neg for the banner!!
The Garamsythe Waterway 6-1 The Secret of Nethicite
Although the themes are similar in style, the Waterway's ends up trumping the mines' theme. It must be a lot more captivating...
By the way, I did notice it did the same thing to my Bhujerba link... weird. I know I'm always going for the direct download link off the Lambda server (Cobalt doesn't seem to play in the browser) but definitely never the stream page with the links... odd, maybe a glitch in the site or the forum. I'll double check they work and if not edit.
Round 1 - Battle 7
The Stillshrine of Miriam - [Hidden link. Register to see links.]
As the title says, the Stillshrine's theme, nowhere else. This one's definitely interesting and different than most other themes, with the flutes, and bouncy beat. I think (I might be wrong) this track was actually the very first one revealed during the FFXII OST preview at E3 or something... and also, this was the theme they decided to use for the main menu of the Bonus Disc DVD that comes with the collectors edition. Yeah, I guess it does give a "main menu" feel.
The Dalmasca Westersand - [Hidden link. Register to see links.]
The dark and gloomy thing of the Westersands. Very fitting for the side of the desert in which the sandstorms occur. Reminds me of chaining Dustia for early leveling up...
I have to go with The Stillshrine of Miriam.

The Stillshrine of Miriam. The other piece has potential that it just never ends up getting around to.

The Stillshrine of Miriam
On a forgotten page of eternity
There lies a land embraced by mighty gods.
Her name... Eorzea.
The Stilshrine Of Miriam. Westersand is too lifeless.
Yeah, thought so.
The Stillshrine of Miriam 7-0 The Dalmasca Westersand
I can't decide whether the Miriam theme is considered awesome or the Westersand is too lame, but this was a pretty harsh blowout, and a fast one at that!
Round 1 - Battle 8
The Sandsea - [Hidden link. Register to see links.]
No, not the pub in Rabanastre. This sad-sounding theme is for the vast Yensan Sandseas... or rather, the giant structures over them. The Sandsea is vast and holds a lot of secrets, and this theme is very fitting for the miserable Yensa-folk. It's also used in the game a couple other scenes before you even set foot in the Sandsea, including when you first meet Ba'Gamnan in the Prison. Perhaps that's a hint as to where his story will end up...
To the Place of the Gods - [Hidden link. Register to see links.]
Another theme for a huge place you may spend a LONG time in: The ever-so-confusing maze of oblivion that is the Great Crystal. 'Course, unlike the Sandsea it's optional to do the things that would entail you spending a long time there. If you have, you should be familiar with this mysterious enchanting theme. Looking at it from an outsider's point of view I would say the music also gives a near-end-of-game feel... no?
Anyway, I gotta go with To the Place of the Gods. It's hella fun to play on the piano and I actually really liked the Crystal even though it took a long time, I admire the effort the designers put into planning that thing. They picked a good choice of music here. I was also disappointed when Ceid didn't include it.
By the way, I'm pretty sure I found the root of the problem making my links inconsistent. All links should go to direct download/stream now.

These are going fast... I like it.
To the Place of the Gods 6-0 The Sandsea
A blowout on the Great Crystal's theme, absolutely no love for the Sandsea. Granted, not much can beat the Crystal theme...
Round 1 - Battle 9
The Dalmasca Estersand - [Hidden link. Register to see links.]
So the Westersand theme just lost... how's about the other half, the Estersands? One of the very first places you get to be. As for the music, for something that's the Westersand's other half, the music sure is as different as it could get. More fast and orchestrated. Seeing as it's one of the first places you go, they really wanted to impress us with the OST early in the game... as if they didn't already.
Clan Headquarters - [Hidden link. Register to see links.]
As the title says, the theme for the headquarters of Clan Centurio. Kinda a remixed and sped up version of Rabanastre, for part of it at least. You might think it's a small space for a location, but you DO spend a lot of time there enough for it to fit in... but even if you don't, you may remember this is actually also the theme for the Royal Palace which is more of a whole location anyway. Shame you only get to visit it once... "hey bucket-head!".
I don't know if they name the pieces first or decide how to implement them the game, but I would have named this one after the palace rather than the Clan HQ.
Anyhow, I vote Clan Headquarters.
The Dalmasca Estersand.Its such a contrast to the Westersand music.
