The music of most “Sonic” games nowadays seems to consist mainly of rock and rap, something I am not particularly fond of, which is why it was a welcome break to play “Sonic Unleashed”, which has a largely different style of music, more like the traditional music of most games, which I prefer. Due to this change in music style, “Sonic Unleashed” has my favorite “Sonic” music, and I have listed the top 10 here.
10. “Chun-Nan: Dragon Road-Night” is a fast song that I think has an interesting sound to it, with a kind of flute-sounding instrument during a lot of it. My favorite part is at 1:55.
9. “Spagonia: Rooftop Run-Night” plays in the narrow alleys of some Rome-like town at night, and I think the song gives the place a mysterious, lonely feel.
8. “Holoska: Cool Edge-Night” is a lovely song that fits well with this lovely location, a place of ice and snow with the ocean far below and the Aurora Borealis above. My favorite part is around 1:13.
7. “Adabat: Jungle Joyride-Night” plays in an island stage at night, and I find this song to be quite lovely, but it also makes me a bit sad. I like the instrument used in much of it, which I think is a cello or something similar. (This song makes me think of “Vexx” a little, especially the music that plays in the Below….)
6. “Shamar: Arid Sands-Day” is a rather fast and fun song that plays in the desert stages during the daytime.
5. “Chun-Nan: Hub-Night” plays in the town in Chun-Nan at night, and it is a slower song that I find to be lovely and soothing. I especially like the part at 0:23.
4. “Shamar: Hub-Day” plays in the desert town in Shamar during the day, and I find it to be a lot of fun to listen to.
3. “Chun-Nan: Dragon Road-Day” is just a good song, but I’m not good at describing it. I just like it. And I like that drum you hear here and there.
2. “Shamar: Arid Sands-Night” is awesome, and I’m not usually into jazzy music. But, this particular song is just great. Take a listen.
1. “Eggman Land-Day” is, obviously, my favorite song, and I think it fits really well with Dr. Eggman’s weird amusement park, factory-ish place. I think the song sounds rather sinister, and I especially like the beginning. Why not listen, my dearies!
