4) Baten Kaitos: Flowing Through the Rays of the Morning Sun

This round was rather simple to choose except 4), Baten Kaitos just about wins. Cloudtop Cruise is my favourite sky theme of all time except Sky Sanctuary which it's on par with, a shame that it's overplayed online though :P

It's all right, guys, I'm here! I've just been so busy lately because I'm moving tomorrow, so I've only been able to be on here in short spans of time.

With that in mind, this flight will conclude in less than 24 hours (if you really want me to be specific, it'll probably be 21-22 hours, but don't bet your bottom dollar on that).

That's all! Vote if you haven't done so yet, and I'll see you tomorrow to vote for close match ups,

Now playing:

THE SKY! A new frontier! Never conquered by man! ... Except in every video game ever created... but anyways, what am I looking for this tournament? Normally I have a specific answer, but "the sky" is such a broad term that I don't think I can come up with just one answer. This will be a very contextual tournament with very arguable reasons and a lot of the time a choice may be left up to person preference. Obviously, anything with strings and woodwinds is going to have the advantage, but even that's not enough to give some of these songs the edge. Let's look at this round, shall we?

1) Mario Kart 8 - Cloudtop Cruise — This is such a tough choice, when you really think about it. Putting personal preference aside, there's a lot of great sky elements in both of these songs and they both use the full orchestra and band very well. Both are great compositions. So remember when I mentioned arguable reasons? "The Sky" reminds me of Harry Potter at points... and that's literally the only objective reason I can come up with to vote the other way... As for personal preference... dat electric guitar was all the reason I was ever gonna need.

2) Mega Man 8 - Tengu Man (Saturn version) — Eeww... What is this round? Both interesting songs, but if the hardware limitations and weak instrumentation didn't hurt them both, the unfitting composition would've done them in. This one wins for sounding even remotely like it intended to represent the sky.

3) Sonic Lost World - Sky Road (Bonus Stage) — Anyone else getting Mario vibes from this one? Oh, well. "Ship Soaring Through the Heavens" seems more a celebration of Bravely Default's own music than a theme for the skies. For that reason, I'm giving it to the one that actually sounds somewhat sky-like.

4) Baten Kaitos - Flowing Through the Rays of the Morning Sun — What is WITH these unnecessarily long song names? Please tell me this is less wordy in Japanese. Well, anyways, I just feel this one fits the theme better. The instrumentation is a big help, but I suppose it's just the fact that Highwind seems to be nothing more than a grand theme while this feels like a grand SKY theme.

THE SCOREBOARD AS IT WERE!
1) 6-3 (In favor of Mario Kart 8)
2) 8-1 (In favor of Mega Man 8)
3) 5-4 (In favor of Sonic Lost World)
4) 6-3 (In favor of Baten Kaitos)

(Updated down to two votes below me.)

1. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword - The Sky
To me, this theme personifies a sense of freedom and adventure, which perfectly fits the sky theme. Cloudtop Cruise is an excellent orchestral arrangement, but I find no reason it's better than The Sky other than it's the newest thing right now.

2. Mega Man 8 - Tengu Man (Saturn)
The limited hardware really holds back the DK song for me.

3. Sonic Lost World - Sky Road (Bonus Stage)
Once again, it's the instrumentation that does it for me. This song has a very light and happy tone that makes it easy to imagine it being played while dancing in the clouds.

4. Final Fantasy VII - Highwind Takes to the Skies
This was a tough matchup for me because neither track really stands out. I feel like this one is slightly less generic though, and it does give you an uplifting feeling of marching on to victory.

1) Yoshi's Island - Donut Lifts
2) Sonic 3 & Knuckles - Sky Sanctuary Zone
3) Sonic Unleashed - Tornado Defense 1st battle
4) Metroid Prime 2 - Sanctuary Fortress

Very easy choices, really like all the themes I voted for with Sky Sanctuary being my favourite of the bunch. To be honest though, before this I actually forgot the Tornado Defense levels existed in Unleashed (not particulary keen on the Werehog stages so I haven't replayed the game in a while) but nevertheless the music is great!
