@Grumblevolcano The Tornado Defense stages weren't in the Wii/PS2 version, if that's the one you played. (No loss, I'll admit.)

Weird there's 4 votes this time instead of the high 6's or 7's..... whatever. I'll give this 24 more hours.

@BearHunger I played the Xbox 360 version of Unleashed so it is just that I hadn't played in a while.

1. Super Mario Galaxy - Gusty Garden
Yeah, it's Super Mario Galaxy, but honestly, Shovel Knight's soundtrack didn't impress me that much. It's not bad, and maybe it will grow on me, but Gusty Garden takes this round.

2. Donkey Kong Country 2 - Stickerbrush Symphony
The emotion packed into this song blows my mind. Maybe i'm biased since this is one of my favorite songs ever.

3. Dragon Quest VIII - Heavenly Flight
I like the intensity and tension of the Kirby track, and it's definitely more catchy, but it doesn't fit the category half as well. This song sounds so ethereal and majestic.

4. Mutant Mudds - 4-1
Very close matchup for me. In the end I picked Mutant Mudds because I just prefer that song.

Gusty Garden Galaxy (The orchestration...nuff said)
Stiff competition in this one. Imma go with.....Sky tower (Bramble blast I love ya buddy but Sky tower's instruments and feel fits a bit better for this kind of tournament)
Dragon quest Heavenly Flight (Not a fan of the Haliberd personally)
Giddy Sky Act 1 ......just cause okay?)

giving this 14 more hours till the next set.

Bramble Blast thornies up Sky tower 4-2
Heavenly Flight won over the haliberd (wait for it) Heavenly 4-2
Mutant mudds muddies up princess peach's chance of winning 4-2.

KarrotMan

1) Mario Kart 8 - Cloudtop Cruise
This song is a semi remix of Gusty Gardens, my favorite VG piece, and therefore automatically gets my vote.

2) Baten Kaitos - Flowing Through the Rays of the Morning Sun
Tough pick as both songs do their job well but I'll give the edge to Baten Kaitos since it gives a sense of scale.

3) Super Mario World 2:Yoshi's Island - Donut Lifts
Koji Kondo knows how to make a really uplifting piece. Bubble Clouds was cute but a little ho hum for my tastes.

4) The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap - Cloud Tops
I'm all for some ambient music with some tribal chanting but Sanctuary Fortress does not fit the sky theme. Cloud Tops on the other hand fits, bearing with the compressed instruments.

Cloudtop cruise (Heh, no comparison.)
Sky road bonus stage (I would've given this round to Baten kaitos but something about sky road makes me wanna do a happy little waltz)
Bubble clouds
Cloud tops. (The compression issues seems to be less and less somehow.)
