Top 10 Classic Soundtracks of 2008

Well I’ve decided that every year I’ll make a top 10 soundtrack list, and with the new year being 10 days away, I can knock off one a day. The cutoff for this list is the Dreamcast/N64/PSx line so when I don’t include KH2, Katamari Damacy, or Shadow of the Colossus, it’s only because I I can’t. So not long from now, I will announce our number 10. Stay tuned.

In the future, soundtrack selections will have to be more specific because the back catalog of the SNES is so amazing that it could sweep the top 10 without effort. Next year I might even get a headstart and do a top 15 because there are so many amazing soundtracks, not to mention the common collision of sequels: the second soundtrack having a larger quantity of jaw dropping tracks, but they all essentially build off the music style invented in the first.
