I have the original soundtrack to Oath in Felghana because it was in .ogg format in the game directory, but I was wondering if anyone has an opinion on whether any of the other arrangements are better than the original?

Some of the special arrangements were really cool, but I think they should have put more selections onto the SAV disc. I have been listening to the OST for a week straight now, with only changing every once in a while to listen to the Grandia III OST. I never thought it would be possible to obliterate the PC Engine Ys III score, but that goes to show you Falcom put their all into this game. I always favor the original scores over the arranged versions in most cases. However, the Ys V Orchestra Version has some legendary tracks on it though.
I want an extended version of Behold!!, truth be told. The one on disc 2 of the Ys III Perfect Collection would've worked if the instrumentation didn't suck so bad.
Then again that's probably asking too much. As far as the Super Arrange Version goes, I have no opinion on either of the demo tracks, hate the first vocal track, on the fence trying to decide where the second vocal track falls, and find Premonition (Styx) and Praying for Kindness to be more than acceptable, while finding A Searing Struggle to be less than the OST version.

Prolly gonna grab the OST soon, though I'm just wondering if I'm the only one who preferred a bunch of the PC-Engine arrangements to the OIF ones, it's tough picking, but man, Valestine Castle was much better on the PCE, Tigray Quarry also, and especially Tower of Fate. Then again, OiF kicked butt on Eldam Mountains, Sealed in Time, and everything that was just chip music before.
Sigh, it's odd, there are just certain mixes I think are just the end all be all for a particular track.

I have to say the PC Engine version of Valestine Castle is one I prefer over the Oath in Felghana version. I love both to death, but the PC Engine version still has enough power to win me over. When I first played it on my Duo after playing the SNES version, I was completely in awe. It was like playing a game with a "super arranged" soundtrack. However, the Valestine Clock Tower in Oath in Felghana has driven me mad, I truly can not get enough of it.
