    Eliminating America from the top four is one of the weirdest things in this thread (along with India's theme being eliminated first).

    Arabia (Üsküdara) = 5
    Macedon (Tino Mori) = 5 + 1 = 6 (Varying tunes, with lots of underwoven melodies and harmonic shifts in the later era themes. I'm not as fond of the Ancient theme, and it's no America theme-wise, but it's still among the best).
    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) =10 - 3 = 7 (Too much shrill trilling throughout each and every theme. It's pretty enough, and progresses to a typical epic sweep, but that's about it. It lacks variation)
    Poland (Hej ide w las) = 12

    Arabia (Üsküdara) = 5
    Macedon (Tino Mori) = 3 (6 - 3) -- This theme is about as bombastic as Alexander himself.
    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) 8 (7 + 1) -- I love traditional Middle Eastern music, and of the four currently in game this is by far the best IMO.
    Poland (Hej ide w las) = 12

    Arabia (Üsküdara) = 5
    Macedon (Tino Mori) = ELIMINATED (3-3) America's out? So is this.
    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) 8
    Poland (Hej ide w las) = 13 (12+1) Best of the remainder.

    Arabia (Üsküdara) = 2
    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu)= 6 (9-3) Nothing specific against it. No much choices left.
    Poland (Hej ide w las) = 14 (13+1) It's the best. I love all the versions and I'm happy to see it having such a strong run.

    Arabia (Üsküdara) = 0 (2-2) Eliminated
    Can get very repetitive over the eras, despite the innate catchiness of the tune. I would have downvoted it before this if I actually disliked it.

    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu)= 7 (6+1)
    Love both the remaining themes, but I want Persia to win. Persia is the best implemented civ in the game, the nonsense of Cyrus's agenda nonwithstanding. His music is fantastic. Here's another hitpoint hoping that Persia doesn't get triple downvoted like I inevitably know it will.

    Poland (Hej ide w las) = 14

    India's theme probably suffered from association with that insufferable wowser Gandhi ;)

    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu)= 4 (7-3)
    Poland (Hej ide w las) = 15 (14+1) Both great but prefer this one

    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu)= 5 (4+1) Big fan of persian music
    Poland (Hej ide w las) = 12 (15-3) weaker than Persia, but a good choice for 2nd place. I really like both.

    Edit: sorry, had the pages wrong somehow.

    Persia should have 5 now, Poland 12. Siptah skipped oedali's post. Here are correct scores:

    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu)= 5
    Poland (Hej ide w las) = 12

    Sneaky stealing the last vote for me :mischief:

    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu)= 2-3=-1 (ELIMINATED) - Goodbye, Persia, second place is good for you!
    Poland (Hej ide w las) = 13+1=14 - Poland, you win the place of the best theme!

    Apparently Poland's theme is the best then, I guess Roland Rizzo made the right choice in picking an obscure Polish song, and mixing it with an original melody...

    7)- Russia (Kalinka)
    8)- Japan (Itsuki Lullaby)
    9)- Sumeria (Hurrian Hymn 6 with original composition)
    10)- China (Jasmine Flower)
    11)- Scythia (Original composition)
    12)- Egypt (El Helwa Di)

    Sumeria's theme being that highly ranked was also unusual.

    Frankly India's themes are among the top 5 in the game, IMO. Both for the atmosphere they generate and their musical earworminess.
