    So about twice Endless Legend, around four times the new MoO. Shorter than Civ IV and V, but no slouch by any standards for an original score.

    The english theme is so good that I want to play them which I would not do, at least not as any top 15 civs.

    My objective rating is not less important than yours. If I were Ed Beach, I would just ignore the bad AI because of your high rating.

    Listening to Spain's themes, it doesn't seem to be the Spanish Romance song.

    Will they fix the video?, since it's missing America to Japan

    Kongo's theme is based on "Banaha", a Congolese folk song.

    Disappointing that the official OST released by Firaxis doesn't actually have all the songs.

    Interesting that Kongo's song is literally a children's song about bananas. A cool thing is that it really fits Mvemba in the sense that "the song became known around the world when a Belgian priest named Father Guido Haazen tried to disseminate music from the Congo abroad with a choir he formed called Les Troubadours du Roi Baudouin. They toured Europe for six months in 1958 and even sang at the World's Fair in Brussels." So there's some Christian influence there.

    Is this the anniversary soundtrack from the Delxude Ed. that they uploaded to Youtube?

    No one knows. The Deluxe Ed comes with music from the other Civ games too, so I presume not.

    You're right it's not. I heard Spanish Romance in one of the streams though. It must be a neutral theme.

    They admit they screwed up in the comments, and said they might have to upload a new file later that include all civs.

    It's "Recuerdos de la Alhambra".

    Kongo's theme is such a catchy earworm.

    Both Industrial Age and Atomic Age Norway have elements of the Peer Gynt Suite and both sound very sinister, especially the Atomic Age one.

    Atomic Age Russia has a choir that sings Kalinka similar to that by the Red Army Choir:

    Industrial Age and Atomic Age Scythia sound like an epic theme.

    Really? Kongo's theme makes me want to kill someone, preferably Mvemba. :p In fact, I may have to go to war with Kongo just so I don't have to hear their music. :p

    Is it me or is it that the Roman theme music sounds Asiatic? But again, this may be a coincidence that Roman music is primarily pentatonic like East Asian music.
