    Scythia (Traditional Melody) - 21
    Spain (Recuerdos de la Alhambra) - 10 (9+1) The most interesting of the low ranked scores. Quite relaxing and mellow which is a nice contrast.

    I'm back again and it looks like some more strong contenders have fallen, the competition is getting stiff!

    I personally would've kept the Ottomans and Sweden around longer, I like the guitar used at the end of Sweden's atomic theme and the Ottomans theme had a nice aggressive and grand feel to it. I can't complain considering who they're up against though.

    About Greece, I personally dont mind if it used the same theme from Civ 5. Some people here might not have played it and as long as the theme is good I don't care much at all about using it again. It's a good theme, it just wasn't quite as good as some of these here in my opinion.

    Arabia (Üsküdara) - 13
    China (Jasmine Flower) - 18
    Georgia (Shen Khar Venakhi); Tsaiqvanes Tamar Kali) - 3
    Indonesia (Rejang Dewa; Bapang Selisir) - 24
    Japan (Itsuki Lullaby) - 27
    Mali (Mali Sadjo; Masana Seesay) - 30
    Mongolia (Pastoral Song; Urtin Duu) - 29
    Nubia (Allah Musau) - 6 (9 - 3) It was a close vote for who I'd demote but, between Nubia and Phoenicia, I like this just a little bit less. When there's 44 themes competing, being in the top 14 is quite good.
    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) - 21 (20 + 1) I'll continue to keep praising this one as being one of the best. To me, its easily within the top 3 and deserves to be higher.

    Phoenicia (Hurrian Hymn to Nikkal, no. 6) - 1
    Poland (Hej ide w las) - 17
    Scythia (Traditional Melody) - 21

    Arabia (Üsküdara) - 13
    China (Jasmine Flower) - 18
    Georgia (Shen Khar Venakhi); Tsaiqvanes Tamar Kali) - 3+1=4 - ...the first luck being that I can grand this marvelous theme another life...

    Mali (Mali Sadjo; Masana Seesay) - 30

    Nubia (Allah Musau) - 6
    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) - 21
    Phoenicia (Hurrian Hymn to Nikkal, no. 6) - 1-3=-2 (ELIMINATED) - ...the other being the fact that I can put an and to this theme's suffering. Goodbye.

    Voting several hours early today since I won’t be home until much later (work project). I will stay out of the more contentious/lower numbered themes for now to compensate.

    Arabia (Üsküdara) - 13
    China (Jasmine Flower) - 18
    Georgia (Shen Khar Venakhi); Tsaiqvanes Tamar Kali) - 4
    Indonesia (Rejang Dewa; Bapang Selisir) - 25 (24 + 1) This one has great instrumentation, melody, harmony, and thematically ties to the leader nicely in its feminine origins. It has an uplifting trajectory that isn’t too cloying or back-and-forth, unlike say Hungary or Poland’s themes. It reminds me in a good way of Myst III’s Amateria theme, which was similarly harmonious.
    Japan (Itsuki Lullaby) - 27
    Mali (Mali Sadjo; Masana Seesay) - 30
    Mongolia (Pastoral Song; Urtin Duu) - 29
    Nubia (Allah Musau) - 6
    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) - 21 Not a fan of this theme but I’ll refrain from downvoting now only because of the unique instrumentation.
    Poland (Hej ide w las) - 14 (17 - 3) Like the Maori theme, this one has a jarring section conflicting with the rest of the theme, and it meanders up-and-down in that portion like a man going up one step and then down one step repeatedly. I have refrained from downvoting this one until now since it’s not the weakest theme in the game, but since some great themes like the Ottoman theme were eliminated, I have no qualms about downvoting this now. Themes should be melodic and harmonious. This one is neither, even though it has some nice portions.

    +1 to Rome. I listen to that track when I exercise to charge my feeble sinews with THE POWER OF ROME.
    -3 to Georgia. I love folksongs, but male voice choirs singing dirge like songs don't really belong in Civ soundtracks so that you're going to hear every few minutes for the entire game span.

    Really interesting that some themes show very different result this time. Didn't expect Sumeria to be eliminated so late. Anyway...

    Arabia (Üsküdara) - 13
    China (Jasmine Flower) - 18
    Georgia (Shen Khar Venakhi); Tsaiqvanes Tamar Kali) - 0 (1-3) - ELIMINATED - Very beautiful, but as a music theme for Civ 6... too choral.
    Indonesia (Rejang Dewa; Bapang Selisir) - 25
    Japan (Itsuki Lullaby) - 27
    Mali (Mali Sadjo; Masana Seesay) - 30
    Mongolia (Pastoral Song; Urtin Duu) - 30
    Nubia (Allah Musau) - 6
    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) - 19 (18+1) Voting one more time for this majestic theme.
    Poland (Hej ide w las) - 14
    Scythia (Traditional Melody) - 22
    Spain (Recuerdos de la Alhambra) - 10
    Zulu (Uthe Ubhuti) - 23

    I'm sorry? Rome has been eliminated already. I'm not sure if I should count previous vote because of that.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Update: I updated the results considering Depravo's previous vote.

    My mistake. (Christ knows how Georgia outlived it and Hungary though).
    In that case +1 to Scythia instead.

    Honestly was about to upvote Georgia. Shame to see it go, it had great vocals.

    Arabia (Üsküdara) - 13
    China (Jasmine Flower) - 18
    Indonesia (Rejang Dewa; Bapang Selisir) - 26 (25+1) I've given this theme my praise in the past, so i'll leave it at that. A work of art.
    Japan (Itsuki Lullaby) - 27
    Mali (Mali Sadjo; Masana Seesay) - 30
    Mongolia (Pastoral Song; Urtin Duu) - 30
    Nubia (Allah Musau) - 6
    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) - 19
    Poland (Hej ide w las) - 14
    Scythia (Traditional Melody) - 19 (22-3) A good theme, I admit, I love the strings. However, at this point in the race, they seem weak compared to the other competitors.

    Japan (Itsuki Lullaby) - 27
    Mali (Mali Sadjo; Masana Seesay) - 27 (30-3) This tune has received a lot of love, but I am not sure why, it is pretty bland.
    Mongolia (Pastoral Song; Urtin Duu) - 30
    Nubia (Allah Musau) - 7 (6+1) This theme hasn't received much love, but I think it really works, a good underlying tune which nicely builds up.

    Mali (Mali Sadjo; Masana Seesay) - 24 (27-3) Pleasant, but not as interesting as the other African themes remaining.
    Mongolia (Pastoral Song; Urtin Duu) - 30
    Nubia (Allah Musau) - 8 (7+1) Grand, flavorful, and competitive. Makes you excited to play as them or against them.

    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) - 19
    Poland (Hej ide w las) - 11 (14-3) unmemorable, repetitive and compared to others here not great.
    Scythia (Traditional Melody) - 19
    Spain (Recuerdos de la Alhambra) - 11 (10+1) quite unique and specific to spain. great representative.

    Not a vote.
    It seems like two previous posts are using outdated results for some reason. Georgia and Phoenicia have already been eliminated. Many other themes have different score.

    Thanks. I deleted mine when I spotted the scores were messed up and I'd voted for someone already eliminated...

    Arabia (Üsküdara) - 13
    China (Jasmine Flower) - 18
    Indonesia (Rejang Dewa; Bapang Selisir) - 26
    Japan (Itsuki Lullaby) - 27

    Mongolia (Pastoral Song; Urtin Duu) - 30

    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) - 19
    Poland (Hej ide w las) - 11
    Scythia (Traditional Melody) - 16 (19-3) Trying to spread my downvotes a bit but I like most of what's left so things will become repetitive soon :/
    Spain (Recuerdos de la Alhambra) - 9 (8+1) I really like this theme. I guess Spain = Nubia at this point?
