    Arabia: Has a good buildup. Sounds like something they would have played in one of the Bourne movies, but pretty awesome.

    Egypt: After listening to this and the Celts war themes, I just felt like the Celts was more intimidating than Egypt's theme. The Celts war theme maintained that intimidating feeling most of the song, Egypt's theme didn't really do the same.

    Greece - 17 - this theme has remained unmentioned for way too long. Like most of the Vanilla themes the build-up is too long, and unlike Arabia's theme it doesn't pay off at all.

    Gotta show my love for Japan - 20 + 1 = 21 The ominous starting strings, the suspenseful white space, and eventually the frenetic taiko drums just paint the very picture of an army you don't want to mess with.

    Brazil gets that up vote because their music is ok.
    Carthage gets that down vote because I haven't really heard their music.

    Brazil: Cause they're just that awesome. No, this theme has so many things adding to it that they will likely win the whole thing, or at least second or third place.

    Germany: The theme is good, but not as good as it could have been.

    When Boulderite voted, he only took 2 points by mistake. Regardless, I have just eliminated Germany. If only their theme was a bit more intense.

    Now the Ottomans, they have an intense theme. I approve.

    It was between the Mongols and the Russians but I just had to up vote the Mongols because their theme fits absolutely perfectly with them. Has an amazing and epic start and it only gets better as the theme goes along. Also I'm a sucker for string instruments.

    As badass as Boudicca may be, her war theme is just really boring.

    Btw I'm new.

    Polynesia: Perfect war theme. Hard-hitting, tense, ominous, really gets the blood pumping. Also I love the steel guitar (I think that's what it's called) way too much.

    Persia: There are songs that sound worse, but Persia's is the only one that fails at the most important thing -- sounding like a war theme. It's weak, melancholy, and doesn't put me in the warring spirit at all.

    Ottoman: The first two minutes were amazing.

    Songhai: The beginning gave me a lot of hope for this theme, then most of the song was toned down. Which disappointed me.

    Zulu: Too Shaka, reddishrescue? I think not. SHAAAAAAAAAAAAAKAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!

    Persia: Ignored them until now. Overall, this song is really cool. The instruments are cool and the music sounds great. However, like Rome, it sounds more like the empire Cyrus and Xerxes worked so hard to build is falling, rather than the Persians burning cities to the ground, destroying empires, stuff like that. Sorry, Persia. Once again, cool song, wrong place to put it.

    Really hard to choose an up vote this time because of Indonesia and Spain but after hearing my theme while playing as Babylon in a war against Greece Lightning, just wow. It blew me away. A really slow-paced, dark and epic theme. It gave me the strength to absolutely crush him. Well that and my Bazookas vs his Gatling guns.

    Aside from being the most frequent war theme in the game, I just never really liked this theme. I don't like singing in war themes so this was an instant turn-off. Yah yah Shaka, I see you have a lot of Impi. How about you march them somewhere else though 'cause I ain't interested.
