    Carthage- Now THIS is a war theme. Gets your blood pumping. The brass is epic.

    Songhai- Although I do like this theme, I can't really tell whether it's a war or a peace theme. Please just put this guy out of his depression.

    Ethiopia: We eliminated Persia's theme for not sounding appropriately warlike. Fair enough. So why is this still rated so high? It would make a good secondary peace theme, I guess.

    Assyria: This one had to do two things: 1. evoke the grandeur of Assyria's ancient cities and 2. be terrifying. I'd say it delivers on both counts.

    You know, I like the Songhai theme, but I can see why people are downvoting it. And since we've reached the point of splitting hairs, I might as well vote for the one that's more ambience than war.

    I like Spain's theme. Their Peace theme is better, but their War theme is also pretty interesting.

    Byzantium: This theme is amazing. The strings give an awesome rhythm to the piece. A bit underrated if you ask me.

    Songhai: It has been an honour eliminating you Askia. Now who shall we take down next?

    England: I know I voted for Carthage before but I've began to grow fond of England's themes. This, coupled with Elizabeth's leader screen during wartime gives me the heebie jeebies.

    Japan: In this list, I found it to be the most underwhelming.

    Who's with me on redeeming Greece? Their theme is awesome and well-fitting.

    On the contrary, DIE France and your so-so theme!
    Sorry guys, I like Japan's theme a lot more than this one.

    I actually had another downvote in mind, but considering how hard it is to choose a theme now, I'll do it after Japan's is gone.

    Greece's is good, really classy. Better show my appreciation for it while it lasts.

    Holy crap, this theme is amazing. At first I underestimated it, but I've changed my mind since. Great march beat/rhythm in the beginning. Fits perfect with the Ottomans. Also that underlying flute in the background puts the icing on the cake for me. Holy crap that flute was amazing.

    Not a bad theme per say, just worse than the remaining. Make it die.
    Please Japan! You can't die yet!
