    Shoshone: I forgot how awesome this war theme was. One of the few positive war themes in the game. This one is actually heroic sounding.

    'Murica: Terribly done civ with terribly done music. Shame they botched my home country so hard... At least the Shoshone are Murican...

    America - 6 - the least exciting/fitting war theme out of the remaining ones. Makes me yawn most of the time.

    Persia -22
    Poland - 23
    Polynesia - 22
    Portugal - 22
    Russia - 23 - people were downvoting Russia's peace theme for being "too cold", "too intimidating", "too unsettling" etc. Well guess what - these features work wonders in war theme. If only you guys knew what the choir is actually singing in this theme... (I do :))

    I'll follow the idea that the American war theme is sub-par. America the Beautiful is not a bad song, and the peace theme really works, but I think the same arrangement, in a slightly more somber tone, does not work for a War theme. Could've been better, I think.

    It's harder and harder to find someone to vote (again) for, so I'll go with Greece. One of the few War themes that manage to be somewhat slow, but still work really well.

    Brazil: This is the type of theme that makes me think that imma get my butt kicked. Impressive overall.

    Egypt: Gonna let someone downvote America and I'll stick to this one. Honestly, America's war theme had more moments for me then this one.

    Russia: The cold, dark feeling didn't work so well for the peace theme. It's absolutely perfect for the war theme, as if every Russian citizen was listening to this song during the annexation of Crimea.

    Celts: I'm really not willing to downvote anyone else right now. I heard this for the first time when I declared war on the Celts for spying on me multiple times as the Zulus. I found the theme to not really sound all that Celtic or intimidating. During the incredible Zulu war theme, however, I destroyed her military and her cities with my Impis. (Those guys are AWESOME!!!)

    Shoshone: This is some very powerful music right here. A good piece to bring fear into your enemies.

    Persia: I agree with pyroflare77. This is song is more depressing and less intimidating.

    Throwing a vote for the Haka-inspired theme. Original and catchy.

    I think the Germans and Celts are in line for next one out, starting with the Germans. The Celtic theme sounds somewhat generic and not-very-Celt, but it's still better than the lacking-in-energy German tune, I believe.
