This is a thread to discuss music that is top-tier from the NEC PC-98's (or 88) software catalogue.

I've yet to download the .something files for the music, but I have been listening to http://gyusyabu.ddo.jp/ website of several PC-98 game tracks. For right now my favorite music as follows:

1) http://gyusyabu.ddo.jp/MP3/1988/SOR98.html
Sorcerian

Just ridiculously good upbeat tune. Sounds much better in its native format than in the symphony arrange.

2)http://gyusyabu.ddo.jp/MP3/1996/YUNO1.html - TOP VIDEO (Beginning part and part that starts at 4:08)
YUNO

I can only describe this as sparkly music.

3) http://gyusyabu.ddo.jp/MP3/1989/FH1.html - (Middle of video [Beethoven 5th?] to end)
FireHawk

4) http://gyusyabu.ddo.jp/MP3/1989/PV1.html
Providence

Wow. Wow.

Just about anything Falcom released on it, their composers always got good sound out of it. I liked when they got up to Brandish 3, Legend of Heroes III and LOH IV, where they were basically doing epic RPG scores on it. The various remakes of both totally pale in comparison to the PC-98 originals. And of course, classic Ys and Sorcerian.

Yuzo Koshiro was always a fan of it, he redid a couple scores using PC-98 synth (Etrian Odyssey and one of the Metrovanias).

Other than the ones Falcom released, I don't think there was too much officially released PC-98 music. I'm more than happy to be proven wrong.

Umemoto-san's work on YUNO is crazy good.

Prudish people like myself may be inclined to say that the music is too good for eroge. Others would say it's just what eroge deserves.

The game's soundtrack for the PC-98 is finally getting an official release this year. Not too pleased that it is on Blu-Ray though.

Brandish 3 disc 2 is definitely the most elegant music I own in vgm.

'Major Demon' - cool title track name and what I think is the second major track from Sorcerian.

All Sounds of Zavas is another great album to own for PC-98; One that I successfully played out in its entirety at work once.
