In no particular order:
Shoji Meguro - Persona 4 OST
This one surprised me!
I can definately understand where you're coming from on this, but at the same time I wasn't the biggest fan of Persona 4's OST (didn't stop it from being a killer game)
Maybe when I play through it again, I'll listen a bit more closely, don't get me wrong I thought the music was nice, but not my favorite (SMT Nocturne would be among them if I were to include that)
Still, very nice to see this regardless, if a huge surprise.
I'll post mine eventually...
I got up to the ninth band and my browser threw a fit. So, in no particular order:
