I'm not sure. PW music is pretty cool, but Hotel Dusk music is more... Mood setting, I think.

Plus, the hotel music stays in my head longer... So I think I'm going to go with Hotel Dusk.

Your thoughts?

Ooooh, tough call.
I have Cadenza and the Hotel Dusk soundtrack on my little MP3 player. Both are excellent, but I guess Hotel Dusk has my vote. I can listen to it all day, man.

Stupid. PW Music is much cooler, duh.

Hotel Dusk is somehow.... Like, old music for the '80's?

Dusk has some cool tracks, but AA's tracks cancel out Dusk. Plus, AA's awesome ones cancel out Dusk's awesome ones.

I just wish there was a jukebox-like feature in AA, so I don't have to play through nearly all of T&T just to hear The Bitter Taste of Truth.

The first PW game has my favourite music X) But I also really really like that one song from Hotel Dusk, I think it's called "Violet Sky"?? It's the song that plays after you help resolve a character's problem. Really bittersweet, but lovely~ T^T

I think both games' soundtracks suit each game really really well, but I generally like PW's soundtrack better. (Especially AA and T&T)

Depends what mood I'm in. I prefer PW music when I'm more in a up beat mood or just plain hyper x)
I like Dusk music as relaxing music but I don't like it all the time.

Both have awesome music though :D

MAN, a hard choice.
I think pw1 had a better overall soundtrack, but Hotel Dusk has some tracks that blow away pw (last sleep, long night, ON THE ROCKS). The problem with hd was most of the best tracks never got used, and the elevator music you hear most of the time kind of grinds away forever.

so in-game, pw is more balanced, but for listening I like Hotel Dusk more.

In some ways, it's not a fair comparison. The PW trilogy was all chip tunes for the GBA converted to the DS. It's not until Apollo Justice that we hear DS music to compare with Dusk's DS music.

Hotel Dusk has a ton of tunes that really set the mood. With on the Rocks, you really get the aura that you're tearing someone apart for information they're not going to give up. The mood of the Hotel does a 180 when you listen to High Spirits in Louie's Bar. (That actually made it hard for me to use the JukeBox there, the Bar's theme song was really catchy and you almost didn't want to listen to the other songs because of it even though they're really really good.) Resolution really beats any cross examination music in PW. And no one can say that the Deep Sleep in the basement didn't make your heart skip a beat.

There are only a handful of songs in the entire GS series that can compare with the mood setting the songs in Dusk do. Highlights include Kristoph's prison music, the psycho lock theme, and the court themes for GS1 and GS3.

Do I think Hotel Dusk's music is better? By far. Would Dusk's music work in GS or vice versa? No they wouldn't. The PW music is great too in it's own regard.

I prefer dusk's just because of the mood music. In a way it can hold its on setting were wright gives you hints on what you are suppose to be doing... If dusk did that I don't think I would have gotten lost a few times. That game certainly used my brain.

Phoenix's music is more catchy and up-beat. It's supposed to really push you along and make you figure things out fast to catch the criminal.


Whereas Hotel Dusk's music makes you sit back, and try to reflect on all the events and piece it together yourself. It forces you to stop and say "Ok, I learned this. Now what does it mean?"

It's slow pace gives you the time to sort things out and draw conclusions about people and events, as opposed to Phoenix's music, which lets you pretty much go on attack mode and never let up.

I prefer Phoenix's tunes. They're more hummable.
HD's soundtrack is awesome, though.

Sorry, Dusk, but PW beats you in every category. That's not to say I don't like the Dusk music, but PW is just...better, I guess. I do like some of the Dusk themes a lot though...especially the one it plays when you're saving,etc...:will:

Honestly, the music from Hotel Dusk isn't music I'd listen to if I weren't playing the game, whereas I listen to PW music all the time. Even though the music from the PW games is lower quality, the score of the tunes far surpasses that of Hotel Dusk. Even if HD music was professionally remixed, or an orchestra (or any kind of band, really) played HD music, and also did the same with PW music, I think the PW music would sound better.

In my opinion the music of Hotel Dusk fits well in the game, but that's about it. Also in elevators, too, I suppose.

As far as the original music, I enjoy Hotel Dusk more (pretty close, though). I definitely listen to the Orchestra and Jazz albums, and Jawsy's stuff a lot more than I do HD, though o:

... I'd have to go with HD music, its a little more real sounding and I don't mind listening when it comes up randomly on my playlist. Sometimes the techy sound of the PW songs gets on my nerves.

Phoenix Wright had an awesome soundtrack through and through; there were hardly any songs I actually didn't like.

Hotel Dusk, on the other hand, is something of a mixed bag. On one hand, it's got some music I liked even better than PW, like "On the Rocks", "Resolution", "The Last Sleep", and "Dream's End" were a few I enjoyed. But on the other, there's the elevator music. "Monochrome", for example, gets old quick.

EDIT: Also liked Hotel Dusk's "Play It Again".

I'm afraid I cannot pass judgment in this case.

Hm... good point, Monochrome does have a certain merit to it. In fact, it would likely make walking around seem interesting. But at the same time, I can totally imagine hearing it in an elevator.

I'm favouring PW because its exciting and makes me feel enthusiastic for the game. Though Dusk is also really cool. It really sets the mood for the game. I liked the jukebox option. XD

just my two cents: for me it's PW all the way, in HD the elevator music overshadowed all the others, when any theme came through I quickly forgot it. When I want that kind of mood I put on Badalamenti's Twin Peaks anyway.

You just have to listen to the PW orchestra albums to get all the power of the themes (in spite of one or two ill-advised and butchered "connections" between themes in some mixes).

I can't say the same about the PW jazz album, though. With the exception of Godot's Theme, there is nothing particulary jazzy about PW's music, and I think it doesn't translate well. I haven't listened to that twice.

No, I think that HD's music clearly would have deserved that last treatment instead, and I am sure the result would have been great.

All in all, I think Wooster said it best, each soundtrack is great in its own regard, and both are doing their job very well.

Well, first things first, AA has a superior library since we're talking about FOUR games versus one. Even JFA is chipping in some good/decent tunes [Trial, Cornered, Defendant Lobby] although as a personal opinion I really think PW:AA has the worst music out of the series. Anyway, I only really liked about 5 or 8 Hotel Dusk tracks, so I have to vote PW here.

I'd have to say the HD.

Like someone else said, the music in PW sounds a bit too pixely, while HD sounds much more... How do I put this? It actually sounds like real music, not something from a video game soundtrack. :3

Phoenix Wright. It just seems to have more variety and it's my style. Hotel Dusk has some nice tunes here and there, but there are times when it's just too slow.

Phoenix Wright. I found some of the Hotel Dusk songs forgettable.

Having said that, however, I really enjoyed Rainy Night, and On the Rocks. Like, really. :ron-jazz:
