Voted for Wandering Ghosts, but it's basically tied with WCP.

Also, you posted a great arrangement of tracks Lelygax!

I think Akira Yamaoka may have done the drum programming on "Crystal Teardrop". That little bit of trivia pleases me. ;D I know he contributed a little bit to the score, and pretty sure it was drum programming, and pretty sure that was a particular song mentioned. Been a while.

He's credited for "rhythm arrange" on Dracula's Castle and The Tragic Prince. Maybe you thought it was Crystal Teardrops because its percussion track is very uniquely echoing and hollow, and tends to leave an impression.

As for me, my very favourite came up in an earlier thread:

Dance of Gold, from Symphony of the Night. The grandeur of this track is palpable. It's not an empty, vacuous sort of majesty either, but a supremely confident display of sweeping motifs; the highs and the lows. The composition is allowed to breathe, and it's not chained down by a mandated action backbeat like some later Yamane tracks. It is the classiest.

I'll stick with that for the sake of producing an answer, even if it isn't nearly as clear-cut of a choice if given serious thought, due to the soundtrack's general level of quality.

I have to choose Dance of Pales (or Waltz of the Pearls).  There are many great pieces in the game, but this one in particular always makes me breathe with wonder when I hear it.

I don’t have the words to do it justice.  It’s a beautifully measured track with impeccable arrangement.  If I put Olrox’s Quarters out of mind (which is no easy thing) I have this image of two strangers dancing in a garden beneath a full moon; the dance starts slow, hesitantly yet with elegance, and soon reaches a crescendo of euphoria.  Perhaps the two may become lovers.

I’ll never have a go at the Renaissance/Victorian architecture introduced under the likes of Symphony/Metroidvania games under IGA tenure (or thereabouts) because locales like Olrox’s Quarters with the Dance of Pales BGM really stand out as some of the series’ greatest triumphs.

I do like the saturn version of drac's castle, that little Umph at the end somehow gives the whole song more energy.

I voted for wandering spirits, I love the midi power spanish guitar even better which pushed my vote
