While there are many “defining” features of ATLUS’ long running Persona RPG series, one consistent throughout its entire history is its soundtrack. From Megami Ibunroku Persona‘s (PS1) composition of Aria of the Soul which continues with the series to this day to the high-octane awesomeness offered in Persona 5 Royal. Were I only permitted to listen to one franchises soundtrack for the rest of the eternity; this would easily be my top pick. While some of the franchise’s soundtracks have made it to western audiences in CD or Vinyl form, until now there hasn’t been an official way to stream the music… but the game has now changed.
Approximately 750 songs from the series have now been made officially available to stream via Spotify to your heart’s content. This includes soundtracks from Megami Ibunroku Persona and its PSP Remake, both Persona 2’s, Persona 3, Persona 4, Persona 5, the various spin-off games, and select live concerts.
Now, it can be blimmin’ challenging to track down the exact songs, with the album names in mixed English and Japanese, and the sheer number of remixes on Spotify. Thankfully, the folks at AniPlaylist (a big shout-out to them for discovering this) have tracked down all the songs and added them to one, 746 song playlist. With more than 24 hours of songs in the one list… get ready for your Persona music binge!
