Angel of Darkness (the whole score), is hands-down the best for me; it has majesty, drama, and sweeping, Gothic beauty that only a genuine, full symphony orchestra can capture. The scores for TR3 and TR4 also exemplify the best of the Core Design era games, and I never get tired of listening to them.

This is not to say I don't like the LAU era soundtracks; some of the tracks from Legend and Underworld are really atmospheric (my favourites include the tracks for England in Legend), but they will always give way to the other scores on my playlist. The score for TR2013 was...interesting, but a bit too reliant on noisy effects for my taste.

My favorite track is the TR3 main theme with TR5 close behind. I also like the AOD tracks and the LAU tracks as well with 1, 2, and 4 after that. But stay away from the TR2013 main theme. That TR2013 theme is like wrapping a turd in tin foil.

I think AOD has the best quality soundtrack, but TR3 has my personal favourite soundtrack. It has some of the most iconic tracks such as 'No Waiting Around'.

The tone and atmosphere of AOD's soundtrack make the game 1 million times better imo. It completes the game and gives it a Luc Besson vibe too. There's just something about that soundtrack that makes the game dark, alluring and unique.

OMG!

I actually happen to think the TR2013 main theme is pretty decent. Not nearly as good as previous tomb raider games, but still good. The only problem is that the rest of the TR2013 soundtrack is completely bland and forgettable...

The problem I had with TR2013 is that it completely eradicated TR's old melody completely. Even in the LAU series, we still got the main melody in it's soundtracks from the TR1 theme which is heard in all other TR Main themes. It disappointed me really. I know it's a reboot but for me it's Lara's signature theme. People would hear it and say "That's the Tomb Raider theme!" and the fact they just got rid of it was a bit off.

^I completely agree. The Tomb Raider theme should have been incorporated into TR2013 in some way.

Best Level-Complete-Track ever created.

Kayaking with this track makes Kayaking epic.

I think this is the most dramatic track in the whole Tomb Raider universe.

:]

It's cool how the main theme fits in here.

I always make a savegame before The Sacred sea to hear this.

I like this ding-dong

Best Main Theme ever.

oh well.

The only track I like.

Didn't fit in the level, but well...

oh well. Everyone loves this, right?

This one, too.

Pure art.

Absolutely. It was another one of those factors for me that I felt CD were just trying way to hard to make it feel like TR hadn't existed for the past 16/17 years or so. And I really couldn't find myself being drawn to the new melody at all. I really hope it doesn't make a comeback.

Take Legend for example, it's main theme barely incorporated the old melody, but then again in some of the ingame music played the old melody which made it reassuring to me that CD had not forgotten the old really good theme of Tomb Raider, and then TRA and TRU's Main Theme's both had the old melody in them and they were two fantastic pieces of music:
