So finally got the hourly music today now my town hall ... sorry 'residents service centre' has opened up (where're Pelly/Phyllis? ) and so far I really don't like it!

NL music was beautiful and this is just so plinky plonky and sounds a bit like an arcade game mixed in with some older remixed tracks from WW.

What does everyone else think it just can't be me?
(note I've only heard between 7am-10am and 12-1pm so far).

I agree. I never thought it was possible, but they managed to create worse music than WW. NH was really interesting to me, because it had the exact opposite effect that the reviewers all pointed out. I actually really enjoyed it when I first started playing. After everything started being added in, the less and less I was found myself enjoying it. The crafting was fun... For about 2-3 days. Now, it feels much more like a chore that didn't have be tacked in. I wish they would have had the option of whether or not your weapons break. The music is just the icing on the cake for me.

I've come to terms with the crafting, but just can't get over the music so I'm hoping the nighttime stuff will be nicer. Why Nintendo why??

I've just logged in again now at 5 nearly 6pm and it's even worse!

I don't think the music is bad. The problem is they use the same musical ensemble for a lot of hourly themes and the same motif. The night tracks, mainly 7 P.M. to 12 A.M. sound similar and all use an acoustic guitar, bass, percussion, and synth. I wish they changed it up more and added stuff like an accordion or a piano.

I feel like the music isn't objectively bad (WW was my first AC game, so I love that music, even though it seems to be the worst for a lot of people), but it doesn't meet what my expectations were.

Having us wait almost a week to get hourly music set my expectations for it sky high, and the songs have fallen very short of that for me. :c

I like it so far, but nothing will beat the Gamecube music for me.

[i]WW was my first AC game, so I love that music, even though it seems to be the worst for a lot of people), but it doesn't meet what my expectations were./i]

You know, I was one who hated Wild World's music. Although is is still behind the original (which I don't think anything will ever top) and NL (beautiful), I think Wild World as a whole was judged on an I fair standard on my part. I felt largely let down due to how good AC was on GC. The lack of holidays was a bummer, and the music was inferior, which is why I hated it. But looking back, it wasn't near as bad as I thought I initially. NH though, is garbage. WW's music was far better than this crap.

i'm waiting until my game unlocks hourly music for me to pass full judgement , just  please save me from this same guitar riff every moment     

maybe I'll like it, I'm one of the people who loves wild world / city folk's hourly music, and I prefer them to new leaf's which many speak so highly of . so we'll see

Gonna have to agree with the fact that I'm not too keen on the music this time around, it seems to lack the quirky charm that all the other games I've played had. Maybe I'm holding it up to a standard that it just wont hit. Maybe it'll grow on me only time will tell!

NH has, I'll admit, pretty mediocre music in comparison to past games. There are some tracks especially that get pretty annoying. However, the hourly music really isn't all bad - in fact, there are actually several tracks that sort of redeemed New Horizons' soundtrack for me.

11 AM is the best morning track. It's actually the first one I heard (which I think set my standards a little too high) and compared to the other tracks around it, it's more fun to listen to and less annoying.

"I've just logged in again now at 5 nearly 6pm and it's even worse!"
Wait it out. 5 PM is an annoying track, but 6 PM is a lot easier to listen to for an hour and I actually look forward to hearing it. It's a very good evening track. It also makes me nostalgic for the WW/CF tracks.

Several tracks in this game sound a bit like tracks from past games, and 2 AM with its piano reminds me a bit of New Leaf's soundtrack. It's a beautiful track in general. Just don't stay up for 3 AM, because that one is...very out of place.

However, there is no question that the best NH track has to be 5 AM. My sister and I have gotten up early multiple times to hear it. The music is worth waking up early to play during, not to mention that the sky at that point is just beautiful.

My point is: even in the middle of a mediocre soundtrack, there are still some good tracks that are worth listening to even if you don't care for NH's hourly music.

"maybe I'll like it, I'm one of the people who loves wild world / city folk's hourly music, and I prefer them to new leaf's which many speak so highly of . so we'll see"
I'm the same way. WW/CF actually did have good music, especially in the evening and late at night. 8 PM, 10 PM, and 2 AM are my top three from those games. I also don't care nearly as much for NL's soundtrack as a lot of people do, although it's still good music and I like it fine (5 PM and 8 PM especially are good).

I play a lot at 8AM to do my morning routine/island check, and I really dislike that track. I know 8AM isn't insanely early by any means, but it just feels too upbeat for the time of day and like a lot of the midday tracks. I wanted something more calm with some hints of peppiness, kind of like "the day's just starting so there's that morning calm, but we need to get ready to get motivated!".

I would also say that 5PM is one of the more annoying tracks for me as well. On the other hand, I really like the noon track. I feel like it fits the time of day perfectly, kind of like "let's go explore on your lunch break!". I don't mind the night tracks, but they do all sort of seem to blend together.

I feel like I'm in the minority saying I like the New Horizons soundtrack. I do think it's a little repetitive and can get old at times during a few of the hourly tracks, but given time I think it'll become just as nostalgic and fun to listen to as the past games. I find it quirky in its own way and I think that'll help it in the long run.

Without a doubt my favorite track is the 5AM track. I discovered it one morning when I had to wake up early and thought I'd hop on to play at that time. Such a beautiful tune for early morning and I wish I could listen to it while I played for most of the other hours .

But if you're a little annoyed or tired of any of the NH tracks and want something more nostalgic, just get the Forest Life track from KK and play it on music players around town. It's a nice little version of the main theme from the original GameCube game!

Unfortunately, music players in the game don’t really have a very wide range when playing even at the highest volume setting. It definitely makes me wish that the Nook Phone had some sort of app where you could access your music library and play K.K. songs over the hourly music if that’s what you wanted. Then maybe the hourly music would feel less grating to some people.

Yeah that's true, but hey that's a good idea for an app on the Nook Phone that would play music! I hope Nintendo is taking notes .

To be honest, I haven't paid much attention to the hourly music before. Just once in awhile will I notice it if I stop and stand still for a few moments, but it really doesn't bother me. I have set out the bamboo speakers around the island, but the loudest setting isn't really very loud. You can only hear them if you're  really close to the speakers anyway, which might be a good thing since not every speaker is playing the same thing. It could be chaotic if that were the case.
