    I normally start off with a bit of either Coldplay/Unkle/Hiphop/Orbital and then work my way up to drum and bass/some fast rock!

    speaking of fast rock, qotsa - go with the flow, is one of the best for driving games like burnout, never tried it in wipeout, might be a bit too mental:

    also, this is my favourite music video of all time, i like all sorts of music and video's, but this is just amazing.

    I posted this on the other thread - but this is a more appropriate one, and I still think it's the best music for Zone Mode by miles.

    Philip Glass: 'The Grid' - it's very long, which you need when you're aiming for lvl 100 - and it starts nice and slowly and builds up gradualy to a frantic pace - it's also full of revolving rhythms which kinda fits in with what you're doing.

    Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FvZ3DBI1tO8

    Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=me04B...eature=related

    Part 3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fwPDF...eature=related

    Edit: Oh - and it also fits in really nicely with the divine geometry of the new Fury Zone specific tracks.

    My zone playlist is loaded with my fave zone-worthy tunes from Logistics, High Contrast, more Logistics, you get the picture.
    I've tried to pick songs that will fit regardless of which zone i'm at since i always have my playlist on shuffle and can't be arsed to arrange them properly...
    I have a couple "A State of Trance" podcasts tunes that go pretty well with zone mode.

    It's all about chilled liquid goodness in zone mode....for me at least. Classical works nicely too, although i find symbols quite distracting at times so it has to be the right stuff

    One of my zone faves atm: Logistics - Follow that star


    I wonder if PS still used the G.A.M.E 3.0 album when going for 150

    So many good suggestions. I'm going to try them all. Yeah, I do wonder what the higher level players are listening to past Zone Zeus.

    @Var, yeah, I was experimenting with some classical before listening to it, so the transition was that much cooler. At the beginning the light piano solo blends easily with the blue and green, you almost picture flowers growing. Then later on in the higher classes, you think, this is Tech De Ra -- no flowers here!. The clever thing about TDR is how it fools you into thinking it's an easy track, so that music fits well. It's even better when it starts 50 seconds to a couple minutes later, so the major transition is closer to Phantom and its rusty almost blood red color scheme, past the pinks of rapier. I started with that African Rain selection I linked to earlier, which was cool, and a selection from Bach's Air on a G string was okay, but starting with the first minute and 20 seconds of Grieg's Morning Mood would probably be even better. There are many versions, including a solo piano.

    @Kyonshi and the rest who want to try Rez, the commercial CD (aka, "The Gamer's Guide"), although decent, had shorter edited versions of the music and did not have the longer buildup and many transitions of the in-game music. Luckily, someone out there actually ripped the game's sound data. Here it is.

    I stayed up late, very late playing zone with all the tracks and I couldn't believe how good it was. The rhythm and length, atmosphere, it's all so right. Even the boss music starts near Zen. The transitions don't always match of course, since there are so many, but sometimes they do and while that happens, you have to redefine your limits as to what kinds of beauty are possible in this world.

    You could always experiment with making your own zone specific extended mixes of suitable music using Virtual DJ.

    I did some a while back based from the CD soundtrack from American Beauty but have yet bothered to transfer to the PS3 [slack I know ]

    AFAIK, Rez soundtrack has only been released in Japan under the name "Rez - Gamer's Guide To ..."
