Default Finding Similar Music

This is thread is open to anyone that is looking for something similar to songs/soundtracks that You already like to listen to.

I'm looking for music similar to:

OBLIVION - by ESTi
DJMAX PORTABLE Original Sound Tracks
I especially like the beginning part and the violin.

Battle with Zero - by Shinji Hosoe(?)
Megaman Network Transmission
The synth instrument sounds awesome.

I'll post a couple more later depending on how this thread goes.

One man was smart, he felt smart. Two men were smart, they smelt farrr...darn it! I'll never get it right.

What is "the box" that people are supposed to think outside of anyway? Hmm. Maybe it's similar to the Borg from Star Trek who dwelled as a collective hive-mind within a...box/cube. Those that deviated from this hive-mind would, in effect, be thinking outside of the box. it has both a figurative and a literal meaning.

In my opinion, the vibe of this track is similar to a lot of newer Falcom music, such as from the Legend of Heroes series. Though naturally, it also sounds similar to a few tracks from the Bemani games too. Actually, it just finally hit me that Granado Espada might be exactly what you're looking for. I think ESTi even worked on that soundtrack as part of soundTeMP. Here's a sample track. Though if you like violin in general, check out Masashi Hamauzu's newer stuff.

Anything by Shinji Hosoe or Manabu Namiki of course. You may want to track down the little-known Xenosaga II game rip, which has Shinji Hosoe's music for the game. It was never released on an album.

Hi Kaleb.G. Thanks for the recommendations, I wouldn't have known to look Legend of Heroes Bemani games. As for Granado Espada, I'm quite familiar with that soundtrack, Temptation is one of my favorite tracks, along with die Fuge and A Witch On A Diet.
