But when it comes to Megami Tensei's best music, Megami Ibunroku Persona (the album Persona Be Your True Mind).

Agreed 100%.  I reviewed two versions of the MIP soundtrack and enjoyed every track.

Lies!  Nanako's theme is "Everyday's great at your Junes."

"Nineteen" by Phil Lynott is an insanely catchy rock song.  I first heard it in '92 or so when Bad4Good covered it.  Budnick from Salute Your Shorts was in that band; those kids were all 12-15 back then and Steve Vai produced them.

Snow Queen Quest is an alternate story path.  It must be accessed prior to the party going to Sebec and there are a specific set of tasks to do to access it.  The two storylines in Persona are Sebec and Snow Queen. 

As for the difficulty, when I used to mod a MegaTen forum quite a few people played the Japanese Playstation import and they said some parts like Thanatos Tower were insanely sadistic.  But this is older-school MegaTen we're talking about. 

So long as I still get my

MegaTen spell names are not only from Sanskrit.  Megido is Hebrew, taken from "Megiddo" which is synonymous with Armageddon.  I think some come from Latin as well.  Wind spells have always been Garu.  Zan is non-elemental and it being "force" makes sense.  Gry is a non-elemental gravity spell I think.  Those were old-school Persona spells.  There were also earth (magna) and water (aqua) spells as well.

The NES controller one you made for me gets a lot of positive attention at punk shows.

I think this song is the perfect complement to the Murphy's Law year so many of us are having:

MegaTen games have rarely had female leads.  The few I can think of offhand are Shin Megami Tensei If where you can select a male or female avatar, Devil Children: Red Book (Mirai), and Persona 2: Eternal Punishment (Maya.)  One aspect I really liked about EP was the writing and portrayal of adult protagonists.  Granted, the Persona games write teenagers very well, but it would be nice to visit a Persona world with some adults again.  Sometimes those unresolved inner demons from the formative youth years rear their ugly heads in adulthood.  They certainly did for some of EP's characters. 

MegaTen with an adult female lead would be awesome.

And where does the penis monster fit into all that, Meshie boy?  Because you know it ain't MegaTen without a good penis monster.

"Down in a Hole" by Alice in Chains has been popping into my head a lot lately, mainly for the line "I'd like to fly, but my wings have been so denied."

Bury Me Softly In This Womb
I Give This Part Of Me For You
Sand Rains Down And Here I Sit
Holding Rare Flowers
In A Tomb.....In Bloom

Down In A Hole And I Don't Know
If I Can Be Saved
See My Heart I Decorate It
Like A Grave
You Don't Understand Who They
Thought I Was Supposed To Be
Look At Me Now A Man
Who Won't Let Himself Be

Down In A Hole, Losin' My Soul
Down In A Hole, Losin' Control
I'd Like To Fly
But My Wings Have Been So Denied

Down In A Hole And They've Put All
The Stones In Their Place
I've Eaten The Sun So My Tongue
Has Been Burned Of The Taste
I Have Been Guilty
Of Kicking Myself In The Teeth
I Will Speak No More
Of My Feelings Beneath

Oh I Want To Be Inside Of You

Down In A Hole, Losin' My Soul
Down In A Hole, Feelin' So Small
Down In A Hole, Losin' My Soul
Down In A Hole, Out Of Control

I'd Like To Fly
But My Wings Have Been So Denied

SOTM is "Fade to Black" by Metallica.  2009 has just been a downright depressing, Murphy's Law year for almost everyone I know.  The song echoes how we feel or have felt.  I try to stay positive and have been more positive lately, but the complete dejectedness in this song really hits close. 

Life it seems will fade away
Drifting farther everyday
Getting lost within myself
Nothing matters no one else
I have lost the will to live
Simply nothing more to give
There is nothing more for me
Need the end to set me free

Things not what they used to be
Missing one inside of me
Deathly lost this can't be real
Cannot stand this hell I feel
Emptiness is filling me
To the point of agony
Growing darkness taking dawn
I was me but now he is gone

No one but me can save myself but it's too late
Now I can't think think why I should even try

Yesterday seems as though it never existed
Death greets me warm now I will just say goodbye
