Moment of Decision for me too. Found that out just now. I read your post and was like: "Moment of Decision isn't half as painful to me as Caged Heart or Shadow of the Truth." Well, after listinging them all again, Moment of Decision also did some things to me. I played through Emi's path this week, and I loved it. However, at the point you stated, I pretty much felt like I got a few knives in my chest. They stayed there as I played, only to go away as I finished Emi. I never realized the song was this painful, even after the good ending fresh in my mind.

Yeah, Shadow of the truth, Caged Heart, and Cold Iron make my heart ache. Shadow of the truth especially. Those 3 themes also all play during bad endings. Well made themes.

You guys forgot Painful History, how could you?? :evil: (only those who played Hanako's route, I guess)
Everyone hides who they are at least some of their time. Sometimes you bury that part of yourself so deeply that you have to be reminded it's there at all. And sometimes you just want to forget who you are all together.

I played all the routes and Painful History didn't give me the feels. It's certainly a sad song, but Shadow of truth just moves me more.

Oh my god, Shadow of the Truth T.T
I never listened to the whole soundtrack like you'd listen to an album or something, as I'm afraid the more I listen to it, the less feels I'll get.
So I just listen to an occasional track once in a while. I never got to Shadow of the Truth.
Just checked it out to see which one it was...
Definitely one of the most moving tracks of this soundtrack, associated with some of the most painful moments of this route.

Thanks for letting me know about it :P I suppose I was too busy crying to check which track was playing when this one did, lol

Painful History is emotional, but Innocence moved me so much more. I think its mainly because it's what plays during the finale in the park with Hanako, where she finally breaks down and confesses. It never fails to bring on the tears.

Yes Innocence is more moving to me at least. I remember the scene in Rin's route where she was sleeping on the desk by the window, and tears began rolling down her face. That scene gave me so much feels, oh my god. I could not stop thinking about it.

That is mainly what i associate it with. Moment of decision is more synonymous with Rin and Shadow of truth is just. . . . feels.

Personally I don't like Afternoon. One theme I actually don't like hearing. I prefer Daylight.

I like both of them, they're so soothing..

Breathlessly breaks my heart and makes me cry, and Aria de l'Etoile is like a drug that makes me feel so damn happy and, well, cry as well. So those two, probably.

But also many others. Wiosna is so symbolic, it's like the theme of all those private KS-reading moments; and so is Passing of Time to a somewhat lesser extent. Afternoon feels like this amazing world I dive into every time I read KS.
I could honestly list most of this tracklist along with an explanation for the meaning of each track for me. This OST as a whole is so amazing. If I had to pick one that made me feel the most emotional, it's probably either Breathlessly or Aria de l'Etoile.
