Soundtracks need to not be distracting during schoolwork or other tasks. That's why many people listen to piano covers of their favorite songs while doing things like writing essays. But some scores are better than others when it comes to playing the entire OST.

10 Gris

Along with powers associated with her dress, later in the game she finds her voice and can use it in the environment.
