Stella Glow and Deep Labyrinth Music:

I was pretty harsh on Stella Glow, with only 12 songs out of its massive soundtrack making my hall of fame.  The reason for this is pretty obvious -- most of the soundtrack wasn't actually composed by Yasunori Mitsuda.  Between all the guest j-pop vocal pieces and the Tsuchiya interloper there wasn't much meat left to chew on.

Deep Labyrinth did a lot better, 16 of its songs reached the hall of fame, for the obvious reason that it was composed solely by Yasunori Mitsuda.  It's amazing what you can do if you let talent rise to the top.

What does this portend for Inazuma 11?  Well, the first two games were composed by Mitsuda alone, while the remaining two were collaborations.  So expect a similar drop off in results.

Currently the Hall of Fame sits at 4892 songs, still 11 days in length.  But let's see how things look at the end of Inazuma. . .
