Professor Layton and the Last Specter is the fourth game in the Layton series, however it is set earlier in the timeline of Layton games, being the first canonical game.

Last Specter
The title track to
Professor Layton and the Last Specter features a touch more funk than previous songs in the series, but it's almost immediately noticeable that the track fits into the Layton series style that the games have since become known for.

Luke's Door
This track is a fun theme that features many of the European sounds that are found littered throughout the series. There is a swing feel to the percussions and its theme.

Final Boss
This Final Boss theme plays during the end of the game, but being a Layton game, it works very different to how you may expect a boss battle to work. It plays during the last round of puzzles that all feature a sense of tension, which the song helps amplify.
