Nice to have you guys back! I knew something was missing from my life. I just couldn't put my finger on it.

I was just making a joke referencing that particular theory. 😀

Would it blow your mind to know that Yuna was dead the whole time. She sacrificed herself to defeat sin and the end of X along with X-2 were all Yuna's Dream. And she is also Ultimecia.  😄

Next is the area themes. The way each theme was composed was to evoke the spirit of the original but convey the change in the world and hope for the future. Gagazet still sounds like mountain people but with a little more joy and liveliness. Besaid maintains the island feel but adds the rhythmic percussion that to me adds a hint of celebration.  The forlorn and simple sounds of the farplane get me every time. 1000 years was the first vocal track from a final fantasy game to really move me in the moment. The score manages to get the gravitas of what came before and add the lightheartedness of the adventure.

Like I said I know I am in the minority but I just love it.

Ok so here it goes.... I originally hated the ffx2 soundtrack. I couldn't understand the style and drastic change. As the years went on it started to grow on me so one summer I had and iPod shuffle with nothing but ffx2 and ff12 on it. I listened to it and listened to it. I started to understand the music and what they were going for.

One of the things I love about vgm is its ability to force me to listen to genres I wouldn't normally even think about. The "lizard lounge " Jazz style of ffx2 was so new to me I just wrote it off. The more I listened, the more I heard the complexity of the arrangements. I followed each instrument in the constantly moving melody and found so much to love. The different sounds and instruments coupled with the relation to the game just hit me and I never looked back. I loved hearing something new in each jazz track and hearing glimpses of different character themes.

As far as the game of FFXIII. I feel that it gets a lot of flack just because it can't live up to people's imagined greatness. I remember the same complaints about FFX who that came out and now all you hear is love. Thirteen told a very concise story with its focus around 6 separate main characters. The one flaw it had was its reliability of the supplemental material not released in the states. It fleshed out the story more and the lore of the world. I have played through it 5 times and enjoy it every time. It does something new with the battles the music is amazing and I love the story and presentation.  I do understand people's gripes with the game but Final Fantasy to me was always about trying something new and taking things in a different direction than the predecessor. I am probably in the minority but I standby my love for the world of Pulse and its music

Well i have to add that one to the list of things to get this year. My wallet is not very happy. Too many collector's editions and soundtracks coming out soon.

I am probably one of the 5 people in the world that LOVE the ffx-2 soundtrack. I can go into why if you'd like but I'm not at liberty to type long passages at the moment

I have mixed feelings about the album. Some tracks I feel we're better in the original and some are better in the remix. I find that some of the original songs I like in game better but when I have my headphones on I like some of the new arrangements better. Nostalgia definitely has something to do with it as the scenes I remember are tied to the sounds and instrumentation of the original tracks. I think it's a matter of taste and how much you've played the original. I'm grateful that the ps4 version allows for the switch.

Yeah I feel like he doesn't get the credit he deserves. Too many people dismissed XIII because they either didn't like the game or didn't like it because it wasn't Uematsu. The thematic material is very appropriate and consistent with the game. I can't wait to see how Legend of Legacy fits into the story

I just got this soundtrack and am liking it very much. It has a very Final Fantasy XIII sound as its Hamauzu at the helm. If you enjoyed XIII as much as I did I recommend giving this one a shot. It has very high production value and very strong themes. The music makes me very curious as to what the game is like. I guess we will find out soon.

I wish there were more Celtic arrangements of video game soundtracks. I feel like there used to be a lot of them but now jazz arrange seems to be more popular. I'm definitely on board with this one

It's tough to say where to start. There is so much good music but I feel most of it can only be appreciated if you know the source material. My suggestion would be to start with 1.5 and 2.5 as these are very good arrangements and retain the heart of the songs without sounding too dated. Taelus is probably more suited to answer this question though. Happy listening. 

Maybe an all square-enix one would work. Then we Could include Kingdom Hearts and chrono games as well as xenogears. You know what? I'm just going to go listen to my iPod. ☺️

Final Fantasy 8 is one of my favorite soundtracks. But if they always put them in our would become Theatrythm Encounter and it would be all final Fantasy music. Maybe I'm into something here....
