Speaking of the 25th, I'm currently listening my copy of
It is good.
As good as that collection is, I've heard a lot of these before on several other albums. Not to say I don't love them and don't want this collection as well, though.
But *I'd KILL* if they did an orchestrated selection to some of the more "hidden gems" of the game's soundtracks. D:
FF9's Loss of Me, or FF7's Cosmo Canyon, FFX's Yunalesca fight, hell, a lot of FF12 is largely ignored (and damn that game had a few awesome tracks that'd be *perfect* to orchestrate). I do admire a lot of the non-standard OSTs that have been coming out lately for the series. The SQs were pretty great for picking some of the less-standard themes.
