OP updated. Easily the best album that Square Enix has released this year IMO.

I'm glad to hear you think that, Ygg. I'm waiting for my mega-package to arrive from CDJ still (SQChip2, Beer SQ LE, Battle SQ LE, SoM Genesis, and this). I'm going to go into a Square Enix nostalgia-coma.

The album reminds a lot to Super Arrange Version album of Ys Origin at times. More importantly is the guy in the drums, dude is a magician.

Edit: Now I know why the music sounds so much like the SAV of Ys Origin (or Falcom/jdk Band in general), there are two guys that has worked doing tons of music for Falcom games before. Masaru Teramae (Electric Guitar) and Atsushi Enomoto (Electric Bass Guitar).

Ygg, make that three people. synth/keyboard is Noriyuki Kamikura, an incredible composer in his own right and former member of Basiscape who is now part of jdk band.

Review to come shortly. I've listened to this nonstop and am loving it.
