A thread-bump, but a worthy thread-bump. Especially for those recommendations. .hack GU has some amazingly good (and under-appreciated) music. The original Crystal Chronicles has some amazing music too, and FFVIII ... man, I need to re-add that to my collection. That is one of Uematsu's strongest OSTs.

Lately I've been listening to this fantastic vocal image album for Evangelion that I fell in love with over a decade ago and still love. It's "Refrain ~these songs were inspireed by Evangelion~" by Yoko Takahashi. The slow songs are just really good j-pop ballads. Only like 4 of the songs on the album have any tie-in to Eva, but it's good nonetheless.

If you want to hear some good jazzy, piano-centric stuff, there's a composer named Takeshi Abo that you'll want to follow. He's worked on a bunch of visual novels that RPGFan's own Neal Chandran likes: namely, the Memories Off series, and the "infinity" series (Never7, Ever17, etc).

To echo some previous posts...

Mesh, I friggin' love you for listing Drunkard's Prayer. The song my wife and I danced to at our wedding was "I Want You To Be My Love," and we still listen to that album. Frequently. I got the new one, wasn't super-impressed, but I like Ohio too (who doesn't). And Iron and Wine is a win.

Tooks mentioned the Fable soundtrack. of the three Fable games, I find the most recent to be the best, and it has great "chill" music.

I gotta second the Eno - Before and After Science. No, not game music, but amazingly calming. Not surprising since many of Eno's songs were inspired by sailing/boating. Definitely throw yourself at that one... Another Green World is practically the same album too, feels like Disc 1 and 2, so might as well grab both.

Damn though, the softer stuff on the FFXIII OST is just wonderful. I'm not good with titles, but a few of the vocal tunes (not the major j-pop crap song) are really beautiful and serene. DEFINITELY pick that one up, but I'm guessing you already have, as it's the OST of the decade. Though Nier is a close second.

FFVIII is one of my favorite OSTs. I don't think about the softer tracks much, but now that you mention it, it has some wonderful material. The orchestral arrangement of The Oath is one of my favorite arranged pieces.

- order the new album

(And pretty much a majority of everything else from that game.)






(This one's not from an RPG, but it's still epic relaxing stuff.)

That's all from the top of my head, meaning I've most likely forgotten some epic tunes, but those are good starters.

Thanks for sharing the soundtracks, i was searching about tracks like this

Thanks :)
