RPGFan Music: memória! / The Very Best of Yoko Shimomura
Dearly Beloved, Beware the Forest's Mushrooms, or we'll sing an Elegie as we cry Omnis Lacrima.

2008's drammatica easily ranks up there as my all-time favorite arrangement album, not only because it features the music of my all-time favorite composer, but also because of the incredible production and arrangements it showcased. Six years later, here we are with a spiritual follow-up: memória! / The Very Best of Yoko Shimomura.

Being arguably RPGFan's biggest Shimomura fan, I felt compelled to take this one on. But did this markedly different style of arrange album live up to my lofty expectations? You must click below to find out. Also samples. Always samples.
