Japanese vocals: They are quite the amazing experience to listen to when you don't know the language. Combine that with the diverse (and extremely cool hard-rock) sounds of Falcom and you have quite the sound.

Falcom has actually made 4 soundtracks to make profit on that maazing sound. Those soundtracks are the "Falcom Vocal Collections." FVC4 being their last one, this music comes from a lot of the later stuff, which some Falcom fans consider to be the "crappy" stuff (the "old-school Falcom" kids disregard everything after '95 from Falcom). However, there are plenty of amazing vocals to go around on this CD.

Granted, not every song is great, but there's different styles and thus there is at least one really enjoyable track for everyone. I personally like tracks 1 and 6, both from the "Feena" CD Falcom released. Oh, keep in mind that every song from a FVC is from another soundtrack...NOTHING new is created on these. The advantage for a non-Japanese-speaking person buying these, however, is that about half of the vocal tracks come from the end of Drama CDs, which are a real waste of money to buy separately.

So, if you don't wanna pick up all 5 Popful Mail Paradise CDs, the Feena CD, Falcom Special Box '95 and '96, the Legend of Xanadu II Drama CD, and some Legend of Heroes III Drama CDs, all for some vocals...get this CD!
