This is the OST that, in my opinion, started the whole Japanese-soundtrack hype. Why? Because it’s GOOD! Not only does it feature all music from two different games (and it is GOOD music), it also includes two incredibly amazing arranged tracks at the beginning and end of the CD. Such a find is what can brighten an “old-school gamer’s” day. The nostalgia just rushes to you, through all the PCM and whatnot. My favorite tracks (since I couldn’t sample them all) are Matoya’s Cavern, both Preludes, both Towns, both Main Themes, the Ocean Shrine, Chocobo’s Theme, and the Rebel Army’s Theme.
Being older, even the reprint of this CD is hard to find (I somehow got lucky enough to get the first printing). But newer prints may be easier to find.
