All Sounds of Final Fantasy I • II


Review by · June 23, 2000

All Sounds of Final Fantasy I • II was destined to be a classic. This is the OST that, in my opinion, started the whole Japanese-soundtrack hype among importers in the West. Why? One, because of name recognition; two, 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 are “Matoya’s Cave,” both Prelude tracks, both Town themes, both Main Themes, “Underwater Temple,” “Chocobo Theme,” and “Rebel Army Theme.”

Being older, even the 1994 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.
