Instead of playing all
those Final Fantasy games imagine watching them as movies, accompanied
by a grandiose orchestral score. A score not by famed film composers
John Williams or James Horner, but the grand master of game music,
Nobuo Uematsu. Well, my friends, it is finally here. Well at least
the music part is here. The highly sophisticated music of FFVIII
has been fleshed out even further by Mr. Uematsu and arranger
Shiro Hamaguichi into a full, robust, orchestral score that leaves
the original in the dust. There is nothing like the sound of a
full string section, the emotive voice of a clarinet, or the graceful
breath of a flute: all performed by an ensemble of first class
"The Dance of the Balamb-Fish"
harkens back to the Strauss waltzes of 19th century Vienna. It
is perhaps the most enjoyable track for this reason. "Balamb Garden-Ami"
has a reminiscent and youthful tone, while "The Man with the Machine
Gun" is pure pulsating percussive emotion mixed with brass and
stings. We all know what an adept composer Mr. Uematsu is, but
this recording really makes his work shine. A must purchase for
all lovers of music.
