Beautiful Music!

A great "sequel" to the first Distant Worlds soundtrack! These new arrangements of music want you to go back and play each of the Final Fantasy games and drown in the mystical melodies. Nobuo Uematsu is a genius!

Great, except for one thing

They translated Suteki da ne! The whole reason it was kept in Japanese for the NA FFX release was because the producers thought the song would be ruined if it was translated and re-sung, and I can guarantee that that is the case.

Beautiful

Final Fantasy has some of the best music from any video game series and possibly sone of the best music ever wrote period. This is a must have for any fan of the series or just someone who enjoys this type of music. I'm jealous that my friend was able to see this live when it was in San Francisco lol

About Nobuo Uematsu

A prolific and versatile composer of popular video game and anime scores, most notably for the ubiquitous Final Fantasy game series, Nobuo Uematsu was born and raised in Kochi, Japan. A self-taught piano player, he graduated from Kanagawa University and played keyboards in local bands, eventually finding work as a composer for radio commercials by sending out his music demos. He moved into the video game medium in the mid-'80s when a friend offered work at the company then known as Squaresoft (later Square Enix). There, he composed music for dozens of games, including the first Final Fantasy installment, released in 1987. He went on to write or co-write music for the international blockbuster series through 2002's Final Fantasy XI. During that time, he released an album of original electronic keyboard music in 1994 titled Phantasmagoria, and many other game scores including 1995's Chrono Trigger (co-written with Yasunori Mitsuda).

In his break from the Final Fantasy series after the 11th game, he composed a film score for 2003's Ah! My Goddess: The Movie, and founded his own companies, Smile Please in 2004 and Dog Ear Records Co., Ltd. in 2006. He also provided music for over a dozen video games including 2006's Blue Dragon, and television music for the 2007 anime series based on the Blue Dragon game. Uematsu composed music for the anime television series Guin Saga in 2009, and finally returned to the Final Fantasy franchise as the main composer for Final Fantasy XIV in 2010. He continued a dedicated schedule of game scoring into the 2010s, including but not limited to 2012's Fantasy Life, 2013's Hometown Story and Granblue Fantasy (both with Tsutomu Narita), and 2014's Terra Battle. In 2015, Square Enix released Bra Bra Final Fantasy: Brass de Bravo, the first in a series of recordings that arranged Uematsu's music from the Final Fantasy franchise for the Siena Wind Orchestra. ~ Marcy Donelson
