Bartz' Buddy

I know many people appreciated the FFVI OST, but this is a little better. It's how Uematsu wanted it, not how it was! Buy it, if you're a Final Fantasy fan, buy it if you just like good music, buy it, if you want to here the lyrics yo "Aria Di Mezzo Carattere", buy it even if you can't afford it, and you go into debt and lose your house: IT'S THAT GOOD!! You shan't regret it, and if you do...Terra hates you!
~Peace Out!
P.S. Bartz' Buddy wrote it first BABY!

Best Final Fantasy


Final Fantasy VI was the best game of them all. This game capture my soul with it's epic storyline and caputured my heart with its music. This orchastrated soundtrack brings this music to live. I can picture the seens of the saga through the sounds of the violins and flutes. It's music is something that only heart and soul can understand. This is the ultmate cd to add to your collection Final Fantasy VI fans!!!

some of the most beautiful music i've ever heard


Final Fantasy VI included some of Uematsu's best work, and to hear it in full orchestration is fantastic. The songs have been beautifully rearranged, the opening theme is awe-inspiring and the Uematsu's 'aria' is great, although this version is severely shortened, the uncut work is around 22 minutes long! other than that, and the fact that kefka's theme was altered a little too much (still good though) this is a wonderful album that no final fantasy afficionado should be without. buy it.

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
