EDITORS’ NOTES

Composer Yoko Shimomura’s soundtrack for the 2016 fantasy role-playing video game Final Fantasy XV captures both dusty highway vibes and the feeling of epic battles between good and evil. Created over a 10-year span, it includes swelling numbers built around violin (“Somnus”) and piano (“Sorrow Without Solace”) that add to the grandeur the series has always delivered. Yet Shimomura also mixes in more playful, country music-inspired cuts featuring harmonica (“Broken Down”) and electric guitar (“Bros on the Road”), with textures adding greater depth to the album.

Amazing work!

Now that the error with Magna Insomnia has been corrected, I can review this album in full. It's absolutely brilliant, and in my opinion it's the best soundtrack in the entire Final Fantasy series. Yoko Shimomura has done some truly FANTASTIC work here, and created one of the greatest soundtracks in gaming history. Absolutely stunning, and 100% worth the asking price. Must-buy!

Good but glitchy

Love the album, Shimomura could make a trip to costco seem epic. I am having a problem with track #249, "Magna Insomnia"; audio cuts out about a minute in. I've downloaded multiple times and it keeps happening.

Fantastic!!

One of my favorite FF scores, i think it's definitely my top 2 first being FFX. But of course i expected that because it's the incredibly talented Yoko Shimomura
