Nobuo Uematsu's work needs no introduction. If you are a Final Fantasy fan like I am, you will doubtless enjoy these new renditions of classic FF tunes performed by a smaller, more compact orchestral unit. Even if you are not a Final Fantasy fan, I would still recommend you give this record a listen to acquaint yourself with some of the best classical music composed in the modern era! Beautiful melodies and atmospheric instrumentation abound in this stellar album.
Favorite track: Fight with Seymour (FINAL FANTASY X).
