Great soundtrack to a great game,
This review is from: Final Fantasy 8 (4 CD Set) (Audio CD)
I'm a huge fan of the Final Fantasy series, and VIII is probably my favourite.I found this in a japanese bookstore and on impulse forked over the £30 - one of my best impulse buys ever.
74 tracks, a huge amount, and although there a few below par tracks (like Residents), the number of great ones far outweighs this.The first track, Liberi Fatali,from the fantastic opening to FFVIII is in my opinion, probably the best piece of FF music in any of the games. The highlights continue - from the familiar (Balamb Garden) to the just plain brilliant (Eyes On Me and Fishermans Horizon among others).
Eyes On Me is a fine song and it is repeated in the Ending Theme, a 13 minute track which brings back memories of the ending to the game and forms a fine conclusion to the four CD set.
I can only recommend this to Final Fantasy fans, but to anyone who likes FFVIII, this soundtrack is top-notch.
