Anybody else a big fan of his music? I love the orchestrations that are available....too bad that is seems like he isnt doing all of the final fantasy muisc anymore...
Suteki da Ne (orchestrated version)
One Winged Angel (orchestrated version)
Blue Fields (orchestrated version)
final fantasy is an awesome band!
First of all, what kind of-... how dumb-.... UGH!
It's people like that, "Final fantasy is a great band", that are the reason we as a species are so developmentally slow.
BTW, Nobou Uematsu is definitely one of, if not the, bet composers of our time. My favorites would definitely have to be One winged angel, and the Aeris theme. Both wonderful pieces of Music.
Nobuo is even doing at least one track for Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
One of my favorite tracks, other than the ones listed, is Cid's THeme from FF7. I like the epic ones.
Everything off of Final Fantasy VII was classic, even though it wasn't fully orchestrated.
The final boss theme of Final Fantasy VIII was awesome, even though the game sucked. The piece had hints of Vincent's theme, and some hints of Final Fantasy 3, which I found to be very neat.
Nobuo Uematsu is one of the most celebrated Japanese music composers, even though most (if not all) of his works were composed for video games (namely Final Fantasy). This's inspiring. I'm not sure what anyone else thinks about this, but if you can get your name out there with such a modest root, then you're something special.
His music on the NES Final Fantasy 1 is what really made the game stand out so much... Because you could play the rpg without getting tired of the melodies. (Because they are very agreeable.)
Some of my favorites though, are the Laguna battle theme (FF8), Final Boss Battle (FF9), as well as the real FF3's boss battle theme.
I just love the Final Fantasy music by Nobuo Uematsu. Especially 'Water' from FF7 - that's just the perfect song to sleep with...
While I love the music from the FF series, I'm never sure exactly whether it's because I find the music to be really good or whether I'm just riding the nostalgia wave of playing a great game.
I tend to be of the opinion that it's the latter.
