Final Fantasy VII Reunion Tracks

Cover

Addenda
This album was released just 20 days after the International version of Final Fantasy VII, and it commemorates the Triple Platinum Anniversary of the title. Now while it does indeed contain 16 tracks that are also on the OST, the last three tracks for me are worth the cost. Hamaguichi's orchestrations breathe new life into any Uematsu work, but these songs in particular stand out for me. The Main Theme is beautifully orchestrated, and it really drives home how well the music was composed, despite the limitations of the hardware at the time. The orchestrated version of One-Winged Angel is also fantastic, because again, an actual orchestra rather than a synthesised one has enhanced this great track. The sheer brilliance of Hamaguchi?s orchestrations always pulls the strongest emotions related to the game?s memory, as is seen in Aeris? Theme. This striking song for me has increased the brilliance of that certain scene, and truly captures the moment in time. For me, orchestrated versions of Uematsu?s work always allow me to remember the title well, and none can do it more than this track, brilliance at its finest.

 factoids
  • Inside the cover, there is a funny illustration by Tetsuya Nomura with Aeris, Uematsu (who even has 'U E' on his t-shirt!), Cloud & Tifa. It's drawn like a child's attempt at a picture and has a equally childish version of the FFVII logo. Quaint. (Nephtis)
  • Contribute an interesting (and true!) factoid.
