Star Ocean: Till the End of Time 
Original Soundtrack Volume 1

Star Ocean 3 brings with its epic endeavour an equally epic soundtrack: composed by the same Sakuraba responsible for its previous incarnations' soundtracks, as well as the excellent strategy RPG Valkyrie Profile's music, Star Ocean 3: Till the End of Time comes in two volumes, this being the first. In an obvious attempt to equal the hype surrounding Xenosaga: Episode 1's use of the London Philharmonic Orchestra in its soundtrack, Star Ocean dedicates this entire first set of discs to the classical, orchestrated tracks used in the game, and the difference in quality over the murky themes from Star Ocean: The Second Story, along with the questionable sampling, makes for a refreshing chance that can only be encouraged for a composer so renowned for his electronica styled music. Give it a listen.
