Chocobo no Fushigina Dungeon: Original Soundtrack summary

Masashi Hamauzu is easily becoming one of my favorite Square composers, and is really putting Square's sound team in a fantastic position. Go back an entire 5 years before he wow-ed us with his work on Final Fantasy X and Unlimited SaGa and you find the brilliant gem that is the Chocobo no Fushigina Dungeon Original Soundtrack. From what I've heard, the game itself is horrible - and never did get released here in the United States (while Chocobo Dungeon 2 did.) You'll even find the now famous Chocobo tune reiterated yet again on this album, but as usual, taking on an even newer sound with the help of an entire orchestra on the album's Prelude track. It should be noted that the two orchestrated tracks were conducted by Koji Hajima. Once again, another game soundtrack you can play from start to finish even if you haven't played the game.

Sailing to the World summary

So what do you do if you are a world-renowned videogame composer and some of your work was done for a game only released in Taiwan? It's simple; you create your own music label, put on a Santa hat, and deliver! That is what Yasunori Mitsuda does with "Sailing to the World," a mini-album, highlighting ten of his favorite tracks from the Taiwanese-based RPG "The Seventh Seal" and released on Christmas Day of 2002. Featuring Mitsuda's familiar atmospheres and friendly harmonies, "Sailing to the World" also includes two songs featuring the vocals of artist Koko Komine and guitar arrangement from Tomohiko Kira. Clocking in at just over 36 minutes, the album provides an easy and fulfilling experience.
