Nobuo truly is the god of music. I only just recently heard this soundtrack and I am impressed. You may think I'm crazy, what with the primitive sound system, but the compositions are truly wonderful. I guess it's when you listen to the arranged version of these songs, and then hear them in a different format is what makes it so cool. "Matoya", "The Rebel Army", "Finale" and the Main Themes 1 and 2 are all awesome.
The best reason to buy this CD, however, is for the arranged tracks, "Welcome to FF World" and "Farewell! FF World". These are superb remixes of some of the music found in the game. I was extremely impressed with Matoya in "Welcome to FF World", and Finale in "Farewell! FF World". These are the best versions I've ever heard of these songs, right after Pray and Love Will Grow. This is how arrangements should be done. The quality on these songs are excellent, and I'd buy the soundtrack for them alone.
