Where's Zane? I figured he be all over this!

I am here, and I am pretty damn excited. Hopefully Hamauzu will do some arrangements of his more abstract stuff from those albums... only time will tell (or a tracklist from PV/Harry).

The big question, of course, is if this album will contain works in the vein of Good Hamauzu (SF2, US Disc 2, MSL) or Evil Hamauzu (US Disc 1, FF7 DOC).

Flip those. Electronica Hamauzu irritates me whereas orchestral Hamauzu thrills me. wink

Considering Hamauzu implies this album puts emphasis on piano and strings quartet, electronica pieces will sound different if they are included.

I'm curious about what else SE is going to publish as SE composer's best album series. I wish for Tanioka <3

I'm surprised you put FF7 DOC under Evil Hamauzu. ;-)
Did you check "DIRGE of CERBERUS: Final Fantasy VII MULTIPLAYER MODE Original Sound Collections" ? Some tracks in there are truly wonderful..

I'm talking specifically about released OSTs.  If that stuff's not on the OST, then I haven't heard it.

The description sounds like it's just a compilation

Don't trust CDJ's descriptions. They said Luminous Arc was a Mitsuda album, and that the FFXI box was being released with the acclaimed FFIX Piano Collections.

Some one updated the info on it a GMR:

"Solo feature album from Square Enix composer Masashi Hamauzu. Features entirely new compositions and new arrangements from previous works including Final Fantasy X, SaGa Frontier 2 and UNLIMITED: SaGa. All themes selected and produced by Hamauzu."

...droooooolllllll....

I agree that his SF2 stuff was legendary, but US Disc 1 has some merit in it.  IE "Theme of Laura" and "Solitude" being one my favourite pieces by him.

Hmm, I just heard elsewhere that Vielen Dank is going to be a mixture of both material from original soundtracks, along with arranged material, about half of the album for each. Truth?

Marcel May 26, 2007

Hey, you know, there are some samples up, and I think, they're pretty damn good at least.  Check them out, eh?

I think it's "original" material, NOT from games, but stuff Hamauzu's written for the sake of writing it. And then, alongside it, are NEW arrangements from his work w/ Square-Enix.

And I wouldn't be surprised if a) there was a bonus track from FF13 or b) one of his original compositions ends up in FF13.

Bernhardt May 27, 2007

Wow, Hamauzu sure seems to like the German language, eh?

Ramza May 28, 2007

It's funny, because *apparently* he can't really speak German, at least not fluently. But he was born in Germany. And, though the impressionist music style has roots in France, there was a German impressionist movement that, IMO, Hamauzu emulates perfectly.
