The house on the cover is actually where he and his family lived during the first year of his life. He is not fluent in German mostly because his family came back to Japan when he was 1 years old. tongue

Strictly speaking,  that is the neighbor house that he photed from within the house where his parents had lived in. FYI, what he intended to take picture of is actually the garden, which is the theme of this album (you can see it from the track names too).

Are we going to see this album sampled in RPG Fan's soundtrack section?

I wasn't actually expecting a piano album.. neutral So in that sense I'm a little disappointed.

Has anyone else actually heard the album yet?  I'm into my second listen and I'm very impressed.  He seems to have gone back to his SF2 days (yay!!) and the arrangements of his other works are a nice touch.  A "must hear" all around.

I like it; it's a little short, imo, but maybe that is because I have been listening to a lot of classical music CDs that are 74 minutes in length of late!

Some of the songs don't stand out, but some of them do--I'm not entirely sure what is original and what isn't, so I can't make the divide there.  I think it will grow on me nicely.

Hamauzu's about the only game arrange pianist I listen to at all. Maybe the FFX Piano Collections were a little weak in comparison to his other works, but it definitely ranks up there in game piano arrange albums overall, and his SaGa Frontier II Piano Pieces, I believe, are the tip of the crest.

I'm sure there are other game piano arranges I like, but none come to mind right now.
