Yasunori Shiono, from Lufia 1&2 - it might be all he's done, but it's enough.

you only know him from Lufia 1 & 2? he also worked on (as co-composer)  Chaos Seed, Energy Breaker, CIMA: The Enemy and Lufia GBC.

-I generally like Wild Arms music when she's doing it. A lot.

Aw, crap. Now I feel like a jerk for forgetting her.

Heh, got that right; Wild Arms 3 and Wild Arms 4 are definitely TWO of my MOST favorite soundtracks EVAR to date. They were practically the only soundtracks I listened to this past Summer; they're good for everything!

For me, Summer 2007 was the Summer of Gust (Ar-Tonelico and Atelier Iris), and Summer 2008 was the Summer of Wild Arms.

I generally lost interest in WA music with WA3 and beyond; things got way too advanced and big with her sound IMO. WA:ACF was a good enough deversion from where her style was going even though many tracks tried to be a lot more than what they were. XF really surprised me though, and if I'd had heard it back in 2007 I would have talked it up in the best of the year topic that year.

That really gets my goat how I usually hear things way beyond when they come out and can't really add much to those conversations.

The artist descriptions were pretty poor, but aside from that, I'd consider this list very good. Shoji Meguro and Ishimoto might be strange choices, but it was nice to add a composer not from Square. Personally, I was kinda shocked to see Mitsuda 2nd, as I would expect them to place him first as a fan-service, and Uematsu second. Koichi was nice to see, but I would've placed Sakimoto above him. I also think it is quite fair to make the list Square-dominated. Square is dominating, at least from a western view-point. My list would've been very similar.

I think it is one of you that works for IGN in secret. Or perhaps a *gasp* GFF'er??!! yikes

Just curious, why do you regard Shoji Meguro as a strange choice? If we disregard subjective personal opinion and look to more "objective" criteria, he's been around for 13 years and he's done a lot of RPG music, as well as being the main composer of one of the biggest Japanese RPG-series (Megami Tensei). Personally I think he fits on such a list, regardless of what one thinks of his music (for example, I'm definitely not a big fan of Kouichi Sugiyama, but I can definitely see why he's included here).

Nnnnnoooooo, I would say putting Uematsu first and Mitsuda second is EXACTLY what fans would expect.

No need to apologize. smile Its just that Meguro's been very much near the center of the scene for the last five years or so, so including him on such a list isn't that much of a stretch.

I'd have put Hirota on that list, but then again, I've been on a Shadow Hearts fix the last little while.
