Best of FF7

The second-best bargain in the FF collection (behind the arranged "20020220"), this single disc set is effectively a "best of" from the FF7 soundtrack. If most of it sounds like MIDI, that's because it is - Uematsu's music, originally hemmed in by the limitations of the Nintendo and PlayStation music synthesizers, emphasizes melody over timbre, and the result is hooks you'll find yourself whistling or humming when you least expect it. This collection wisely focuses on musical value to the exclusion of plot - themes for main characters like Cloud and Tifa are absent - focusing on memorable "field screen" and battle themes. It concludes with the series' first orchestral arrangements, notably "One Winged Angel" (the apocalyptic theme for the final battle with Sephiroth) and the beloved ballad "Aeris' Theme".

Masterful Composer

In my opinion, Nobuo Uematsu is one of the best modern composers, period, and this wonderful soundtrack presents this case wonderfully. With the subtle nuances that he presents in Aerith's Theme, the overt power in J-E-N-O-V-A, or the zany sounds of Electric Chocobo, this collection has something for everyone. Purchase this CD and you won't regret it!

Haven't played the game yet, but this music is just incredible! It's waaaay better than most movie soundtracks I've heard. The best songs are One Winged Angel and J-e-n-o-v-a. Buy this Album!!!
