Final Fantasy VIII

This week’s featured soundtrack is from Final Fantasy VIII.

The eighth main game in the Final Fantasy series follows protagonist Squall Leonhart on an epic journey as SeeD mercenaries to defeat sorceress Ultimecia.

From legendary composer Nobuo Uematsu, the Final Fantasy VIII soundtrack continued in the tradition of gorgeous, engrossing music that encompasses areas and events in a game in the most memorable of ways. From the cool, seaside vibes of Breezy, to the intense furor of Liberi Fatali, to the calm beauty of Eyes on Me, this soundtrack exceeds what I’d consider “excellence” in just about every respect.

As a bonus, here’s my favorite remix of Eyes on Me:

Eyes on Me by Faye Wong (Almighty Mix)
