Nobuo Uematsu's music is the shit on a piano.


Keepin it real

Not everything has to be up beat and crazy hardcore. This is nice. I love it.
FF7 shouldnt be the only game to get its battle music on the piano :)
Can you do bahamuts theme on the piano? That would be awesome.

People ought to give more credit for this.

Of course it's the boss battle theme which you have probably figured out by now, but it's amazing. Most piano music here in new grounds is a clusterfuck of ugly, but this is simply beautiful.

No retarded flashyloops synths, no annoying WHAAWHAAA or with a gajillion electric guitars that your eardrums explode, or crappy NES-remixes that use more than five channels. This is just pure piano, and it makes me happy on the inside.

Cool song but...

This song is the Boss Battle theme, not the Normal Battle theme.
Overall, good song.

Very nice

I do like this one very much. But just to assist, it tends to sound very abrupt. (1:30-2:00 min marker is a good example) You can make an actual piano keep that note longer (I'm afraid Piano isn't my strong point, so technical terms are not available) but a bit of a lingering note would help eat up that dead half second between major chords. (I really hope you get my drift cause I'm horrible with the terminology).

People find this review helpful!

I know I'm a year too late...

and I do love FFVIII, especially it's songs... so I honestly didn't think it was that bad, in fact, this brings me too want to pick back up the controller and play from beginning to end again...I wish that I could find an online radio streamer or hoster that would broadcast your works. Or even better finding an online radio station to broadcast it for ya. Anyway, I hope you come back, with more awsome tracks, but I doon't believe that's likely.....
