This is a remix/recomposition of Balamb Garden - Final Fantasy 8

Tried to keep this very peacefully and ambient, wanted to also try keep the ethnic feel of the original that when heard makes you feel like you're act Balamb garden.

This is the last of tracks! 10/10 album =D May do more in future but really want to move onto something new.

One thing that I always enjoyed about VIII is just how lovely the music is, and you've captured it perfectly. I remember running around Balamb Garden when I first played it just enjoying the whole atmosphere and how much I wished schools really were like that with such relaxing songs playing.

i'm falling asleep...

And i'm loving this song for it. Not many songs are capable of pulling my so deeply into the melody of it that they make me lose my grip on reality. Though i suppose my i don't really have a firm grip on reality in the first place :P

You may have been a bit to forceful with the background in the beginning though, but either way, this still earns 5/5 10/10 and download.

Ahh, not to mention the nostalgia of it all. I think i may re-download the game from the PlayStation store one more time now.


Thank you for composing this very nice rendition of Balamb Garden. I have listened to the original version so often when I was in a mood for staring out my window and daydreaming about being in a university like Balamb Garden. You have a great taste in music and I enjoy all the songs you make.

In fact this is the first time I logged in to Newgrounds for years. I couldn't sit back and not give you good feedback for this. 5/5 and 10/10

hah really? years :O glad to pull someone back on!


Again nice FF8 music.
I think the backround music shoulda be a bit drowned down in the beginning.

Nice job !

I really like your version of this song, it sounds really good. keep up the good work.
