> It's not too often you see a rearranged album for videogame music (at
least not in my experience). As a result, I jumped on this CD as
soon as I found out about it (years ago). I had no idea what to expect,
but was pleasantly surprised to see that Motoi Sakuraba did
track one. After all, he's been involved in many RPG soundtracks,
including the ever-excellent Shining
> I'm happy to report that most of what's on this album is worthy. This
album's futuristic flare and techno beats are prevalent throughout.
My favorite arrangements are track 1 by Motoi Sakuraba, track
3 by Motoaki Furukawa, track 4 by Shinji Hosoe,
and track 10 by Makoto Asai. If you liked the original
soundtrack, you're likely to appreciate this CD as well.
> This PSOeI&II Premium Arrange album doesn't superceed
the original recordings, but it does expand on your affinity. I'd
recommend this to fans of Phantasy
Star Online and collectors alike. It could've had more
songs, but it's a decent value anyway.
