The translation on #7 is almost certainly wrong. "消えぬ" is a negative conjugation. The "えぬ" ending means "unable to". It's a little archaic sounding perhaps, but it should be "Unerasable" instead of "Dissipating," which implies the opposite. Note the translation on "Two Unstealable Hearts", which uses the same "ぬ".

Just to point out, many older rps such as FF9 (main and related albums) have ancient translations with lots of mistakes. Maybe we should recheck them someday, but I'm not sure how people will feel about changing these well known names.

You could just use the official iTunes translations, as lame as they are.

That might be okay. Similarly, "Sleepless City Treno" is actually "Unsleeping City Treno". Whoever translated the name of this one and "Unerasable Sorrow" mixed the conjugations up. It's not as if they have insomnia or anything...
