Added a bunch of missing artists (for the track by ayaka specifically).

Default Music on this Album

Is it just me, or is "The Price of Freedom" a really really good piece of music? The opening with the violin and what sounds like an acoustic guitar really is quite melancholy and emotional.

"The World's Enemy" takes a different approach to that legendary piece of music from Final Fantasy VII. Awesome.

Certainly not just you - I waxed lyrical about it too (and rambled on about other stuff), albeit on his artist forum thread instead: http://vgmdb.net/forums/showthread.php?t=9707

I haven't played the game yet but when I listen to this song, I imagine someone being forced to fight his best friend, even though he doesn't want to. Just like Rockman, who doesn't really want to fight but feels it is his duty to do so. Some people might call this "emo" behaviour but eh. Emotional situations call for emotional songs.
By the way, for those of you who are guitar players, is that the pentatonic minor scale at 1:00 onward?

I think since the '90s that's been called the Noel Gallagher scale

Hi layzee,

Thanks for your message. I haven't come across Takeharu Ishimoto's name before, so I'm glad that you dropped it here (I read your post on his artist forum thread). I didn't realize that he really has made significant contributions to both Square Enix and Final Fantasy games, particularly the Dissidia series.

I like the Dissidia soundtracks because I consider them to have different versions of Final Fantasy OST fan-favorite pieces of music. We have Distant Worlds and Game Concerts (full classical music orchestra), A New World (chamber classical music orchestra), The Black Mages and Earthbound Papas (rock band), BRA★BRA FINAL FANTASY BRASS de BRAVO (concert band/wind orchestra), Piano Collections/Opera (solo piano), SQUARE ENIX JAZZ -FINAL FANTASY- coming out on November 22, 2017 (jazz), and of course, the Dissidia series (rearrangements), including the new Arcade album releases (two of them as of now, I don't know if Dissidia Final Fantasy NT will get another soundtrack release).

"The Price of Freedom" got my attention when I heard it during a cutscene in Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core. After this piece plays, another piece of music plays in the rock-style genre with the electric guitar and drums (I haven't identified its name yet), then an excerpt from Final Fantasy VII's legendary song follows (avoiding its name to prevent spoilers, just in case). Well done.

According to the data SQEX gave to mora, Uematsu composed 1.23 空色の瞳 rather than Ishimoto. I assume based on https://finalfantasy.fandom.com/wiki...ice_of_Freedom that that has to be a mistake?

Maybe SQEX meant track 2.23? That track contains the Main Theme of Final Fantasy VII, Shinra, Let the Battles Begin, and Aerith's Theme, but Nobuo Uematsu isn't credited...
