Sorry, what's the source for this? I don't see any official posts about this release on Square's Music account or in general.

I see it's popped up on CDJapan but I don't know much more than that. Seems to have come out of the left field!

Funny how we mentioned it in another thread a few days ago!

Square Enix's description says it mostly comprises cutscene music, as expected.

I'm not sure I handle any more music from this game. The soundtrack is already too big. I'll probably but it anyway though (haven't played the game yet). I'm more interested in the acoustic album though.

lol you should definitely play the game first, it was the main reason why I appreciated the OST so much. There were so many rearrangements that were left out from the OST that I'm assuming are gonna be in this FF7R Plus album, like the major key version of Anxiety or all the variations of the battle tracks that didn't get blended into the OST versions.

I hope they add some extended versions too of some of the OST tracks, though there's still so many tracks unaccounted for I doubt they'll have space.

Preordered! I can’t get over how massive FF7R’s soundtrack is. Even playing through the entire game I didn’t notice just how much unique music there was used throughout.

Is there any difference in the "Jenova - Quickening" track here and the one on the first soundtrack?

They seem to be identical. They have the exact same length and when I listen to both back to back, even skipping around to random parts of each file, there doesn't seem to be any variation. If there's any difference at all, the one on the OST Plus is probably mastered slightly differently to conform to overall flow and loudness of the rest of the album.

"Airbuster" seems to be the same on both albums too.

Maybe they just added some of the more popular tracks from the OST in order to fill the discs up and provide them for people who didn't buy the OST but bought the OST Plus. Not sure why else they would include them.

So, basically, this looks like our traditional 4-disc soundtrack like it has always been since Final Fantasy VII and onward (not counting recent installments like FFXIV with multiple albums or blu-ray releases). Another touch of nostalgia, at least for me didn't get a chance to listen to it yet tho.

The Following tracks appear to be near-exact duplicates from the first soundtrack and have identical audio signatures (same AcoustIDs):
  • Let the Battles Begin! - A Merc's Job
  • The Airbuster
  • Infinity's End
  • The Valkyrie
  • J-E-N-O-V-A - Quickening
  • Rufus Shinra
  • The Arsenal

Did they include arranger breakdowns in the liner notes again? I suspect most of them can be guessed based on the full OST but it's always nice to have.

Yes, it has full credits. I haven’t added any images from the booklet because the pages are super glossy. Since I use a camera, not a scanner, I just leave products like this for someone who can get a cleaner image. I did add some images of the discs though.

And do both "Midgar Expressway" from the first soundtrack and "Midgar Expressway - Long Ver." from this soundtrack appear in the game separately, or was the first one just a shaving down of the track?

The original one just has some parts taken out compared to the long version.

I'm the kind of nerd who'll go through and see what's different, so I loaded them up, converted them to mono, panned one hard right and the other hard left, then did whatever edits I needed to make them match up.

Spoiler:


The standard version has a little bit of a riser effect to transition into the cuts. The mixing seems a little different between both versions, too, with the drums being a little more prominent in the long version.

EDIT: Just did the same comparison with Airbuster and Jenova Quickening. They're completely identical as far as I can tell.

Thanks, but I assumed the shorter and longer versions of "Midgar Expressway" were different. My question was if both appear in the game separately or if there's just the complete version.

Neither. The game uses dynamic music, so it has separate parts that loop until you reach a certain milestone. The soundtrack cuts compile and arrange these pieces together so they flow smoothly from one part to the next.

Thanks for the scans/arranger credits.

However, I noticed a few mistakes, where you listed wrong credits (1-07/08 and 2-05 were arranged my Mitsuto, not Yoshitaka Suzuki according to the scans). And so, Mitsuto Suzuki is missing from the arranger credits on the main credits section above.

Ah, good catch. I accidentally merged the two when transcribing.

Fixed the notes & credits. Please ping me if you notice any other mistakes.

Disc 4, Track 8 - The Black Tattoo is 53:89 Seconds on my EAC Rip; I was wondering how the disc was over 80 minutes, so that track time will need to be corrected.

Does anyone else have a weird authoring issue on Disc 3 - Track 6 (Emergency Stairwell) from 2:46 onwards (until the end at 6:52)? Sounds like there's a randomized flanger and a band pass affecting the second half of the song making it unlistenable. The transition from the first half to the second half is very abrupt as well.

Or am I not getting something and is it supposed to sound like this?

It is supposed to sound like this. It's the music for the infamous stairs climbing sequence, and as the characters are getting more and more exhausted, the music itself starts sounding warped:

Ah, I did play it by going with the stairs but I don't remember it being like this at all. Thanks!
