Sounds pretty good. I admit I haven't ever actually listened to TBM despite being a big Final Fantasy fan - is it easy to get ahold of their stuff, and is it worth it?

The first CD is definitely worth it. I haven't heard the second one yet, though.

BLACK MAGES 3!!



Keeping my eye on this. Was hoping another would come around.

Also if they EVER do an actual PS3 FFVII remake like everyone clamors about all the time, they've gotta use the Black mage versions of the different battle themes. Seriously, the Jenova and Those who fight further covers are great.

That was pretty awesome. Am excite!

I want them to do Legendary Beast so bad.

God me, too. I love that song. I hate how in FF8 there is only one time you hear that song, and you only hear like 30 seconds of it.

The one song I'd love to hear them do is Don't Be Afraid from FFVIII, that's one of my favorite Uematsu songs of all time and it's ripe for a rock makeover

Also they should do some Sakimoto songs because his songs are better anyway

Nice synth, horrible guitar.

TBM is mostly awful, I think. I hate how they mess up good compositions by turning them into guitar wankery.

Pfft. The Skies Above was just as good as the first, if not better.

Bring on ze third!

Agreed. I would say the second took a bit more getting used to, however, since not many of the tracks were "battle music" per se. Still, Vamo' Alla Flamenco was frickin' awesome.

Do want!

Hush you!

will gently cradle you as time slowly ticks away.
If they reduce the amount of rock organ and ill-inspired vocals it's a day one purchase for me.

Why in the hell they thought that new rendition of Otherworld was a good idea I'll never know.

Fuck yes. Better than the first two albums put together.

Edit; FFIX Boss Battle too? Omg yes I was hoping this would get noticed.
 
Three last boss themes though, which is interesting.

Already hearing bits of this album I hope it isn't the end, and I hope they extend out of FF into some of Nobuo's other stuff (Lost Odyssey in particular) seeing as Square owns the songs but not the band, and all TBM does is pay royalties to cover the songs.
 
I want a TBM version of Brawl's Main Theme.
(what I really want is Final Destination, but I think Sakuraba's involvement makes it even less likely :( )

Today is the day in Japan. Mine has shipped from Play-Asia today. Any J-Gaffers getting it?
What the.

REVIEWS!

EDIT: Just listened to the clips. So far so good, though Grand Cross doesn't sound like anything special... I couldn't even make a difference from the original song.

I heard it. I don't think it's very good. In fact, I think it's the worst of the three. A few good tracks, but overall, not much there in terms of variety.
