葉加瀬太郎の5年振り以上となるシングルは、PS2ゲーム「ファイナルファンタジーXII」のメイン・テーマに決定!! 全世界で発売される為、共通のテーマ曲で統一するというシリーズ初の試みに、葉加瀬太郎に白羽の矢が立ち、本作が完成!! 「エトピリカ」「情熱大陸」に続く代表曲になるであろう1曲。9分弱の尺に凝縮された物語性を帯びたロンドン・フィルとの競演はゲームファンに圧倒的な感動を与える仕上がり。葉加瀬太郎ファンにとっても一番好きな葉加瀬太郎のエレメントが感じとれる作品。DVDには、ゲーム・キャラの動画メインのCLIPを収録予定。特殊パッケージ(ファイナルファンタジーキャラクター絵柄)仕様。

        A Total Must Buy - Along with FFXII 5

        When I ordered FFXII First Press Edition I had ordered this CD along as well. Shipping is fast and easy and the processing is easy as well I haven't had a problem with CDJapan. Great addition to my Final Fantasy Collection

        Nice 4

        I already had the FFXII soundtrack, but wanted to pick this up anyway. I like it on this cd, much easier to tell the difference in the movements. Very nice, comforting music.

        Taro Hakase Does It Again 5

        Taro Hakase does it again with this exquisite piece of work worthy of the name "Final Fantasy." The album is indeed a symphonic poem, meant to be felt and experienced as well as heard. In addition, the bonus DVD offered with this item for an additional five dollars is completely worth it. The disc offers a short but beautiful compilation of FMV sequences and in-game scenes from Final Fantasy XII sure to make any collector giddy.
