Fanfare Overture

I'm back and with four three new albums.

First, it's the Sid Meier's Civilization V Original Soundtrack with music from Michael Curran and Geoff Knorr performed by the Filmharmonic Orchestra Prague.

Next, it's a trip down memory lane with the Square Enix Battle Tracks Vol.2 and Square Enix Battle Tracks Vol.3. Listen to some classic battle themes from some of your favorite games and composers: Nobuo Uematsu, Kenji Ito, Yasunori Mitsuda, Yoko Shimomura, and more!

Finally, it's Symphonic Fantasies - music from SQUARE ENIX. A concert from last year with some amazing arrangements performed by the WDR Rundfunkorchester Köln and WDR Rundfunkchor Köln from Kingdom Hearts, Secret of Mana, Chrono Trigger/Cross, and Final Fantasy.

9/25/2010 Update
: Fixed the m3u and track 6 on Battle Tracks Vol. 2. You can find the update here.

On Battle Tracks Vol. 2, Final Fantasy is misspelled "Final Fanatsy"

Whut.

Ugh, more Square circlejerking.

Thank you for this! Haven't heard of Symphonic Fantasies but the filenames alone give me goosebumps. Can't wait to listen to it. Everything with Secret of Mana or Chrono Trigger written on it gets a plus in my book.

@Gmastershief: I haven't played Reach beacuse I find the games atrociously boring but I have to admit that the soundtracks are pretty good, especially ODST. However, I still think that the Halo main theme is incredibly overrated.

Thanks for the upload. Though the playlists need some editing as the names of the actual files don't align with their names in the playlist.

Did anyone know where the lyrics on the final fantasy theme can be found ? I mean for he first part.
(if possible, with sheets ?)

Anyway, thanks for this excellent job only you can do.

Sorry for the double post but...
for the everything part could be better than just the first part.

The symphonic is amazing. Hearing Secret of Mana and Chrono Trigger/Cross songs re arranged live was amazing, and another excellent FF live performance as well.

Thanks a lot!

Thank you for the Symphonic Fantasies. Didn't think I'd be able to find it on the net.

Yet another fantastic release! I have been looking forward to this Symphonic Fantasies album for quite some time. It will be nice to finally be able to listen to it. And Civilization IV had some amazing tunes, so I hope Civilization V won't disappoint either :)

As for the Battle Tracks, they will be interesting, and I hope they've chosen great ones. And knowing SQUARE ENIX, I believe they have.

Thank you as always!

I'm dissapointed with the Civ V album. Civ IV had some amazing tunes and this one had just normal run-of-the-mill tune. T.T

I fucked up to the Civ V soundtrack tracklist and the m3u for Battle Tracks so expect fixes for those in the next release.

Symphonic Fantasies is pretty bitchin'.

comment #29

Civ V is just a mishmash of classical music and other familiar themes. It would be a lot more interesting if the composers wrote new themes instead.

I uploaded the Medley track on my web space if anyone want it (a shame that it was not on the album). It contains Destati, Lavos' Theme etc...

The thought of listening to any remix of Chrono Cross music makes me want to puke. I hate that game and everything about it more than ABC, FOX, and NBC hate good programming.

I will say this for Square Enix, though: they picked a pretty awesome cover for volume 3. The only thing that would top it is an album of Nintendo themes with the classic NES controller. That or Mario fisting Luigi's peach.

Thanks for sharing.

Why have you issued the fix for "Einhänder"?

Square themselves are using umlauts for it.

Hans: Accents cause our files to fail sometimes. We remove them whenever they cause issues with other files (m3u or sfv).
