Called by Uematsu his "greatest harvest" in terms of creativity, the soundtrack, despite its length, was composed in a period of eight months, as opposed to the bi-annual period of producing that had become the standard regarding the previous original soundtracks. The Final Fantasy VII soundtrack was innovative in that it was the first game in the series to include a track with digitized vocals, "One-Winged Angel", which has been described as Uematsu's "most recognizable contribution" to the music of the Final Fantasy series.
The Compilation of Final Fantasy VII greatly expands the body of musical works of the Final Fantasy VII universe. Nevertheless, the most popular themes among fans remain a part of the original soundtrack, which include "Prelude", "Those Who Fight", "Fight On!", "J-E-N-O-V-A", "Cosmo Canyon", and the previously mentioned "One-Winged Angel".
Chrono Symphonic: A Cinematic Interpretation is an album of 25 songs, orchestral "rearrangements" of the music from the classic video game Chrono Trigger for the SNES. Chrono Symphonic is a non-profit collaboration of musicians and lovers of Chrono Trigger, the soundtrack of which having originally been composed by Yasunori Mitsuda, Nobuo Uematsu and Noriko Matsueda. The double disc album has each disc named after a pairing of elements, Fire/Light and Shadow\Ice. Inspired by a fan-made Chrono Trigger movie script by Andrew Triplett, the project marks OverClocked ReMix's first foray into amateur film scoring. Though almost completely digital, the album was intended to sound like a movie score. The convolution-based reverb settings used to simulate a live environment were that of the 700-seat Promenadikeskus Concert Hall in Pori, Finland. More information about the concert hall and its impulse responses is available on the Helsinki University of Technology web site (see external links).
Chrono Tied is a 2009 mashup album produced by DJ Nerd42 that puts the vocals from Fort Minor's 2005 album "The Rising Tied" over beats created by sampling the Chrono Trigger original soundtrack. (1995) After a three year development cycle, this project features over an hour of music. It has several original sample-based beats, but nine of the tracks on Chrono Tied are based on instrumentals from "The Chrono Trigger Mixtape" by Compromised. All tracks on the album were produced by DJ Nerd42 except track 20 which is a remix by Theory.
Chrono Trigger, published by Square in 1995, is the single best game ever released for the Super Nintendo (SNES) and also has one of the best, if not THE best video game soundtrack(s) of all time. Yasunori Mitsuda composed all the original Chrono Trigger tracks sampled here, except that Nobuo Uematsu composed "Underground Waterway" (can also be translated as "Sewer") and "Tyran Castle." (Which are here sampled in "Petrified in the Underground Sewer" and "Tyran in Stereo.")
