Final Fantasy Vocal Collection is music to my ears

I was one of the unfortunately masses who happened to miss my chance to purchase the amazing Final Fantasy Vinyls set. Like many of fans of the series' amazing music, I was totally bummed out. Things aren't all bleak for us video game music lovers, Square Enix has just released a CD of the Final Fantasy Vocal Collection in Japan.

The ten track CD features some the best nostalgia inducing vocal tracks from the series, including my absolute favorite, Uematsu's Suteki da Ne --which features the heart tugging vocal work of RIKKI. Fan favorites like Faye Wong's Eyes on Me, and Final Fantasy IX's Melodies of Life are also included. A nice bonus of the new track, Answers from the upcoming Final Fantasy XIV: A Real Reborn is also on the disc.

I had a chance to catch Distant Worlds when it swung by Chicago earlier this year, and seeing Answers live was quite moving. I however, am a bit perplexed by the omission of Koda Kumi's contributions to Final Fantasy X-2, but it could be an issue of licensing such popular songs. The CD can still be picked up at various Japanese retailers, and should set you back around ¥3,150. This one isn't coming out of the car's CD changer for a long time.
