So lately (as in the last couple of years), I’ve been listening to albums from OCRemix because what is money and how do I get some? Also, because the nostalgia trip is fun. And thus, my first recommendation, for people who haven’t heard it: the FF6 album! Found here: http://ocremix.org/album/46/final-fantasy-vi-balance-and-ruin
It’s four discs of remixed FFVI music. The music is solid; they got this thing Kickstarted awhile back and each track is well put together. Some of it’s definitely leaning hard on the remix side, which can be a your mileage may vary thing for some tracks. However, altogether, it holds up. The highlights for me include:
- The very techno-y rendition of The Returners theme.
- The lounge singer remix of Setzer’s theme.
- The last dungeon’s theme remixed as a march.
- Shadow’s theme, Wild West style.
- The rock opera version of the opera song.
Best of all, it’s free. It’s worth a listen for sure.
