One of the best videogame soundtracks I've ever heard. Every tune is incredible, and I often find myself humming various songs even when not listening to the CD or playing the game. A must-have for fans of the game, as well as fans of game soundtracks in general.

After 20 years of composing Video Game music, Nobuo uematsu reach its apotheosis with Lost Odyssey. This soundtrack is absolutly beautiful, and its main theme is simply one of the best piece of music ever made. Must buy if you enjoy Uematsu's work !
I've never bought a Uematsu OST, not because I didn't like them but because there wasn't in my opinion any OST where all the tracks were beautiful equally, but this one is the exception. If you've played the game, I don't need to say much more, but if you haven't, I can't recommend this OST and game enough!
This is a fine set of musical scores, few of which are lackluster, nearly all fully capable of bringing the listener to the frame of mind the composer set out for and a fair number of which are quite excellent. What is also a very nice touch is that even though it sports over fifty tracks you don't see more that three of which being under a minute long, unlike a few other game soundtracks out there. And, to its credit, the album itself covers a wide range of moods, and nails them quite well, offering more longevity than what one might expect.
It only has two real faults as an album: are that the tracks which are meant to be set to an indefinite loop (i.e. the song used in game when selecting areas to move to) diminish in volume just as early as the rest (at ten seconds to the end of the song it starts the diminish, by five it is silence--even on the three compositions lasting less than a minute), which goes against their purpose; and, secondly, that the transitions in mood between individual songs is highly erratic and leaves the listener wondering whether or not many of these individually good to great songs weren't just slotted at random. And, as one could imagine, both slights are just that, with one being completely circumventable if one puts it into another device besides a common CD player to listen to it off of.
The Lost Odyssey soundtrack is another great soundtrack from Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu. It is hard to accurately describe the sound. After listening to previews, I'm sure you will agree that this is a must have soundtrack for Uematsu fans and lovers of beautiful music.
It has a very diverse, mostly instrumental track as you'd expect from a game ost. Many of the songs are either very catch or packed full of one emotion or another. You can definitely tell the artist put his heart into it. Not a bad buy for 40 dollars . My recommended songs to sample with the prefix of " Lost Odyssey ost " on youtube are :
" Parting Forever "
" Battle Conditions "
" Never Ending Journey "
" Epsylon Range "
This should give you a good idea of the kind of music thats on this CD. Hope you enjoy it.
