This guy is a compositional fucking genius.

I bow to his musical power.

He also seems so polite and down to earth. I don't mean that in a stereotypical fake-politeness for societal convention japanese-way that we see sometimes but just a genuinely nice guy. Its cool to hear that there are going to be 70-80 tracks because this at least to me feels like we won't be hearing the same music over and over again.

If this same interview was with Usher or Jay-Z, he'd keep grabbing his crotch and making arm movements to show his bling bling watch and talk about how its all about his music and how he gets his inspiration form blah blah blahd and what a musical genius he is.

Well at least even if the rest of the game completely blows it'll have good music.

Totally. Music is one of the best elements in any FF game. Even if I hate the story or characters, the music just instantly turns my pants to cream.

Bloody hell.. that Susan Calloway has the musical voice of a mythical goddess... it's a crime that I haven't heard of her until today.

People may be divided about the game, but I think everyone should probably at least pick up the soundtrack, cause Uematsu really is just that brilliant. An amazing composer in any medium, and one of the best for video games bar none.

Ah yes, Uematsu-sensei is back. How I miss his beautiful works. FF XII and FF XIII music was totally bland without him. It may be good for other JRPG titles but certainly not up to FF standard built by Uematsu-sensei.

Mr. Uematsu is a brilliant musician. When I learned that he was scoring FF XIV, I was very happy to hear it. It's great to see him working on a Final Fantasy game once again.

Will probably not be buying FF XIV, but will definetly be buying the soundtrack. Good modern composers are hard to find, or as brilliant. If you've ever listened to the soundtrack of FF X (To Zanarkand being my favorite), or FF VII : Advent Children (beautiful rifts), know how much emotion he can put in a score. Just bloody brilliant.
