Nobuo Uematsu is great

Has anyone ever noticed how brilliant the Final Fantasy soundtracks are? Anyone who can compose great tunes and keep them sounding awesome through a 16-bit MIDI synth is really a genius. I particularly like the way that "One Winged Angel" from FF7 not only appeals to my liking for massively epic fight backgrounds, but also my weak spot for gothic chanting in a stagnant classical language. It doesn't get much better than this! Until you see that Uematsu is also in a rock band and plays these tracks live as well!

On a more serious note, it's been a good day for work. Tomorrow will also be a good day for work, I hope! Lots of writing to be done, lots of images to be drawn....
