3 stars This album although not as quite as solid as the first album contains some gems. The two final fantasy 4 songs Zeromus and Battle With The Four Fiends are definitely the best tracks on this album and well worth listening to regardless if you enjoy video games or not. I never completed FF 3(japanese 3), 9 or 10 so I didn't really try so hard to get into those songs. The FF 8 songs left alot to be desired because both of those songs are really nice in the OST. The over-the-top cheese that came from Maybe I'm A Lion is the worst part of the album. I just can't get over the completely unnecessary interjection that comes in 10 seconds when the song begins.
