The really neat thing about this soundtrack, to me anyway, is that I can really get into it and I have yet to play the game.

If Square does have competition within its own releases, this soundtrack would have definitely been a competitor with other late releases like Treasure Hunter G, Rudra no Hihou, and the like. And this soundtrack stands up to the competition. The synth quality is definitely up to par with what it should be, and many people exclaim this to be some of Ito's finest work (I will also agree with this statement). Some of my favorite tracks on this OSV come from disc 3, and then the character themes on disc 1 are good too.

The real reason this soundtrack is so good is because it is above expectation. I don't know about all of you out there, but I did not have the highest expectations in the world for this soundtrack when I purchased it. I came out liking it a lot, and I listen to it frequently. The only thing Ito's done better than this is probably the arranged soundtrack to this game: "Windy Tale".

So you wanna get into the Romancing SaGa scene and buy this soundtrack? Well, it's not that easy. Everything pre-SaGa-Frontier in the SaGa series is a pretty hard find. Luckily, NTT's 2004 reprint should be available at many online outlets.
