My Favorite Video Game Music, #21: You Can Hear The Cry Of The Planet

#21: You Can Hear The Cry Of The Planet
Final Fantasy VII

Mysterious. Otherworldly. Exotic. Creepy. Forlorn.

This track hit the bulls-eye. By which I mean, if you try to think of what the soundtrack to a semi-alien and long-deserted capital of a long-extinct culture called the Forgotten City should sound like, it sounds exactly like this. Bulls-eye.

In general I did not find Final Fantasy VII's soundtrack overwhelming; it's right about on par with Final Fantasy VI's, which is to say good but not Chrono Trigger good. But one thing Final Fantasy VII does do, several times, is really nail the perfect music for the moment. This would be one of the most notable of those times.
