Finn says, "JRPG’s are known for having amazing soundtracks so I decided to set myself the tough task of ranking the 5 best soundtracks in JRPG history."
Parasite Eve should be on the list because its soundtrack was awesome but agree that Xenoblade soundtrack was beautiful.
Parasite eve, Xenosaga E2, FFX, KH2, radiata stories, Star Ocean till the end of time and chrono cross.
valkyrie profile was awesome as well
You've got some good taste there.
That list looked like the author of it does not know many jrpg soundtracks actually.
Odds are any time you see someone making a list of something, they know nothing about it. Its because people who are experienced enough to know realize the field is too wide to list things out.
Chrono Cross has been permanently set at #1 since it's release. Other than that, it's extremely hard for me to pick my top 5. My standouts are: Final Fantasy 6, 7, and 8 Chrono Trigger That makes 5, but I can't put them in any order.
Too many awesome soundtracks. Vagrant Story and Dark Cloud comes to mind.
Ys Book 1 Xenogears Chrono Cross Final Fantasy IX Final Fantasy VI
Ys 7 is my favourite in terms of soundtrack. Can't get enough of Innocent Primeval Breaker and Crossing Rage :3 https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat... But all Ys had amazing soundtracks. Sadly mainstream gamers didn't recognize Team JDK (or Ys series) because they're not as popular as FF or other popular JRPG with popular composer :(
Xenogears , Chrono Cross , Xenosaga 2 and 3 , Final Fantasy Tactics are probably my top 5 . Anyway you can't go wrong with anything by Matsueda , Kajiura yuki , Uematsu or Shinji Meguro .
How could I forget about tactics. A lot great jprg soundtracks.
Chrono Cross , Xenoblade chronicles Radiant historia Ar tonelico 2 ( seriously listen to those hymnos ) Persona 3 5 sountracks where you can't go wrong. Don't mention it
Xenogears is my personal all time favorite with FFVII follow just behind it, from the countless JRPGs I have play those 2 games have by far the best soundtracks ever, so Mitsuda & Uematsu & I could put Shimomura in 3rd place with Parasite Eve soundtrack which was also amazing.
ff9 and ff tactics had some of the greatest scores I've ever heard.
No Ys? No Legend of Heroes? No Xenogears / Xenosaga? No Vagrant Story? No Kingdom Hearts? No Ar Tonelico? No Persona? Imho, top 5 are not enough.
For me it's anything by Shoji Meguro and Nobuo Uematsu.
I can't really think of 5 but I would probably have Ni no Kuni, Persona 4 and Final Fantasy XIII (say what you like about the game but the soundtrack is spectacular) in my top JRPG soundtracks.
FFXII but not FFVIII dafuq mine would be Xenoblade Chronicles Final Fantasy VIII Blue Dragon Arc Rise Fantasia Radiant Historia
Final Fantasy IX is my fav, its an absolute masterpiece
IX is definitely one of my favorites
