Top 5 Nobuo Uematsu Game Soundtracks that Aren’t Final Fantasy

GameDynamo - "One of the most recognizable and longer-standing names in video game music composition, Nobuo Uematsu, was never formally trained. However, he began music at an early age. After being approached randomly by a Squaresoft employee while working in a Tokyo music rental shop back in 1985, he has since composed dozens of soundtracks. While the Final Fantasy series is his most popular, there are plenty of other OSTs which he has composed that are simply amazing. Here is our list of top five non-Final Fantasy, Uematsu soundtracks." (Arcade, Blue Dragon, Culture, Lord of Vermilion, Lost Odyssey, PS3, Sakura Note, The Last Story, Wii, Xbox 360)

he's the best music composer ever for FF titles.

I guess no one liked SaGa huh? (aka FF Legends in the west)
But oh man when Kenji Ito and Uematsu worked on SaGa 2... that was a godly and legendary OST. I was expecting it to have this more popular works, but tbh he hasn't worked on too much else...
I also liked Anata o Yurusanai's OST...

I really want The Last Story to come out in the west quickly!

Sadly every time I think of Blue Dragon's music I'm reminded of that terrible Eternity song from the boss battles.

Jesus Christ the guy from Deep Purple sang that!

I know but it was so annoying after hearing it over and over.

There was recently a concert in germany as a tribute to nobuo uematsu. its on youtube called symphonic odysseys. It was the first time ive really heard some of his other stuff like lost oddysey and blue dragon. All of his songs are good but nothing compares to his work in final fantasy imo. (Especially hamazu's arrangemen of Fleeting Dream from FF10)
