FF7 Rebirth Soundtrack
« on: April 21, 2024, 08:15:10 am »
A bit frustraited at the FF7 Rebirth soundtrack. Love the music, but not willing to pay $70 for an absured collection of 175 songs across 7-8 discs. There's like... a dozen songs in the game I really liked. Went to Amazon to piece meal it at a buck each, and they don't even allow you to listen to the tracks without purchase... let alone purchase individual songs. So that sucks. Cheapest I can go is $45 for the entire digital group of 175 songs... but I'm still wasting about $30 on the 160 songs I wouldn't bother listening too more than once.

Very annoying.

You can buy the songs individually on iTunes for $0.99 it looks like

Interesting. Does iTunes still put the file in a propriatary format where you can't listen to it on anything but an Apple device or require iTunes on the device? It was Apple's closed system that turned me off of doing business with them.

Hmm... it seems Amazon allows the purchase of the individual songs on PC. I was checking on mobile and didn't see the individual download links. You just can't preview the tracks to ensure you're buying the right one.

I think Apple stopped doing that a while ago, but I'm not sure. I use software called Sidify that strips all of the stupid copy protected, device locked crap from Amazon and iTunes files so I can my move music around to any device however I please.

What annoys me about FF soundtracks lately is there is a Standard & Ultimate Edition.... Why isn't the Ultimate Edition the standard?... £$£$£$£

It's a considerable amount more too for jsut 1 extra disc, yet paying for the Standard Edition just feels incomplete.

Then the idea of paying for muisc locked within a digital ecosystem is stupid to me. I still use MP3 like I have been for 2+ decades.

As for the soundtrack itself it is delightful, but I tend to enjoy a lot of the more low-key tracks for listening - So while a lot of the aciton-heavy moments have complimentary music for the moment, I don';t tend to listen to such tracks outside the context. This is why Final Fantasy VIII's soundtrack is my favourite, it's the one where I rarely skip a track on Shuffle.

I also really like the one from FF8, there is no song to throw away... the OST is masterful.
