See the Final Fantasy page? Nobuo Uematsu composed around 90% of that (and all of it from the main series entries before Final Fantasy X), and it's what he's famous for.
Okay, is great, but let's not forget Final Fantasy , which also has music by Uematsu. Particularly, Lost Odyssey Main Theme, the dramatic, over the top, and just plan awesome A Formidable Enemy Appears!, and the soothing and emotional Prologue. There's plenty of other examples, however.
, if God Himself decided to compose a song to be blasted during the Apocalypse, He would be hard-pressed to create one more Armageddon-heralding than Blue Dragon The Seal Is Broken. That is all.
While not game related (except for one track from ), Nobuo's solo album Final Fantasy Phantasmagoria is absolutely stunningly gorgeous to hear.
OC Remix's ''Black Wing Metamorphosis'', the audible equivalent to the nerdgasm? And, generally speaking, all of their Voices of the Lifestream remix album is awesome. Do yourself a favor and download it - for free - right here
Rad Racer Music A for sure. Too bad it's so obscure.
Let's not forget The Black Mages' contributions here. Notably hit and miss, several of the best are:
Main battle theme Those Who Fight Further.
The boss theme Force Your Way.
The twelve-minute long orchestra that is Dancing Mad.
As well as the boss fight music, The Decisive Battle, from the same game.
While on the subject of FFVI, turning the opera scene into a real opera, even if the quality is debatable, is awesome for sheer effort of doing it.
Lest we forget turning the cute little piano theme The Skies Above turned into a veritable Rock Opera.
Perhaps most famous for its Epic Riff is Maybe I'm a Lion.
A surprisingly well done flamenco/metal fusion of Vamo' Alla Flamenco.
"Advent: One-Winged Angel". Say what you will about the movie it's from, but that track is a masterpiece!
While Chrono Trigger was mostly composed by Yasunori Mitsuda, Uematsu did contribute some music after Mitsuda overworked himself to the point of stomach ulcers. Tyrano Lair is one of those pieces.
Audi faman illius Einherjar from GuitarFreaks and DrumMania XG.
Plutia's theme in with his band, Earthbound Papas.
Hyperdimension Neptunia V Even if you didn't like itself, the music is amazing on its own. Some notable tracks:
Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children
