I buy a lot of OST for games and anime. As a Limited Set, it is OK but too expensive. It comes in a nice large white box with a big XIII on the front. It also includes a drama disc (sealed in a foil bag no less), mini-artbook, and the large 4 CD fold-out set. The CD has Bilingual Japanese/English track names. The mini-artbook is all Japanese (except for the credits in English, go figure). I have a beef with the artbook being just stapled sheets. I figure for this price they could make it a hard-bound artbook like that included with Mass Effect 2's Collector's Edition. But not to be, it's just paper.

I am very disappointed with the sound quality of this set. This goes for most of the piano and orchestral pieces. They all sound "tinny" with lots of clipping on the piano sections. This makes me very sad, because those are some of the best pieces in the whole set! And to make the recording so bad, makes my sound system sound like a cheap radio, like an mp3 compressed at 96kb or something. What the hell were they thinking? The only good sounding track is "Afro Blues" on CD2, but I wanted all the orchestral/piano to sound good, and they sure screwed that up. Sad very sad. As far as tracks go, they have all the music in the game that you'll ever want, with some very short tracks. However it is quite complete.

If you want all of the music, then by all means buy this. But if you want better sound quality, I would wait and see if they release just an orchestral tracks version, which hopefully has better quality recordings.

I have read reviews both for this soundtrack and for the collector's edition. The C.E. reviews spoke of scratchy or static sounds being in the music, kind of like an old record player or radio. While I admit I have not listened to every minute of every track(yet), I have listened to at least part of every track, and everything I heard was PERFECT. So if you want an FFXIII soundtrack that sounds just beautiful, get this wonderful standard version instead of the collector's edition! 2 more things:I myself can't complain about the packaging(the plastic was thicker & the tape more sticky, maybe because it's from Japan?), and finally, this is certainly my favorite soundtrack of the series, quite wonderful and beautiful!

This is the 2nd Final Fantasy soundtrack I have and I gotta say its awesome. (It still does not beat Final Fantasy VII in my opinion) From the battle theme to the final boss theme is awesome. And of course the song that plays when your riding a chocobo (i think that is how you spell it?) fits the birds. When I listen to the soundtrack I play the game as well with the volume muted so I can just listen to the music only.

I really enjoy playing FF XIII and the music is wonderful so I thought I would buy the cd. It is a 4 disc collection. I WAS going to purchase the collector's edition but this one is cheaper and has the same songs on it so why bother with the 80$ one lol. This is a must for final fantasy lovers!

Music quality aside, many of the tracks on multiple CDs sound like the CD had been "scratched" terribly. It even had my iTunes freeze up on me multiple times for importing the mp3s. I had to actually buy the tracks off of the iTunes store to get those tracks - nearly a whole CD's worth. Please purchase a different version of the soundtrack than this one. It ended up costing me close to a hundred dollars in replacing the songs.

This album is pretty good. I know some people were upset that Nobuo Uematsu did not compose this album. but Masashi Hamauzu does a fine job in his stead. I heard alot of people saying this soundtrack was not very good, but after listening, I think that has more to do with these people not liking the game. Soundtrack has a mix of vocal, techno, and orchestral tracks. While I'm not a fan of the techno, the orchestral pieces are fantastic. I recommend buying this album, whether you are an FF fan or not.

I received this item much faster than I thought I would. So that was a bonus. Upon opening it, the item was undamaged in any way, which is more than I'm used to. Most of the time I find a dented corner or a scratched cover from mishandling between the manufacturer and the supplier. This was completely unscathed.

The box itself is fairly nice, it does give the Final Fantasy feeling when opening it. Very contemporary in style. The artbook has some nice pictures in it. The soundtrack CD's appear very nice and the casing in which they are carried is also fairly nice. There is also a bonus wrapped up CD which I have yet to open. All in all I am fairly impressed with the stuff provided.

I am however, not as impressed in the price. As a limited edition I can see them charging an abundance of money, but I just think for a soundtrack this was a little steep. If they wanted to charge extra money for something, they could've released a limited edition of the game itself. That would have been worth it. I was expecting this to be about $44.99-$50.00, not almost $80.00 - this is steep. For this price, the quality of the contents don't really meet up to par. It seems more like a marketing scam just to get the all the diehard fans to dish out some extra cash.

The box could have been white velvet lined or had a little more put into it. The artbook should've definitely been hardbound and maybe a little thicker in detail. I don't mind the Japanese subtitles on everything, because this is a Japanese game. However English would've been nice, even if in fine print in the artbook so you knew what it said. The CD quality could've been a bit better. Some parts of it kind of reminded me of the music from Rapture in Bioshock. With an old radio scratchiness to it.

Legit?
people are probably wary because there are pirate copies going around, especially ebay in which the front cover looks identical to fool people.

Also, it makes me sad to hear that some people say its not great quality. That is a surprise for me since it is made by Square themselves. Are we sure... Read More
