Nobuo Uematsu - Phantasmagoria, 1994

The first (and from what I gather, one of the only) non-Final Fantasy release from legendary Japanese composer Nobuo Uematsu. Alternates between candy-sweet synthetic puffs of new age, ominous baroque, and spoken word. The instantly familiar "Dogs on the Beach" belongs on Ray Lynch's Deep Breakfast, the title track feels like a very tasteful score for a Tim Burton ballet, and of course, "Final Fantasy" is an even more (!) baroque spin on the video game theme, this time with harpsichord and vocals from Chinatsu Kuzuu. Thanks for the tip on this one Mike!
