I haven't played FF5 through recently (although I've played through the first continent recently) and so far, the sound track hasn't really grabbed me. The first two songs felt very, VERY bland. Tracks 3, 4, and 5 however were quite good. I'm writting this as I listen to keep this fresh in my mind btw. Track 6, also qualifies as good. Track 7 looks like its gonna win my favorite track of this set. I didn't like track 8 much, it felt like it was trying to do too much and felt too distorted. Track 9 made a great contrast to track 8 btw. I stand corrected, as Track 9 is my favorite of this set.
If I were to compare this to the Donkey Kong Country 2 remix, I would have to say clearly Donkey Kong Country 2 wins. The songs in that just grabbed me more. The FF5 ones for the most part were good, and I am looking forward to the next crystal, Water, but I don't think I'll be going out of my way to listen to the Wind tracks.
Hopefully this is the sort of feedback you guys wanted on this.
