OCRA-0040 - Final Fantasy VI: Balance and Ruin

Recommended Posts

Now figure out which of the bumper stickers I licked.

I can't tell just by looking, so I'm going to have to kiss all of them. :-P

When I get home, of course. This box of joy arrived just as I was about to leave for an out-of-state business trip that will last for at least a week. I postponed my departure to photograph the box and post it here and on Facebook, since I felt it was very important to taunt everyone^H^H^H^H^H share this with you.

Actually, I'm very thankful to have the bumper stickers, since I needed a new one. I had one on my truck that djpretzel gave me at SGC2009, but someone smashed into me on TX 360, wrecking the sticker! And the bumper and the tailgate and part of the bed and the side of the truck... :puppyeyes: It's all fixed now, and with the application of a new sticker, my truck will once again be whole!

I believe I should be the last one to have received the package from the kickstarter as I got it today. If you haven't received your package yet, I'd advice you to throw David Lloyd a message about it. I thought I'd post it here for anyone wishing to see what it looked like, being a sponsor. Obviously, I have a bunch to give out to those friends of mine who also enjoy video game music. ^.-

The entire package:

One of each album included (Balance and Ruin twice, for the backside):

I do hope all of the stuff for the backers are shipped; that means it's the artists' turn! :D

Almost seven years later, I think this one remains my absolute favorite of the albums that have ever been put on the site. What I loved about it right when it was brand new was its imagination in cranking out things that were exactly what I had always wanted to hear, like the full orchestra doing Terra's theme, which still remains amazing. But what I really love about it today is how many tracks on here are unlike anything I ever would have thought I wanted for these themes and they're also amazing.

The opera sequence with a heavy dose of Bohemian Rhapsody, the Phantom Train and Ultros both coming at you with mind-boggling clarinet licks, the last dungeon channeling some Mahler, and even the lengthy prog rock treatment of the whole game. I seem to recall this project had to overcome some, ah, legal roadblocks and every time I listen to it I'm just so glad it did. I dig it from start to finish.
