48. Nobuo Uematsu
Something little different this time on my top band/artist countdown. Game music composer Nobuo Uematsu, best known for Final Fantasy -series.
I don't usually listen to classical music that much. And when I do, it's usually soundtracks of movies or games. I'll take Danny Elfman, John Williams, Koji Kondo and Nobuo Uematsu over Bach or Mozart any day, any time.
Like many before me and many more after, Final Fantasy VII was the game that got me into Uematsu's work. The music elevates FFVII into a whole new level.
Personal highlight: Aerith's Theme (from the Final Fantasy VII soundtrack)
Other recommendations: Final Fantasy VII Main Theme, Valley Of The Fallen Star
Favourite album: Final Fantasy VII OST
