4. Nobuo Uematsu <-- Final Fantasy music composer, yeah?
Yep you would be right. He is absolutely brilliant with what he is able to do. I wish he would have a concert down here again though
Absolutely... he is a wonderful composer. I own most of the OSTs on disc.
Aside from anime and game soundtracks, my own tastes include just about every well-written piece of music that crosses my path (although I am admittedly biased against country/western!) My favorite genres are, I suppose, classic rock (especially Led Zeppelin, the Beatles and Jimi), some "alternative" (Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins), unclassifiable industrial (Nine Inch Nails, Tool), progressive metal (Opeth), varied vocal (Josh Groban, several operatic compositions) and varied electronic. Basically, if it's orchestrated well, if it touches and stirs the musician inside me somehow... I'm sold.
