Song of the Day: Ruin and Creation (from Star Ocean: the Last Hope)

Star Ocean is in my top favorite gaming franchises. As a concept it is simply incredible, and with the final addition from which today’s Song comes from it has cemented itself in my brain as an unforgettable experience.

Star Ocean: the Last Hope, though the last game in the series, is actually a prequel to the other three and takes place during the era where mankind has only just developed warp travel and with it the capability to visit planets until then far beyond their reach. Motoi Sakuraba, again the composer, takes the music in a completely different direction than the previous title in the series which mainly featured electronic/dance/techno-styled scores and battle themes; returning here are the epic-seeming tracks to fit mankind’s first journey on the star ocean.
