Song: Limestone Quarry
Composer: Hitoshi Sakimoto
Album: Vagrant Story Original Soundtrack
People give Sakimoto a bunch of shit basically for not being Uematsu, but I think I would ragequit the game if I had to listen to Uematsu’s repetitive melodies for several hours at a time while running through Leá Monde.
My favorite part of this particular piece is the dramatic shift that takes place about two-thirds of the way through. It sounds so different from everything that precedes it, yet it is able to blend in spectacularly when the track loops back to the beginning.
