Sort of funny. I made a thread almost exactly two years ago (old username, hence the difference) in regards to Uematsu's being involved in the vast majority of music in Final Fantasy XIV (see here
) and how it compared to the music in Final Fantasy XI. The old thread definitely seemed to confirm that at least a plurality of the responses to it agreed on Uematsu's music in FFXIV really just ... not really working overall. Now it seems there is more and more concern that he is getting the heave-ho from being one of the only composers around for the game.
Personally, I'd actually be happy if that was the case. I know that might sound harsh, and I really do
like a lot of his past works which he composed for the Final Fantasy series in the past, but I always felt that his work for XIV was one of his weakest, and as a poster in the old thread mentioned when comparing both composer count, which composers did the most music, and overall song totals between the two games (core games, excluding XI's expansions), he was possibly overworked and stretched way too thin.
Whatever the case, I'll be glad to see what they can do without Uematsu not being the primary composer working on XIV's music if that is the case. Edited, Nov 29th 2012 11:30pm by Satisiun
