Introduction ~Ahead on Our Way~
The Fabled Warriors is a series of five free albums from OverClocked ReMix that celebrates Nobuo Uematsu's classic score for Square's Final Fantasy V. Each album is comprised of themes for important characters in the series as well as the myriad of job classes that made the game famous.
I have always felt that Final Fantasy V's soundtrack has a bit of lightness to it that other Final Fantasy soundtracks eschew in favor of darker, moodier themes. This game always struck me as more of an adventure than any of the others in the series, and Uematsu's score grabs that and runs with it. This is nowhere more evident than in 'Ahead on Our Way,' Final Fantasy V's main theme, and in my opinion, the best main theme for any Final Fantasy game.
I hope everyone enjoys this tribute to Nobuo Uematsu's wonderful score. We hope to make each album better than the last!
