Resolved Question: Nobuo Uematsu or Joe
whom doth thou prefer?
theyre both excellent composers, personally i prefer Uematsu, his music is more classical than romantic like Hisaishi's...
thats not to say I don't like Hisaishi, he has some beautiful works as well...
i just have a friend who prefers Hisaishi, but his reason is that Uematsu's works are all done for video games (Final Fantasy, to be precise) and i really dont think thats a valid reason...
unless you REALLY hated Final Fantasy...
meh. i just wanted some opinions from the general public... oh, i forgot...
everyone on y answers is a poptard, especially in the music section...
people dont listen to real music anymore, its kinda sad...
