That's right. Turn down the sound effects volume. Mute the ambient noise. Silence the interface clicks and beeps and just lose yourself in a soundtrack as lush and varied as the world of Eorzea itself. Here are some of my favourites so far.
Music director Masayoshi Soken has brought together a dazzling array of talent to weave a fantastic musical tapestry that covers the entire game like a warm blanket. Iconic Final Fantasy music has been rejuvenated, original compositions joining them as if they've always been there. It's magical.
The music in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is wonderful complex and satisfying that I've found myself stopping to listen multiple times over the past few days. Keeping me from playing is a pretty big deal, considering how hard the launch server congestion has made it to connect.
At least the menu music is lovely.
