Section 1: Introduction
----------------------------------------------------------------------

This guide is here to eliminate the always inevitable questions: "Where does
X track play?", or "What was the name of the song that played when?"  
Actually, it's an excuse to polish my writing skills in time for school and
listen to the Star Ocean 3 Soundtrack again and it benefits humanity at the
same time!  Well...maybe not.

I'll be doing most of this from memory, so if I've got something wrong or 
you have something to add, please e-mail me.  You'll be fully credited, I 
assure you.  

Now, many people are afraid of big monsters that we like to call "spoilers."  
I'll say it now: section 3 is relatively spoiler-free.  That is to say, it
describes the track in terms of the situation it plays in.  For example, the
main battle theme for Star Ocean 3 is the "Cutting Edge of Notion."  So, in 
the list, next to "The Cutting Edge of Notion" is, in brackets, (Battle 
Theme).

The Spoiler-Full tracklisting, will, eventually, have descriptions of when
every song plays.  Thus, SECTION 4 IS FULL OF SPOILERS.  It would be best not 
to read that section until you have finished the game.  Unless you want to 
know what happens in the end.

Oh, and I'm basing this off of the US version of Star Ocean 3.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Section 2: Frequently Asked Question
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Actually no one has asked these questions yet, but it's inevitable that some
people will, and so, in order to (possibly?) avoid some people flooding my
inbox, I will ask them now for the benefit of a few.

Question: I have useful information to submit or your FAQ is wrong in such
and such a manner.  Can I tell you how?  Can I laugh at you?

Answer: Please e-mail me if something is wrong in the FAQ.  I'm simply a 
semi-casual gamer with an obsession with Motoi Sakuraba writing his first FAQ.
Incomplete information and general newbieness will be, thus rampant in 
this FAQ.

Please feel free to laugh at me on the messageboards that I will never read.

Question: Can you send me teh MP3s of 'Motoio Sakruba' on MSN/ICQ/AIM/E-Mail?

Answer: No.  Firstly, I don't want to spend the time to rip all of the four 
discs of the original soundtrack simply to send them to you.  I have other 
things in life that I have obligations towards like school, a job, 
a girlfriend, playing games.  Note: priorities not necessarily in that order.
heh.
Secondly, I would ask that you support Motoi Sakuraba by purchasing 
the albums themselves.

Question: Alright, so where can I buy them.

Answer: The most reliable places to buy them are:

www.cocoebiz.com (Support the International Game Music Store!)
www.cdjapan.co.jp (Cheap, but damn is the shipping expensive!)
www.gamemusic.com (Not bad, but kinda expensive)
www.animenation.com (I've never ordered anything from them, but people swear
by them).

Question: I bought the Star Ocean soundtracks off of Ebay and they say 
"SonMay/Everanime/Insert Taiwanese Company here."  Did I buy a Bootleg?

Answer: It is a sad reality that most of the people selling Game Music on 
Ebay are selling pirated copies.  All of the Star Ocean 3 soundtracks have
been pubished by "Team Entertainment."  If it does not say "Team 
Entertainment" 
your CD is a bootleg.  Another great way to tell, in general, if 
your Game Music CD is a bootleg is to look for the logo of the company 
that created the game.  Bootleggers never use that on their discs.

Question: Can you help me with (insert Gameplay aspect here) Star Ocean 3???

Answer: No.  Why?  Cause, to be honest, I suck at the game.  I mean, I still
haven't finished Sphere 211 on Galaxy.  There are some hardcore nuts out
there.  Ask on the message board or read the (currently 2) FAQs on Star 
Ocean.  I just like music.  

Question: What Star Ocean 3 albums have been released?

Answer: They are as follows:

Star Ocean: Till the End of Time Original Soundtrack Volume 1
Star Ocean: Till the End of Time Original Soundtrack Volume 2
Star Ocean: Till the End of Time Arrange Album
Star Ocean: Till the End of Time Voice Mix Arrange Album
Star Ocean: Till the End of Time Director's Cut 



----------------------------------------------------------------------
Section 3: Spoiler-Free Tracklisting
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Note that this is relatively spoiler free.  It will tell you which tracks are
battle tracks, which are town tracks, etc.  If you consider this a spoiler, I 
don't see why you're reading this anyway.  Other than that, I've tried to 
keep this section pretty clean.  Oh, and the tracklisting is from the music
CDs themselves as I've yet to collect enough Battle Trophies to unlock the 
music test.  See the above part where I mention how much I suck.

To all those who can help me fill these holes: please help.  My memory is 
good, but I wasn't paying attention to the music during all the cutscenes 
(especially since it's so hard to hear the voices sometimes).

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Section 4: Spoiler-Full Tracklisting
----------------------------------------------------------------------

A warning now: there are some huge, larger than life, jen-yew-ine SPOILERS!
This is my (as of yet incomplete) listing of where and when each song plays 
in Star Ocean 3.  Again, help me fill in the holes.  E-mail me.  You will 
get credit















Okay?






















REALLY BIG SPOILERS











Okay.  Let's get this show on the road.

Star Ocean: Till the End of Time Original Soudntrack Volume 1.


1. The Dawn of Wisdom

Comments: This song plays during the really spiffy intro movie that's only
present on Disc 1.  I was impressed at how well they choreographed the movie
with the music (or vice versa).  The movie has no purpose, but it is really 
spiffy.  Plus, it gets bonus points to appealing to the history Specialist 
in me.

2. Into the Undiscovery Ocean

Comments: This plays during the "New Game, Continue, Battle Trophies" screen.
It's a shorter version of the Dawn of Wisdom and most people skip it by.  
It's still a very good track, though.

3. Fly by Contact.

Comments: Ah, the menu music.  Has that kinda 'Crystal feeling' that Uematsu 
used in his "Prelude."  

4. Starless Wavelets

Comments: This song plays when the Vendeeni attack the ship you're on that's
heading towards the Federation Base in the beginning of the game.  It's also
played in the end of disc 1 and in disc 2.  Generally, it's played when the 
Vendeeni are attacking you.  Stupid 'bagheads.'  

5. Imbalance

Comments: This plays in a few movie scenes.  The most memorable is the one
after Fayt blows up the Vendeeni ships using his Symbology.  Now that I think 
of it, I wonder why they never developed his purpose to the full extent they 
did Sophia's and Maria's.  It also plays when you discover Nel has gone on 
her little suicide mission to save Tynave and Farleen.  Why oh why couldn't 
you have left Farleen behind??

6. Misted Moon

Comments: I believe this plays when you're on the various transport ships in 
between worlds.  It's a nice piece in any case.  Really calm.  Shoulda been a 
forest theme.  

7. Lakes and Marshes with Doubt.

Comments: For a song that would go so well in a place with, well, lakes and
marshes, this song mostly plays during cutscenes.  It also plays in the
Evacuation shelter and when you're controlling Maria in the flash back. 
Finally, it plays when you're given the decision to recruit Peppita on 
Moon Base.

8. Fallen Leaves - Flute Version

Comments: I can't remember which cutscene this plays during, so if you can 
tell me, please e-mail me.

9. Chrysanthemum in Winter

Comments: This plays in a few 'path' areas.  It plays in Pesotto Forest, and,
I believe, the Traum Mountains as well.

10. The Desolate Smell of Earth

Comments: Whipple isn't a very good name for a town.  Who wants to live in
a place called Whipple?

11. Dreams

Comments: Inns are useful.

12. Till the End of Time

Comments: The title track is played only twice.  Once during the scene with
Fayt and Nicholas in Whipple when he's asking about his music box.  It plays 
again near the end of disc 1 as I recall.

13. Sail Against the Wind

Comments: This one plays in a lot of Cutscenes as well as a couple of paths.

14. Take off From Home

Comments: This one plays in a few cutscenes in disc 1 as well as during the
Bunny Races and the 2P select screen in Versus Mode.

15. Into a Storm not Memorized

Comments: This is the song that plays in cold, frigid Ariglyph.  If you ask
me, the developers didn't spend enough time fleshing out Elicoor 3 for
the amount of time you spend on the goddamn planet.

16. The Outbreak of War

Comments: This plays in Ariglyph castle after Aquios and Ariglyph become 
allies in the fight against the Vendeeni.  It also plays in Count Woltar's
Mansion after that point.

17. March for Glory

Comments: This song, alas, only plays twice and that's when you're on the
battlefield right before the *big* cutscene as well as during the Ariglyph
Conference scene in the beginning of the game when Cliff and Fayt have been
sent to prison.  It's a pity, cause this is a great song.

18. Requiem for a Saint

Comments: This one plays in Arias and, to be honest, is too loud to hear any
dialogue during.  Apparently switching to Dolby Pro Logic II helps.  I did so 
after and had no problems.

19. Stafflower in the Castle Town

Comments: It plays when you first meet Claire in Arias.

20. Collapse of Frailty

Comments: Plays during the 'Inspirational Moments' during various cutscenes. 
It  is fairly apt to doing so as well.

21. Lively Step

Comments: This one plays in Pterney.  Stupid and pointless Ameena...

22. Ice Crystal

Comments: This plays during two cutscenes and they're both the heartwrenching
scenes when Ameena is sick.  Despite her pointlessness, these scenes
do move one.  *sniffle*

23. The Future of Blood-Stained Blade

Comments: This is one of my favourite tracks on the OST.  This is played
during one of the cooler cutscenes in the game (probably why I missed it).
When the captain of the Aquaelie decides to sacrifice himself to save Fayt
and the crew, this song provides the background.  It also plays on 
Square-Enix's official website for the game.

24. Calm Mind Reflected in the Pupil

Comments: This song plays in Aquios, the town.  This along with the great 
graphics really bring the town to life, in my opinion.

25. Reflected Moon

Comments: Aquios Castle is, perhaps, the only thing that looks nicer than the 
town itself.  Really shows off some the detailed background that the 
developers put a lot of time and effort into.

26. Manifestation

Comments: This plays during the *big* cutscene near the end of disc one when
Fayt decides to go medieval on the Vendeeni.

27. So Alone, Be Sorrow (Piano Version)

Comments: This one plays in a few cutscenes.  The one I specifically remember
is the one right after Dion's and Ameena's death.  It also plays, I think, 
when you're watching your father's recording on Moonbase as well as some 
scenes with Maria during her flashback.

28. Imperial Garden

Comments: This one plays when you're in the Shrine of Kaddan.  That dungeon
annoyed me.

29. So Alone, Be Sorrow

Comments: Another cutscene one.  This one gets used a couple of times as well.

30. Influence of Truth Appearance

Comments: Damn, this song is good!  Too bad it only plays during two bosses: 
when you fight against Proclaimer in Moonbase and when you fight Proclaimer
and Enforcer on the Planet Styx.  It's a pity the battles are so short,
since this song makes one's fighting spirit come alive!

31. Brass Wings

Comments: Plays once: during the cutscene with Crossel at the end of Disc 1.
I still don't think those dragons had a chance against the Battleship...

32. Like Squashing Grape

Comments: This plays in a few cutscenes.  Specific ones elude me.

33. Interval of Freezed Time

Comments: The planet Styx scares me.

34. Fallen Leaves

Comments: Again, cutscenes.  If you remember which ones, please e-mail me.

35. Dark Flare

Comments: This plays when you're in the Sphere Corporation for the *first* 
time.

36. Divine Indignation

Comments: I believe this one plays during the scene in between Luther's forms.
I don't think they developed his character very well.

37. Despair Road

Comments: Great remix of The Dawn of Wisdom.  Plays when you find out what
happens to the rest of your characters in the ending.

38. Brilliant Future

Comments: Also plays during the ending.

39. Brass Wings (Another Version)

Comments: Just a bonus track people.


Star Ocean: Till the End of Time Original Soundtrack Disc 2

1. Cutting Edge of Notion

Comments: One of my favourite Sakuraba songs ever (at least the live version 
is).  This one plays during every normal battle in the game and at least it's
a good one since I clocked 901 battles by the time I beat Luther and have 
gone through 400 more just to get to Gabriel Celeste.  Try to hear the live 
version or see the live DVD of Sakuraba playing it.  It is so cool.

2. Victory Bell

Comments: I preferred Valkyrie Profile's and Star Ocean 2's high energy 
victory themes, but oh well.

3. Expiration

Comments: Plays the Ruins of Coffir for one, in between Arena matches in 
Gemity, the Kirsla training facility, and when you're on those bloody haulers
that should die a horrible horrible death.  Awesome guitar track.

4. Malicious Fingers

Comments: The standard boss track.  At least one of the standard boss tracks.
This game actually has a ton of boss tracks and almost all of them are good. 
This one's not my favourite, but it'll do in a pinch.

5. Fly Away in the Violet Sky

Comments: Great dungeon theme.  This song was done one better by the version 
on  the "arrange" album.  Plays in the Ariglyph Aqueducts, the 
Sealed 
Cavern, the Ancient Ruins of Mosel, and the ruins of Barr.

6. Frightened Eyes

Comments: The second kinda-standard boss track.   Not bad...I like the ominous
beginning of the version on the arrange album better, though.

7. The Divine Spirit of Language

Comments: This song is the sh!t.  Plays during the battle with Crossel and,
apparently, when you fight Albel (if you want to).  I say, apparently, 
because he was my fifth character.  Filthy maggots.  I still say they 
should have used this song at least one more time.  My girlfriend's 
pretty good at the guitar and she says that the solo in the middle 
would be almost impossible to play. Kudos to the performers.

8. Pert Girl on the Sandy Beach

Comments: Stupid Hyda IV.  The game starts off pretty slowly, but I'm glad I 
stuck with it even through some of the boredom of the beginning.

9. Gaity Company

Comments: I hate brats saving the world.  Plays when you first meet Peppita 
on Hyda IV and when you meet the little dragon cub in the Barr Mountains.

10. Evil Shade Crept

Comments: Plays in a the Urssa Lava Caves, the Calnus Tranport, and in a 
few cutscenes.

11. Rust Color

Comments: Plays in Kirsla, the mining town.  Haven of those who attempt the
Cave Of Trials (I hate Maze of Tribulations).

12. Bracing Forest Wind

Comments: That invention lady is so damned annoying.  

13. Let's Creation.

Comments: X, X, X, X, X, X, X, Oh Crap, I just skipped '12!'

14. Bird's Eye View

Comments: Plays in the Palmira Plains and the Irisa Fields.  It also comes 
out in a few cutscenes as another inspirational piece.  Specifically, when
you're on Crossel's back after whipping him good.

15. What's Up?

Comments: Plays in silly cutscenes like the one with Roger in the forest 
and with Puffy in the Cave of Trials.

16. Adventurous Spirit

Comments: It plays in the  Bequerel Mountain Path.

17. I am the No. 1!

Comments: Anyone who is the No. 1! at the Bunny Races must have sold their 
soul to Satan.  Oh, and it's Roger's theme.  Stupid little brat.

18. Around in the Wilderness

Comments: Plays in the Aire/Kirlsa hills.  I wonder why it has two names?
Also plays in the Granah Hills, Mosel Dunes, and the Barr Mountains.

19. Robe Under Cover of Darkness

Comments: During all the dark cave sequences, this is the song that plays.  
Radar kinda ruins these places, though.  The dark cave sequences are the
Kirsla Caverns, the Bequerel Mines, Barr Cave, and the Passage From Parch
to Plenty.

20. So Alone, Be Sorrow (Rhythm Version)

Comments: Plays in a few cutscenes.  One of which, I believe, is when Maria 
shows up on Elicoor II for the first time.

21. Preemptive Attack

Comments: Plays in the various spaceships you're on like the Aquaelie and the
Diplo.

22. Moonbase

Comments: Plays everywhere but at Moonbase.  =p

23. Twisted Base

Comments: This is played in Arkives, the first town you are in when you go
into 4 Dimensional Space.  Damn that was a stupid plot twist.

24. People Inside a Fence

Comments: Plays in Vanilla's House in Arkives.

25. Air Harmony

Comments: OMG Fun City all over again.  Oh, and it plays in Surferio, the 
town of faeires and other weird people.

26. Bitter Dance

Comments: It's not that I dislike this song, but I think it's played at the 
wrong times.  It's played during a lot of the serious battles and this song 
kinda ruins that feeling.  Oh well.  I'll have the lyrics up shortly as well.

27. Powerbroker

Comments: Another 'Big' Boss theme.

28. The Virtual Image

Comments: This song perfectly fits Firewall which reminds me of the dungeons
from .hack

29. Mission to the Empty Space

Comments: What a great song!  The Voice Mix Arrange version with the guy 
laughing in the beginning is even better!  Mostly because it loops. But the
voices are cool too.  It plays in the Spiral Tower, the final dungeon.  

30. Do Evil

Comments: During the main story, this plays but once and that is at Pseudo
Blair.  It's a shame, because I beat that boss in under ten seconds.  Again,
if you like this track, check out the version on the Voice Mix Arrange 
album.  Great stuff.  HAHAHAHAHAHA!

31. Moody Goddess

Comments: I'm not very fond of Sakuraba's jazz stuff, but this one is half 
decent.  It plays during the first form of Luther which means, it'll be one
for about 10-20 seconds.  =p

32. Highbrow

Comments: This song is incredible.  A prog-rock epic clocking in at over 10
minutes long.  It's a shame you can defeat Luther in under a minute if you're 
at all skilled.  One of Sakuraba's best.

33. Star Ocean Forever (Jazz Version)

Comments: I hate this song.  This plays during the credits if you complete
the game on Universe or 4D difficulty.  What a reward...

34. Mission to the Deep Space

Comments: A tri-ace staple now, Mission to the Deep Space plays in all of the
recent tri-ace bonus dungeons.  That is to say, the Cave of Trials in SO2, the
Seraphic Gate in Valkyrie Profile, and the Maze of Tribulations and the 
Sphere Corporation in this game.  Great guitar version!

35. The Incarnation of Devil

Comments: I haven't reached the boss this plays at.

36. Confidence in the Domination

Comments: This song plays during the battle with Lenneth.  
It was originally the standard boss track in Valkyrie Profile.  It has been 
arranged and spiffied up for this game considerably.

37. The True Nature of All

Comments: Plays during the fight with Freya.  This was originally the last 
boss theme from Valkryie Profile if I recall correctly.  It's been a good 
three years since I last played that game...maybe it's time for a replay...

38. Moody Goddess (Another Version)

Comments: Just a bonus track, folks, nothing to see here.


Extra Tracks:

1. A Little Bird Who Forgot How to Fly (Star Ocean Version)

Comments: Plays in the beginning with Sophia and in the credits

2. A Little Bird Who Forgot How to Fly (Instrumental)

Comments: Plays in various cutscenes.

Section 5: Conclusion
----------------------------------------------------------------------

What you can conclude from this FAQ is two things:

1. Motoi Sakuraba is a musical genius.
2. I can't write FAQs to save my life.  No, seriously.  I've forgotten so much
and it shows.  Please help me by contributing to my FAQ.  lol  Save me!  If
it wasn't already obvious, this is my first FAQ and probably one of my last 
unless people actually like this one.

Thanks
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks to CjayC who should be rich man for creating this site.  Unfortunately,
that is not the case, so what he gets is my thanks.

I must deeply thank Chris Kern, Solstice, and Yam Goatse.  For the sake of 
readability I am not posting their individual contributions because they 
were so great in number and quality that giving them due credit would 
probably interfere with the FAQ.  Thus, I thank them here.  You rock!

Thanks goes to my girlfriend, Shelbie, who actually tolerated me playing 50
hours of Star Ocean 3 in one week.  Of course, I took two days off to go see
her in her ill state.  =p  Doubt she'll ever read this, though.

Thanks goes to tri-ace for making cool games.  Valkyrie Profile's still my \
fav, though.  =p

Thanks goes to Motoi Sakuraba for the musical inspiration.  I have spent 
many a day listening to his work.

Thanks to CD Japan and cocoebiz for providing me with the Star Ocean 3 
soundtracks.  Of course, I had to pay for them, but still...

Thanks for reading.
