Shadowbringers - Masayoshi Soken, Nobuo Uematsu, Amanda Achen-Keenan & Jason Charles Miller
When the Shadowbringers trailer first dropped, I was skeptical about this as the main theme. It was completely different in tone and style from “Answers”, “Dragonsong”, and “Revolutions”, plus I couldn’t understand the lyrics through the sound effects and the voiceover.
As I played through the expansion, the song grew on me. Then I hit the endgame, and the first notes started up, and I was completely blown away by how perfectly it fit. I’ve run the final trial multiple times now, just because I can’t get enough of the music. “Shadowbringers” definitely ranks among the best FFXIV music, and I would argue, among the best themes in Final Fantasy.
