"The Final Fantasy X soundtrack already contains a lot of variations on a few common themes," note project organizers Joe Chen and Emily McMillan. "We wanted to create a listening experience where it didn't feel like you're listening to 'Hymn of the Fayths' 20 times in a row, so all of our artists aimed to do something new on their track. For example, some artists arranged in an unfamiliar style, while others incorporated unique instrumentation. As a result, both SPIRA albums re-frame the classic themes fromFinal Fantasy X with a fresh perspective."
SPIRA follows other well-received arrangement projects from Materia Collective including MATERIA: Final Fantasy VII Remixed and SUCCESSOR: Final Fantasy VIII Remixed. Given the size of this collection, fans can count on all of their favorite tracks being included, such as the highly emotional "Zanarkand," the beautiful vocal ballad, "Suteki da ne," and everyone's favorite metal track, "Otherworld."
