Yasunori Mitsuda’s music is arguably some of the best created for video games, and the soundtrack for Chrono Cross is no exception. The songs are beautiful and so relaxing to listen to. Even people who aren’t normally fans of vgm can appreciate this soundtrack, and if the digital instruments bother them (though honestly they’re a LONG way from chiptunes), find a recording of one of the orchestral versions. It’s all so good I can’t even pick a few personal favorites. I literally have the entire soundtrack in my itunes.
This is music that will evoke all sorts of emotions, even if you’ve never played the game at all. I highly recommend it to anyone.
