Phantasy Star Online: Blue Burst Episode IV Sound Track is an album featuring the music added to the final episode of Sega's masterpiece action/RPG series. It has 1 CD and a total of 10 tracks, including an arranged version of the Episode II Ending Theme.  This is a rare find indeed, as it was only released with the boxed Japanese print of the game.
Review by Shinobi | 11.17.2015
     > A play-through of Blue Burst (Episode IV of PSO) is somewhat shorter than Episodes I or II, hence the shorter soundtrack.  The various areas have the familiar paired songs with special tunes for the end boss.  It's surely one of the better PC game soundtracks you can find.

     > Once again, the composers did a great job of maintaining the techno-futuristic beats and mood-setting melodies throughout.  Most of the songs are top notch, per what we've come to expect from Phantasy Star Online games.  My favorite song is track 3, "Nostalgia In Solitude ~Part 2", which was used in Phantasy Star Universe as well.  I must say though, what were they thinking on track 10, "World With Me ~Remix for PSO BB"?  This song has the original Episode II voice track, but sped up to sound pretty weird -- it's the only mistake on this album.

Bottom Line:
     > The PSO Blue Burst Episode IV soundtrack does a fine job of carrying the flag for the series.  I would put it last in the ranking of PSO albums altogether, but that's just a sign of how powerful the music in this RPG series is, not that this CD is lacking.  Unfortunately, Sega limited this release to boxed versions of a Japanese PC game!  At any rate, you can buy this CD on iTunes if you like; that's what I did.

Overall: 8/10
