SONG OF THE WEEK: I Am Setsuna – No Turning Back


Song of the Week is a weekly feature where we show off the best of video game music. From the sweeping orchestra music of Nobuo Uematsu to the more somber tunes of Yoko Shimomura, prepare to have your ears delighted every week.

I Am Setsuna releases tomorrow, July 19th, so what better way to celebrate then to show off some more music from the game’s amazing soundtrack. We previous featured the song Tender Glow on Song of the Week, so if you haven’t checked that out then I HIGHLY suggest you do so.

Today’s piece is a very different from Tender Glow. This piece is far quicker and plays during one of the game’s boss battles (at least as far as I can tell). Just like all of the other music from the I Am Setsuna soundtrack, piano is at the forefront of this piece with the rapid keystrokes resonating in a very powerful way.

I’m not gonna lie, I struggled to choose a piece from I Am Setsuna because all of the music from the game is just so excellant. I ultimately decided to choose this song because it’s called No Turning Back which, considering the game’s launch tomorrow, seems very fitting.
