Glad that You’re Not Alone is in the top 4, but I had to go with Lib. A vote for Liberi Fatali is in many ways a vote for most of FFVIII’s amazing ost. So many of the motifs used throughout the soundtrack are not only present, but at their shiniest.
I like both of these for very different reasons. But Liberi Fatali manages to nail everything in it. It's really easy for the big grand themes to become just another "big grand theme" and Liberi Fatali always manages to stand out among all of them. It's got the perfect balance of choir to music and neither of them really fade into the background the way they sometimes do in other peices.
You're Not Alone is one of the best "hero finds himself" songs in the series, but there's lots of really good songs that fit into this category. It doesn't have the extra "oomph" Liberi Fatali does.
I voted for Liberi Fatali, it's the better piece imo.
I'm not gonna lie, I do think You're Not Alone is a bit overrated and I have mixed feelings with it being in the final 4, but at the same time I'm pleased a IX song made it this far, and also pleased that an VIII song made it this far. <3 It'd have been even better if there was representation of four separate games but I suppose I'll take 3.
