Joel Hands-Otte A beautiful album! Deliciously delicate and pompously powerful at the same time! Faithful arrangements with a virtuosic twist. Many thanks for a trip back into the world of Ni no Kuni! More, Mark, more! Favorite track: Ding Dong Dell, the Cat King's Castle.

Melissa G. It took a handful of listens before the arrangements warmed up to me, but I love it now. Chio, thank you for adapting this Ghibli-inspired game into a lovely piano piece. Favorite track: Hamelin, Cradle of Industry.

Journey of the Heart lovingly takes all the favourites from Joe Hisaishi's memorable soundtrack and gives them the virtuosic piano treatment. It is a deeply personal tribute to the first Ni No Kuni game, weaving together all the themes of peace, determination, joy, despair and hope, thus reliving Oliver's epic journey and his quest for truth across two different worlds in the process.
