Hopefully this isn't considered a duplicate discussion. The last OST thread was from 2010, so I'm sure it's alright.



Personally, I don't think Yoko Kanno has ever composed one piece of bad music. I prefer some material over others but the versatility of her catalog is quite impressive. Shiro Sagisu's Evangelion score is phenomenal too, especially the third OST, Symphony LIVE and Evangelion: Death.

What are some of your preferences?

Re Yoko Kanno: I believe your choices are the benchmark.

I have her material from Cowboy Bebop in the CD stack in my truck. Most of the time 4 of 6 slots are Yoko Kanno renditions of jazz. Lately, however, I bought a few CDs straight out of Japan and 1 in particular really stands out:

Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt THE WORST ALBUM CD on Flying Dog label.

It was released in 2011 and has 73 minutes, 24 tracks of some real kick-ass Japanese fusion plus an album cover that might make your Mom blush. This album is largely a re-mix of the first album (have it also but don't play as much as TWA any more). It has become my favorite CD of late with Chocolate, Champion, and Fallen Angel. Fallen Angel remix on Track 24 is darn near worth the cost of the CD when I purchased it for a whole lot less than what certain Japanese stores are asking for it now. You can find samples of the playing style and the album on You tube.

Let's see--I'd say Revolutionary Girl Utena, .hack, No. 6, and Initial D come to mind as my favorite Anime soundtracks. There may be others, but these 4 come to mind quickly. Usually I'm more into vocal collections, so if I LIKE the background music, it's a big deal.
