Anything from Yoko Kanno goes on my list
kajiura yuki is also one of my favs when it comes to soundtracks

top favourites of mine would include Mai HiME soundtrack 1, Black Cat soundtrack, Kekkaishi soundtrack
Michiru Oshima who did FMA and who now did Xam'd Lost Memories is also one of my favourites

I have so many favourites I wouldn't know which to pick if it had to be one.. but if I had to then it would probably be the first Mai HiME soundtrack, I've listened to that one far too many times

Last year went to Macross ... this year going by OP/ED Kemono no Souja Erin ~ Beast Player ~ looks like the most likely candidate

I have alot of favorite anime songs. I also agree "Sharpshooter" is just such a bad-ass song. I feel like I could rob a bank when I listen to it.

but I have to say Kanno's "Macross Plus" soundtrack is a masterpiece. I bought it in 1996 and I regularly listen to the whole thing almost twice a month. I can hum all the songs in my head right now.

And it never gets old or boring.

My favourite soundracks from anime are the ones for;

"X"
Death Note
Gun X Sword
Azumanga Daioh
Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu
Fullmetal Alchemist


I liked the Azumanga Daioh one because it was so unique and clever, the way they used sounds such as hitting kettles, to make it suit the atmosphere of the anime.

Best 2007 soundtrack nomination and voting threads:

I thought about running a 2008 poll but was waiting to see whether musical scores were going to be a category in Kyomi's Choice Awards poll. I'm a little busy at the moment to do this again, but you're all welcome to pick up the torch.

I didn't find many of the scores I heard in 2008 all that memorable. The mix of quiet piano sequences and epic-scaled orchestral pieces in Shion no Ou was one of the best.

Of the ones I nominated in 2007, I still listen to the OST for Dennou Coil on a regular basis, and the ones for Bartender and Oh! Edo Rocket as well. "Guns 'n Roses," the OP from Baccano! is now my cell ringtone.

As I've mentioned in one of the other threads, 2008 wasn't exactly a memorable year on the soundtrack fronts. But I can say that I agree with your choices here. Bartender was definitely a very strong soundtrack and I liked what I heard out of Shion no Ou and Dennou Coil. Based on your tastes, I just might have to give Oh! Edo Rocket a shot. Can you give me an idea as to the genre it falls under (roughly speaking).

Baccano!'s OP still remains one of my favorites but I wish I could say the same about its music. The jazz was appropriate within the context of the series but without it, it sounds so bland.

The score combines music from a variety of genres, but the dominant influences are jazz, including both small combos and more especially the "big-band" sound, with a bit of Mariachi thrown in from time to time. There are also a couple of rock tracks, though I find these less interesting than the others. Upon repeated listening you see that's there's less diversity than at first meets the ear because a number of themes are repeated with varying arrangements. I'd still recommend it, though.

At one point, in the Rocket thread I believe, I wondered if the big-band influences had roots in the postwar American occupation. Some tracks sound like they could have been written by the Dorsey brothers.

One of the things that's so striking to me about the best anime scores is their use of percussion, a feature of both the Rocket and the Dennou Coil scores. It gives the music a distinctly Asian feeling.

Let me just pimp the score for Dennou Coil one more time. It's truly an extraordinary piece of work for a television sound track. I particularly enjoy the wide range of instrumentation and moods throughout.

Also a while back I made a thread about what people thought to be the best OST of last year, no poll or anything though
But I must agree OST wise this year has been very low and sucky even lol

Fullmetal Alchemist op3+4, ed1+2
Bleach op2+3,too many endings to list
Toradora op2 and both endings, they're stuck in my head all day.
Jigoku shoujo futakomori: during the start of an episode,during the hell scene, both ops, there are generally many well-blended melodies in this one.
Gintama op1+3, the two last endings were very nice too.
