Exactly why I love the movie poster! The Star Wars vibe is strong with it. I don't mind it being the OST cover since it is such an awesome poster.
I don't mind the poster, but I wanted a more original cover. Maybe the 00Q in Quantum Burst or even Graham's Brave defending the 00Q.

I've sorted the songs into groups based on how they are structured and composed. It looks like I have 27 of 30 songs evaluated...I'll try and find which ones are missing from this list (When I imported them, the track order got mixed up).
Spoiler:

I hope that this list partially clears up which songs are remixed and which ones are original

[EDIT] On closer inspection, Final Mission~Quantum Burst bears less resemblence to Masurao a few seconds in: the second half of the song is original in feel.

I'm actually finding the remix pieces to be the best part of the soundtrack, and that's a huge shame. Still a good listen, just that i know Kawai can do better. Ah well.

My favorites are Heart of Feldt, Future Aeolia's Dream (A remix of and/or containing elements from Solitariness & Affectionately from OST Vol. 4), Envoy from Jupiter, and Transient Peace.

Thank you!

EDIT: Comparing your list to the OST track listing, the two you missed were "Inspectorate" and "Ribbons Almark"; the third is one of the band songs.

Thanks for pointing that out. "Ribbons Almark" falls under the second list, while Inspectorate is another remix. For me, I particularly enjoyed "Heart of Feldt" and "Final Battle ~ Quantum Burst"

Thanks for the breakdown, finally got to listen.

As far as who should get it I agree with the positive recommendations so far, if you're a fan of the 00 music you should probably enjoy it, and if you want more new music that really fits 00 but don't mind paying for nice new versions of old favorites, if you only want new music and that's it it's not quite as clear cut since along with some really nice new stuff maybe a little less than half of the new stuff is grittier music which seems quite appropriate given the minor spoilers I've read and as has been previously mentioned but will probably be more up to personal playlist tendencies.

I think a bunch of the original movie songs in the first group are quite good, my current favorites so far are probably
Spoiler:
. Perhaps another one or two original fast pieces to go with those to balance out all the new "suspense" pieces would have addressed any stand-alone listening concerns over whether or not there's enough of a balance of the memorable music coming from original pieces or remixes for a full-price purchase for some since even several of the non-suspense original tracks seem to favor mood-setting/revelation pieces so even with several excellent new action songs they might be a bit outnumbered to some.

I agree about the remixes, not only are they really well done but at least if they were going to bring songs back I think they/Kenji Kawai thankfully also chose most of the right ones that should make it "feel" like a proper part of 00 rather than just "because" there has to be remixes so that's good, for example definitely eternally grateful for the fresh
Spoiler:


I agree about the moody "horror" pieces, not crazy about them in the standalone soundtrack sense but given the small amount of spoilers I've read I actually think they will probably be quite effective when not standing on their own, though if they had been more memorable in standalone fashion the excellent new tracks that do stand alone would probably feel more properly balanced with the remixes, but I agree these suspense pieces will probably get less listens on their own compared to the new and remixed action/emotional/setting pieces.

All in all, just as a first impression, I think Kenji Kawaii did a rather good job of bringing a new soundtrack that feels like the next piece of 00 to the movie in both forms integrating the previous chapter's music with the new like for S2.

As just music to some extent I probably agree as I'm loving the remixes as well as the stand-alone friendly new songs but when linked with the movie until I see it I'm also left thinking that on some level it may also be the nature of the beast with what sounds like such a dramatic movie, a good number of the new tracks are more dramatic and/or low and suspenseful than standalone or "catchy" and yet there are a number of excellent new action and emotional songs so I think for the actual movie the balance might be on the mark but you might be right about the standalone soundtrack on a regular playlist run somewhat favoring the sweet remixes.

Daybreak's Bell
Namida no Mukou
Trust You
Only one I can't find is Unlimited Sky.
Any really good one done for the second OP?
Loved that one too along with Daybreak's Bell and OP3.
Edit: The mask is really totally freaky but the "Ash Like Snow" (OP2) played with violin linked in those youtube videos is pretty cool sounding.

Yeah, the gregorian chant-like stuff has been fantastic to me throughout all the soundtracks. While I listen to the faster songs more often I agree the movie OST has some more very nice new 00 piano pieces to add to the nice ones from TV soundtracks.

I'm not sure if this is entirely off topic, but since its been bugging me I'll throw it out there anyways...

Linkin Park - The Catalyst. Since it's the Gundam Extreme Vs. cover song I figure we can call it a "Gundam Song".

Does anybody else think this sounds almost like Jrock? I really can't put my finger on it, but somehow it does...

Fairly sure that's Mortify, from OST 2 of the the 1st season.

Okay, after finally getting my copy of the movie OST and listening through it, I have to say, taken as a whole, its my favorite of the Gundam 00 OSTs. Listening straight through, I think it flows better than the other sountracks and helps to underscore the weirdness of the ELS and the desperation of that last battle, culminating with the hope of the 00 Qan[T] and the desperate attempt to protect that hope.

Somewhat ironically I found myself really enjoying the horror-style tracks the most. The remixes are really good, but at times they seem to lack the majesty that the originals had. Overall, I'd give it an 8.5.

I believe you mean this. How do I link a video, by the way? Any 00 OST fan should listen to this. Damn. This guy is a real genius.

Actually, I've been wondering that myself. I went to see it in the NYAF, and I don't remember hearing it. But I might have missed it due to all the action taking place. Anyone else want to confirm this?

Change is supposed to be an image song, no? That means it probably isn't played.

Speaking of which, what about the image song that DID play during the movie?

Any word about it?

Her image song seemed too much like prototype to me, at least in terms of the vocal effects. It was okay but I preferred prototype.

A song that's played during the movie would be called an insert song.

I assume you are referring to Chiaki Ishikawa's insert song (mou nani mo whatever)?

That's basically how she always sings...
