The OST is out. It's pretty good, even if a bit of a standard Kanno fare.

The funny thing was Origa singing hip-hop. 8)

So why do people fight, anyway?
Perhaps the meaning of existence lies within their will to fight.
People feel a sense of accomplishment through battle.
And itís also a fact that the ones actually fighting are never perceived as being tainted.

I think the "Sniper's theme" isn't even from the SSS movie.

Anyone has the booklet scanned?

Temptest and Sniper's Theme are both from Second GIG. Snyper (as it appeared in the credits for 2nd GIG) did play in the series, but it was also used for the closing theme when it was reaired on television. One thing that I noticed is that I don't ever recall hearing Aramaki's theme... or the music from when they hacked up the cable after the virus infiltration.

Well, I have the booklet, and here's an interpretation of part of the opening stanza that I've been tweaking. Still not metaphorical enough for me, but it'll do for now::

Quote:
Gliding along the sky, the searchlights of stardust
is the blade of steel that tears up my wings
I've died in battle on countless occassions
And have always come back in the end
My heart is everlasting

Is it from that SAC episode (2nd?) where Aramaki goes to England and does the nifty wine gallery money laundering thing?

I believe you are right! Heck, a quarter of this OST are songs that weren't released before... :/

i really like the songs "replica" "date of rebirth" and "take a little hand"

it's nice to hear youko kanno singing a whole song like that (as opposed to where she's normally just one of several voices)

and "sniper's theme" is still great

Heartsdales

Mr. Prophet, The hip-hop segment of "Player" was not done by Origa (thank god) it was done by a Japanese hip-hop group called "Heartsdales". I personaly think it takes away from the song the song..... Both "Player" and "Date of Rebirth" are cool, but a bit repetitive. Oh well...the movie is awesome.

And lommm, Yoko Kanno doesn't sing. She just writes songs. Date of Rebirth was sung by Origa, "Replica" by Ilaria Graziano and "Take a Little Hand" by Gabriela Robin.

Talking

The OST for this is great. The 2 Origa songs are a welcome addition and lets face it, Ms. Kanno can't do bad music. She might miss the mark here and there but her music is always enjoyable.
One complaint though. There's at least 1 music missing in the OST, a different version of "Zero Signal" that is heard just before Motoko breaks in to the lab where she stumbles on Batou.
I managed to get it by extracting the audio track from the DVD menu where it serves as BGM. Also a CD quality of "player" in TV size would be nice.
And would it kill them to put the Heartsdales riff lyrics in there?

Still, one hell of a great addition to the GITS and Yoko Kanno music collections.

YK music

I agree. I find that if I don't care for a Yoko Kanno song at first, all I have to do is listen to it a few more times and it becomes my favorite song ever....odd.

How can you not like the Sniper song? It's probably the best track on the entire OST

This is just a rumor sparked by the lack of information on Gabriela Robin. It is true that there is no solid evidence to proove that she is NOT Yoko Kanno, just as there is no solid evidence to prove that she is. Read more about it here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gabriela_Robin

I have been reading up some more on this Yoko Kanno / Gabriela Robin thing.
The more I read, the more it seems that Yoko Kanno IS actualy Gabriela.....
w/e....If she is she will admit it sometime.......or someone will find out and expose the secret.

it might be an off-topic but recently I've discovered a very nice Russian/Ukraine/Eastern Europe/slavic song that kinda similar to Origa style

it is called Polovtsian Dances ~Trance ver. OZ mix~ from the game Over Zenith by Konami...

everyone can sample it by searching the OZ game trailer on youtube

Russian singer + Japanese talent composer = award winning formula ^_^

make me want for more x.x
