Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann is out of the question because film "score" doesn't really fit with rap. :< . have you heard John Williams, James Horner, Alan Silvestri, Howard Shore, James Newton Howard, Thomas Newman, Hans Zimmer, Harry Gregson-Williams, Ennio Morricone, Trevor Rabin, etc use rap in their score? . It is suck that this one has some beautiful operatic tune =( that was ruined by excessive rap.

5 Centimeters per Second is good because I like Omoide wa Tooku no Hibi theme and Kiss. The rest of the track is beautiful piano tune too.


Terra He - Toward the Terra - EPIC EPIC EPIC EPIC EPIC EPIC!! OPERATIC EPIC! OPERATIC CHORUS! Omgz0r orgasm !!

Aoi Hoshi from 1:47
Shiroki Kuuro
Hatenaki Kouya
Kanata he - Opera choruss! YES YES~!
Nureta Tsubasa - Opera hymn ?
Fishis and Kanmuri wo Idaku Mono - more hymn stuff!!! very similar to vangelis style!!

pure awesome

still need to listen to the rest before I can vote :<

Just because big names from a certain genre don't utilize methods from other genres doesn't make them superior or a standard of what is good or bad. While I agree that Libera Me From Hell would have been a much better song without the Engrish rap, it can be done right.

This is, of course, subjective. I think the message of Libera suits the soundtrack entirely but the delivery (specifically the Engrish, not the rap) kills it.

About "Libera me from Hell" specifically, it could have been one of the most memorable beats I've ever heard from an anime in my lifetime, truth be told, but the rap really obscures how amazing the composition could have been especially how redundant the lyrics appear at the second half of the song. I would have been more amazed at where the song could have been taken instrumentally rather than the vocals doing most of the heavy lifting, carrying the song throughout and even dragging the pace down. You'd be pretty surprised how devastated I was to find out how the whole song was after I sampled what I absorbed from episode 27 (imagine me looping that piece in episode 27 because I did something similar to Art du sabre from Shakugan no Shana 2 ).

Without a done, the Engrish or rap could have been done much better and worked, but sadly, it wasn't imo.

(Although yes, "Libera Me" from Hell, was kinda ruined by the rap beats, I still think it somehow fits though, I mean, this isn't Star Wars or LoTR, and doesn't require Howard Shore's or John William's touch.)

I made an executive decision. I didn't hear any objections at the time.

Maybe the next one can be called "Best Original Anime Score" instead, in order to avoid exactly that kind of situation? Though I just admit it is pretty rare.

Preemptive vote for Soul Eater as Best of 2008.

(I know it's waaay too early to say such things, and even in the wrong thread! Still, I love the music so far.)

Well, I suppose you could add Hajime Kikuchi's true tears OST to that preemptive list, if it exists.

Try to listen to the OST of "Bakumatsu Kikansetsu Irohanihoheto" I loved the scores for the battles and the ED song. Its easily one of the best soundtracks for 2007. But since it's not included in the poll above, I voted Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann.

EF not winning is blasphemy. Did anyone who didn't vote for EF actually listen to the stuff Tenmon wrote? Not only are the pieces great as standalone music, but the they're also extremely well timed and choreographed (check out 'Countdown', for example, where the ups and downs of the melody flows perfectly with the conversation on screen).

^ Truth.

While I can understand why Gurren Lagann's soundtrack would be so highly rated (pieces were original and rather atypical, it was able to fit a myriad of situations, it was able to invoke a variety of emotions, and come on, who doesn't like "ROW ROW, FIGHT DA POWA!"), Tenmon's work with ef was all that and much more. Well, without the rowing and power-fighting.
