She is definitely the best, though for some reason the only tracks of hers I have in my music library are from Macross Frontier and I rarely listen to them. I'll have to get some of her other stuff. But I agree that both Bebop and GitS OSTs are great.

Don't forget Macross Plus.

Great song indeed, but still doesn't compare to this...

I actually don't care for that song very much, it's pretty repetitive and blah.

Lithium Flower, however, is all kinds of awesome.

leXX 04-28-2009 06:16 PM

See? I win.

Rogue Nine 04-28-2009 07:26 PM

But wait, I have more Kajiura goodness!

Yukie Kaijura is better. I still like Yoko Kanno though.

leXX 04-29-2009 06:25 AM

So what Kaijura soundtracks would you guys recommend then? I want to check her out.

Aash Li 04-29-2009 09:14 AM

The first .hack//sign album is one of my favourites.

I love that soundtrack. Frontier is pretty solid too.

Listened to all of it, and it's okay, but nowhere near Kanno standard imo. I'll need to listen to it a couple more times though. Stand out tracks for me are 'Valley of Mist' and 'Fear'.

I'm 'acquiring' it. ;)

Edit: I actually own Macross Plus the Ultimate Edition, so I really don't why I never got the soundtrack before. After listening to all of them now, I have to say they are completely awesome. Stand out tracks for me are MYUNG Theme, Voices, Idol Talk, Go Ri A Te, and my favourite is definately Pulse.

Yoko Kanno was pretty good on Macross Frontier but it can't be a composer thread without Iwasaki Taku:

Heh, Niner and I were talking about the Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann soundtrack, and how awesome it is, just last night. ^^

And how pissed off I am that Kamina had to die so early into it. :(

I gotta mention the brilliant Samurai Champloo soundtrack, which is one of my favs too.
