Yoko Kanno <3 (Favourite Soundtracks/Composers)

Yoko Kanno is easily my favourite anime composer. I think she is just a genius, and I can't get enough of her music. Ever since I first heard the brilliant Cowboy Bebop soundtrack, I've been a HUGE fan.

1. Velveteen
2. Torukia
3. Psychedelic Soul
4. Living Inside The Shell
5. I Can't Be Cool
6. Player
7. Lithium Flower
8. Stamina Rose
9. I Do
10. Cyber Bird
11. Rise
12. Run Rabbit Junk
13. Where Does This Oceon Go
14. Origa - Inner Universe
15. GET9
16. Some Other Time
17. Take A Little Hand
18. Dear John
19. Spotter
20. Tempest

Cowboy Bebop

1. Tank
2. Ask DNA
3. Cosmic Dare
4. The Egg and I
5. Pushing the Sky
6. Yo Pumpkin Head
7. What Planet Is This?
8. 7minutes
9. Gotta Knock a little Harder
10. Blue
11. Autumn In Ganymede
12. Call Me Call Me
13. Ave Maria
14. Mushroom Hunting
15. Chicken Bone
16. Wo Qui Non Coin
17. See You Space Cowboys

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.

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.

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.

Helpful! 
Don't forget Kanno's work on FullMetal Alchemist! (that's the only work by her I've heard...)

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. ^^

MEGA HUGE GIANT ENORMOUS GREAT BIG SPOILER!!
spoiler:
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.
