Best soundtrack to an anime ever. Prove me wrong
>Protip. you cant
Agreed, but best song?
It's not even Yano's best.
what is if not for this masterpiece. I mean her resume is fucking extensive
Guilty Crown was better.
Sakamichi no Apollon.
who cares if it's not original, it's like a fucking The Pillows Greatest Hits music video.
From last year
What do I win
YES. I don't care what anyone says. Best OST. Best anime.
>Prove me wrong
wasn't this an autoban on some board for a while?
such a lame way to make a thread.
>Prove me wrong
That's not Simoun.
I wouldn't go that far but.. It's probably the best soundtrack.
This man of African descent knows whats up.
Champloo and Bebop have the best anime sountracks and that's a fact.
Yes. both Departure and Impression are rock fucking solid.
Isn't that more of a "Best Hits" collection?
Hydeout Production: B-Sides
Jam right here. Tribal goes great with future dystopia. It's human kind going back to its roots.
Get over yourself. there's absolutely no original content or thread on 4chan
Yeah, one of my favorite artist and the one who got me into REAL hip-hop.
Except that's wrong, you fucking retard.
Same here. From then it was just a matter of time. Now I listen to stuff like Fly Lo, Bugseed, Abstrakt Idea, Pete Rock, J Dilla, Marcus D . . . The list could go on and on really. Nujabes opened the door and kindly showed me the way.
The same happened to me, i listen to Cyne(Cise Starr, Akin)Bop Alloy(Substantial, Marcus D),Thomas Prime, Haruka Nakamura and so many other things thanks to Nujabes, like a domino effect.
I listen to Tonedeff and the Cunninlynguists as well as other chinese cartoon music.
But I still love Nujabes
I love this soundtrack.
Indeed. All those guys do it big. You know, before Spiritual State was announced, I had gotten used to the fact that we weren't going to get anymore music from a legend like him. When it was announced and I heard the samples for what was to be on it, it brought back such a flood of emotions.
No such thing as a best soundtrack ever.
You should judge a soundtrack, not by how it compares to other pieces, but by how appropriate it is for the scene and the movie/show/anime/w.e.
That being said:
I know! I got the same feel when i listened to "Let Go" in Haruka Nakamura's new album "Melodica".
It's like he's still making music from "Beyond" death.
Shh, let the plebs play in their mud.
Have you tried listening to Midicronica and Shinsight Trio? Blazo and DJ Okawari are also related.
If only they got paid more money for their amazing works
Shit, I never noticed before that they're chanting the characters' names.
>You should judge a soundtrack, not by how it compares to other pieces, but by how appropriate it is for the scene and the movie/show/anime/w.e.
FLCL wins then, they directed the scenes according to the songs.
Let Go and Lamp are beautiful songs. Truth be told, I didn't know about this album until you pointed it out. Holding back tears on my end. Thank you. Buying it now.
I bet you fags who praise CB's soundtrack don't even know how John Coltrane is.
I haven't listened to the others though.
I recommend besides the ones i mentioned already Blee, Nicholas Cheung, Fat Jon and Shirosky.
>tfw no jazz legends anime
Where can I download it?
I don't like the soundtracks for Bebop and FLCL
Bartender has some classy jazz sometimes.
No. Does he make anime OSTs?
>my spoon is moving on it's own!
I loved that one too, underrated anime and ost imo.
Midicronica are the guys who made the final SC ED, and this is their latest album's video:
I love the guy's face in the second part
>Implying it's not the greatest
you people are all clueless
AIJOU YUUJOOU WHY IS THIS ED SO TERRIBLE?
Is the rest of the anime any good? What do you like about it, personally?
>don't even know how John Coltrane is.
I bet he's feeling Kind Of Blue
Anyone know about Onra? He's hip hop, but much of his stuff is more funky oriental stuff. Bit different from the chill ship hop people are recommending here, but great nonetheless.
It's relaxing. Same emotion you get while reading yokohama kaidashi kikou with some backstories while you learn almost nothing about drinks. I don't recommend more than two episodes per day though.
You need to get with the program and join WATASHI-TACHI NO HAMANIIIIII.
can you be any more casul? babby's first jazzmen.
I see, i just put them in my music backlog.
Not him but i like it a lot, it's not for everyone.
The music is great too but yet again, not for everyone. Everything's a little too elegant for some people.
You know why it's so good?
Because it was used as a storytelling tool instead of something tacked on that you need.
It worked, and that's why you think it's the best ever.
Berserk's was fucking cool. Otherwise there's really no rubric or anything to judge an ost by.
It would be easier to try and find a 'best' op/ed and we can't even do that.
go back to wherever the fuck you came from faggot.
Non-native speaker? You seem to not understand the point of the construction "don't even ___"
I like it.
My favorite jazz musicians are Sun Ra and Grant Green. Especially Grant, love me that jazz guitar.
Besides the point, everyone and their mother knows who John Coltrane is, hard to grow up not hearing his name.
I never managed to watch SoA, is it too Josei? Or it's just the art?
Remember we are in the 2000's generation now where Daft Punk's lack of creativity and Miley Cyrus's shit get all the money.
It's true though, people like Miles, Coltrane, Parker and others are the entry level jazzers. They're the DBZ, Naruto, OP, and other shounen of the world of jazz. Not that theyir music isn't good, but any experienced player or listener will tell you that.
I bet you don't know who Otomo Yoshihide is and yet one of the most influential Jazz musicians from japan.
I love the first Bebop soundtrack btw, the others are ok but the first is amazing.
Grant Green is pretty good idle moments is a fucking great album. Wes as well.
And you continue to show that you don't know what "even" means.
Just because they are entrylevel doesn't mean it's bad or casual.
You can be entrylevel and have quite a refined taste while there's also entrylevel that only shit is better than it.
Music is great, too bad the writing was shit.
Lack of creativity?
Random Access Memories is my favorite DP album just ahead of Discovery. Every generation lacks creativity when it comes to wanting to make money. There are things that work and things that don't.
Indeed, I find most stuff with a jazz guitar is quite nice.
And lets not talk about stuff being entry level. This isn't /mu/.
you act like that's a bad thing. It's what they have contributed to jazz that makes them important. you're fucking retarded if you think they are casual.
I didn't say they were bad, did you even read my post? I'm saying that while they're masterful musicians, they're also the poster boys of the genre, like the Big Three to anime.
This, I love all three of those artists equally but when someone says a statement like that it is like someone saying "All those people praising Twin Peaks have not seen Breaking Bad" on /tv/. All three of those artists are household names, heck I would even through Jarrett, Mingus, Coleman and Ellington into that pile. Slight obscurity is on the Pharoah Sanders, Horace Silver, Sun Ra and Stan Getz borderline really.
You are comparing naruto to coltrane.
Atleast compare NGE or Sakura Card Captors. Hell, even Gundam. Mazinger Z.
John Coltrane was an amazing jazz musician.
The big three are popular because they're pure shit that cater to the base desires of idiots.
Chick Corea and Mingus a best
Thelonius and Django Reinhardt are cool too
Guess this is just a /mu/ jazz thread now.
>implying Yuji Ohno's Lupin soundtracks aren't leagues better than this pop trash
The problem with the example of the big three and comparing that with Jazz is that Jazz tends to be a genre where talent = fame for a alot of it. There are very few Jazz musicians that are ultra popular that do not deserve praise, this isn't hip-hop or metal we are talking about. Heck the only one I can think of that matches the big 3 stereotype for Jazz is Kenny G and I don't even think he counts as Jazz at all.
Coltrane is an amazing player, I'm comparing his level of popularity in jazz like Naruto in anime, which is turning out to be a mistake. Anyway, he's popular. That's all I'm saying. That's why I found >>102043873 peculiar.
They are good but not on the level of alot of the stuff on the first Bebop OST, Zenigata Rock is a fucking tune though: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tgWTvSGKf8M
>stupid unnecessary time skip ending
Overly dramatic and I only enjoyed the playing sessions.
Even the musicwas mostly just stuff like Lullaby of Birdland and not original Yano pieces.
And NewJazz aswell.
I am sorry I can't hear you over JOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOJO
Since you still don't get it, I'll explain my post to you. Saying "don't even know who Coltrane is" is not in any way an implication that Coltrane is obscure. The whole POINT is that he is popular. It's basically equivalent to saying that they haven't listened to any real jazz in their life.
Smooth jazz is the fanservice shows of jazz. Pleasing to the senses, lacking any real depth or quality. Kenny G is shit, yet he gets loads of money for his cheap music.
Manhattan Joke is easily on the level of Jazz standards.
I'm very disappointed.
But Coltrane IS real jazz.
Naruto isn't real anime.
>pleasing to the senses
no, its not
>no eureka 7
shame on you guys
>Naruto isn't real anime
As much as you and I and much of site hates it, definition makes Naruto 100% anime.
He's saying Coltrane is pretty popular by name. you don't really have to know much about jazz to know or have heard of Coltrane.
I don't mind some Smooth Jazz from time to time like Boney James, Keiko Matsui or Hirotaka Izumi but I tend to like my Jazz very raw and dissonant like Die Like a Dog Quartet, Jaco Pastorious' free Jazz live solos or Thelonious Monk:
The first few songs are, but once you realize it's all the same shit over and over, it's all shit. Take Dave Koz for example.
Kanno was at her best when working with her now-former husband, Hajime Mizoguchi.
Two tracks they worked on together:
At this point i'm convinced that the people who don't like Naruto have never watched/read it or just outright have shit taste.
Naruto is a pretty good anime/manga with great characters, you just hate it because it's popular.
Are there actually people that are comparing A Love Supreme to fucking Naruto? Is that's what's happening here? Is that really what /a/ has come to?
I woudn't even mind Coltrane being compared to Nausicaä or even fucking Eva. But Naruto, really?
What's next? Are we gonna compare Les Demoiselles d'Avignon to kawaii waifus?
Where do you think you are?
>I played ouendan before I knew that it was from E7
Imagine my face when I saw the OP
I saw 60 episodes and played atleast 4 of it's games. I used to like it, but then again, it was so full of plotholes, bad art and overused themes that I dropped it.
we hate it because it's really easy to hate.
By popularity. Naruto's as well known in anime as Coltrane is in jazz.
You're forgetting something.
By anatomy. Humans are similar to deer because they have hearts.
thus humans = deer
Picasso, Monet and Van Gogh are the big three of art. What represents Naruto etc are up to your choosing.
Never said they are the same. I said that a similarity between them is that they are popular within their respective mediums.
>comparing jazz to anime
Yeah. Yeah alright. Why don't we compare fucking sitcoms to 19th century literature. That seems like a reasonable thing to do. Very useful for any kind of discussion.
Go fuck yourself /a/.
Not bait, it's not "easy to hate" that doesn't make any sense and it get's better, waay better.
Haven't watched it, never got my attention is it any good?
Nice. The song's fucking catchy, I can pretty much hum the entire thing and I never saw E7, only read it.
As for Naruto games, I've played one, I think it's the most recent, snakeman is pretty cool guy.
Underaged, reported, called cops and alerted NSA.
I can't believe you like the same music I do and still defend Naruto and type get's.
Protip: If an anime takes 100 episodes to get good, you wasted atleast 40 hours of your life.
That's not how you spell Eureka 7
>my jutsu is flashier than yours!
>you get to come back from death, and you, and you, and you
>pointless christian symbolism
>god awful art
Kaiji is best soundtrack. This is fact.
Not him, but
>my EVA is flashier than yours!
>you get to be part of Lilith, and you, and you, and you
>pointless christian symbolism
>two-minute stills and last two episodes
I don't like Wolf's Rain, great soundtrack but awful main characters and a generic story that meanders to nowhere special.
I never said it's a masterpiece, also i watched the first season when it just came out and i was younger so maybe it was better for me, i might be a little biased because i feel very conected to both main characters (i'm an orphan, always the weak, no friends, etc.).
It's nice, not a masterpiece but a nice shounen in my opinion.
I didn't really like Eva, it was just okay.
Okay, you've had your fun. Let us talk about music now.
Proofread your shit before you type again, faggot. Typical projecting beta liking Naruto, no surprises there.
There are tons of shounen. Literally. Stop being a nostalgiafag, that's only allowed partially for DBZ.
Though I say that, I really, really liked EVA.
I can never hear HOWLING without this now.
Nigga I'm listening to that shit right now
You could watch Hokuto no Ken? That is an excellent shounen that has orphans. Multiple orphans, enough orphans to fill a large Condo with.
Running in the 90's makes everything better.
Okay then, i was being honest but whatever.
Lucky☆Star, Hyouka, Nana, Bartender, AKB0048, Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko, Tamako Market, Ginga Kikoutai Majestic Prince, Beck, Shounen Onmyouji and Sankarea are some of the great anime soundtracks that come to mind.
As much as Lucky Shit managed to damage the industry, I'll admit it had a couple of pretty good soundtracks, some for being relaxing and some for remixing.
also shinsekai yori, tatami galaxy soundtracks are pretty great
Denpa teki na kanojo also had amazing ost
...And the theme tune, still one of the catchiest and most fun OP's in anime IMO.
i gotta find out who killed my daadddddddd
It's not a show, but I really enjoyed the soundtrack for Paprika. I think they used the vocaloid really well and some of the melodies are incredibly fitting, my favorite being Parade.
Norigami's using Miku pretty well, not SUPERCELL's best but it's nice.
Susumu Hirasawa did the OSTs for almost all of Satoshi Kon's stuff.
The Lucky☆Star ost is much better heard by itself than in the anime. Like itsumo no kanji.
Never watched it either.
Definitely, Parade and The Girl In Byakkoya were fantastic
I used to not be a big fan of Kajiura but after listening to Noir and .hack//SIGN OST, I have to acknowledge this woman. She's really fucking good.
I beg to differ, motherfucker.
It's pretty damn good for a 1:30 hour OVA. It has best Karate girl
My nigga. One of my favorite OST's.
>implying http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSe8D2wfGKI wasn't more influential than anything
And best fly slaughter
Have any anime movie soundtracks topped this OST? Probably, but I can't think of any immediately
Pretty much all of them.
It was decent by the numbers shonen pretimeskip. Meaning that it wasn't really good. It just wasn't bad either. After the timeskip it declined to shit.
I can see why kids could like itProbably because I liked it as a kid. But its really not that good by any real standard.
And this is coming from someone who I can almost guarantee has been watching it for longer than you have.
Spice&Wolf has such a comfy OST
Can we all agree that Sawano is terrible?
Yeah if you're a faggot.
This pleases my soul
Akira, GitS, most Hisaishi stuff, Wolf Children.
Cowboy Bebop is top 5 for sure
But Giant Robo is #1 easy
Any soundtrack made by yoko kanno is automatic top 10.
>been watching it for longer than you have
I've watched every single piece of Naruto animation including OVAs, movies and omake.
Even Lee's spin-off.
You watched everything twice?
Just gonna leave this here.
A handful of really great songs, but the rest is pretty lackluster.
Pic related is Sawano's best OST.
bebop has a good OST for an anime, but Champloo is simply the best
He's great. Downloaded his album "Chinoiseries" and listened through on a car ride home at night. Would highly recommend.
He's the most formulaic composer I've ever heard.
Listen to Madlax and El Cazador.
All of the old episodes, and like 50 into shippuden.
I stopped liking it at like episode 40ish. The show is shit that they did everything possible to make it drag out for as long as they could.
The show might have actually been good if it was A LOT fucking shorter. The first episodes were great. It was a pretty fleshed out world, problem was the inevitable failing of the writing when it actually tried to produce a story.
It's like the first arc+filler of bleach. Most people agree it was pretty good.
Utena has some really interesting/unique music, didn't really like the anime though
More than Hans Zimmer?
I like Zimmer and Sawano, but I have terribad and pleb tastes.
I should've specified "from Japan". I know who Zimmerman is, but I don't really care for his music.
Madoka Magica and Fate/Zero are better imo. Get over your nostalgia.
Hell yeah dude. I was just about to post Madoka. The Big O has a pretty bad ass soundtrack also.
If anyone takes the price then it would be Joe Hisaishi.
But I must say I have been listening to the score for Jin Roh for 2 weeks now and I am still not bored with it.
the first op was nice but I can only remember 1-2 of the tracks besides it.
The soundtrack is beautifuru in general, even the dub isn't bad at all.
I enjoyed it regardless of some stereotypical characters.
The thing is that i don't do what you are doing right now which is rationalise everything, specially art.
So i see things in a very different way than you do.
ほしぼしのはら is my favourite (and, therefore, best) track.
I preferred SnA's jazz to CB. Had some quite nice tracks on one of the albums, forgotten which one though.
I think we're done here
Yes, we are.
get that shitty low tempo J-pop shit outta here.
i already said were done here
Bliss. Thanks, man.
>Being a faggot on the internet
Magi have a great ost and no one know that because they never use it.
n-no one posted the fucking best one.
are ya fucking crazy?
Anon that isnt Hajime no ippo.
why would you demonstrate what youre negatively describing in your post?
Bebop is one of the few OSTs I can keep going back to long after last watching the series. It is amazing in how well well it does simplicity, it excels at a more complex approach. Even without knowing the context of each song, you immediately get it. I'm sure some OSTs have surpassed individual tracks, As a whole though (without relying on classical pieces for filling), it is one of the few that are a solid 10/10 on its own.
as calming as the visuals, if that's possible
such a chill anime
Or, even easier, any OST for a MADHOUSE produced show. All of them.
That poster is hanging above my desk for a reason.
Finished bebop awhile back.
Heard the movie wasn't connected to the ending.
Decided not to watch it.
Should I give it a watch?
I like this one
the movie comes a couple episodes before the ending. No one is completely sure between which eps, but its just a long episode really. I enjoyed it, it's a nice Halloween-ish watch.
It took this long for someone to post Horizon?
For shame, /a/.
thank you. Also GiTS but yeah, Kanno
Lain had few tracks, but they were all amazing.
Only correct answer.
Cowboy Bebop's soundtrack is genuinely fucking good though. Not just nostalgia. I agree that PMMM and Fate/Zero have two of the best soundtracks.
F-fine, you want sad?
This reminds me of Kikujiro Summer main theme.
Well the chords are pretty moving on their own, and you can only have so many melodies over the same chords. Still, the first parts are pretty in line. Kikujiro has a lot more variety, though, because Dear You is the basis to a lot of Higurashi's themes.
Samurai Champloo is much much better.
SAC is way better overall.
AoEx's OST is better in my opinion. They are both 10/10 though.
I don't know OP
Yep. It is really good. But calling it the best soundtrack is just your nostalgia talking.
The only thing I can think of that rivals Bebop is Mushishi
Iwasaki should've done KLK's OST.
Does that make them less good or something? That's not a sarcastic nor rhetorical question; I'm not that well listened-to when it comes to jazz. My favorite is Kenny Burrell, but I don't have much to compare to.
i fucking love that song
I've never listened to Chet Baker, but since I mentioned Kenny Burrell after your post without having read it, I will have to take it as an urgent recommendation.
Are you crazy, Sawano did his best ever on KLK.
>tfw listening to jazz and browsing /a/ in the early morning hours
Wait, what? Madoka had fairly mediocre and repetitive music. The movies were an enormous improvement.
Fuck yes, someone else with taste.
Not that I don't love based Kanno too.
You know it's true
You don't even UNTZ UNTZ UNTZ
I rike Freddie Hubbard and Sonny Rollins though
I've had this in my backlog for so long. You've brought me a step closer to actually watching it.
Whether you love or hate Naruto i dont care at all, but it actually has a really good soundtrack.
Good stuff right here.
your shit taste is the proof
Why does everyone forget about katanagatari
I agree. The series' soundtrack is nice and memorable, but the movies' soundtrack had more quality tracks and were more developed.
If they release the right tracks, OST 2 might be able to top Unicorn for me. The Nudist Beach theme and the choir version of KILL7la切ル are amazing.
this is objectively the single best song ever created
Beboptards are so fucking annoying.
Also what this >>102040946 fuck said.
>tfw too shit to play the "Tank!" bassline
