What They Say
A collection of music featured in the Captain Tylor OVA series "An Exceptional Episode", "From Here to Eternity", "The Samurai’s Narrow Escape" and "If Only the Skies Would Clear"
This CD comes packaged up for the consumer with a small informative cover insert. The insert contains a song title list, and a break down of each song. The break down includes the song title, What OVA it appears in, and a small synopsis of where the song fits into the story. The insert also includes the English words to the last song on the CD.
This collection brings us back to the more traditional classical-type instrumentals usually found as background music. The tracks each fit their scene perfectly and elicit the feelings that go with that scene from the listener. Whether it be a peaceful picnic, or a military campaign gone awry, the songs put you there within a few seconds of playing. If anything I’d say my main complaint is that the songs are too short, some of them just barely making it to a minute. A few select songs also include a prelude in Japanese taken directly from the episode in which they appeared, something this reviewer thinks is a nice personal touch to add to the feel of the music.
I ‘d have to say that this collection is good background music to work to, it touches the listener in all the right moments, yet has enough upbeat numbers to keep one from getting depressed.
Fangboy says…Good sounds for the soul, definitely a keeper…maybe just make some of the songs a bit longer.
