What They Say
From renowned composer Masamichi Amano (SiN: the Movie / Ninja Resurrection /
Princess Nine TV / Ruin Explorers / Urotsukidoji) comes the Original Soundtrack to
one of the best orchestral tracks in anime - Giant Robo!

From the action-packed drama Giant Robo comes the soundtrack that has been hailed
as a landmark title in anime music. Performed by the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra
and composed/conducted by musical legend Masamichi Amano, the Giant Robo
soundtrack is a powerful, sweeping score that ranges from somber to soaring, and
everywhere in between. Complete with liner notes and interviews, the Giant Robo
Original Soundtrack 1 is not to be missed!

The Review!
5 out of 5
Music found in the Giant Robo the Animation, the Day the Earth Stood Still.

This CD comes with a ten-page insert. The first page is the song title list. The next two pages are notes on Giant Robo from producer Yasuhito Yamaki. After this is a full-page black and white picture of Giant Robo. The next two pages are full color pictures of Giant Robo and the other main characters of the show, with a colorful background thrown in to the mix. The next three pages are an interview with the production composer for Giant Robo Mr. Amano and the musical director Mr. Tsuruoka. Last page is credits for the CD.

Well the Warsaw Philharmonic is making another jump into the Anime world. The orchestrations of that world-renowned Phil are fluent in this one of their more impressive works. The music itself is what we have come to expect from the Warsaw Phil, beauty, grace, and a true testament to the necessity of orchestras in this world. The composition of music used in Giant Robo is as to be expected from an anime production of this caliber. The compositions are perfectly placed, and give expression to those characters that they could not give themselves. The use of operatic chants and songs in this CD, make for a very unique style and take on the traditional Anime soundtrack that just boost this one up into a layer of soundtracks that are beyond what our ears are used to hearing. A truly classical European style that gently lifts the spirit and caresses the soul of every listener. Truly the work of a great composer matched with a perfect orchestra.

A small bit of information that also makes this work a true expression of art is the fact that the tracks were recorded in one continuous take. Listening to this CD, because of this fact is more like attending a Warsaw Philharmonic concert than listening to a soundtrack composed for a series. And the art is worth the listen.

I’d have to say truly a work of art

Fangboy says…the sounds that dreams are made of.
