What They Say
Sword-bearing assassins and demons force Kyoshiro Mibu to reawaken his long-forgotten samurai past and his alter ego, the powerful slayer, "Demon Eyes" Kyo, but he'll still need all the allies and mystical weapons he can find in order to battle the evil Nobunaga. Enhancing the fast-pace setting to this medieval adventure is the "Samurai Deeper Kyo Original Soundtrack" with its 28 vibrant tracks of bold and defiantly radical instrumentals provided by the Jukaiku Kyouso Orchestra and two highly spirited vocals, "Blue Requiem," the opening theme and "Love Deeper," the closing song, performed by Yuiko Tsubokura (Bubblegum Crisis, Kimagure Orange Road)

The Review!
There is a 6-second track on here that isn't the eyecatch. The eyecatch track is actually longer than 6-seconds. It starts, it splurts, it ends. ARGH! That aside, this CD has some great dramatic music and I really enjoyed the variety of songs that I was presented with, but some of the tracks stopped abruptly without real endings, and when it comes to the flow of an album, nothing gets under my skin like that. Please, take 2 or 3 more seconds and finish your song! I liked the use of electric guitars, and the rock element was very much present in this samurai drama. You can see this even more in the soundtracks to Peacemaker Kurogane and Samurai Champloo. One of the cute things was the ED, Love Deeper, sung by Yuiko Tsubokura. I love it when the more rough-edged singers get exposure over here, even if it is just a small ED to a B-title. Rock lives!!
Where I took it, and where it took me: Its a short outing at under 45 minutes, so I didn't have much time to take it anywhere. It started, it jarred me with abruptness, it ended.
Standout track: Sad Story - This was a solid track, full of beauty and emotion.
Skip-it track: Sabutaitoru - It was only 6 seconds long. If you listen to it with a fade on the end, you almost miss the whole track! A waste.
