Macross Frontier O.S.T. I Nyan Furo

Macross Frontier OST

The weird subtitle aside, awesome O.S.T. is awesome.

The O.S.T. is packed full with songs by both Sheryl and Ranka, although Sheryl gets more of the time since she has more songs. The best part of the OST has gotta be the 3 “Sheryl on Stage” songs, done back to back, giving the impression that it was recorded live at one of her gigs. They sure did a good job in to including the ambient noise which also captures a lot of feelings in the recording than the clean CD version. I daresay I’d be looping them instead of the clean ones. 「Infinity」 and 「Diamond Crevasse」 is also included as well towards the end of the disc. If I haven’t made it public yet, then let me just say that 「Infinity」 is god damn awesome as well, especially now that I have the CD quality version of it.

As for Ranka, the 「What ’bout my Star? @ Formo」 is basically the extended version of the one she sings in episode 5, with some accompanying vocals by Sheryl at the extended parts of the track. Aimo is included, in both short and long versions, and interestingly, the long version of Aimo is called 「Aimo ~Tori no Hito」. Another allusion to Macross Zero yet again. The Nyan nyan and Ninjin songs are also included, sadly both of them are the same length as the ones used during the TV series. I would’ve loved a full version of 「Ninjin loves you yeah!」

Coming to the BGM’s by Yoko Kanno; 「Big Boys」, 「Private Army」 and 「Take Off」 are the ones that I really liked the most. The rest are of course, awesome as well. There was also a S.M.S theme song in the CD as well, man that one really made me laugh out loud, thanks to the lyrics and the singing XD.

Overall, awesome OST is awesome! Remember, ninjin loves you Yeah!

    The ost is very nice and most of the ranka songs were too short.Too bad that “Watashi no Kare wa Pilot” was not included in the ost.

    I can’t believe the opening BGM from most of the episodes (goes under the initial voiceover) is not included… it’s a clever orchestral rearrangement of Triangular and I find myself whistling it often. I hope it’s on OST2.
