My favourite OST tracks are Prologue F, High School Life and イヌミミランカ. Those three tracks are probably the “signature” tracks of the show for me and it’s good to finally get to hear them in full. High School Life’s full version was a bit different than I expected though.

This time, the number of vocal tracks nearly equal the BGM ones. Aptly named Triangler (fight on stage) ver. is the Sheryl x Ranka duet of the song, and damn, it would be fun to actually see them “fight” on stage with that song, LOL.

It’s also good to hear the full version of Anata no Oto finally, and it’s a catchy song as I expected. Sheryl’s Yousei and Ranka’s Ao no Ether is also in the album, but I’ve already heard the full versions. Still, it’s good to get the official releases.

There’s also the remixes. Without doubt, Shinkuu no Diamond Crevasse is the official, best version of Diamond Crevasse ever, and it’s good to see they actually gave justice to it with a full track. Ranka’s Do you Remember Love ~ bless the little queen~ doesn’t really evoke much excitement to me, since it’s basically Ranka singing the full version isntead of a excerpt. Aimo O.C. is best described as a “demonized” version of Aimo, and I do think that description fits it the best, considering the context it was made. Wonder what does the O.C mean? “Over Clocked” maybe? Or “Over Charged” ?

Finally, the highlight of the album is THE MEDLEY, “Musume Service Medley”, which is the clean version of the one played at the end of the series. Needless to say, it’s an awesome listen, but I do feel the medley more better in the context of the series. Frankly, the medley song changes got a bit weird to me during the early parts, mostly during the transition to “My Boyfriend is a Pilot” and when “Seikan Hikou” comes in.

Overall, another awesome sound track from this series. Of course, we still have the movie to wait and anticipate much. Man, I hope we get more Sheryl tracks. I still feel there’s not enough pieces from Ranka and Sheryl.

    I just love Yoko Kanno’s great music from Macross Frontier. My favorite song is Lion. Can’t wait to see the live version…

    The medley was total ear-r*pe in my opinion (I was saved since i was salivating over the valkyire fighting).

    Any news on an Aimo version by Maaya Sakamoto? (I can’t get the 15 second version from the Vajra queen out of my head etiher)

    hmm. I am missing that one background theme: A specific piano/chello theme played during the moments when Alto talks about his past or when he (and the first appearance of Brera Sterne) rescued Ranka on that movie island. :(
