Review:

A good instrumental cd that includes all the BGM from the 1st ova(?). (I have to rewatch the ova's to make sure). Also includes the great instrumental track titled Ai no Kusabi (the BGM when Riki tells Riki that he's Iason's pet for the 1st time ). Out of all the other versions from other cd's, I love this one the most. This cd contains the insrumental ED and only has 2 vocal tracks (1 & 16), but unfortunately, they're not any good (it's the melody I disliked). Please down load a sample (search at the end of the page for a link) of it to see if you like it yourself. But other than that, this cd is worth getting. The rest are filled with instrumentals and drama tracks, but the other cd's might be better.

Review:

I find this cd more enjoyable than others, but in truth, all these cd's are very similair in the fact that they're mostly insrumental (or new age), has 1 or 2 drama parts, has a different verion of Ai no Kusabi (the instrumental tracks), and are all good. This one has no vocal tracks and includes a flute/violin version of Ai no Kusabi. I'm still not sure if any of these tracks contain any BGM, but I'm pretty certain.

Review:

This cd is basically a sndtrk to ova 2 (gotta check out the ova's to be certain) with a few other instrumental tracks thrown in. I personally enjoyed the other versions of Ai no Kusabi, but this cd has the BGM to that dramatic climax at the end when Iason & Riki were surrounded by fire. But like always, it's a hard toss up to say which cd is better than the others.

Review:

What a great cd! New Age music with a sci-fi scent to it. Mostly instrumentals with a few seconds/minutes of diolgue from Iason? ETERNAL is absalutely wonderful. I felt dazed (the good kind) while listening to this angelic male voice singer. Unfortunatly, none of these tracks are BGM from the anime. So don't expect to reconize any of these tracks from the ova. I'm glad I got this one though :-)

Review:

These are a collection of various tracks from all other previous cd's from the series, but all remixed. It's nice change of pase. Most tracks are remixed with violins & such. But I'm not sure if these cd's are sold seperately from the Limited Edition Box Collection.

Review:

This box set contains 6 cd in total and includes the following cd's:

Ai no Kusabi soundtrack
Sense of Crisis
Sympathy
Ambivalence
Sound Selections of Ai no Kusabi (2 cd's)
So yeah, this box set is really worth it since I've heard that some of these cd's are out of print by now. Highly recommended.
