Me, me, me!
I've been listening to ALI PROJECT as long as Kajiura Yuki's music and various projects…if not a bit longer than Kajiura. Well, I still favour Kajiura's music.
Some of their music videos really creep me out though, especially Boukoku Kakusei Catharisis. The song is creepy alone, but I love it.
A Gothic Opera, I suppose
I'm pretty much into this duo, although my experience is limited to their anime contributions. Their style is unique (if a little repetitive at times ), their ballads have the elegance, their upbeat songs have the drive, and Katakura is a great instrumentalist as well, I say he really should make more OSTs. And Arika's voice is amazing to say the least.
My favourite songs by them are Mirai no Eve, Rara Eve Shinseiki, Kinjirareta Asobi, Ankoku Tengoku and Kitei no Tsurugi.
I also adore the entire .hack//roots OST as well as some tracks from Avenger, Marimite and Kaibutsu Oujo
Hell, why not reintroduce the choir that appeared on the orchestral arrange of Catharsis and several tracks on Poison? We've already heard like 1/3 of the tracks in string/orchestral arranges before, so anything to make it actually interesting and different from the originals (not to say unique) would be most welcomed.
I like them!~
I know them longer than I know Yuki-sama
I like the gothic style on their songs, it give me some creepy feeling that I like.
I especially like Ankoku Tengoku because it's the OST of one my favourite anime~
but I found Ali project's vocalist sang in "shiroi ari" (it is her words for her slow and happy voice style) while she often sang in "kuroi ari" (the opposite of shiroi, of course) and I like it too~Peony Pink~
I first discovered their "dark" songs. Then, stumbling upon "Wish", I could hardly believe my ears.
Ankoku Tengoku is one of my faves, too. I also adore Mirai no Eve, Kitei no Tsurugi and Rara Eve Shinseiki. Jigoku no Mon also comes close.
Katana to Saya, which I heard recently, is another really interesting take on a well-known recipe, although the verse oddly sounds catchier than the refrain.
