... and yes. I still think the director had the right idea muting the flute in both the middle and the ending. I am still angry at the album version.

YKWorshiper

I like Yuki
I prelistened the first ten tracks of Fena on YouTube. It isn't a bad OST, and has its sparkling and funny-ish moments (for a YK OST) and a freshness to it (bringing Dragon Quest to my mind on occasion), but it failed to woo my attention enough to commit myself to a purchase.

Well, I have bought only a few YK OSTs that date from past decade: the entire F/Z, Spring Song, the entire SAO + OS + most of Alicization, and Princess Principal.

They're all pretty good, well OS and PP I've played through only once. F/Z is one of my most played YK albums.

In YK's music, maybe what I like the most are percussion, synth work, rhythms, melodies, operatic melodrama, weird arrangements, darkness/sense of dread, and sentimentality. Conversely, too long compositions, funny compositions, or too minimalist or more mainstream compositions usually don't produce enjoyment. To me, it's a plus if a piece is generic if that means "the familiar YK stuff/approach".

Anyways, even if you don't want to commit to a purchase you could probably finish the OST on youtube. I feel it checks all of your boxes really (though to varying extents)... except maybe "dankness" (of Fate/Zero).
