OST3 on youtube and nyancats. Sadly no scans (or logs, poop, hopefully another rip appears).

They didn't use "RUMOR" for that vocal track. :( I guess the lament is more descriptive of it but eh - as for the actual track I actually really like the harpsichord flavor. "Rumours de Solitude" is instead the literal Endless Solitude theme/track.

"Amazing Artist!!" is cute, I actually think it worked better in the show than on its own (and I was expecting it to be the opposite). The main parts are very Venari strigas-Alina Grey ver- and I really like the direct quote of "Wings of MAGIUS" after the breakdown. In the end though, it just doesn't go anywhere.
The new part in "Colapso da arte" in the first half makes it so much better since in the show it (jumped from 0:22 to 1:12 so it) was just constant buildup/release on repeat for 2 minutes.

Even though they might be a bit much in succession, I really like all the denpa/AI/Sana tracks - particularly how they develop in their 2nd halves. This actually might be a thing with the majority of Magia Record OST for me? "craves trust" also ~grabs~ me only in the 2nd half. (Speaking of this one - I can't be the only one who automatically goes to Fate/Zero main theme when this track starts, lol.)

Wonder if the synth violins in "SanAId" were a deliberate choice since it involves artificial inteligence or a different reason/issue. "sanaid" shows up as latvian for "words" in google translate so maybe that's what it is? I can't find an exact match though so no idea where Google is getting it from. v( '')v
The track and its title are a little weird(or inconsistent) in that this BGM is also used in the last episode for a sentimental Iroha/Yachiyo scene - weird considering the specific Sana and AI in the title. Maybe they change the BGM for this scene on BD? Would be nice for my OCD ass.

"bygone days" is a surefine arrange of the original "repeat days" track. "one's place" is sweet, too.

Updated the episode listing on the previous page.

OST4 tracks
01. origin waltz (1:58)
02. Museo della memoria (2:26)
03. spinnen (2:22)
04. LOCURA (2:13)
05. Santa Salvacion (2:25)
06. Discurso Grande (3:09)
07. ニグレド (4:30)
08. ニグレド (off Vocal) (4:30)

Museo della memoria = museum of memories
spinnen = talk rubbish or spin, weave (I'm not sure, I guess depends which track it actually is, maybe it's the lecture track; not the piano/violin one, that's the waltz)
locura = madness
Santa Salvacion = holy salvation
Discurso Grande = Touka is a Nazi
ニグレド = Nigredo

from wiki
In alchemy, nigredo, or blackness, means putrefaction or decomposition. Many alchemists believed that as a first step in the pathway to the philosopher's stone, all alchemical ingredients had to be cleansed and cooked extensively to a uniform black matter.[1]

In analytical psychology, the term became a metaphor for 'the dark night of the soul, when an individual confronts the shadow within'.

I mean, if they included off vocal for Nigredo, they could've also included one for UWASA kazoeuta...

But dat pounding strings track! I guess it has to be LOCURA, even if in the show it appeared before the other track that could be spinnen. (The rest seems to be in anime order.) Can't wait... hopefully appears by Sunday... lol.

Also there must be some creative editing done in the anime cause the holy fight was ~2:45. Edit: Now that I'm listening I guess they repeated the middle chorus section twice, would be about 25secs.

After checking, pounding strings seems to be 2:20 so it would match spinnen rather than LOCURA... HMMMMM... But it also has a 10sec lead-in that gets repeated twice in the animu... I guess we'll see...

Shit quality but here

OST is also on youtube but the quality is really shit. Like someone played around with band EQ or boosted everything +20dB. Hope the actual CD and eventual lossless rips are not like this. If this youtube rip was indicative of the actual CD, this would be replacement program worthy to me. The CD quality is surefine.

Having said that, I like pretty much everything.
LOCURA the most :fan: ; Nazi Speech and Nigredo the least probably. :/
Discourse has some sweet arrangement choices here and there but as a whole is obnoxious (I can only guess intentionally). Half the instruments feel synth, too.
Nigredo has some interesting backing vocals in the off Vocal version, some of Shito's umm vocalising? on the lead is cool, too. As a whole the song just doesn't sound as "BAM!" as most Magia Record fans seem to think IMHO. Maybe it's this upload quality.

Edit: I got into Nigredo a lot more listening to non-yt OST4. Discurso Grande still the least fav though.

tldr: I really liked Magia Record BGM. Plz2standalone release.

Thanks for the listing with romanised names!

Good to see Shinji Kakijima listed again, I've attended a few lives where he played (including for Aira Yuuki and with Lisa Komine, who all appear on Aira Yuuki's "Uta" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KlrRbOfmFlw ).

He's also in the Element Hunters ED https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hc08LP69lVM , and has been a backing musician for savage genius.

I think Kajiura prefers Sato due to him working with her since See-Saw rather than how good he plays 😅 (or she just has low standards for drums).

That came out of nowhere, lol. 14 months with no updates and then "starts in 3 weeks". Then again, since they only said summer, not even July, could it be a mid-season premiere?

Fingers crossed the OST is at least as good as the first season.
