While I agree - I'm glad there's a movie version of the OST available. They can do that if they do a standalone Music Collection for Heaven's Feel.Yuki Kajiura brings so much to the atmosphere but listening to this soundtrack separately is so boring.
Many tracks (should I even call it like that ?) should have been fused in order to make one coherent track.
Yeah, I'm waiting for this 20 min length tracks collection. LOL. I live in a candy land, just like our dear Heaven's Feel protagonist.While I agree - I'm glad there's a movie version of the OST available. They can do that if they do a standalone Music Collection for Heaven's Feel.
Not bad but for me it's more like she didn't want to do he job completely. The same melody comes back again and again (no joke intended) and most of the tracks end abruptly, or are so inconsistent...So yeh, finally finished.
I think this OST was an experiment for YK. There were so many passages when I went "well okay then, miss Kajiura..." On the flipside of this, there's also so much cheese, lol. Still, gotta applaud trying new things, eh? We'll see how that goes into spring song.
I think that the job should go beyond that. First making a listenable CD, then edit it to fit the scenes, that's my personal opinion as a listener but also that of some others very well known composers who think this way.Yea but how can you say "she didn't want to do the job completely" without taking the movie into account. Her job was scoring the movie, not making a listenable CD, lol.
I have the heaven's feeling that it's really intended. Sharp, squeaky, piercing strings all over the soundtrack, with lacking of other instruments, making you feel really bad. If she wanted to do a Fate/Zero like soundtrack, she could have easily added horns and drums in a more heroic way. But that's not the route of Sakura, defined by tragedy, loneliness and dark twists (in my humble opinion).not the strings themselves which are for the most part boring as hell (maybe that was intended ? Lol).
Like who? What movie composer edits their film score from album versions? (Putting soundtracks based on songs aside and ignoring situations like Alien where the editor basically rejected the original score and edited the soundtrack from the same composer's other movies as well as others - that was not the composer's choice or doing.)I think that the job should go beyond that.

AFAIK not a single TV show Kajiura has worked on was scored to footage (sans 2 scenes in Fate/Zero if I remember correctly, or maybe that was just that they specifically recorded music for the summoning scene and completed the animation later set to music - I don't remember where that interview was). She probably never even saw a script for many of them. Kajiura and Mashimo have described several times how they would work - Kajiura was free to compose whatever based on a description sheet from Mashimo and he would use it how he pleased.Trying to dilute this post in order not to be classified as off topic: YK's El Cazador de la Bruja to cite only one example, I don't think that she seated in front of the TV show's sketchs and said: oh I can just put some shorts BGMs there and there. She really explored the world beyond the anime scenes.
Exactly, that's precisely why I'm complaining. She can make better music without overshadowing the show !It really wasn't until later that she started contemplating her approach to composing for anime and being more careful as to not overpower dialogue. Much to our disappointment today. lol.
