5.0 out of 5 stars Cowboy Bebop Original Soundtrack I January 15, 2001
Format:Audio CD
1. Tank! -- The opening theme to COWBOY BEBOP, an incredible instrumental jazz piece utilizing the big band. Performed by SEATBELTS, the group that does a lot of the jazz/big-band BGM from the show.
2. RUSH -- Another fun jazz band piece, used as background music (BGM) in the show.
3. SPOKEY DOKEY -- A jazz harmonica BGM piece that settles into some very mellow guitar/harmonica blues.
4. BAD DOG NO BISCUITS -- Used as BGM for one of the two huge chase scenes in Session 2 of "Cowboy Bebop." :) A really fun jazz band BGM that goes into a bit of a ska beat towards the end.
5. CAT BLUES -- A light, playful jazz piece used as BGM.
6. COSMOS -- A solo trumpet version of "Farewell Blues" from OST 3, BLUE.
7. SPACE LION -- Used as the ending theme of session 13, "Jupiter Jazz." Some very ambient, flowing jazz saxophone that flows into a native-american type chant.
8. WALTZ FOR ZIZI -- Featuring guitar most prominently, this old-western type waltz paints the scenes of many dramatic or calm scenes in the series.
9. PIANO BLACK -- An incredibly interesting jazz piece (in a meter of 3), with a clanky percussive loop accompanying actual drums, the skilled piano stylings of composer Yoko Kanno, and a stylish saxophone solo. I love this piece! :D
10. POT CITY -- A dreary, guitar-laden riff that lives up to its name.
11. TOO GOOD TOO BAD -- Contrasting the bleak sound of "POT CITY," this jazzy piece takes off from the start, reminding me of 60s cop shows. ;)
12. CAR 24 -- An extremely cute piece which makes use of flute, other winds, vibraphone, and several saxophones. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best! March 23, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Ah! The first Cowboy BeBop CD! If you're new to Cowboy BeBop, let me say that this soundtrack will only make you love the series more! Every time I listen to it, I can't help but picture the scene that the song is from. Yoko Kanno is quite possibly the best composer around, and it shows in this CD. I know that the price is a little steep, but you won't regret buying it.
1. Tank! 3:30 - This is one of my fav songs! As you may know, this is the longer opening song to the series. The jazzy melody definatly adds atmosphere to the show.
2. RUSH 3:34 - Here's another fast-paced jazz song. RUSH was played on sessions 0 and 1.
3. SPOKEY DOKEY 4:04 - Now it's getting a bit more laid back. SPOKEY DOKEY is the harmonica song that was played when Spike was training in session 1. I didn't care for it that much at first. But as I listened to it more, I grew to love it!
4. BAD DOG NO BISCUITS 4:09 - Now I know what you may be thinking, as I was thinking this when I first saw the title. "What the hell kind of name is that?!" When I heard it, it made more sense. This is another fast-paced song that was played during session 0 and 2. (Session 2 is the first one with Ein!)
5. CAT BLUES 2:35 - Getting more laid back again! This cool song was played in the beginning of session 10, when Ed was "attacking" the bounty. This song is also on the CD Box set.
6. COSMOS 1:36 - A song for Jet! This song was played in session 16 during Jet's flash-back.
7. SPACE LION 7:10 - I love this song so much! This is probably my favorite song on this CD! This was played as the ending song for session 13. Very moving! This song is also on the CD Box.
8. WALTZ for ZIZI 3:29 - ZIZI was sure played a lot during the series!

5.0 out of 5 stars The essential soundtrack for fans of the series. June 27, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Normally its a given for hard-core anime fans to get the soundtrack for their favorite anime series(normally though, alot of anime music tends to fall flat on its face). Cowboy Bebop's soundtrack is no exception. The main difference is that the Cowboy Bebop soundrack(OST 1) is probably one of the best I have ever heard.
For those who had seen the series, you know that CB intertwines both visual aspects and sounds/music in a way that makes for an ultimate view experience. This sound track is just an affermation of that. With a fusion of mainly blues, jazz, folk, and even a little techno, OST 1 proves to be much more than just a soundtrack. Heck, I can even imagine fans of the genres listed above getting into this.
Because most of this CD plays as a stand alone songs, I figured a song by song view would be the best:
1) TANK! - The brilliant opening of Cowboy Bebop has an incredibly addictive opening theme. For those who dont know, its sort of jazz mixed with a very very thick groove. Also features some excellent horns(as does alot of the series).
2) Rush - Has very little in common with the progressive rock band, but deffinately lives up to its name. Another of the jazz songs with very funky sound to it.
3) Spokey Dokey - Blues harp rains supreme on this song. While its a bit noodley, the faint guitars add a little something to this song.
4) Bad Dog, No Biscuits - Almost ska sounding. This yet another up tempo song that progresses from jazz to ska in an amazingly smooth way. Once again, dig the horns(this CD has alot of that).
5) Cat Blues - Features a very beatnick style sound to it in its use of drums, horns, and percussion. I love this piece!
6) Cosmos - Sort of an interlude to the next song. This one is essentially a 2 minute jazz solo.

Cowboy Bebop episode 24
It's the one that extends on into the commercial break bumper from there, right (my box set is squirreled away at the moment and I'm feeling too lazy to dig it back out)? If so, then you're looking for "Wo Qui Non Coin", on the "Cowboy Bebop: Blue" album. I love that one... Read More
