5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece January 18, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Wow. That's all I have to say about Yoko Kanno's work on "ESCAFLOWNE - A Girl In Gaea." Ms. Kanno simply amazes me every time I listen to her work, from eclectic Cowboy Bebop to her wonderful collaborations with seiyuu Ma'aya Sakamoto.
Speaking of which, the title song "Yubiwa" is definitely one to remember. Even if you can only understand English, the only version of the title track you should listen to is the Japanese version. Sorry Ms. Snyder, but Ma'aya Sakamoto's voice is truly unmatched. To fans of Ms. Sakamoto's work for past anime title tracks such as "Yakusoku Wa Iranai" and "Kiseki No Umi" (one of my favorites), a noticable maturity is shown through her voice, more so than in the past. One thing that stung me about "Yubiwa" was the rhythm of the drum in the background--it definitely distracts from Ms. Sakamoto's wonderful voice.
Apart from Yubiwa (whose music arrangement was only mediocre), Yoko Kanno, along with her usual Escaflowne partner Hajime Mizoguchi, did a superb job with the soundtrack. Speaking as someone who's watched the movie a couple of times, I could distinctly remember where each track was used in the movie. That's what was incredibly distinctive about these compositions; they created mood and setting, not only acompanying it.
A few tracks definitely stood out in my mind as being above the rest. "First Vision" was one of those, blending calm music reminiscent of the mountains with fast-paced combat music. "Colors" was more subdued, with a definite calmness to the track. "Sora" (and its offspring, "Into GAEA" and "Sora's Folktale") was slow, very chant-like--you could almost describe that it had a religious feel to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A DEFINITE must-buy! Pure magic! October 8, 2001

Format:Audio CD
If you are even the slightest fan of Escaflwone - no, I take that back. If you are even the slightest fan of MUSIC then you are to buy this CD. It is absolutely AMAZING!!! I have the four main CDs from the series and I thought they were good - but then I heard the music from the movie. WOW! It has pretty much everything. Mysterious melodies, fun songs, pop, heart-racing beats... it goes on and on. Your emotions fly when you listen to this CD. The first song (the song from the ending credits of the movie) is the perfect song for Hitomi and Van's relationship. And Enter the Dragon Slayers (Ryuu Geki-Tai Toojou) is one of my personal favorites. It just says "Hello. I'm Dilandau. Welcome to my lair of evil-doings."
Also, I notice that they incorperate (whoops, bad spelling) familiar tunes into the new songs from the movie but with cool twists. The song "Black Escaflowne" carries distinct undertones of the song "Epistle" from the series and anybody who has seen the series will recognise the familiar tune at the end of "We're Flying". The all-famous "Dance of Curse" is reused here, but it is faster, shorter, and they have changed the ending, because the original ending is used in "Black Escaflowne".
I also really enjoy "First Vision" (and its counter-part "Bird Song" which carries the tribal-sounding whistle onto its own track) because of the different feelings you get in one song. The beginning is for the beginning of the movie, where you see a HUGE ship flying past some startled sheep. The desolate feeling you get is sooo perfect. Then it changes into this... grand sounding part in which you see a flying "Van" skydive towards the ship, but the notes are so beautiful and light and airy...

5.0 out of 5 stars The MUSIC!!! The MUSIC!!! September 14, 2004
Format:Audio CD
First thing's first... Yoko Kanno did NOT write and compose all the music in this OST (in ALL Escaflowne OSTs, in fact)... You gotta give credit to her co-composer in Escaflowne, Mr. Hajime Mizoguchi... Tracks 3, 7, 8, 11, 12, 17, 20, and 22 are composed and arranged by Mizoguchi while the rest are composed and arranged by Ms. Yoko Kanno (whom I'm a big fan of)... That aside, this CD ranks along with the other Escaflowne OSTs... They're all awe-inspiring, and jaw-droppingly greaaaat!... I seriously get shivers listening to some of the tracks (even though I did not like the movie that much at all)...

1. Yubiwa [Ring] Movie Version - What a lovely song... I heard this version first before its English version, You're Not Alone (track 25)... Frankly, I seem to like this version just a bit more than the English one... It's sung by the beautifully voiced Maaya Sakamoto (a Yoko Kanno regular) and is a perfect ending theme movie... It's mild and endearing as if the rain has stopped; the storm has passed (dorky thing to say, but meh! you'll remember this review when you listen to this song... hehe)...

02. First Vision - Middle Eastern flavour with some Celtic thrown into it... Gotta love this track... It's the piece that played during Van's air raid massacre (hope didn't spoil that one for those who haven't seen the movie)... The scene emphasizes the more chilling factor of the track...

03. Colors - Great track overall, mellow but shows an adventurous impression to it as well...

04. Into GAEA - Soft chants of the track Sóra (track 10) starts out in the beginning... Then the tension increases to a more chilling and strong chants as if being thrown into a vortex... The ending is quite Middle Eastern...

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best
Not only is Escaflowne one of the best anime in history, but this CD complements it to its height. Although it takes a while to ship it is well worth the wait.
