5.0 out of 5 stars Great music for fans of the series. February 10, 2011
Verified Purchase
This is the 1st of 2 part CD, sold separately. Be sure to buy both for the best experience as season 2 music is on the second album. Both albums have wonderful orchestrated tracks and impressive instrumentals you can hear from the series. This album has almost no English at all, being a Japanese production. The second album does contain the English acapella version of the title song.

5.0 out of 5 stars YK is OK. March 16, 2006
Released last year, Genesis of Aquarion shows off Yoko Kanno's continuing development and growth in orchestral writing, who, in leaving the ultra-modern stuff to her co-composer, Hisaaki Hogari, uses an arsenal of technique to compose classical scores that realize the talent and potential that was promised us in Macross. Kanno doesn't have to work at it so hard anymore, as her works now tend towards a calm-filled substance; however, she has still maintained her excitement and dynamism for the genre by turning to culture for inspiration. Here, she seemingly turned her eyes toward Russia, ladening chorale pieces with tenors and basses: Aquarion rumbles with Russian-style sterness as insistent male voices rise bolstering above clashing orchestra. Sa is a quieter (but not less impressive) continuation, including a softer, feminine influence to mostly a cappella theme that never suffers from lack of instrumentation as chorus progressively layers the theme into greater stages of complexity, guaranteeing its replay-ability. Operatic Saint Aquarion displays the power of a solo voice just as well as a chorus's: tenor takes center stage, singing an intricately rousing lyrical conversation as orchestra and chorus wait to repeat, making a story of a song, even if the language be nonsensical. Falling violin motif (reminiscent of Flight of the Valkerie) begins High Spirit, which owns an upbeat energy without loosing its structure--the theme is repeated throughout, each repetition a study in variation--and one of the best songs on the cd is Brown Horses, where a viola spills out a Russian-ethnic folk song that is backed up by orchestra to diversify, making this song a prime example of virtuoso orchestral-writing, and a treat to the ears to boot. This is Kanno at her best, and what a delight it is. Read more ›
