5.0 out of 5 stars The 1st of Three Key Evangelion Soundtracks August 12, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is "Neon Genesis Evangelion", the first of the three fundamental Eva soundtracks, with 23 tracks and clocking in at 58 minutes (and 2 seconds). This soundtrack covers much of the basic music heard in the beginning of the anime series. An excellent collection. EXCELLENT.

The lyrics pamphlet includes thought-invoking words from Director Hideaki Anno, Director of Music Shiro Sagisu, and two Assistant Directors. Shinji and Eva Unit-01 are on the cover. Includes Japanese and English translation lyrics for the long version of Cruel Angel's Thesis, and words to Fly Me to the Moon. The rest are credits. On the back of the case is a scene with Eva-01 walking away from a smoky explosion site.

A runthrough of the tracks:

#1) A Cruel Angel's Thesis <Director's Edit. Version> -- A longer version of the intro of the anime. It runs through the main verses once, then goes through a bridge, and runs through the main verses once more.

#2) Fly Me to the Moon -- A very standard version of FMttM. Long version, not TV size.

#3) Angel Attack -- Suspenseful action music. Very typically played during several Angel attacks throughout the anime series.

#4) Rei I -- Ahhh, Rei! Serene and beautiful music in the name of Rei. Sad and peaceful piano and violin. It will remind you of the scenes with Rei, who herself is serenely beautiful.

#5) Hedgehog's Dilemma -- Also sad, with acoustic guitar and high notes from a piano. Will fill you with the blues.

#6) Barefoot in the Park -- A bit more upbeat, with a hint of jazz.

#7) Ritsuko -- I don't remember this from the anime, but it's fine. Doesn't particularly remind me of Evangelion, nor Ritsuko, but the music is fine. Plucky guitar and piano.

5.0 out of 5 stars My new favorite CD May 22, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD, even though it cost fifty bucks, because Evangelion's music is awesome. The first track, Evangelion's theme song, is the meat & potatoes of the CD. When translated, the song title is "The Thesis of the Cruel Angel". The second track, "Fly Me To the Moon," is hauntingly calm for such a series. The song plays after each episode in the series. It's like the calm after the storm, and before another. The rest of the tracks are instrumental music from the series except for the last one, another remix of "Fly Me To the Moon." The only song which I dislike is track nine, Asuka's theme. It simply does not fit into this CD. This is the music from the first few episodes. My friend and I like listening to the music on this disc and reminicing on when this music was played in the series. Overall, a fine CD. Good beat, great music. Only problem is the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beatiful and greatly done music April 24, 2005
By Just J.
Format:Audio CD
Neon Gensis Evangelion Vol. I is my favorite among the set of three main soundtracks, the instrumental music is simply some of the best you'll find on any Anime Soundtrack, it only covers a small portion of the series, but it's definately the best portion.

I totally recommend it and, if you can only buy one the Neon Gensis Evangelion albums, this is it.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Zankoku no tenshi no thesis..." December 20, 1999
Format:Audio CD
WoW! Talk about intense music! This CD set is the almost perfect accesory for any EVA/anime fan. This set compiles all the music from the TV anime series into 4 discs. My reason for loving it... I listened to the CD's before I went to bed one night and I found myself staring out the window into the stars beyond. I swore I could see the Evangelion series playing right before my eyes -- that's how individualistic the music is. And because I understood the series, I could fit the story and the music together. At one point, I was in tears because it hit me in a soft spot. Want inspiration? Get the CDs!

4.0 out of 5 stars The soundtrack from the most contraversial anime series September 22, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Now the music in this soundtrack ranges from pop to just Background music . It is pretty new in it's essence and will surprise many listeners to its origial content . Althrough some people would call this music "CHEESY", I for one do not think so , for since I have seen every episode of the series it brings back a lot of memories for me ,of the series and of the music . The emotions of the series is all transferred into this brillant and award winning soundtrack that will satisfiy a big range of listeners . There is for instance tracks that you don't really listen to for pleasure unless your into battle music and then there are tracks that deserves pop status . There are variations of FLY ME TO THE MOON from different artists and so on . All in all an very enjoyable cd and it's well worth it's price for me a big evangelion fan . I highly recommand it if your into anime music or just want something different and enjoyable then neon genesis evangelion soundtrack vol one is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Neon Genesis Evangelion: the CD August 18, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This CD has got everything. If you're an Eva fan, you'll recognize all of the songs. It's got the opening theme(Cruel Angel's Thesis), three versions (one is instrumental) of the closing theme(Fly me to the Moon), the song they play at breakfast time (Misato), the song they play when they talk about the next episode (Decisive Battle), and even the song you hear when Shinji is thinking inside his Eva. You'll love this CD, so buy it now.
