A viewing of the exceptionally thought-provoking series, 'Paranoia Agent' will beg the disturbing question, "Is 'Lil' Slugger' in you?" If not, then perhaps it'll be the stream of dark instrumental music from the "Paranoia Agent Original Soundtrack" that will sink into your subconscious. Composer Susumu Hirasawa takes listeners on a schizophrenic journey to unbelievably simple, yet beautifully strange compositions, relentlessly shifting with the hum of electronic whirring, breathless beats and infectious chanting spliced in. From the opening vocal song, "Dream Island Obsessional Park" to the eerie ending, "White Hill - Maromi's Theme," nothing on this 19-track CD is ordinary music. The soundtrack from "Paranoia Agent," the critically acclaimed TV thriller available on DVD from Geneon Entertainment, features music composed by Susumu Hirasawa (Berzerk, Millenium Actress, Detonator Orgun) a full-color insert booklet with song lyrics and composer profile translated in English, as well as romanized lyrics.
