Good stuff not necessarily the best though,
This review is from: Best of Anime (Audio CD)
This album is pretty good. It is NOT, however, the Best of Anime. It is a decent set of Anime songs and is worthy of owning though.
The noteworthy songs on this album are as follows:
"Beautiful Planet" from Windaria which is a haunting and beautiful song. This is one of the most tear jerking Anime movies ever and this song encompasses the emotion one feels while watching the movie. Note that you would need to see the Japanese version to really get the depth of the story as the Americanized version really really changed the plot and well, everything.
"Active Heart" from Gunbuster super, upbeat, inspirational is all I can say about this one. Gunbuster was one of the first Anime shows I ever saw and I still remember it. Wow! Besides, this comes from Kohei Tanaka who also wrote the music from Sakura Wars, one of my favorite soundtracks of all time. ^_^
"My Heart I Can't Say, Your Heart I Want To Know" from Oh! My Goddess. Properly titled "My Heart Iidasenai, Your Heart Tashikametai" and sung by Inoue Kikuko, Touma Yumi, Hisakawa Aya, this is one of my favorites too. These three women have beautiful voices. Very beautiful voices which befits them as they are supposed to be goddesses. Great song. Great Show!
"Cutey Honey" from Cutey Honey is good. It is fun, but after a few listenings it gets, well, boring. Still it is a high point. Just don't over do it :)
"Sailor Moon Theme" from Sailor Moon is NOT the best song from that series either. Try "The Power of Love" or "Only a Memory Away" if you want that. This is still fitting to be here though as it is one of the better Anime themes. At least the English translation did not screw it up too bad.
Have fun and enjoy this CD.
