"Stoning" - A dramatic instrumental track, which was used as the opening for the first two episodes.
"Big O!" - (By Rui Nagaki) It has some obvious influences of Queen, and is quite different from the other songs on this OST.
"Stand a Chance" - An amalgam of orchestra and electronic synths make another upbeat, menacing songs.
"Name of God" - I'm a bit disappointed that the vocals are not included, as they are on the TV show. Its a menacing, dramatic orchestral song, but the choir would have made it even more dramatic.
"The Storm" - Bongos and heavy synth use. Eerie track.
"Spirit" - Varies in tempo. Dramatic orchesta track.
"Servant" - Electronic organ and horn use. Reminiscent to a certain kind of 70's music...
"Apologize" - Moving piano tune.
"Apparel" - Wacky little orchestra song.
"The Great" - Menacing orchestral song.
"Apostle" - Piano piece. One of the best songs on this album.
"False" - Slow, dramatic orchestral piece.
"Sleep My Dear" - Piano using the "Apologize" theme an octave higher, while a lonely synth pad is played in the back. The best song on the album.
"Sure Promise" - Upbeat, orchestra song. You can imagine The Big O saving the day with this song in the back.
"Touch" - Mysterious little song. Synths and maybe a theremin are used.
"Weep For" - Another mysterious song.Read more ›
1. Stoning- The opening theme for eps 1-2 when the molten lava reveal's Big-O's head. The battle theme for Big-O vs The Mummy in ep 12.
2. Big-O Opening Theme <Edit>- Yes the opening theme for Big-O only cut short. Use as a battle theme for act 7.
3. Stand A Chance- The main battle theme for Big-O taking down megaduces. Used for Acts 2,4,6,7,8,9,11,12,13.
4. Name of God- Tune that always remind me of the past of 4- year's ago. Used in Act 5 as Roger is on the bridge explaining Bonnie Frazer's death. The tomatoe speech with Gordon Rosewater in act 13.
5. The Storm- A mystery is going down what will Roger do? Take action in this intense tune. Used for Acts5,6,7,8
6. Spirit- Like jaws this tune slowly comes up then finishes with a bang. Used only twice in season 1. For Act-6 When Roger confronts Contenze and for Act-12 my personal favorite the intro theme to Big-Duo as Roger meets the red megaduce for the first time.
7. Servant- A crusing beat for Roger to get annoy with like Roger is negotiating with Mr Wise, Roger and Dorothy in act 11 while they are shopping.
8. Apologize- The piano theme that Dorothy sometimes played or whenever Roger is talking about memories of the past of Paradigm. For Acts 1,2.
9. Apparel- One step, two step Big-O vs The Giant Toy Robot from act-10 in this struggle tune.
10. The Great- A giant monster theme for the enemies of Big-O. Dorothy-1, The snake from act-3.
11. Apostle- Dorothy play this tune on the piano. Roger is investigated the scene when this tune comes on.

As for the rest of the cd it is a precise and perfect mix of noir style power synth, mixed with emotional melodies, -and even a few player-piano meanderings (the music you here when Roger goes to the bar to get info from his contact).
This is one of those soundtracks that stands up even better *without* the interference of the show's various sounds and dialogue. Which is probably why not many people know about it. Now you can hear all of the music and feel that thrill when Roger Smith shouts, "It's showtime!" Further good news, it's also completely free of the usual anime 'silly' synth music. You know the kind I'm talking about, -the under twelve year-old pokemush casio-tone music that ruins a cd and wears out your remote because your always tapping on the 'skip' button. ....
Final words: Devoid of sound effects and the usual anime 'foofy bouncy' music, the Big-O soundtrack is a precise and powerful trip into a noir sci-fi future. Very good.
About the tracks themselves, there is everything from blues to jazz to classical. I know the soundtrack is expensive, but, in my opinion, it's worth it.

The tv series this is from isn't the best, but the soundtrack is amazing. It is worth shelling out extra money for an authentic copy of the cd instead of some bootleg crap.Published on January 20, 2013 by Apollo Hernandez

As noted by a previous reviewer, the title Big O song sounds a lot like Queen. That's because it IS Queen, not influenced by. Read morePublished on February 27, 2005 by anime watcher
