Let me just say that I am not much of anime fan, but "The Big O" has smitten me. Its dystopian perfection and convoluted genius just makes it so fascinating to watch and try to figure out. With that being said, the music of "The Big O" is one of the series high points. The music is a paradigm of the whole feel and look of the show. Toshihiko Sahashi has defintely hit the mark with this sound score.
"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.

This is the music that plays during Big-O season 1. I am a huge fan of this show because the music goes with every scene giving you the same erie feeling that Roger Smith feels whenever he encounters many scenrios.

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.

The Big-O has been often compared to Batman (the main character and his gear, his butler, etc.), but it more definitely pays homage to Bladerunner in both its setting, premise and (more importantly since you are reading this here in the music review section) its style of musical score. ....
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.

I listen to this in the car and find myself wanting to have an inner dialogue with myself..."My name is....and I do a very important job in this town...". Naturally, the first few days I had this disc, it was overcast and I thought that even the weather was perfect (the sun will never shine on this town again). I've been a Big O fan since early high school and I never knew that a soundtrack existed.

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.
