Once again the album opens with a couple of pop songs sung by the same artist who performed A cruel angel's thesis over the opening titles. Again I'm sure these songs never appeared in the series and I'm still a bit confused as to why they're included on this album. After this though we're thrown headlong into classic Eva territory with a reprise of the 'Beast II' theme, here named Normal blood, and even though it's essentially a shortened repeat from the previous volume it still packs a punch. Besides it's arguably the most iconic theme from Neon Genesis (after A cruel angel's thesis and Fly me to the moon)and was used countless times during the course of the series so I don't think any fan would begrudge it's return here. 'Harbinger of tragedy' is another familure track used a number of times (including the End of Evangelion) and is best associated with Nerv's attempts to retrieve Shinji from unit 01. Track 5 is a short exerpt from Bach's Six suites for unaccompanied cello and is acctually performed by Shinji in the episode it appears. This peice would go on to become closely associated with Evangelion, making a reappearance in 'Death and Rebirth'.Read more ›
Overall, it's a good CD, worth the purchase if your a fan of the other two CD's, but I'd definately recommend the first two volumes over this one.
Although this product will pose a "?" to a listener's mind if s/he has never even seen the series, but if YOU have and are now peacefully and dillegently Evangel-ised, then this stuff simply a MUST!
Another CD I can thoroughly recommend is an album called "Evangelion Vox". Available in amazon.co.jp and other online outlets chiefly in Japan. Here a rapper Malispits some traditional-style rhymes on digitally twisted Eva-BGM backtracks.
