First of all I would like to say that Escaflowne features what I believe is the greatest soundtrack ever (TV or Film). The epic sci-fi fantasy soundtrack features sweeping orchestra work the likes of which many will doubtless be familiar from their experience with films like Star Wars. In my opinion the music from Escaflowne manages to one-up said soundtracks, becoming a masterpiece of musical arrangement that not only transcends anime, but TV and sci-fi fantasy as well. My favorite piece of music is Revenge from the third Escaflowne soundtrack.

If like most people who watched Escaflowne, you loved the music, doubtless you want to buy at least one of the soundtracks so that you can experience the music in all of its glory. You may however, be wondering where to start. This soundtrack features music from the three other soundtracks, as well as music which is not featured on any of the others.

The first piece of music is an alternate and slightly longer than television size version of the opening song from the show No Need to Promise. It's nice and interesting, but no match for the full version featured on the first soundtrack.
The second track is an alternate version of Vision of Escaflowne, which I believe is played on the final episode of the series. The third track Memory of Fanelia is the string instrument version of Fanelia from the second soundtrack, and is only featured in this cd. This music is played in the episode where Van returns to the destroyed Fanelia to meet with his brother, and is a simply exquisite piece of music that led to many an evening of me whistling that tune as I worked.

I own all the Escaflowne OSTs and I'd have to say this is the best one. The music of Yoko Kanno and Hajime Mizoguchi is just wonderful, smooth and flowing and conveys all emotions from the hopeful, ethereal "Angel" to the dark, ominous "Blaze."
Maaya Sakamoto's songs on this track are just as lovely, especially "Kaze ga fuku hi" (Track 18) which is still my all-time favorite song after 5 years of owning the CD. This track is has deep, soothing bass accompanied by a lovely saxophone and instruments get added in seemlessly as the song goes on...by the time it reaches the climax of the piece, you're shocked by all that's there.
I'd highly recommend this CD to anyone who likes Yoko Kanno, Maaya Sakamoto, symphonic/choral music, or anime.

When I was first introduced to the series "Tenkuu no Escaflowne" (Vision of Escaflowne) several years ago, one of the things that immediately drew me in was the incredible music. I tire of soundtracks very quickly, normally - but it's been about 4 years now, and I can still put my Lovers Only CD on repeat for hours. It's wonderful background music for creative activities such as writing, drawing, painting, or just relaxing.
Unlike a great deal of soundtrack music, the Escaflowne songs and instrumentals are, for the most part, very non-intrusive. They mesh well with a variety of moods and provide everything from upbeat, catchy stuff to sorrowful and soulful pieces that will really move you. You don't need to be a fan of the series to enjoy the music, either.
This particular OST is my favorite of the five Escaflowne OSTs that I own; it takes many of the best pieces from the series and puts them all on one CD. It also includes one of the most beautiful and addictive musical pieces from Escaflowne, the ominous "Chain" - which is absent from other Esca OSTs. (This is the background piece heard playing during the scene where Folken and Eriya alter Fate, among other scenes.)

I really don't know where to start. I'm in LOVE!!!! I have loved soundtracks since my parents bought me the soundtrack to Walt Disney's Snow White many years ago and continued through the King and I,Flower Drum Song, Silverado, the Big Chill, Jurassic Park continues today. Vision of Escaflowne: Lovers Only is the best soundtrack ever in my opinion!!! It is great like the soundtracks to The Lion in Winter or Star Wars and Indiana Jones. There is even a flavor of the Last Emperor. The music sweeps and soars, staggers and speeds and carries you along with each note. The intricacies and layers of instruments and vocals gathers you in and floods you with it. Its hard to realize that this was created for an animated tv series. Awwww the greatness of the mind responsible for creating this musical gift.

A lovely overview of some of the best music from this lovely anime. The hidden gem on this CD is Kaze ga Fuku Hi (The Days the Wind Blows). This song dosn't stand out while you are watching, but like many of Yoko's songs it is better as a complete number. That song alone is easaly worth what I paid for the CD and the rest of the music is worth having too.

I have liked Escaflowne ever since I watched my first episode way back in college. It was a series that had me happily scavenging video stores for all eight over priced volumes of episodes.

But as much as I liked the series, I must admit that, with the exception of "Dance of Curse," I never really paid too much attention to the music. After all, I watch shows for the story, the action and the pretty special effects, hardly ever for the music.

However, being a fan of the series, and of course the aforementioned "Dance of Curse," I saw this soundtrack and had to get it.

I was pleasantly surprised to find not just one or two good songs on an otherwise dust collecting album, but a whole cd of beautiful, worthwhile music. It's given me a new appreciation for the series. Few television shows really put a lot of effort into their soundtracks. Animated shows in particular, western and eastern alike, tend to just come up with some cliché pop intro that's just irritating. I'm looking at Sonic X and Yugioh 5 D's in particular here.

But Escaflowne is different. Yoko Kanno really put a lot of effort into this. The music on this soundtrack is really beautiful and mood setting. It really brings back a lot of the emotion you got from watching the series. It's the kind of effort you'd expect to see put into a soundtrack for a summer movie.

If you are a fan at all of Escaflowne, then you should get this soundtrack. You won't regret it.
