Hiroyuki Sawano thread.

Let's talk about the Hans Zimmer of anime who breathes new life in anime scores brimming with variety with compositions like Gundam Unicorn, Kill La Kill, Attack On Titan, Seraph Of The End, and I am fucking excited with what he's going to do with Xenoblade Chronicles X.
>>
Tired of his shit

The OST is already out, and it's shit.
Here's your reply.
>>
I genuinely feel relief knowing that I don't need to get a Wii U to play Xenoblade X now because the soundtrack is so fucking obnoxious and shitty. Bad music ruins just about any RPG.
>>
>>133874294
Unicorn's the only good thing he's done.

Everything else is either shit or forgettable

Which soundtrack did he copy and paste that one from? Aldnoah?

Variety and Sawano are not two words I should ever see in a sentences unless a negative is in there somewhere.

that's because he ripped off of ZUN in that one

>>133875053
That's not Yuki Kajiura

I'd say he's becoming another Motoi Sakuraba. And that's a bad thing.

Should have kept Shimomura.
>>
>>133874294
>Hans Zimmer of anime
All of their works are the exact same so I guess you're right.
>>
Everyone seems to forget about his Sengoku Basara anime OST.

That shit was so cash.
>>
>>133874294
He was promising talent with Zombie Loan and Unicorn OST, however since Guilty Crown all he does is rehash himself like Kajiura.

ITT: one trick pony. Its nice trick, but even it gets old.

For example Iwasaki, while having very defined and recognizable own style still has lot more originality and variation.
>>
My favorite is Gundam Unicorn

A-1, you're supposed to say the name of the show before you start shilling the staff.
>>
I didn't know him and I listened to Xenoblade Chronicles' OST.

At that moment, there was only one thing that went through my mind: "Give us Yoko Shimomura and ACE+ back".
I don't even want to play it if it is to hear such a bland and tasteless soundtrack.

Did you just leave your cave or something? OST is out for half a year already.
The OST itself is ok but he really needs more experience in composing for video games. Most of the track doesn't fit to the atmosphere at all. Most notable one is the unique enemies music.

I don't feel any sense of emergency or element of surprise from XCX one. It's just catchy song that didn't fit the battle atmosphere at all.

Sawano is a good composer but I think if he keep this up, he should just stick to composing for anime or live action and stay the fuck away from video games.
>>
>one trick pony

Pretty much the perfect way to describe him

All his shit sounds the same, granted its some good shit but good shit is still shit desu

Oh God. And to say I wanted to purchase a Wii U for this game.

I really don't know why he insists to add vocals to his tracks.

They're unnecessary and actually makes them sound worse.

>>133881266
This is perfectly serviceable, Hell, it actually sounds great.

>>133874294
He's literally copy-pasting his scores from one show to another. Just like Zimmer.
>>
The XCX OST is garbage, speaking off Wii U game OSTs I can't wait to hear the #FE one.

Unicorn was his best work. I personally like ao no exorcist as well.

His music isn't bad, it's just really similar. He hasn't come up with anything new.
Not that I really blame him, with all the work he's been getting.

I dislike how he can't compose one consistent song though. Halfway through there's always a tempo change, a quirky sound effect or some badly placed vocals. It's like he doesn't know how to end a song.

His songs could use some new vocalists too. I'm tired of Kobayashi's Engrish and David's shitty rap.
>>
How AC+ (Xenoblade chronicles) did a better job for the OST than Hiroyukii Sawano (Xenoblade chronicles X)?

Even the nanatsu no taizai soundtrack sounds the same.

The Xenoblade X OST is out. It's not very good. Also the western release is confirmed for having a garbage script full of shit dialogue and weird name changes, as well as christfag-tier censorship.

It looks like he's been recording a lot of new stuff recently over the past few months according to his twitter. It seems like game, anime, and nzk stuff. It seems too early for Titan S2 or Taizai S2 music, so what do you guys think he's working on?

I like everything Sawano has done, including Xenoblade.

However, I get the impression he isn't that good when he's left to his own devices.

Trigger and Sunrise, I imagine, worked very closely with him and as such produce two fantastic soundtracks.

Nintendo/Monolith, on the other hand, I imagine basically just said "knock yourself out", and that's why the Xenoblade OST doesn't hold up to those two.
>>
>>133887900
I've heard from peeps who played it long enough, they started to like the OST and its quirkiness

Noctilum in the day time seems to be a favorite
>>
>>133888092
I've been listening to it for a while. A lot of the filler songs are boring, but I like most of the vocal tracks and everything that contains/is a mix of the main theme.
>>
>>133874294
>Hans Zimmer of anime
I think Iwasaki deserves that title more.

They aren't really bad but yeah they work the score home but it's nothing write home about.
>>
>>133874294

I think this is overall the best piece of music he ever did

Previous Xeno had 5 or 6 composers
