It's very hard to find outside of the film and was never sold digitally, but it's a tremendous score

The madam butterfly theme was awesome

Not really, no.
But it does have incredibly good visuals, some episodes are really good like 4 and the ferris wheel one and the OST is god's gift to humanity, so it's up to you.

>>145463536
She doesn't put horns in everything or lazily reverse a main track to create a secondary track.

Same OST. Believe me, it's worth hunting down the whole thing. The anime may have been the biggest disappointment of its year, but it's almost egregious to find fault in the OST.
>>
>>145458432
Hiroyuki Sawano surpassed her because
1. He keeps getting hired
2. He doesn't stop making soundtracks, season after season

God Yoko Kanno is fucking mesmerizing
Even if the show is bad, I'll still trek through it.
Here are some of my favorite songs

He hardly does anything new.

Copy-cat Kanno will forever be tainted for stealing other peoples music for Escaflowne.

Overrated Sony Music trash just like Sawano
>>
>>145463492
The OST was the best thing about this anime desu.

Actually, I liked pretty much everything besides the actual story.
>>
>>145469043
desu there are a lot of similar to nearly identical passages in Kanno's music to other - older - artists, but music is like that, isn't it? There's hardly anything new.
I mean, every single jpop song and so every anime OP has the same chord progression, it's really hard to find one that doesn't have it. (It's called Royal Road, or IV△7→V7→IIIm7→VIm for the musicianfags here)

"let's do the same thing countless times" the ost.
>>
Yeh it' definitely a coincidence amirite :^)
>>
>>145468005
What are you talking about? Most of Escaflowne's music was composed by her husband at the time, Hajime Mizoguchi.
>>
>>145458432
Cowboy Bebop wouldn't be as popular if it weren't for her
>>
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofQTRgWcimY

A lot of her music is great: CB, GitS, ZnT to name a few. Personally I really like her but it's true what the other anon is saying. Go to the website and watch the videos and be honest with yourself: there is no denying that a lot of her famous tracks are "heavily inspired".
>>
>>145465559
Sawano is terrible. You can tell it's his work right away from the first couple of notes. It's not his "style" either, he simply never tries anything new.

Yoko Kanno has suffered from that issue at times but Sawano outright embraces it. Sawano is all about reusing a single track over and over again. And that single track sounds atrocious, at least the track was good when Kanno slipped into sameness.
>>
>>145458432
>Yoko Kanno
She has made some good soundtracks.


My favorite composer is still Yuki Kajiura
>>
>>145466750
Kanno did this?
>>
I prefer Gabriela Robin.
>>
>>145458432
Who's the guy who did Star Wars? She's that guy as a cute Japanese girl.
>>
>>145473270
Didn't she do all of it? I though she composed everything in Bebop and it was mostly done by that one jazz band with a few other performers.
>>
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QEqEh9GGyx4

Not animu related, but she did pretty good ost in videogames like this one.

Too bad her stuff in the first version of Ragnarok II never saw the light of the day.
>>
>>145475183
>never saw the light of the day

what happened?
>>
>>145475237
First version called Ragnarok II: Gate of the World got cancelled. There were pretty good ost there.

Second version called RO2: Legend of the Cecond changed most of the game including the old music.
>>
>>145458432
At least she ripped off the same composers James Horner did for her orchestral soundtracks.

>>145470793
Nope. He did maybe 1/4 of the tracks and almost all of it is slow string pieces, like everything else he's done.
>>
Its funny how while I was listening to the Turn A Gundam OST I thought I had put on Verdi's Messa da Requiem, because one of the tracks sounded very close to it.

Kanno's music is good, no doubt, but she doesn't have her own style, it's always someone elses.
