Monday Music Musings

I’ve been fairly busy lately with three reviews on my plate: two soundtracks for this blog and a single for OriginalSoundVersion where I’ve pretty much settled in as their J-pop reviewer even if I prioritize on anime-related songs. Combine all of that with the workload from my day job, and that doesn’t leave me with a huge chunk of time.

Anyways, that was me trying to say that despite the catchy title, this isn’t going to be a regular column or anything. There are a couple things that caught my attention last week, and I just thought that I’d combine them all here for the sake of convenience. Take a look after the jump. [Read more…]

Reminiscing over the Decade’s Anime Music – 2004

In looking at a list of shows and movies released in 2004, the one thing that I notice is the huge gulf in the quantity of shows released during 2004 versus 2003. When I look at such lists, it becomes a constant reminder of what great shows I’ve missed out on. For instance, 2004 was a year that saw the airing of titles like BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad, Elfen Lied, and Paranoia Agent and I have yet to see any of those. Perhaps time will be kind enough for me to go back to give these shows a fair shot, but at this stage in my life, that’s not exactly an option.

So what of the shows that I did see? It’s so huge a list that to cover them all requires me to spend days happily rolling a soundtrack and taking in every note and chord that comes my way and describe it in elaborate detail. In short, it’s not practical, so I’ll keep it as short as I can and leave it to you readers to reminisce and explore these soundtracks on your own.

Note: Once again, youtube videos are spoilered, clips contain the entire track, and with that, let’s go! [Read more…]

My Thoughts on OPs and EDs

This really should have been written up sooner, especially since Shinmaru over at Unmei Kaihen has put up a good post outlining the purpose behind those OPs and EDs and I’ll just expand on it a bit further. I think that for most of us, the idea behind those sequences are fairly obvious, but it never hurts to put it in writing so that any misconceptions (mine or the readers’) can be dispelled.
