Symphonic Suite Akira
damain | Ca | 02/24/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This peice is the stand alone symphonic work that was written for the movie Akira by Geinoh Yamashirogumi, a little know japanese amateur group. It masterfully blends several types of cultural musical styles from around the world to create a dark and moving work. although it was written for akira, it is a great peice in and of itself."

"This is an astounding soundtrack. It was actually composed before the film, the animation teams worked around the structure of the music. This CD sounds like NOTHING else you've ever heard. It combines complex vocal/choral work with interesting percussion from throughout Asia especially Gamelan music from Bali!
The soundscape of this recording paints a paradoxical picture, Primitive and high tech,on one hand is is relaxing and beautiful on the other it is menacing and moody,light and dark mixing in orchestral bliss."
One of the greatest soundtracks...ever

"This is a must-own soundtrack for anyone that's seen the movie. The first track, Kaneda, is pure genius, and is one of the single greatest tracks from any film, in my opinion. The majority of the music on here is excellent, and by all means worth having. The music perfectly reflects the atmosphere of the movie, in more ways than one."
