Soundtrack "Hane no Ne" [Sound of Wings]

CD No: Pioneer LDC PICA-1270
Release date: 21 Dec 2002
Price: Y2700
Total length: 51:55 (19 tracks)

The soundtrack CD of Haibane Renmei. The music by Ootani Kou, especially for the first half of the CD, perfectly matches my impression of Abe Yoshitoshi's world; a closed universe which we don't know where nor when. Celtic flavour is some tracks certainly adds to its mood.
I simply adore the opening tune (Track 2), which makes you feel the depth of the world, and wish he had made a longer track with the motifs. On the other hand, the second song (Track 16) seems a little out of place.
BTW, the first press comes with a nice card of Rakka ^_^
