Love this whole album. The Ein color scheme is just icing on a very tasty cake.

Looks great, sounds better! This beautiful pressing is high quality and a great listen. I had to re-binge the anime.

My father loves Jazz music. So I thought this would be a good Christmas gift for him. Haven’t got him to watch the anime much yet but he enjoys the music pretty good. I do too.

I love the show and of course the music. This is spinning in my house regularly! My two year old asks to “play the Bebop” so you can’t say no to that! The vocal tracks aren’t the best but this is primarily instrumental and it’s awesome!

When I found the LP, I had to have it and it did not disappoint. The sound quality is grade A, you can close your eyes and see the series. Great album if you're a jazz collector.

I find the animé to be enjoyable. Translation is often questionable and has "an affect on the landscape," of a non-Japanese speaker. The stories can be disjointed, confusing, and often feel rushed. This is no Studio Ghibli. I also didn't grow up with it, so that makes a difference. I have no formative memory of it, which can anchor just about anything inside a silo of "great," even when it's just pedestrian entertainment. Don't misunderstand. I like Cowboy Bebop, and plan to rewatch (the mark of a quality show, IMO.) The soundtrack is another thing, entirely. I'm still becoming familiar with Yoko Kanno, having loved Macross Plus for years, and after the live-action Netflix redo of Cowboy Bebop, Kanno's updated Cowboy Bebop soundtrack completely transcends that story, not unlike John Williams and Star Wars, and I cannot get it out of my head. The animé soundtrack reviewed here is no different, though produced 30 years apart. The music is timeless. Jazzy, and eclectic, the songs evoke instant memories of the show, and support the odd and disparate nature of the characters and environment. It's felt, rather than just heard. No Saturday morning cartoon music, or 90's, trendy, J-pop here (well, okay, a couple!) Yes, a few tracks are missing, but I won't go into that. Perhaps a 2nd version will add them later. I'd buy it in a heartbeat. The Ein Variant is the recommended listening choice. It comes pressed on opaque, two-disc, white and brown vinyl (is it still vinyl?) The sound is clean if a bit aged. The overall dynamics aren't very wide, and invoke a "TV sound." Most of the music is centered, mono-like, in the stereo field and is clean, if a bit distant-sounding. The percussion stands out, however. It is cleaner, and feels like it was mastered separately, and is the most powerful part of the music. The percussion fills the otherwise empty soundstage and sounds more modern, while the horns and other instruments play mostly in the center. It's an odd mix, but makes sense as this was made for TV before the advent of hi-def, widescreen, lossless (digital) audio. It's still quite engaging, as the music is just that good! There are other versions of this album. Red, orange, gold, blue, purple, etc. Marbled, metallic, and translucent, this colored vinyl (?) has a static, crunchy, "aged" sound, probably due to the "glitter" substrate that gives it the sparkly visual. Audiophiles of this soundtrack are urged to seek out the Ein Variant for listening, and the other colored versions for, perhaps, display as they simply don't sound as good.
The first copy I received was more wobbly than me after my 6th beer. Arrived with no damage to box so I can only assume it was something to do with thow they stored the record. However, sent back for a replacement, and that came back in great condition. Absolute favorite anime OST I've ever heard so I'm very excited to now own it on wax! Sounds beautiful! (Leaving at 4 stars since the first one was in such bad condition)
