Well, what do you know? I just got round to having a few spins of this recently released single from FictionJunction.
CD Title: TV Anime Sacred Seven Intro Theme “Stone Cold”
Release Date: 3-Aug-2011
Kajiura Yuki and FictionJunction return with their 3rd OP Single ‘Stone Cold‘ that served as the intro theme to TV anime ‘Sacred Seven‘. Fast paced techno beats, swirly guitars back by synths coupled with catchy chorus and fab harmonized vocals made ‘Stone Cold’ one energetic uptempo number. While the anime OP cut did not give me that impression, I did find the full version of the song a tad on the repetitive side after a few listens. However, the trade mark Kajiuran ethereal chorals in the break made for an interesting contrast that lifts the song from being just another average anime song.

Music Post: A sampling of TV Anime “Shinrei Tantei Yakumo Original Soundtrack”
Being an anime fan who loves music, I tend to take note of the music aspect of the anime I’m watching. Thus, I usually ended up checking out the original soundtrack album of the collected compositions and the composer whose scores aroused my aural curiosity. That said, it has been a while since I last share my thoughts on any particular anime soundtrack release. It’s not because there isn’t anything that interest me or that I’d given up gabbing about music. There are in fact, a handful of recent releases that I found to be highly enjoyable and worth my while. It’s just that the lack of time prevented me from giving them a discerning ear which one requires when one wants to write about them. In that regards, I’m happy to be back on track again with my first music post of 2011.
