My favorite release of an older score would have to be Kritzerland's release of Rising Sun. I never would have imagined anyone would do an expanded release of that one, and the results were phenomenal.

For a favorite current score, right now I'd say Taro Iwashiro's Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet, though it will have some competition once I finally get my hands on Toshiyuki Watanabe's score to Space Brothers.



Thanks for bringing these to my attention! I sampled a 10-minute suite titled Space Brothers BGM Live Medley and was blown away by it. If the rest of the music is anything like this (is it?) then I am so getting it!

As for my most favorite release of 2013, I vote for Wyatt Earp. Brilliant release for a fantastic score! Kudos La-La Land!

I would say that Space Brothers is at times big orchestral and at times smaller ensemble with the same fantastic themes. Disc 3 of the soundtrack has some lovely Russian style ballet pieces that were written originally for the show. There is also a good amount of slower sad pieces and tension pieces. Find a few pieces from the first soundtrack on youtube and you can get a good idea what to expect. [The first soundtrack is the first disc of the official release. It was released first with the blu ray release of the anime.]

From an American label:

Breakfast At Tiffany's -
A timeless classic. Delightful and romantic. One of Henry Mancini's finest scores. Beats everything we are getting in the Christmas batches from various labels into second place.
An absolute winner.

From an European label:

Sunflower -
Another masterpiece by Mancini. Never got the attention it deserves. A lovely release by Quartet Rec.

My pick is Geoff Zanelli's Into the West. This one is a multi-thematic jewel with many highlights that sits favorably alongside works like Last of the Mohicans, Wyatt Earp, and Dances with Wolves.

I still have to listen the latest Piccioni "Le Altre" before I can decide! All new Piccioni were great, but I would not say in my Piccioni top ten. Perhaps "I Magliari" is my favorite in the new batch.

Stelvio Cipriani - 1972 - Timanfaya
Henry Mancini - 1961 - Breakfast At Tiffany's

Overall these are probably the ones that I will remember from this year.
