CD — Noir Soundtrack #2 : Yuki Kajiura

Obviously, the most in-yer-face numbers went on to the first collection, so this one is more of a sleeper than its predecessor. And there are a number of songs (like, with vocals) which come out as generic Celtic/folksy and thus "mostly harmless". Along with the minor-key versions of the main themes, the tracks worth the price of admission in this one are the world-music style Black is Black, Killing, and the Celtic sounding Colusseum : plus the one that makes the whole disk, Le Grand Retour, for which Colusseum is almost a rough sketch.
