I have listened to the whole Air Original Soundtrack and yes, the music is amazing… A few tracks caught my attention besides Tori no Uta…
- Natsukage (Summer Lights) – We know there is a lyric version made by Jun Maeda and sung by Lia, but the original song sound just as amazing, or even better without lyrics… Don’ get me wrong, the one with the lyrics sounds good too.
- Niji (Rainbows) – It’s a very upbeat and a nice listen… Kinda reminds me of the bubbles Michiru were trying to blow… lol.
- Hanemizu (Splashing Water)- This song obviously have a summer feel to it and you wish you were at a pool or water park… hehe…
Air Orginal Soundtrack also features some emotional tracks like with Kanon, which had Mukai, Tōdo Kōgen and Kaze o Matta Hi. Air has Sōsei and Futari… although I could be missing some of them.
Lastly, Hane is a music box version of Tori no Uta… similar fashion to Angel Beats, My Heart.
Overall, the Air soundtrack like the Kanon and Angel Beats! is just as good. What makes this soundtrack better than the two is the many memorable tracks it has and also how well it captured the summer theme that the whole VN is going at. So, if you can get a hand on this, give it a listen.
Also, I will probably have a full editorial focusing on select Key songs on my Anime Blog in a few weeks.
