One day prior to the official release someone has managed to get a copy of the much-anticipated Panty & Stocking OST, and is proceeding to share it with us on the internet. Three tracks have been uploaded to youtube at the time of posting:
「Fallen Angel feat. Aimee B」 Full size Ver.
「Fly Away」 Full size Ver.
「CHOCOLAT feat.Mariya Ise」 Full size Ver.
These tracks are really awesome! I was surprised to find that Fallen Angel was my favourite of these tracks and much better than I remember thinking from seeing the ED. The excitement over this OST is very high, and with good reason: it’s easily the best anime OST we’ll get released this year! It’s almost like a trip back to an earlier era (just a few years ago), when TV-anime would collaborate with talented and popular musicians to create unique and captivating soundtracks (e.g Samurai Champloo, Infinite Ryvius, Cowboy Bebop, Tokyo Tribe 2). Hopefully GAINAX has reignited a lust for good music amongst anime fans.
Oh, and you should buy this! I wouldn’t usually recommend buying an anime OST, but this is one of those rare gems that’s actually playable as good, standalone music!
