genji-monogatari-sennenki-ost

Edit: I finally went to google this anime and was quite taken aback that it was about a man’s series of affairs?! Ok, I’m probably not doing it justice describing it in this fashion but that’s pretty much it. Took a quick look into the anime and I realised then that I’m not a period anime fan. Oh well. The OST is still good!!

Thanks to Kitsune, I’ve recently been blown away by a particular album! That album is the OST of  Tales of Genji!! Also known as Genji Monogatari Sennenki! I had little doubts that it will be good even when I first read his post…I mean, it’s written by S.E.N.S.!! S.E.N.S. is an amazing group of two people who create moving instrumental pieces. Their music is typically used in commercials, movies, dramas etc. You name it, they’ve probably done it before! A more recent work of there’s which I’ve mentioned is probably a piece they wrote for Last Friends. LOVE IT!

Anyway, needless to say, this OST is quite breathtaking. I haven’t gone through it entirely (my laptop is broken so access to the internet is limited… *sad*) so I have no absolute FAVOURITE yet but let’s say more than a handful have made me smile! Ones that caught my attention on the FIRST listen: tracks 1, 3, 8, 14, 20, 22  (if you haven’t noticed, I have a BIG soft spot for strings…hehe)

I’m thinking of popping this into my next shopping list at CDJapan!! I can’t have enough of S.E.N.S. works! I recently just purchased the third volume of their 4-part 20th anniversary greatest hits album series!

Must check out! The whole album is available for listening over at IMEEM! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!!
