LiSA's 'This Illusion' was certainly the best thing musically to come out of UBW. Man that OST was such a disappointment, so forgettable. Fukasawa really dropped the ball. The VN soundtrack certainly isn't a masterpiece but at least it had some memorable tunes. Fukasawa's stuff sounds mostly like boring ambient stuff. But to his defense, the sound director didn't use the music all to well with a lot of cutting out during tense moments.
Excellent taste, nigga.
>not liking LiSA
I disagree. I've been looking at the episodes and I don't get how people think the music is bad. It's about on the level as Zero's music to me, or do people forget that Zero had a lot of ambient tracks laced between the chanting?

You know jack shit about sound directing and the purpose of soundtracks. I suggest you never post again so that we don't have to deal with your pretentious igorant ass. UBW's OST was great and varied.
Sound direction-wise the major difference between Zero and UBW is that there's simply a lot /more/ music in UBW. Pretty much all of the music is written for the scene it's played in. Zero on the other hand reused music repeatedly. Not to bad effect mind you, but there's certainly more budget put into UBW's sound.
In terms placement though I'm not seeing any particularly large difference. Maybe the vocals more through more for people? In terms of instrumentation Fukasawa backed off on doing that.
Can anyone read the tracklist?
Only thing I can decipher is Rin's Melody

25 THIS ILLUSION 4:04
26 count it from zero 4:34

I think once people can actually sit down and listen to the music a lot the complaining will stop. People right now who compare it to Zero or the 2006 soundtrack, or the VN soundtrack, have the luxury of being able to pull up tracks and listen to them on their own. You can only listen to stuff in-context right now with UBW.
Just based on how it's played in the show I'm not seeing a decrease in quality.
I think UBW ost is pretty enjoyable. I think I still like Fate/Zero's more at the moment though.
And anyone who enjoys fate is a fucking liar if they say they didn't pop when this shit went off after Rin jumps
>06 Souls to Fight 3:39
>08 Vortex of Fate 4:28
Both are VN tracks if I take the first one as Clashing Souls.
There's nothing wrong with aimer.
I think it has a lot more variety, at least. Zero kept a pretty consistent tone with its soundtrack: brooding, melancholy, and big action, and all with pretty much the same instruments.
Yeah, it's largely unremarkable. It's not awful, but it doesn't hold a candle to Kenji Kawai and Yuki Kajiura's works in the other two adaptations. Still, I'm somewhat curious about the OST release.
This Illusion was just an insert song. Fate's one of those popular properties where the show sells the OP, not the music, so they're not gonna waste that by reusing an old standard when they can promote another artist.
I dropped the anime 3/4th in because of exams and I haven't had a chance to go back and watch the last bit of it but if I am seeing things right, they didn't play a version of Emiya in the entire season.
Can we expect it to appear in the 2nd season?
Archer's Theme is a subtle version of Emiya, you just have to listen. It's the first minute of the song before the piano kicks in.
They're likely saving that part for the Shirou vs Archer fight.
The way the show handled it was they had a guitar covering the "ahh" parts that open the track, and an electric over jams over the progression.
It's subtle, but it's there. The way they work it too is that the guitar riffs play around Shirou whenever they want to hint at his connection to Archer.
Well "Disillusion" isn't the original, that's the one done for the 2006 anime.
And honestly I don't really have a problem with this version, though I think the 2010 mix is my favorite.
>It also had the best drawn Rin
Can't wait until
>Martial arts classes with Tohsaka Rin
>Shrou vs Archer
>Berserker vs Lancer
That did happen, we just didn't see it at the VN nor the anime.
Ah, right, my bad, mistook it with the old VN OP.
Only from time to time.
Excuse the bad quality for the pic, too lazy to look for a good one.
