This compilation is an excellent opportunity for those who wish to discover or simply to dive back into in the musical atmosphere of the Italian singer Ilaria GRAZIANO and the famous composer KANNO Yôko (Cowboy Bebop, Turn A Gundam, Aquarion Evol, Brain Powerd, Escaflowne, Ghost in the Shell SAC, Wolf's Rain).

The songs are mainly from the anime Ghost in the Shell S.A.C. (n°1, 2, 6, 7 , 9, 10) and from the CD "Cowboy Bebop Tank! The! Best!" (n°4, 5, 13).

So all tracks are composed by KANNO Yôko, including the two unreleased songs: "Un soffio di vento" (n°12) and "RR Lyrae" (n°13). Note the song "From the roof top ~ somewhere in the silence", from Ghost in the Shell SAC Solid State Society O.S.T., is unfortunately not included here.

My favorite tracks are especially those sung in Italian, the mother tongue of Ilaria, such as: "Dew" (n°6), "I can't be cool" (n°7), "I do" (n°10), "Un soffio di vento" (n°11) or "Pearl" (n°13). Really splendid!
Regarding those sung in English, I really like: "Diamonds" (n°5), pretty jazzy played with piano, wood bass and strings.

However, songs I like least are those sung, supposedly, in "French" (n°3, 8). Even for me (francophone), this is simply incomprehensible and so I hardly adhere to it.

To conclude, this compilation is really good but not essential for those already having the Soundtracks of Ghost in the Shel S.A.C., Wolf's Rain or Cowboy Bebop. There are here only two unreleased songs (n°12, 13). Hopefully, they are well realized!
