EXEC_COSMOFLIPS/. by KOKIA of off the CD 咲夜琉命 ~SAKIYA=RUMEI~ Ar tonelico III hymmnos concert side.Blue

and

Haresugita Sora no Shita de by 志方あきこ off of the CD RAKA

I could easily listen (and have) to those two songs alone for an hour.


However, the second one doesn't count as an Ar tonelico song.

how so? I do understand that it does not have hymnos in it (to my knowledge) but it is a part of the Ar Tonelico genre. Here is a (poorly) translated description of the CD:

Akiko Shikata RAKA /

The long awaited 2nd album release in three months and one year of community Akiko Shikata charismatic game music diva! Sanskrit sounds fantastic Italian Japanese ethnic incorporating the essence of vocal overdubs and + classical own words put the lyrics etc ... Cutting edge, borderless stateless POPS healing. Was launched in February 2006, HIT games PS2 game industry was abuzz with "girl-use at the end of the world continue Ar Tonelico" theme song "hill claim-Harmonics EOLIA-". Arrange a full version of the eagerly-awaited "-EXEC_HARVESTASYA/.- hill claim" recorded. PS2 was released in July 2006, also "funeral flowers come" multi-ending song of "Spring told-Raggi di primavera-" "Dawn-Aurora-" and recorded the song without being included in this two-game soundtrack have been included only in the works now. Taro Hakase participation label, music producer one more!

(Original Japanese):
RAKA/ 志方あきこ

ゲームミュージック界のカリスマ歌姫・志方あきこ1年3ヶ月ぶりとなる待望の2ndアルバムリリース!! ヴォーカルの多重録音+クラシカルかつエスニックなエッセンスを取り入れた幻想的なサウンドに日本語・イタリア語・サンスクリット語・自作語 etc…を駆使した歌詞をのせた、ボーダーレスな無国籍ヒーリングPOPS。2006年2月に発売され、ゲーム業界騒然となったHITゲームPS2『アルトネリコ 世界の終わりで詩い続ける少女』の主題歌「謳う丘 -Harmonics EOLIA-」。ファン待望のフルアレンジヴァージョン「謳う丘 -EXEC_HARVESTASYA/.-」を収録。また2006年7月に発売されたPS2『花帰葬』のマルチエンディング曲「春告げ -Raggi di primavera-」「黎明 -Aurora-」を収録し、この2曲はゲーム・サントラに収録されずに、今作品にのみの収録となっている。さらにレーベル・プロデューサーである葉加瀬太郎が1曲参加!!


Maybe I am missing something and this CD just includes songs from Ar Tonelico and is more of a compilation of different songs?

The only song from Ar tonelico proper is Singing Hills -EXEC_HARVESTASYA/.-, and the others are either songs that Shikata made for the album proper, or songs she made for the Hanakisou visual novel. In other words, aside of the Singing Hill remix, it doesn't have any connection to Ar tonelico.

Yeah, what aquagon said...Harvestasya was the only remotely AT song, but the album was a solo album...

That said, Haresugita Sora no Shita de is one of my favorites of her's period...

Chronicle_Key is my first love.
Method_Metafalica (the Cloche version) is just breathtaking.
Ec Tisia is simply a pure eargasm. The three opening songs are rearranged in a stunning beautiful way.

I played 1,2,3 consecutively
not only the music, but
the mood in story and reason why the song is created also take effect

the top 5 is:
1. Expressive Hill ~Harmonics EOLIA~
2. METHOD_METAFALICA/. (without EXEC)
3. EXEC_CHRONICLE_KEY/.
4. EXEC_SPHILIA/.
5. EXEC_FLIP_ARPHAGE/.

I also like:
EXEC_RIG=VEDA/.
EXEC_RE=NATION/.
EXEC_PHANTASMAGORIA/.
Singing Hills ~Harmonics FRELIA~
METHOD_REPLEKIA/. (TOO often heard)

I like em all. They are all so amazing and none trumps another. Whether it's the songs in the game or from the extra CDs.
