Various Artists Appleseed Original Soundtrack
- Words: Luciana Lopez
- Label: Tofu
Like anime itself, anime soundtracks run the gamut from the commercially soppy to the edgily outstanding. Fittingly, this soundtrack matches the style of Appleseed and its creator, Masamune Shirow (who also created Ghost in the Shell). Big names abound, including Basement Jaxx, Oakenfold, and Carl Craig and Adult., whose "Hand To Phone" is a great intersection of Craig‘s techno skills and Adult.‘s paranoia-laced style. The soundtrack also includes Japanese artist Ryuichi Sakamoto, who turns in the distortion-fueled "Coro," and his countrymen Boom Boom Satellites, who contribute four tracks including the driving opener "Dive For You."
