Review
While this is a Yoko Kanno anime soundtrack cd, there are two vocal tracks on it that are sung by Maaya. The first is Mameshiba, which is the ending song to Chikyuu Shouja Arjuna. Mameshiba was previously released as a single and is also on Maaya's 3rd album, Lucy. The other track is Bike, an image song. Bike is one of those semi-mellow yet uplifting Maaya songs. It's the only "new" Maaya song on this cd.

A couple of other tracks on this cd worth noting are 19 and 21. Track 19 is a different version of Kuuki to Hoshi that was used in the first episode of the anime. This version is sung by Chinatsu Yamamoto, and in language that is not Japanese nor English. I'm not sure what language it is, but if someone out there knows, please drop me a line.

Track 21 is an instrumental version of Mameshiba, and is actually a bonus track. It's slow and moody in contrast to the vocal version sung by Maaya. Quite a nice bonus I must say.
