Notes:

The soundtrack is a collection of Led Zeppelin-like guitar, some extra instruments here and there, and some amazing sequencing and/or programming. Tsuneo Imahori is one of my favorite artists, and his skills really shine through here. Some tracks (No Beat) are more techno than others, but there's a large range of emotion expressed throughout the various songs.

The soundtrack was used extremely well during the series, but most people feel that it wouldn't stand very well on it's own. However, after listening to it a few times through, it really starts to grow on you. If you've seen the anime through already, it is very reminiscent of some scenes, such as the final gunfight and the first time Vash meets Legato. I have not had the luxury of listening to it before seeing the anime, unfortunately. If anyone can (or has) done this, I would appreciate an addition to this w/u or a /msg.
