    I have to comment on this most beautiful packaging the album is displayed in. The cover has a nice texture to it while the title is glossy in contrast. Too bad most of the text is Japanese, although the songs names are mostly readable in English. The records themselves look really clean and feel well protected in their sturdy gatefold jacket.
    The sound itself I have to say its rather fantastic. This is a well mastered and pressed release which has indulged me with instruments and sounds I had previously not even noticed. Perhaps because I never watched a high quality version of the series, but I digress. The musicality and atmosphere comes across so well that you finally realize that this had real musicians recorded on stage and not just synthesizers in a studio and many times it feels like youre there, hearing their performance.
    As a whole its one of the crowns in my collection and not just for its rarity. This truly is worth the money as a collector, fan of the series and music lover in general.

    When I said I would compare the 2021 Eva Finally against my 2015 Series soundtrack one of the only tracks they share, I was sort of mistaken. Its the same song, but slightly different. The 2021 release does not feature the guitar solo at all, its just missing strangely enough but adds some backing vocals absent on the 2015. Besides this they are the same track as I can tell, but oh boy are they dissimilar sounding.
    The 2015 is clearly louder and if you wouldnt level these fairly there would be no contest. But even after some normalizing its still clear to me that I mostly prefer the 2015 Chris Bellman cut. Yes, it is less dynamic but compression is not always a bad tool, and the people at Grundman Mastering know how to use it correctly. Many aspects are more appreciable and highlighted on the older release, bass is tighter, the lead vocals come to life and some background performances are more distinct.
    The parts where I felt the newer release might win out are aspects such as those added backing vocals which create a nice atmosphere, the choir segment in the middle, where those dynamics, reverb and an extra spread in the stereo feels more impactful.
    Overall the new cut is more reverb drenched and slightly low end EQd which loses some of that in the room presence which Bellman brought.
    With these almost seeming like different mixes altogether its hard to be fair in a comparison, however I feel more lies in the 2015s favor, and with the omission of the guitar solo, I can not declare it the winner for me.

      Firstly, I have to comment on this most beautiful packaging the album is displayed in. The cover has a nice texture to it while the title is glossy in contrast. Too bad most of the text is Japanese, although the songs names are mostly readable for us other buyers. The records themselves look really clean and feel well protected in their sturdy gatefold jacket. Secondly, for the music itself I have to say its rather fantastic. This is a well mastered and pressed release which has indulged me with instruments and sounds I had previously not even noticed. Perhaps because I never watched a high quality version of the series, but I digress. The musicality and atmosphere comes across so well that you finally realize that this had real musicians recorded on stage and not just cheap synthesisers in a studio and it feels like youre there, hearing their performance.
      With only slight amounts of pops and surface noise I have to commend the job they did on this. As a whole its one of the crowns in my collection and not just for its rarity. This truly is worth the money as a collector, fan of the series and music lover in general.
