Subject: Music
In anticipation of tonight's mini-"MADLAX"-a-thon culminating in the premeire of disc 5, I'm listening to my old Yuki Kajiura OST mix, which I haven't fired up in a while.

Damn, the association between those songs and the imagery in the series themselves is powerful! I've said before, and I'll say again, if I heard any of these songs without ever having heard of "Noir" or "MADLAX", I probably would have said "that's nice" and written them off as some sort of "Hearts of Space" generic New Age, and gone back to my lounge-pop and ska. It's the emotional link to the moments and total experience that makes them something more to me now.
