I don’t remember much about Stand Alone Complex, probably because I saw it what? 10 years ago?
But the music was awesome.
I should really re-watch it. Especially since I can’t come up with much to say about it. But goddamn, that music though.
Written by Youko Kanno, who always writes excellent stuff, and sung by Russian signer Origa, both the openings to SAC and 2nd GIG have stuck with me in particular whilst the series haven’t.
They’re beautiful and haunting, mystified somewhat by the Russian lyrics meshing in with English, and the drum machine and electronic influences make both songs extremely catchy.
