Macross Frontier Music Rundown

Recommended Posts

Ok, lets get this show on the road.

For starters, be warned, this will be a LONG post. And for those who haven't watched the whole show BE WARNED there will be SPOILERS when deemed necessary.

Also, this is the first topic i start so any suggestions on how to improve it will be welcomed.

After giving it a lot of thought i decided the best way to give you a rundown of Macross Frontier's music would be to do it on an episode by episode basis.

To help you understand the data presented, here's how it works.

In Each episode i'll list ALL the music played in it, be it BGM's or songs, in the order they are presented in said episode.

Here's how it will look:

00:10 ~ 01:16 --- Welcome to my Fan Clubs Night! SOS ( 1 )

start_~_finish_---_______song or BGM title_________(OST)

To simplify work OSTs will be referenced to as:

1 - OST 1 Nyan Fro

2 - OST 2 Nyan Tra

VC - OST 3 Nyan Tama Vocal collection

Sg1 - “Triangler” Single

Sg2 - “Diamond Crevasse / Sagittarius! 9pm Don’t Be Late” Single

Sg3 - “Seikan Hikou” Single

Sg4 - “Lion” Single

Sg5 - “Sheryl’s Brother Spaceship and More” Single

Sg6 - “Ranka and Bobby’s SMS Platoon Theme and More” Single

Pretty simple.

As for the UNRELEASED tracks (wich were the reason for this exercise in the first place) each will be presented like this:

- When first listed the title will be displayed in Bold and underlined with (UNR) instead of the OST number;

- Following that they will be only in Bold, the rest remains the same.

The titles of these are totally unofficial and given to the track based on key scenes they were used in. If anyone has a better title for any of them, feel free to post them.

If anyone finds any cue or song missing from this list, just point it out. I saw each episode and believe i have picked them all but... you never know...

The start and finish times are based on broadcast raws, different raws or the actual DVDs will have slightly different times but as far as i’ve seen they’re all within a 10 second interval. They should be seen as nothing more than a basic guide line to help you find that particular cue in that particular episode.

The point of this “project” was to find and catalog the unreleased BGM cues, therefore, greater attention will be given to these cues rather than the already published music wich has been reviewed by better people than me. Reference to these tracks will only be made when relevant to the subjet at hand.

I can’t think of anything else right now, whatever comes up, will be adressed in due time. (What this means is... expect extensive foot notes (or as some will soon call them “Westfall rants”) in some episodes and info added/updated/replaced to this section.

------------------------OP1-----------------------

02:18 ~ 03:43 ----- The Target (1)

04:04 ~ 04:47 ----- Vajra Rampage (UNR) (One of the most noticed absenses from the OST, this hard edged track is used mostly in melee combat scenes with the Vajra)

06:47 ~ 07:30 ----- Embarrassment (UNR) (Tit-like dumplings in-a-box, pretty much explains it)

08:10 ~ 09:38 ----- Ai-kun (UNR) (Yep, the little green guy names this one, mostly because of what he does in episode 8, with this same theme)

11:23 ~ 12:17 ----- Shimes of Doom (UNR) (Heavy theme with a doomsday aura about it. Seeing Ozma all bloodied in this scene helped to name it, too)

12:07 ~ 12:14 ----- Eyecatch (UNR)

13:09 ~ 14:44 ----- Shimes of Doom (UNR) (Believe me, its the same track. Called it something else for most of my review until i discovered a larger segment in episode 23 and found this is part of it)

FINAL THOUGHTS

Here ends the Episode by Episode run of Macross Frontier's music

Although its still under construction and being updated where needed, from this point on you can post your replies, give me your thoughts and feel free to point out any thing you believe is wrong.

The main post will be updated with relevant information and further documentation i might find.

Nice work! Been looking through the thread during its various stages as you built it up. What specifically interested me, as probably with many others, is the nice overview this gives you of all the unreleased BGM's there are. Like I mentioned elsewhere a BGM compilation seriously needs to happen.

This version of Aimo was sung in English right? Is it available on one of the albums?

I think its the same weird language Kanno/Robin have used in the other versions. As for availability, as stated in the list, it was released in the Vocal Collection (VC). It's track #20 of Disc 1, to be more precise, here as a standalone track and full version by Maaya Sakamoto. It's also used in edited form in both versions of the Nyan Nyan Service Medley in both OST 2 and the Vocal Collection.

Thanks very much. I actually just grabbed that Album and yeah it's like some Zentrati made up language or something that they use. I could have sworn it was English that I was hearing though at the end of the episode. I'll just have to check it out again.

Much appreciate the help! B))

Hi

After 2 years without news, a new soundtrack introduces a couple alterations.

I'm only making a couple of changes, related to previously unreleased BGM, not songs.

Macross F Sayonara no Tsubasa ~ netabare album the end of “triangle” includes 5 instrumentals wich apeared on the series. They are:

-Track 02 - "The Isle of Mayan", wich replaces the UNR track "Legend of Zero" in episodes 10, 16, 19 and 21;

-Track 05 - "Ai-kun to Watashi", wich replaces the UNR track "Sad Ranka" in episodes 16 and 19;

-Track 08 - "Nejire Trauma", wich replaces the UNR track "Shimes of Doom" in episodes 3 and 23;

-Track 11 - "Wilder’s", wich replaces the UNR track "VF-25 Messiah" in episodes 12, 14, 16 and 22.

Track 16, "F Refrain", is also mostly instrumental but i don't relate it to any of the unreleased music clips i had, so it's probably a new track exclusive to the movie. With the 2 movies released and no other Macross F related projects on the horizon, except for the 2nd movie's DVD and Blu-Ray release, this is probably the last soundtrack coming out and, therefore, the last BGMs. Hopefully they might still use the Blu-Ray release for another CD but with mostly songs coming out (the last BGM came out around the same time i made this thread), i must sadly accept that this is it. At least we got these 4, being "Wilder's" the best of the 4, IMHO.

don't know how i missed this when you originally started it, but thanks for compiling.

really curious about what you call the unreleased track "Star Date", so i'll go and re-watch.

the irony is, while there's a lot of BGMs that haven't been released, there's a couple of released tracks which i can't trace to an episode: "is this LOVE?" and another called "Twinkle" (or "Kira"). really love these two songs, but for the life of me, i just can't place them in the series :wacko:

The track "Vajra Rampage" was never released on a soundtrack was it. Too bad, I really like it.

Yeah, that one was/is a personnal favorite. I would love to have a complete BGM score but if i had to choose just a few to a possible future CD, that would be one of them.

The other absolute must would be "Hard Chase", i loved that bit ever since i first saw episode 2, it's an awesome and fast bit with bits of many favorites thrown into the mix. "Wilder's", previously UNR "VF-25 Messiah" was another one but fortunatly, here it is.

Yeah, "Kira Kira" was only used on episode 5 "Star Date", if memory serves me right, "Is This Love?" was not used. Believe me, if it's not on the list, it was not on the show. :)

Besides those, other tracks that were not favorites or hardly used were released while others that were feature more heavily didn't. Go figure.

At the time i made this review i cut all the bits of unreleased music. Unfortunatelly any atempt to remove vocals and SFX has had poor results. I can't understand the why the japanese releases feature mostly 2.0ch audio instead of 5.1ch. With a 5.1ch track one could try to get a cleaner score (i'm doing it now for Transformers Prime) but with 2.0 it's virtually impossible. Removing the now released bits, there are still 142 clips making 2h 11m 34s. These have vocals and SFX and some are repeated from other episodes but they are the bulk of unreleased music. If anyone wants them, PM me.
