The song samples posted below are great. Slow and sad compliments the most emotional scenes of their respective series very well.

The song samples posted below suck. Slow and sad doesn't mean good music.

It's such a shame that the guy get overshadowed by his ex-wife, Yoko Kanno. most people credit Escaflowne as a work of Kanno, but it was actually a collaboration of the two musicians. Hajime Mizoguchi composed lots of tracks on the soundtrack. and most of my personal favorite tracks were composed and arranged by him.

Criminally underrated. wish he would make a comeback to the industry.
