A viewing of the exceptionally
thought-provoking series, 'Paranoia Agent' will beg the disturbing
question, "Is 'Lil' Slugger' coming for you?" If not, then perhaps it'll be
the stream of dark instrumental music from the "Paranoia Agent
Original Soundtrack" that will sink into your subconscious. Composer
Susumu Hirasawa takes listeners on a schizophrenic journey to
unbelievably simple, yet beautifully strange compositions,
relentlessly shifting with the hum of electronic whirring,
breathless beats and infectious chanting spliced in. From the
opening vocal song, "Dream Island Obsessional Park (Yume no shima shinen kouen) " to the eerie
ending, "White Hill - Maromi's Theme," nothing on this 20-track CD
is ordinary music.
