Fullmetal Alchemist
Original Soundtrack 3


Composer: Akira Senju
Label: Milan Records / Aniplex Inc.
Release Date: 13 May 2022

Milan Records releases music from the hugely popular anime franchise Fullmetal Alchemist for the first time ever outside of Japan. Available everywhere now are 11 original soundtracks, including music from both the original Fullmetal Alchemist television series and the Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood series, as well as soundtracks from the franchise’s two feature-length films, Fullmetal Alchemist: The Conqueror of Shamballa and Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos...

The third volume in the Brotherhood series contains 31 tracks (1 hr, 06 min, 01 sec) from the anime series, and by now you pretty much know that this is going to be yet another cracking collection of themes.

While there are set pieces that are revisited throughout this three-volume collection they are spread out enough that the same themes don't leap out at you as being over used. It also helps that when they reappear that they are presented differently each time.

Opening/closing songs on this collection include 'Rain' and 'Ray of Light'. I have to commend the show on a constant high quality on all of the "rock/pop" themes that they delivered throughout the life of the series.

Another incredible collection of music that helped to really bring life to one of the greatest anime series of all time.
