* - make it stop!
** - eh.
*** - average (good)
**** - special
***** - Wow!
****** - YAHOO!!
Do You Remember Love? - ****
"the song that won the war" ; almost haunting, Minmei's brief shining moment
My Boyfriend is a Pilot - ***
essential Minmei...shows up in nearly all incarnations of Macross
After, in the Dark - **
i'm not a big Sharon fan...her persona is better than her music
SANTI-U - **
a little better but still not my style
"the good Sharon song" - ****
the one Sharon song i really like appears on the 4th soundtrack; it's only
from the movie version of Macross Plus...when she's flying thru Macross City
with a holographic dino-bird
Myung Fang Lone
VOICES - *****
i love this song! it's simple, yet heartbreaking and quietly uplifting;
much like Myung herself
Planet Dance - ***
Fire Bomber's signature song is fun and exciting but nothing special
Charging Loveheart - ****
Loveheart sounds a lot like Planet Dance but is more better...more "charged"
Power to the Dream - ***
a more powerful song, but it lacks something
Holy Lonely Light - ******
the harshest of Fire Bomber's songs; Basara and Mylene sound their
best together and make it one of my favorites
Light the Light - ******
one of my very favorites; the music's breathtaking and the lyrics simply
beautiful; Basara sings it well, Mylene sings it better...but Millia sings
Try Again - *****
another favorite, Try Again is sort of the finale song for Macross 7-they sing it
before the final episode but it fits into the final sequence perfectly (to the point
where even if you didn't like it before you will now!)
(it also appears as the opening song for Macross Digital Mission VF-X)
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Nights - ***
the video really makes this one as it features Rex' cyberpunk biker gang
Diamond Calling - ***
well, it's not bad
Dynamite Explosion - **
this one would be good if it had a few (like 30) less "Dynamite!"s
Parade - ****
much improved over the above - and it has neato keen effects onscreen;
the animated Basara walking and singing through the real world
(these songs are part of Fire Bomber's rep but are really Basara's songs)
My Soul for You - *****
Basara's signature song; just pure Basara : simple, unassuming passion
Remember 16 - ****
although Mylene sings it once, this is Basara's song (she's only 14 when
she sings it anyway!); a sentimenmtal little song, really very pretty
On the Wind - ****
i've never heard it on the show, but it's very Basara...sort of My Soul for
You and Voices combined...
Submarine Street - *
what was he thinking? Basara spends weeks singing this awful song to Sivil,
trying to wake her up...the lyrics are nice but it's painful to listen to!
(again, these are Fire Bomber songs, but they're only performed by Mylene)
My Friends - *****
another favorite and Mylene's best - SO much fun to sing!
Sweet Fantasy - ****
very pretty, very soft, very "girl"
Love It - ****
another girl song; this one on the "girl power!" vein
i'm a big Mylene fan, i think i forgive her a lot
Dakedo Baby! - ***
the second closing song (after My Friends), a little terrifying,
really gets stuck in your head
Kimi ni to Doke - *****
Mylene's heartbreaking "lonely sad song" is her most powerful (it awakens the
spiritia deprived)despite being her most quiet
Pillow Dream - *****
Another lonely sad song, just as beautiful despite lyrics that make no
Flash in the Dark - *****
there is a lot of talent in this family! Emilia's first song is really
rocking - upbeat and spirited
Heart and Soul - ******!!!
but her second song is the best in the series (and any other); this song
is indescribably good! it really is just that good!!!
