Ghost in the Shell (Stand Alone Complex OST 1)

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex O.S.T.

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex O.S.T is the first original soundtrack of the Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex anime series, composed by Yoko Kanno. It features the soundtrack and music composed for the first season of the series, and is produced by Kanno, Victor Entertainment and Bandai. Two versions of the CD were released: The original one, and later, the "+" version, featuring two extra tracks, the TV sized opening and closing themes of the second season of the series, Ghost in the Shell: S.A.C. 2nd GIG. This track listing is taken from the "+" version CD jacket.

Early releases of the "+" version were incorrectly mastered and tracks on the CD differ from the track listing. On affected copies the "Velveteen" and "Lithium Flower" tracks were included together as track #8 (total play time of 8:31). As a result, track #9 is actually "Home Stay" (3:57), track #10 is "Inner Universe" (4:55), and track #11 is "Fish-Silent Cruise" with a correct play time of 2:14. Track #12, with a play time of 5:15, is titled "Fish-Silent Cruise (Part 2)". This defect was apparently corrected at some point as current copies do not suffer from this problem.
