How many of these have been on the show? Not counting the opening, ending and insert songs, I can remember the "main" theme, which has at least three variations depending on the mood of the scene.

I can't help but miss Takanori Arisawa's compositions, but its not fair to make comparisons.

I like what we've got so far. I'm looking forward to listening to this! The fact that this is "Volume 1" means we still have many new songs coming.

I think there's a good chance that we have heard most if not all of the tracks on the CD. There is a lot of music in this show, but I would definitely argue that the over-reliance on just a couple of leitmotifs makes it sound much less than it is.

So, just for fun, I went through all the episodes so far, picked out the different tracks and tried to match them to the titles on the CD.
A few titles are obvious enough on their own (assuming it's not a weird situation like with the first Pirates of the Carribbean soundtrack where most titles were basically non-indicative of anything), plus tracks tend to be somewhat grouped by theme.
Also note that the timestamps are not the first time a piece is played, it's just the instance where I heard it clearly enough to make my decision.
I also included a certainty ranking: 100% means that there is totally no doubt about the track's identity, 10% means I had no idea and randomly guessed or used the process of elimination.

And the funny thing is, there are still a few tracks left over after I filled all of them in, so there might already be more than one CD worth of soundtrack around, some of that might be included on the next volume, or maybe (but hopefully not) it could be music that will never be released.
I also can't guarantee that some of the similar sounding tracks might actually be part of the same track, starting at different points or something.

Once it's out, it'll be fun to compare how many I got right.

I can't help but miss Takanori Arisawa's compositions, but its not fair to make comparisons.
Why wouldn't it be fair? Takahashi has at this point more experience composing for anime Soundracks than Arisawa ever got, and while Arisawa's scores were really great, it's not like he's an unapproachable Mozart-like figure.
I think When an experienced composer takes on a reboot of a classic series with with a great soundtrack I definitely expect a soundtrack of the same or greater quality, even if it's not the same style.
In my opinion, the soundtrack so far hasn't really measured up. There are some scenes where it worked really great, but often it just feels very generic. Overall, when there's no heroic fanfare going on there doesn't seem to be much energy to it, but it's also not an ambient score that just hangs back and creates atmosphere, so basically I don't think the series really gets that balance.


well this is quick...and I can sense how the series will go from those soundtrack titles...
That generic events that happen in every Adventure anime will continue to happen in this one?
It's not like we got any really spoilery titles like "Digisoul! Meiko's X-antibody Spirit Evolution Theme" ...or something.

That's a lot of songs. I guess most of this is background music then. Still, that's a nice amount for that price.

Dude, seriously? I'm definitely checking the time stamps you posted for each episode. Thank you! (y)(y)

I guess you have a point. I think my nostalgia for Digimon and Sailor Moon makes me think of Arisawa's work as Mozart-like.

Hell yeah. I wasn't expecting an OST so soon. And knowing that it's Volume 1 is a relief. Toshihiko Sahashi is my favourite composer and I've been loving the music, so this is a must-buy for me.

As for the quality of the compositions themselves, all of the music is good, but the music so far isn't a great indicator of Sahashi's pure musical diversity, in the same way, say, the Gundam Seed/Destiny soundtracks were. A lot of the tracks have been variations on the main theme, but I'm hoping that as the series go on, we'll be treated to more of his different styles of music. Hearing some new and different music in the Guardromon episode makes me hopeful.

I know this is a joke but I genuinely want this now.

I think Colon has an a'ight soundtrack. I don't think I would ever listen to it on its own like with some of the other Digimon anime soundtracks though.
