Sooo I'm new to the boards and havent had the chance to read each and every single post yet. SO if this is repetative, I'm very sorry. I just finished watching episodes 1-51 of FMA, and really really enjoyed the entire series. I think what I most enjoyed was the music which encompassed the entire series throughout it. Woodwinds and percussions that are pleasing to the ear, so obviously the orchestrated soundtrack really did it for me.
But anyway to my more immediate concern, did anyway else feel that the 4 tracks. Fukai Mori "deep forest" (Full Metal Alchemist Original Soundtrack 2), Dante (Full Metal Alchemist Original Soundtrack 2), Kaichou "harmony, unity" (Full Metal Alchemist Original Soundtrack 2) Keiji "apocalypse" ( Full Metal Alchemist Original Soundtrack 2) Butou "dance" (Full Metal Alchemist Original Soundtrack 3).
Kaichou was my favorite, along with Dante with its melancholy chanting.
Which of those songs was your favorite since they all share the same melody, and in what parts of the anime did you find them to best compliment???

Dante and Butou. I only have OST 3, not yet 2, so I don't recognize the other ones (although I would've heard them at some point) but I have an obsession with Butou. It's just awesome. I heard it on the ost before I heard it on the show so I got all excited when I heard it finally on the show. I can't really express in words what it is about the song I like, but I'm willing to bet the strong, faster paced beat has something to do with it.

Speaking of this song, its playing on my media player
I have to say that this song, makes me melt lol if you understand that. I like Dante moreso than Butou. The lady's voice is so soft and so emotional and I love it. I can play Butou on my keyboard, that was a feat in itself, but I can do it now haha.

The lady who did the vocals on Dante is very talented, I'll admit. The first time I heard that tune, it gave me goosebumps. o_o That's how good it was.
Basically, I pretty much like all the variations to the piece, but Dancing (Butou, yes?) really caught my interest because it was so fast and it really did sound like a waltz, or some catchy tune you can really dance to. [spoiler]Well, Ed and Rose were dancing to it, no? I don't exactly support their pairing, and Rose was just under Dante's control, but it was a nice scene.[/spoiler]

"Dante" gives me goosebumps just about every time I hear it. It's so... Haunting. I'm glad that I have OST 2, as it has two of my favorites, Dante and Deep Forest. I can't say I remember Keiji and Kaichou. I don't have OST 3, but I know when Butou plays thanks to the posts above. I like it as well; so fast-paced, yet creepy at the same time.

I like Kaichou. It has an air of urgency to it, yet it maintains the creepy feel that the theme is supposed to bring out. Fukai Mori is quite nice too. It has a sluggish pace that could lull you into a false sense of security, until you remember who this theme is for. About Dante... It gives me the creeps, like some not-quite-human creature singing, entrancing the listener.
