LOL, teh sparkles! THEY'RE CONTAGEOUS!!!
That cover IS a bit OOC for Ed, but I don't even care about the OOCness because I'm an avid music lover and it looks so joyous and triumphant...and PRETTY...and it reminds me of August Rush... *__* And I can tell you from experience that there are few things more thrilling in life than conducting an orchestra.
I gotta say, I really dislike most of the Brotherhood soundtrack and the bad placing of it in so many otherwise wonderful scenes (I miss "Bratja" and "Beaming Sunlight" and countless other tracks from FMA so much... *sobs*), but their covers are definitely gorgeous.

Ed looks like he's pulling a lelouch or light from that pic.
THIS. I rofl'd for the longest time. Ed totally is going psycho here and then pulling the Lelouch/Light really had me keeling over. It's kinda weird how happy and excited he is. It's scary. Really scary.
But the pic also looks pretty, I guess. He's on a stage and he's conducting his heart out. Good job, Ed.

Uh... hmm. I was REALLY looking forward to this cover since I LOVED the first two so much (ESPECIALLY OST 2... I couldn't even bring myself to shelf it properly... it stands upright on display on my bookshelf for all to see), but this one... just... O_o
Yeah, I like the concept and the joy of it and the sparkles and energy and red coat. I could even forgive the OOC-ness as well - I think it's just the angle that weirds me out. That combined with the OOC. I guess I still like it though.

Personally, I don't think the second cover was terribly in character either. Can't really see Ed as a peaceful enough person to play/compose music. Possibly after the end of the series, perhaps
I've noticed something though. (Maybe I'm stating the really obvious here, but it isn't until now that all three covers are out that I realised how nicely they fit together). If you look at the cover for the first CD, it looks like Ed's in a creative dry spot, out of ideas for a song. On the second cover, it looks like he's come up with an idea, and now he's composing; writing, experementing, trying to make what he hears in his head come real, giving his idea form. And finally, on the third cover, he's performing on stage in front of a crowd, conducting an orchestra playing his finished work, with an incredibly satisfiying look on his face.

Thanks a lot, Kasumisty. I completely forgot the 3rd OST will be uploaded any time now.
Those you uploaded are the majority of the ones I wanted to hear the most. XD And that last one I don't think I've heard at all in the series, but it's nice, too.
I hope people at least think Brotherhood's BGMs are as good as FMA1's after this OST, though maybe the placement of the tracks could be debatable. Personally, the 3rd OST's tracks are what convinced me Brotherhood had better music. I was really annoyed by the repetition of some tracks and the scarcity of new music in the 30's and 40's. "Mortal Sin" in particular.
