Tracklist taken from this source, although looking at the other No Reality albums, the track times don't match up at all.

This thing actually exists. After years of searching I was able to buy it from YAJ today.
Here are some pics of the front and back. The case has a size of a vinyl holder, but there's a CD inside.
I will add the proper scans when it arrives.

Thanks Nisto. This is kt2's first work. It is very good but in my opinion Abandoner is his true masterpiece. I sound like a total fan boy when it comes to this stuff :P
But anyways, an interesting fact is that several tracks from No Reality are sort of inspirations for Abandoner, and you can definitely hear similarities in some tunes.

There are don't appear to be any exclusive tracks on this release in comparison to UKAS-0001, but there's a data track and overall it's a nice collector's item.

Also I'll have to verify the track lenghts, as mentioned in the first post they could be different from the OST.

Abandoner is quite nice indeed, but "Back in City" is a big plus when it comes to No Reality, as it may actually be my absolute favorite by kt2. "Out of City" might be a close second!

I used to think No Reality is weaker than his other albums, but I've realized that to me, it's mostly about the mood. No Reality is much sparser in instrumentation and in general gives a more contemplative vibe than Abandoner and Lost Child, so that's why I often find myself going for this album than kt2's other stuff. But all his albums are phenomenal, and would love for him to produce a full-fledged album again.

Also, World is Blue is simply magical.

It's funny considering how the games he's scoring are essentially porn games. If so, then they sure are some depressing porn games. :P (or could be that the developers of the respective games just want to write a visual novel for PC's but for the sake of boosting sales, have to add some sex scenes in it).

Interesting point of view, Raziel. I had a rather similar outlook on No Reality, and over the course of time have grown to appreciate this album more and more. Though still nothing is as dear to me as Abandoner's Main Title. It's an absolute favorite, which serves as a great intro to what Abandoner has to offer.

I admire "No Alone Again" from this album. And in general from kt2's stuff "That Moment" from Infina is just so good it could make me cry.

And you're right, those must be some depressing porn games. Seems like they have a whole separate genre for that. They probably did have to add adult content to boost the sales otherwise their work would be noticed along with the non-existent market of "straight" VNs.
