If there are soundtracks close to perfection, the Aka soundtrack would immediately jump to mind.
If you exclude the Engrish-ridden Suna no Shiro (while musically-wise it is far from being bad), this score mixes entertaining and magnificiently arranged by artists from SoundUnion, feel (now Elements Garden), Little Wing.

Excellent piano, flute, guitar, violin et al. performance! Really hotly recommended.

Personal picks (I'll try to list only a few!!):
T1-04: feel - jericbo
T1-06: 水月陵 - 沈む日
T1-09: feel - 灼けた日差し
T1-13: feel - 終章
T1-18: feel - 古城
T1-24: milktub - Desert
T2-02: まにょっ (Little Wing) - 西へ
T2-11: 木蓮 - 想い -風に舞うしるべ-

I can't argue with that. It's still one of my all-time favorites.

The cover is actually in Urdu, not Arabic.

Should ヴ be ブ?

You are right, didn't even check the obi.

The Arabic string we have doesn't quite match up with what's on the booklet... is this just me being deceived by some kind of font issue or something? The part at the far left of the booklet front looks different from what we have, which is:
ميتيبو
The dots don't match up. On the booklet, at the text on the far left (I'm trying not to say "beginning" or "end" ), there are a couple of characters separated from a string with double-dots on the bottom, top, and bottom again, going to the right. The characters at the far left have double dots at the bottom on the booklet. But in our text, there is only one dot. Why is this?

I'm sorry if the way I'm explaining it is stupid, I don't really know much about Urdu, Arabic, or whatever else.

EDIT: When giving credits for certain songs in the booklet, they write Noriyasu Agematsu's name in kanji, but the fourth character of his name in the booklet is so not 康. Or the font they use just butchers that character completely. Because it's so not 康.

Looks like 康 to me, although the text isn't all that big so there's some bleeding and some of the thin strokes of the 广 and ヨ parts are broken. It'd be a lot clearer with better scans I think.

Maybe, but I'm staring right at the physical booklet and I still don't see it ;__; I know it's the real kanji for his name, but sometimes some funky stuff gets published on these soundtracks, so I just wondered... but it could just be a really weird looking 康.

It just so does not look like it to me.

I'll take you guys' word for it then, it must just be me.

I'm still curious about the Arabic though. Am I off about that in a similar way - maybe it's just a font thing or something?

Randomly clicked on 'Past Dreams' in iTunes. Amazing track.

Two questions:

First, any opinions on using "Sunagin" rather than "Suna Gin" for the romanization of track 1 "砂銀"?

Second, on the front of the Obi it says: "Dear..." series-42.

Does anyone know what other albums are in that series?

I was curious, so I took a look at other Lantis albums released in the same timeframe. There are quite a few of them. I think any album related to an ero-game or visual novel around that time on that label is a candidate. There are some that we know because we have obi scans.

Nice! Thanks for finding those. I actually have one of them already, Shuffle! Original Soundtrack. And two more not on your list there that I just found when looking at the spine cards of the CDs on my shelf:
