Added an English translation for the title based on Basiscape's tweet.

Just found out about this Album, should be very promising!
I'm loving the composer line-up.
And it's about damn time Basiscape released another Album!!! > :P

Excuse me, Don, if you have this album, can you explain the sound of it, please?

Overall, it's a smorgasbord of sound. Some jazzier themes, some orchestral themes, some rock themes, some Wild Arms sounding tunes, some Japanese inspired sounds, etc.

Chiba's themes are mostly jazzier and orchestral related. Kudo does a bit of the Wild Arms sounding stuff, some rock, some orchestral music, some Japanese sounding themes, and some of the jazzier tunes. Abe mainly does orchestral and rock tunes, Iwata does some Japanese inspired tunes and an orchestral theme.

If you go to the album page on the Basiscape website, you can hear 5 different samples: http://basiscape.com/store_majikoi.html First and last by Chiba, middle 3 by Kudo.

Slightly updated the album info to include Sound Work and Sound Supervisor information. Kanji is 音響制作 and 音響監督, respectively. I left the composer breakdown as it stands, the booklet has a unique way of noting the composer using a composer-specific colored floral design next to each track and a key on the bottom of page 2 that indicates the composer (by last name only).

Wouldn't those normally be translated as "Sound Producer" and "Sound Director" respectively?

I used Sound Production instead since it's a company (entity) not a person, I think it makes more sense that way? Sound Director / Sound Supervisor is probably interchangeable but I changed it anyway.

That makes sense. Good call.

This soundtrack is surprisingly good to my ears after the "meh" of much of DenpaNingen RPG, which doesn't feel as fun as it should, I think. This album is more alive and I think hits Chiba's and Kudo's strong points better.

How come there's no entry for the iTunes release or a tracklist with the official English translation from it? You wouldn't even know it's available on iTunes from looking here.

I don't think there's a "need" for adding an iTunes reprint. This is an entry for the physical release. We can always mention it was also released digitally.
I would not add a reprint personally.. or else we'd have to add tons of reprints from Square, Falcom, Konami, 5pb.
Most of the japanese publishers are now releasing their albums on iTunes too.

By the way, if someone really wants to add the English tracklist from iTunes for that album (is the translation really accurate ?), it's here.

- Capitalized 'be' in track 119.
