Terror in Resonance unreleased stats

It’s been a while since the second soundtrack is out but I only took some time today to clean the music sheets I’ve been maintaining.

You can have a look at these by clicking on the link below:

Terror in Resonance Music Sheets

Some interesting numbers: there were 49 tracks featured in the show, only 13 of them are unreleased. Compared to Wolf’s Rain or Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex, that’s a fairly low number.

I really wanted to be able to listen to the alternative version of ess but that won’t probably happen. Too bad but I’m used to it! 😉
