Pop artist Aya Kamiki adds two fantastic songs to the soundtrack, making this one of the hottest soundtracks I've heard to date. Composed by Aika Ohno and Hitoshi Okamoto, these songs have an engrossing beat with or without lyrics – Kamiki simply helps to perfect the sound. The first track may sound conventional by jpop standards, however; its upbeat guitar and drums will keep heads bobbing, while EVER SO SWEET offers a much slower and chill closing to the game, perfect for winding down after a presumably demanding story.

The final track serves as an instrumental piece of The World Doesn't Change Even So, which sounds fantastic, but unless you're someone who absolutely can't stand Kamiki – and why are you reading this review – then I see no reason not to just enjoy the first track. Regardless, one cannot complain with more, so treat yourself to a second helping of aural goodness, sans oral beauty (don't turn that into something gross please...).

If you fashion yourself a jpop aficionado and lover of well-performed singles, then make sure you don't pass this gem up. However, make sure to check out 428 ~Fuusa Sareta Shibuya de~'s OST, as well, since these songs were done in concordance with the soundtrack.
