This disc is Yoko Kanno's definitive Nobunaga's Ambition CD, a "best of" album containing selections from all four of her Nobunaga albums prior to Tenshouki. As all the CDs from which these tracks have been culled are extremely rare and difficult to find, it's the best option to sample a large amount of Kanno's Nobunaga work, and with 22 tracks, a sizeable body of music is represented. There's a well chosen mix of orchestral, solo instrumental, traditional folk and vocals, and the number of different styles is impressive, almost every track owing itself to the sounds of manifold cultures or eras. Certainly, both fans of Kanno's symphonic work and fans of her ethnic and world music, as in Uncharted Waters, will find plenty of material to love here.

Any fan of Kanno's symphonic work will take this disc like lightning to metal.
