Hmm, I might have to see about getting the other 2 X CDs and the 20th Anniv. Symphonic Concert CD.

And now I'm glad I only have the first Evangelion CD. Although I kinda like the music from Death and Rebirth and am thinking about ordering that.

Actually, I was talking about the story itself being among my favorites. As for 8th MS Team's music, I admit, it ain't the best. I do however really like the opening, and I didn't think the closing theme was TOO bad.
