Yeah, the OP is one of my recent addictions on my Playlist. Okay, it wasn’t exactly recent: I finished watching Ga-Rei:Zero about months ago, but heck the OP’s still being spammed on my Playlist.
Ga-Rei:Zero is far from the best of its genre or its time (it’s a good series, but well, it’s not that brilliant). The music, however, is on another scale. The OST is fantastic! I absolutely love the music of Zero, especially the OP, Paradise Lost, sung by none other than Chihara Minori.
However, I am somewhat disappointed with the PV version of it. Somehow, I felt that it didn’t quite do justice to how awesome the song is. Yeah, the violins and all looks pretty impressive and the PV itself was pretty well directed. But I felt that it was a little too bland. They could have thrown in more spices (be more creative with the camera angles, the imagery and stuff). The visuals of the PV simply lacked the vibe and that sort of drama to fit the ambience of the song.
