Excerpted from Tokyopop.com:
Trigun Official Licensed Soundtrack
Get set for the "Stampede" as the sound of techno cowboy music prepares to rock your stereo. This is hardly a honky-tonk with shades of hip hop and electronica to go with that western style. And that's how it should be for the intergalactic adventures of Vash the Stampede in Trigun, the hit anime seen on Cartoon Network and distributed by Pioneer Entertainment. Thankfully though, you don't have to spend $60,000,000,000 to get it.

Bubblegum Crisis 2040 Official Licensed Soundtrack
Bubblegum Crisis 2040 provides an updated look at the Knight Sabers in every way, from fashion to character development and animation to, of course, music. And with its own rock star, Priss, 2040 wouldn't be complete without a modernized soundtrack of digitally crafted techno-rock crafted by guitarist Kouichi Korenaga. Korenaga worked with electronic musicians as well as vocalist Akira Sudo, who provides the voice of Priss, to give 2040 its own distinct cyberpunk sound.

Vampire Princess Miyu Official Licensed Soundtrack
The sounds of Miyu's dark world are presented here in their fine, haunting beauty. The perfect companion to the Vampire Princess Miyu anime, currently being prepared for release by TokyoPop Anime, the Vampire Princess Miyu soundtrack explores traditional and contemporary Japanese folk music, and Kenji Kawai, the composer of "Ghost in the Shell" establishes dark moods that reflect Miyu's perpetual twilight between the human, demon and vampire worlds.
