    I really feel that the score for Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is what tied the show together and helped make it so great. There's so much emotion in it. I feel it just by listening to the music. :-) [5][6][7]

    "Requiem of the Brigadier General" and "Far East Suite" - for me, one of the best themes ever. FMA Brotherhood OST is btw very good ST. Greets from Poland
