Listening to all of my favourite theme songs and such performed by a grand-scale orchestra was mesmirising! The songs are greatly and proffessionally written and the performance is just lovely. It was amazing to listen to and it was fun to hear the best songs from the anime in this way, especially Mikuru's song.

This album is worth every penny! I was very surprised that they were able to make classical versions of songs like "God Knows" and "Lost my Music". I have watched the TV anime so I recognise most of the songs. One thing that I am disappointed with is that the vocals are not as breathtaking as the orchestra. They are not terrible, just not amazing. Overall I am very happy I bought this and encourage anyone that is a fan of Haruhi Suzumiya or even just a fan of classical music to buy this.
I just want to say that I've never had the opportunity to watch nor had any previous knowledge about this anime, even after hearing rave reviews about it... so, why I picked this album up in the first place, I'll never know. Maybe it was the fact that it said Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra on it. Anyways, when I fired this album up, I didn't know what to expect. What I received was one of those defining moments of why you always keep an open mind when it comes to music. "This... is a REALLY good album!" I found myself saying out-loud. It's such cheery music, the orchestrations are beautiful, and I found the melodies to be very pleasing! I have no knowledge of the source music, so I wasn't able to rely on the typical 'nostalgia factor' I sometimes use for more sub-par anime/game albums, and while I'm sure it could still be the case for others, really, anyone can enjoy this album. The orchestrations felt so natural, I really wondered, "did this anime have an orchestral backing to begin with?" It's unfortunate, however, that the vocals we're not exactly up to the same standard as the instruments. Not to say they were terrible, I just felt they could have used some better talent. Again I'll emphasize, "the vocals are not bad" they did not deter from the enjoyment of the music whatsoever. I highly recommend this album. If you enjoyed albums such as, Smashing... Live!, Inuyasha Kokyo Renka ~Wind~, or even the orchestrated tracks on the Kingdom Hearts albums, you'll definitely get a kick out of this. After listening to it, do a search on the internet for it, I found it pretty entertaining reading the comments of people's skepticism of this when the original concert was first announced. :)
Suzumiya Haruhi no Gensou’s release was met with some skepticism from two fronts. The first had to do with TAMUSIC’s colossal failure in The Recital of Haruhi Suzumiya, which raised the question as to whether an orchestrated Haruhi album could actually be done competently. The second related to the fact that much of Haruhi’s BGM wasn’t exactly memorable because after looking through this album’s track list, I couldn’t say I was able to recall any of the melodies beyond Shostakovich’s “Leningrad” Symphony and the songs like “God Knows,” “Bouken Desho Desho?,” and “Hare Hare Yukai.” The latter issue isn’t as much a problem since context, while helpful, isn’t a necessary component in making this album enjoyable and thankfully, the former concern doesn’t raise its ugly head when you have Shiro Hamaguchi doing the orchestral arrangements. With his solid track record in arranging Final Fantasy music to piano and orchestra, there is reason to hope that he can work his magic with Haruhi. By starting out so commendably, Hamaguchi sets a high bar for his arrangements and the succession of pieces manages to meet these lofty expectations. As we go further into the album, we’ll find that most of the pieces are the result of combining various themes from Haruhi’s BGM into a cohesive medley. Even though my memory of Haruhi’s music is spotty at best, I still found most of the medleys to be enjoyable since the transitions from one theme to another are handled quite well. From looking at the music here, Hamaguchi’s efforts yield a solid album through and through. There are a few issues that mostly crop up as a result of Aya Hirano’s inability to sing, but it’s not so bad as to ruin one’s listening experience. I wouldn’t go as far as to rate it higher than the ARIA piano albums, but it’s still really good and worth a listen as its excellent arrangements work well in capturing our favorite moments in Haruhi back when the show wasn’t looping endlessly.
