Released in 2017, this album is a 20th anniversary nod to the influence J.A. Seazer had on Revolutionary Girl Utena. The content is all entirely new, except for a version of Absolute Destiny Apocalypse, billed as the "Complete" version with extended lyrics that may or may not have originally been there, but indeed are now. The cover is a piece by the creator of Madoka, Gekidan Inu Curry, depicting a very stylized Utena-horse and Anthy in the iconic pose of Jacques-Louis David's Napoleon Crossing the Alps.

This is essentially a sequel to OST 7, Revival Record of the Rose Egg SOFIA, in that it has long, otherwise unrelated songs by Seazer, and so is basically candy for Seazer fans and weird noise for everyone else. The song titles and lyrics are in typical obtuse Seazer style, with experimental swings in carnival music and a medley track, Skyscraper 8823 Living in Vimal Palace, that ended up one of my favorites.Index Librorum Prohibitorum -Angelic Hallucination «Lewd Demonic Theory» Compilation-also starts with a very obvious nod to Carl Orff's Carmina Burana, a song otherwise popularized in One Winged Angel, Sephiroth's battle music in Final Fantasy VII. Other personal stand-outs are The Stranger’s Lullabye, and My real me is scattered, but there really aren't any tracks Seazer trash like me can dislike.

People who purchased the album through Japan's large Diskunion website were treated to a bonus disc with three extra tracks as listed below. Two are familiar to Utena fans, with Missing Link being the climactic music in episode 39, and The Inversion of Me and My Room being from the game, Someday My Revolution Will Come. These are live recordings by Seazer using his theater troope: 'Theater Laboratory - Universal Gravitation' [Engeki jikken-shitsu - ban'yū inryoku].


A note: The given names are predominantly based on the Utena Translation Project's original translations of the songs. Where a song title has become widely accepted as different, ie. The Sunlit Garden instead of The Sunny Garden, I have used the more popular name. Punctuation has been altered to better match the Japanese tracklists.

The "Comparison" options when available are side by side multiple translations, romantization, and Japanese, depending on availability. They're an awesome and surprising resource, and I hope you check them out.

Everlasting memory, forgotten:
In the land of that future rebirth,
There is a girl with the spellbinding eyes of Psyche.
Is she nature?
Succubus?
Incubus?

A rhythm receding in fear:
In that symphony of nature magic,
There is a girl who imitates the blood-clock.
Is she nature?
Succubus?
Incubus?

Your relative existence and
The truth of my absolute ideal existence,
Hermaphroditus:
That is from a book of the heavenly bodies.
I will become the seventeenth-century emperor,
Rudolf of Roses.
I will become a stern, peaceful emperor.

The original elements (boyhood records) of creation:
In that longed-for album of sincere untruths,
There is a girl masked in flame.
Is she the sun?
Succubus?
Incubus?

The reticent boy-ghost:
In that unfathomable lake of the universe,
Complete emptiness—there is a girl who simulates fantasy.
Is she temptation?

Of completely forgotten, undying memories,
There is the girl with the obsessed eyes of Psyche
Is she natural?
A succubus?
An incubus?

In the spontaneous magical resonance
Of the beat that shrinks in uncertainty,
There is the girl who mimics a blood clock
Is she history?

Your relative existence
And my existence, which in truth should be absolute
Hermaphroditus
That is a natural book
I am a seventeenth-century emperor

Of the original music of creation {Chronicle of Youth},
There is the girl disguised by firelight

In the mysterious lake of all creation

Stranger’s Lullaby
EJ Translation

Heard at the end of a dream
The stranger’s lullaby
“Goodbye to me, myself
And an empty hello to this morning”
My beloved shed skin
Everything comes to an end eventually
I am leaving on an eternal journey
Leaving behind my still-warm shed skin

“Goodbye, myself
Goodbye to me, myself
And an empty hello to this morning
Goodbye, myself”

Remembered at the end of a dream
The stranger’s lullaby
“Goodbye to me, myself
And an empty hello to this morning”
It drifts down slowly
So light, like the downy hair of your cheek
I am leaving on an eternal journey
Leaving behind the shed skin that I can still remember

“Goodbye, myself
Goodbye to me, myself
And an empty hello to this morning
Goodbye, myself”

Sung at the end of a dream
The stranger’s lullaby
“Goodbye to me, myself
And an empty hello to this morning”
Looking to the east, I say “goodbye”
Looking to the south, I hum
The stranger’s lullaby
Leaving behind the shed skin I’ll never return to

“Goodbye, myself
Goodbye to me, myself
And an empty hello to this morning
Goodbye, myself”

Étranger Lullaby
Translation by allegoriest

I heard the end of the dream
The Étranger Lullaby
“Goodbye to myself
Hello to the morning’s emptiness”
I will shed my beloved self 
Soon, everything will come to an end
I will have completed my eternal journey
It will still be warm, My body that’ I’ve shed

”Au revoir moi même
Goodbye to myself
Hello to the morning’s emptiness
Au revoir moi même"

I remembered the end of the dream
The Étranger Lullaby
“Goodbye to myself
Hello to the morning’s emptiness”
Very slowly, the nothingness rises
So softly, like downy hair
I will have completed my eternal journey
I still remember, My body I’ve shed

”Au revoir moi même
Goodbye to myself
Hello to the morning’s emptiness
Au revoir moi même"

I sang to the end of the dream
The Étranger Lullaby
“Goodbye to myself
Hello to the morning’s emptiness”
I head to the east “Farewell”
I head to the south as I hum
The Étranger Lullaby
And I shall not return to the body I’ve shed

”Au revoir moi même
Goodbye to myself
Hello to the morning’s emptiness
Au revoir moi même"

L’Etranger’s Lullabye
Translation by Katie

At the end of the dream, I heard
L’Etranger’s lullabye.
“To my personal self, I say goodbye,
And to this morning’s emptiness, hello.”
To the empty shell of my beloved self,
Given time, everything will end, will die.
I embark upon an eternal1 journey,
Leaving my still-warm body behind.

-
Goodbye, myself.
And to this morning’s emptiness, hello.
Goodbye, myself.”

At the end of a dream, I remembered
L’Etranger’s lullabye
“To my personal self, I say goodbye,
And to this morning’s emptiness, hello.”
Ever so gently. I soared
Ever so gently, like feathers on a breeze.
I embark upon an endless journey
Leaving my still-remembered shell behind.

-
Goodbye, myself.
And to this morning’s emptiness, hello.
Goodbye, myself.”

At the end of a dream, I sang
L’Etranger’s lullabye
“To my personal self, I say goodbye,
And to this morning’s emptiness, hello.”
As I head south, “goodbye.”
As I head south, I sing to myself.
L’Etranger’s lullabye.
I leave my still-unchanged shell behind.

-
Goodbye, myself.
And to this morning’s emptiness, hello.
Goodbye, myself.”

We transcend, becoming the impossible object.
Forgetting and casting away our selves,
We forget, becoming caught in vague inclinations

Yes,
resounding, ascending, bearing fruit, being
Yes,
exchanging, filling, emptying, becoming

[EJ Translation]
Monastic Life * Is* A Flesh Apocalypse
Translation by EJ

Phlegm, blood, moisture, bile
In other words,
a flesh apocalypse

A filthy wind in the nose
A filthy sea in the throat
A filthy darkness in the stomach
The erotic reproduction of excretion

Lust, passion, desire, selfishness
In other words,
a form apocalypse

A shadow-beast wind in the heart
A devil sea in the soul
A repulsive darkness at the end of libido
The erotic reproduction of the witchcraft of abstinence

A dialectic smeared with blood
A dialectic smeared with juice
A dialectic smeared with fluid
A dialectic smeared with dissipation

Eros, agape, gnosis
The holy semen of
Carpocrates

Pleasure is destiny
We are subjects who are unable to transcend
Forgetting all about me
We are stagnating in an inclination towards vague oblivion

Yes
* we ring * we become * we give birth * we are
Yes
* we are * we internalize * we are not * we are

12. My Real Me is Scattered [3:59]
[allegoriest]  [Lyric Comparisons/Raws]
My Real Me is Scattered
Translation by allegoriest

My real me is scattered (scatter scatter scatter scatter)
My real me is scattered (scatter scatter scatter scatter)
Like constellations, galaxies and planets (scatter scatter scatter scatter)
Here and there, I am scattered (scatter scatter scatter scatter)
Like infinite cells (scatter scatter scatter scatter)
Here and there, I am scattered (scatter scatter scatter scatter)
Just like a sketched drawing (scatter scatter scatter scatter)
Like paint spattering (scatter scatter scatter scatter)

My real me is scattered
(scatter scatter scatter scatter)
My real me is scattered
(scatter scatter scatter scatter)

Or maybe, think of it as
I am fantastical books, therefore I exist
I am illusory publications, therefore I live
I am the cryptid dictionary, therefore I continue to change
I am that which your dreams become

Or maybe…
I exist in your gaze
I am who your words speak of
I am the movement of your strength
I am that which your dreams become

Ahh, my self of the illusory vision
Is that which my gaze becomes
My own self is my library of the human body

My own me is my (My real me is scattered)
My own me is my (My real me is scattered)
My own me is my (My real me is scattered)
Here and there scattered scattered I am I am scattered scattered
My own me is my (My real me is scattered)
Here and there scattered scattered I am I am scattered scattered
My own me is my…

[EJ Translation]
My real me is scattered
Translation by EJ

My real me is scattered 
(scattered, scattered)
My real me is scattered 
(scattered, scattered)
Like constellations, nebulae, planets
Scattered here and there, diffuse, sprinkled
Like eternal cells
Scattered here and there, diffuse, sprinkled
Just like a pointillist painting
Like the painting technique of spattering

My real me is scattered 
(scattered, scattered)
My real me is scattered 
(scattered, scattered)

Or possibly you could think of it like this:
I am that which exists in accordance with an imaginary book
I am the one who exists in accordance with an illusory publication
I continue to change in accordance with the Book of Imaginary Beings
I am the one who transforms in your dreams

Or…
I am the one who exists in your gaze
And speaks with your words
I am the one who moves under your power
And transforms in your dreams

Ah, my illusory, fantastical me
Is the one who transforms in my gaze
My me is my human body library

My me is my
My me is my
My me is my
Here and there, scattered, of course, scattered
My me is my
Here and there, scattered, of course, scattered
My me is my…


13. Mask of the Middle Ages «Visor» [5:45]
[Hiraku]  [Lyric Comparisons/Raws]
Medieval Masked Man
Translation by Hiraku

Visor!!!
When the time has come for the sacrificial spiritual war
Dawn arrives as the fortress has been smashed to rubbles
Diving deep beneath the underground of that ancient castle
Enveloped in the iron of flames, is the man of darkness
Visor--
Visor--
Medieval Masked Man!!

Searing into the skin is the art of alchemy
Transmutation of metals in this world of illusory mankind
Chanting incantation into this pale, dark evening
Crystal ball subjected to countless endurance experimentation
Visor--
Visor--
Medieval Masked Man!! Visor!!

Million candles Apothecary workbench
Destiny of the heart of the full moon
Time can also tell the tinkling echos of the gold
All it takes is to seek within your conviction
Visor--
Visor--
Medieval Masked Man!!

Launch! Send a Darkness Arrow!
I shall release an arrow of darkness!
That enigma - Lightning
That enigma - Cruelty
That enigma - Absence
That enigma - Nothing there is to know

Vi-- Vi-- Vi-- Visor--
Vi-- Vi-- Vi-- Visor--
Vi-- Vi-- Vi-- Visor--

[Katie]
Mask of the Middle Ages: “Visor”
Translation by Katie

Wiser
Time is a war of spiritual sacrifice.
The ramparts of dawn are being smashed apart.
Diving underground that old castle,
Wrapped in iron and flames, a person of darkness
Wiser
Wiser
Medieval mask

Emblazoned on the skin of the alchemist,
The phantom-figure’s world, (to) alchemize
A spell chanted in the dark blue night
An experiment of unmeasurable patience, the glass bulb
Wiser
Wiser
Medieval mask

A million candles, a medicinal brick
Destiny and spirit and the full moon
Not even knowing time, the metal brings resoundancy
That gaze stays fixed on its own beliefs.
Wiser
Wiser
Medieval mask

Launch! Send a darkness arrow!
Come, fire an arrow of darkness!
That mystery, lightning
That mystery, insensate
That mystery, brutal
That mystery, unknown

Wi, Wi, Wiser
Wi, Wi, Wiser
Wi, Wi, Wiser


14. Earth Prison Panopticon [4:33]
Earth Prison Panopticon
Translation by Katie

Monitored by the Panopticon (full-view surveillance prison),
We become solitary prisoners of the world-prison
That is already the same as a machine
Connecting like screws and hinges
Transmitting: pipe, tube, hose

Monitored by the Panopticon (full-view surveillance prison),
We become solitary prisoners of the world-prison
There we contemplate:
Let’s know even further isolation.
Let’s enter even further isolaton.
Let’s anticipate even further isolation.

Isolation-lation, isolation-lation
Isolation-lation, isolation-lation
Isolation-lation, isolation-lation
Isolation-lation, isolation-lation

Aaah
Aaah
Monitored by the Panopticon (full-view surveillance prison),
We become solitary prisoners of the world-prison

At the end, I wish to
Fly through the air, go ten thousand miles in the deep sea,
Invent all forbidden machines
Become lost from public memory

[Verthandi]
The Inversion of Me and My Room
Translation by Verthandi

The umbilical cord, the rope that symbolizes life,
is the cosmic swing at the end of the cosmos
That cord, furiously swinging,
By the recoil, dances through space
The body revolves once in a somersault
I am of the great darkness that passes over rooftops,
The reverse of me in a single leap

The inverted, cheap apartment and
Two worlds; beyond written record
What is awakening? Only the cord
A grand rotation in the city skies!

Bye-bye, bye-bye, bye-bye, bye-bye, good-bye to whom?
Bye-bye, bye-bye, bye-bye, bye-bye, good-bye-bye to me!

Missing Link
Translation by Verthandi

Missing link, ooooh
Missing link, oooh
This is the link that was lost

Though I cut ties with this world,
I continue to transform
O heavenly bodies!
Why do I remain
In this world?

Missing link, ooooh
Missing link, oooh
This is the link that was lost

Though I cut ties with this world,
A power is connected still
O illusion!
Why do I remain
In this time, this place?

Though once unborn,
I yet came to be born;
Most resourceful,
My heart

He who is born will die
He who is born will disappear
Yet, we perservere;
It is quite absurd.
Though I cut ties with this world,
A connection remains

Lo, I have vanished, yet now I am singing
Lo, I have vanished, yet now I am laughing
Lo, I have vanished, yet now I am petrified
Lo, I have vanished, yet now I am living
Missing link, missing link...

[Nozomi (Official)]
Missing Link
Official Translation
          Nozomi DVD Release (2011)

Missing link...
Missing link...
The lost link on the chain.

Though I am disconnected...
Even so, I continue to evolve.
Stars up above...
Why do I
exist in this world?

Missing link...
Missing link...
The lost link on the chain.

Though I am disconnected...
Even so, I have the
power to join.
Mirage before me
Why am I here now?

I did not want to be born...
and yet I was born all the same.
The most resourceful thing.
Would be my heart.

Though I am born, I will die...
Though I am born, I will disappear...
It happens over and over again...
It's so absurd...
Though I am disconnected...
Even so, a connection remains...

See, I have vanished yet I still sing.
See, I have vanished yet I still laugh.
See, I have vanished yet I am petrified.
See, I have vanished yet I still live.
I exist. I am here.
I exist. I am here.
I exist!

Since no one at present has translated these liner notes, this is the Japanese text, which I would be very happy to replace with a translation should anyone like to do that! E-mail me at giovanna[at]ohtori.nu! I used an OCR reader for this, then compared it against the original, but if something makes zero sense, check the scans of the text further down for the original. (Until then, Google Translate will give you a sort of usable translation of this one!)

思考光輪(リソグ)が繫がった。
メテオ一ル•ナイト

久々の新作『愚者たちの機械学』の合唱曲を作曲っている時に何気なく眩 いた「ゥテナの音楽って、俺の内側では未だに作曲られ続けているのかも しれない」とぃぅ言葉がこの作品を作るきっかけになった…『地球刑務所 パノブティコン』『見えない印象派たちの演劇』といった『愚者たちの機 械学』の劇中歌を作曲っている時だった。一つの思考光がわたしの右蟀谷 から夜空の一点向けて放たれた。ど、すぐに左蟀谷に帰ってきて大きいリ ング光として繋がった。その思考光輪(リンゲ)を迪ってゃってきたのは『バ ロックロック』や『My real me is scattered』『テアトロメダ•テアトロ サゥルス』『人間系外想像矮星』などの絵空言葉音楽たちだった。新作劇 の台本が「時間がない/」どわたしを引き留める。「大丈夫、間に合わせる」。 わたしは台本を黙らせ、夜空の一点どわたしの両蟀谷に繫がった巨大な精 円の思考光輪(リンゲ)を強く意識し、身を任せるょぅに曲作曲りに没頭し た。いつも通りにテレビをつけての曲作曲りのはすだったがあの夜は違っ た。いつも聞いてるボリュームレべル24のテレビの音が聞こえなくなり、 誰かの話しかける声が聞こえてきたのだ。「死んだ人は星になるって云い 伝承えられてるょね、そんな死者を呼び起こすのに演劇はあるとも聞いた ことがあるが…」と。ど、すぐにまた誰かの声が「そんな劇場宇宙に復活 誕生しよぅとする矮星音楽,というものがあるとすれば…」とわたしを惑わ すように話しかけてくる。わたしはそんな声を無視し、空想変想狂想寓想 を《仮設の劇場》のあちこちに散りばめ、演劇シタール型(リュート内臓)ギ ターを奏でながら、幾種類かのオンガクボゥ(音楽虹)を築き上げていた。が、 また「おまえの《ある少女姪と大人びる姉少女姪の果てなき位置》に適っ たものを復活光と冥府闇の座標軸に点在させ、絵画的手法で迷うことなく 作詞作曲した形跡あり」と他人事のように分析する(おそらくわたしの中 の誰かだろう)誰かが話しかけたかと思えば、「ありとあらゆる書物を所 蔵するバベルの図書館を真似たおまえの書物なき図書館には絶対あるはす のない古文書や古地図、古機巧や古天文図などを買い漁り、読めないと思 えば地球誕生の海を古酒に変え、宇宙歴史に開闢したすべての星雲星座ら 星々々を満天の裸電球に置き換えたりしながら、おまえは解体新書ならぬ 解体オラ書と祈りながらの曲作曲り…どう? 出来に自信は?」またま た他人事のように尋ねる(おそらくわたしの中の誰かだろう)誰かが話し かける。「いつまで続くのかな?」と手を休める,と、一気にテレビの音が蘇っ た。「今年は三大流星群の《ペルセゥス座流星群》が好条件で見れましたが、 来年はこれまた三大流星群の一つ《しぶんぎ座流星群》が見られそうです よ…」遠い昔にはあったらしい眼、すなわちわたしの三番目の眼が、わが 部屋に拡がる天体を見上げた。。
