I love Cyberbird! One thing I love about Yoko Kanno is that every song she is involved in making comes out 100% brilliant. And the music always fits the animation perfectly, my personal favorites spread among the shows he produced under. Rain, The Real Man, Blue, and Rush from Cowboy Bebop her work with The Seatbelts was magnificent all around! I Do, I can't be cool, Inner Universe, Velveteen, Run Rabbit Junk... ugh too many to count xD I love all the sound tracks that we're released for GITS. Personally I love how they we're able to mix elemenets of more organic instruments with various electronic almost industrial sounding intsruments, giving that cyber punk orcestra feeling. Another good anime she did music for was Wolf's Rain, Heaven's not enough is still my favorite song from that... absoultely beautiful production work. In my opinion all these animes wouldn't have been so successful without Yoko Kanno's brillant musical gift behind the fantastic storys and artwork. That just my opinion! ^_^
