S.A.C. Solid State Society O.S.T.

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex O.S.T.4- is the fourth original soundtrack of the Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex anime series, composed by Yoko Kanno. It features music composed for both seasons of the series and the film Ghost in the Shell: S.A.C. Solid State Society, and is produced by Kanno, Victor Entertainment and Bandai.

As yet, the album has only been made available as part of the Stand Alone Complex CD-BOX, which includes the first three SAC soundtracks, Kanno's be Human album, the Solid State Society soundtrack, and a Tachikoma-style USB memory stick featuring previously unreleased music from Tachikomatic Days, as well as voice clips, images and video.

Unlike the previous soundtrack releases, O.S.T.4- is presented as a single track, without breaks. The CD-BOX liner notes make no mention of separate track titles or the artists' involvement with each section of the album; however, the packaging does state that the soundtrack consists of "16 pieces". Despite the continuous nature of the release, the overlaps and fades between the 16 sub-tracks are minimal.
