Guilty Gear XX in L.A Vocal Edition is the fourth vocal album in the series, and the first to be based on Guilty Gear XX. The N.Y Vocal Edition completes the rest of the character themes from the game's default roster.

As the album name implies, L.A. Vocal Edition is the first of a few attempts of trying to go for a new frontier of bringing American rock and roll vocalists into the Japanese anime and video game image music album world, brought about by the global Japanese video game and anime entertainment boom in the turn of the millenium of the 2000s, and in "full circle" in regards to Guilty Gear's rock and roll and metal music inspirations. The album focuses on nailing the sound of the South California Pacific coast rock and roll scene with the popular music of the Guilty Gear series, the West Coast ever made famous from bands like Guns N' Roses, Skid Row, Van Halen, X, Orgy, and The Offspring, and home to rock and roll culture forefronts like Whiskey A Go Go and Studio City, Hollywood, in the self proclaimed City of The Future and Entertainment Capitol of the World. L.A. Vocal Edition goes for genres of 1980s borne west coast metal, thrash, industrial, hard alt rock, gothic metal, and even cross cultural fusions inspired by J-rock.
