REVIEW

January 16, 2007

This CD was rereleased as "Symphonic Space Battleship Yamato: Live" on June 21, 1995 as catalog number COCC-12672. The symphonic arrangements of these four suites are pleasant and easy to listen to. It would make for some nice music to have playing in the background as you relax or do some chores around the house. However at the risk of offending Yamato fans everywhere, I didn't find this CD to be really outstanding in any way. I did enjoy it, just didn't find it to be anything special. I welcome dissenting opinions.
