REVIEW

October 12, 2007

Ultra Q: Dark Fantasy is a 2004 TV production in the Ultra Series that was broadcast in Japan in 2004. It is a sequel to Ultra Q, the first of the Ultra Series. I have never seen it. The music on the CD is varied with some tracks that will sound very familiar to fans of the original 1965 "Ultra Q" series. While nothing on the CD particularly jumped out at me, except maybe the vocal track 53, it was a pleasant enough CD to listen to and makes for a good stand alone listening experience.
