I have not seen the movie and have listened to the CD twice now so these are my first impressions. From
what information I can find, this movie goes somewhat backward toward the Gamera movies made for children and not
the ones of the 1990's. I'm told that while this movie is geared toward children it will still appeal to adults as well. Knowing this and listening to the CD you can understand the toned down soundtrack with soft music on this CD. No garish, loud action pieces but the music is quite pleasant and worth a listen.
The bonus tracks #35 to 50 are made up of various short roars lasting from 7 to 18 seconds. Track 51 seems to be a just
under two minute snippet of dialogue from the film featuring two young boys and possible Gamera landing and flying. At the
end of the track you can hear them calling for Gamera. Track #52 starts with the Gamera roar and then the kiddie "Gamera March" song we all know from the old Gamera films. Track 53 seems to be just a longer version of track 51. Track 54 is the "Eternal Love" (Remix Version) performed by Mink. It starts off with a harsh techno beat but turns into sweet sounding female vocal.
Overall I enjoyed the CD and am looking forward to the time I can see the film.
