From what I could gather this is a soundtrack to a film about at least one red fox. I picked it up because it had Masaru Satoh listed as the composer and was relatively inexpensive. Turns out Mr. Satoh only composed two of the tracks. Those are instrumental tracks on this disc. Most others are vocal tracks. Nothing here was really outstanding for me but it was pleasant to listen to and the vocal tracks were nice enough. Nothing flashy or action oriented. Just kind of mid tempo stuff.
