REVIEW August 24, 2006

Overall not a bad listening experience although nothing really grabbed me. I have not seen any of the Kamen Rider shows so can't really comment on how the music works in the shows. Some of the CD's in this series sound better to me than others. This is kind of in the middle of the pack for me. Not bad but nothing really overpowering either.

This CD is part of the Animex 1200 series (#34) of CDs and each disc in the series is limited to 5000 copies.
