REVIEW

March 30, 2005

This CD and it's part 2 CD, COCC-72109 are limited releases (limited to 5,000 copies). This CD is basically a sampler of some tracks from eight (8) movies. These 2 CD's are CD reissues of older LP's. In general, most of the ANIMEX CDs are budget reissues of old Columbia LPs. Also the price is right for these two discs, $11.26 each plus shipping from CD Japan. These are nice sounding discs but nothing new for those of us that have a lot of this music. However if you are just getting into buying this stuff and don't own much, then these two CD's are worthwhile while they last and you can't beat the price.
