REVIEW

October 18, 2006

This CD is #114 in the Animex 1200 set of limited releases (limited to 5,000 copies). In general, most of the ANIMEX CDs are budget reissues of older Columbia LPs. This one is reasonable priced at http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/.

The CD starts off with a disco sounding vocal track. After that we get a variety of instrumental tracks, some with really nice sounding horns. Most of the tunes are snappy mid to up tempo tracks. The last track is also a vocal track that's very catchy sounding. This is another CD that would be great to put on in the background and let play. It was thoroughly enjoyable. Of course never having seen any of these shows I have no idea how well the music works with the action but suspect it works well.
