REVIEW August 16, 2006

I have never seen any of the Kamen Rider series so know very little about them. This 13 track CD has 12 instrumental tracks and a lone vocal track (# 13). The music is easy to listen to with a definite action flavor. Some of the tracks had a slight sci-fi film flavor to them and one track reminded me a bit of stock music from the 1950's Superman TV show.

KAMEN RIDER J [for Jiku, Earth Spirit, and Jumbo, as he's the only rider to date to become a giant]
