REVIEW

April 04, 2007

This CD is part of the ANIMEX 1200 series and very affordable. This is #160 of the ANIMEX 1200 releases.

This is another great sounding score from Akira Ifukube. While this is somewhat different from his other monster movie scores it similar enough that any fan will enjoy it and you may recognize pieces that sound very similar to ones that have appeared in some Godzilla films. The movie is also available these days on DVD and worth checking out.
