REVIEW

January 12, 2007

This is the second in the series of recent Space Cruiser Yamato "Eternal Edition" soundtrack CDs. Some of these are sold as two-disc sets (like this one), and others are single discs. Even when sold as two-disc sets, each disc is numbered separately. This set contains what are known as Eternal Edition Files #2 and #3. These two discs feature every single track from the movie in order of appearance.

File #2 (COCX-31154) starts off with a very gothic sounding instrumental and then goes into the "Main Title" in track 2 with a hauntingly lovely female voice. There are no lyrics, just her backing voice. Very nice. We then move into instrumentals of varying types and tempos. Some are action pieces while some sound as if they could have come out of a James Bond or other spy movie. Others are slow evoking sadness. A very good sounding soundtrack with a few repeating themes. Overall a very enjoyable disc.

File #3 (COCX-31155) starts with what appears to be the same gothic sounding music as disc 1 but with a different title and much shorter. The first part of this disc before the Live concert section is very similar to disc 1 but the themes seem to repeat more often on this disc, especially the music of the 1st track. The live concert portion is very nice and during track 19 the conductor speaks to the audience but since it's in Japanese I have no idea what he said.
