REVIEW

The second volume of the Ultraman Cosmos Soundtrack Series is mainly comprised of cues from the first Cosmos movie: The First Contact. The music is done by the series composer, veteran Toru Fuyuki.

This volume relies heavily on themes introduced in volume one. The first track of this album is basically a variation of the first track from volume one ('Prelude'). This particular theme is used several times throughout the album along with Musashi's theme ('Musashi Sky' from volume one) and the Team EYES theme. One of the only new themes, introduced in track 13, is a song sung by children.

This album reminds me a lot of the previous volume. If you're looking for a little more variety, I'd recommend skipping ahead and listening to volume three which barely uses any of these themes. The next Cosmos movie, The Blue Planet, was given to Tatsumi Yano to compose.
