REVIEW

December 29, 2006

This CD is mostly comprised of male vocal tracks with a few female vocal tracks. Overall it is very pleasant sounding and all the songs are nice to listen to but nothing really stood out for me. There are no fast paced action tracks. All of the songs are in a mid tempo ballad style. Of course I'm not really much into anime and have never seen any of the Yamato series of shows so this CD will probably be much more meaningful and sought after by Yamato fans.
