Review by John M Emmons
According to CD Japan, the "Ultra Sound Dendo Series" is a series of re-released soundtracks to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Ultraman, combining previously released tracks with rare tracks. There have been nine volumes released.
The music featured on this album is more mysterious and eerie than the lighthearted music associated with Miyauchi's Ultraman soundtrack, though it does have a couple songs sung by children. My favorite track is the main theme, which consists of a simple guitar riff with backing brass. This theme is occasionally hinted at in a number of variations throughout the album.
Unfortunately, this is my first Ultra Q album, so I cannot compare this release with previous ones, but with over an hour of music, there's plenty for new and old fans to listen to.
