Review by John M Emmons
Ultraman Ace is the fifth volume in the "Ultra Sound Dendo Series," made in conjunction with the 40th anniversary of Ultraman.
I own the previously released soundtrack by VAP, so I will be focusing on the differences between the releases. The sound quality of the newer release is sharper, but there's not probably a huge difference overall. VAP's Short Piece Collection is about half a minute longer and the last three bonus tracks (20-22) are not included with the newer release. Columbia's version does have a couple new tracks (12, 16, 25) including a stereo version of the main title song.
Overall, the differences aren't huge. About 95% of the music is on both albums. If you already own the VAP version, I can't recommend buying this just for a few more tracks and slightly better sound, but the new release is a good substitute for those who can't find the older, probably out of print, album.
