"Ultraman Leo" saw the return of composer Tohru Fuyuki and songwriter Makoto Kawaguchi. While more serious in tone than its predecessor, the music does not reach the high standards left by the previous "Ultra Seven" or "Return of Ultraman".
In this edition, there are a number of changes compared to the previously released VAP album. The "Wunderbar MAC" song was replaced by two versions of "March of MAC." Most of the short pieces and guitar pieces were left out. There were a few cues that I don't remember hearing on the VAP release, but the majority of the instrumental music was the same. The karaoke version of "Ballad of the Starry Sky" was replaced by the actual song. The last song is the full version of the "Ultraman Leo" song.
With approximately 8 more minutes that they could have filled with missing music, I would be hard pressed to call this the definitive release of music from "Ultraman Leo."
