Review by John M Emmons
Ultraman 80 is the ninth and last volume in the "Ultra Sound Dendo Series," made in conjunction with the 40th anniversary of Ultraman.
While both the main Ultraman 80 song and the U.G.M. song (Utility Government Members) sound very dated, there's also an infectious energy to them. Most of the album focuses on instrumental variations of these two themes, ranging from trumpet solos to full orchestra renditions. Tracks four and eleven are strong tracks featuring typically tense music that easily evokes images of monsters rampaging Tokyo.
This is my first Ultraman 80 album, so I cannot compare this release with previous ones. Unlike the other two Dendo Series albums, the majority of the tracks are in stereo. I really enjoyed listening to this album and recommend it to fans of Toru Fuyuki.
