Just over ten years after Ultraman Tiga first appeared on television in Japan, a new collection of music from the series has been released. The first two discs are from the actual television show, while the third is the soundtrack to the movie, "Ultraman Tiga - The Final Odyssey."
Most of the music from the first disc was previously available on the Ultraman Tiga Music Collection (COCX-13975) with a few new tracks added. This disc contains the music more commonly used during the series, and most of the music I remember from watching it.
I don't know if the music from the second disc has been previously released or not, but it's a good bet that it has. It features a lot of odds-n-ends, most of which I don't remember hearing in the series.
The final disc is basically a re-release of the movie's original soundtrack (COCX-30857) with a new song added at the beginning and end of the CD.
If you own the original version of these CDs, then you won't need to buy this set. It'd be hardly worth buying just to get a handful of new tracks. But if you're having trouble finding the original discs, then this is a nice substitution.
