Music by Kenji Kawai of "Innocence" fame. Comes with a DVD containing recording session footage, TV spot and more. The DVD is region-2 encoded (Japan, Europe, and Middle East), and carries no subtitles.
After listening to this CD all the way through once, I can say I really enjoyed it. Unlike other recent Ultraman CD's, there are not a lot of vocal tracks on this one. In fact the only vocal track is the last one which is probably the theme song. The music itself has a variety of tempos, mostly in the mid to fast range. While this soundtrack is to a live action television show on Saturday nights in Japan, the music has an anime feel to it. However I can see this music fitting into a TV show as well.
The bonus DVD doesn't contain a lot of material and only runs about 7 minutes total. It does have some footage of the vocal singers recording in the studio as well as some Japanese speaking by others involved. It also contains a trailer. Nice for a bonus disc but would have been better with some actual movie footage or outtakes.
