Score by Akira Ifukube. This is definitely a fully packed 2 CD set with both CD's clocking in at over 70 minutes of music each. This set contains a better mix of action themes along with the sadder, slower themes than the single disc set. Again, this set contains a lot of music we've heard before in other Ifukube scored films but if you don't own many other CD's from the series then this set is a great addition to your collection if you can find it.
Disc #2's track #47 is a very annoying tune. It sounds like kids on speed or some psychedelic drug. The last track, #48, is just OK but unnecessary and wouldn't have been missed.
