After two scores in a row by Masaru Satoh, Akira Ifukube is back for this one. The "Title Credits" will sound familiar as it's a reworking of past themes. Akira Ifukube does a nice job on this CD mixing new music with reworking of some past music. With the reworking here of previous music, and not over using it, plus mixing in some new stuff, the music here still sounds fresh. Some of these themes here will be so over used in later scores as to get borderline annoying. There are quite a few under one minute cues on this CD but they aren't over done and some segue almost seemlessly into the next track.
Overall a nice listening experience and one to buy if you get the chance. A good score for a decent film.
