This is a really enjoyable CD and most of the music on it will be very familiar. The music is by Akira Ifukube and almost all the tracks on this CD sound like variations of music we have heard in all the best Godzilla films. As you can see from the titles there is lot of the material after track 27 that is taken from other films and includes some dialog and sound effects.
Overall a very enjoyable CD with a really good mixture of familiar tunes.
