This CD is a nice mix of different tempos and the music here has very little repetition and not much in the way of recycled music. Track # 7 is a piano "calypso" style tune that sounds more like something Masaru Satoh would do rather than Akira Ifukube. Tracks # 10 and # 34 are jungle native tunes with # 10 having the vocal chanting while # 34 is instrumental and listed as the karaoke version. This sounds very similar to another jungle chant heard in another Toho film ("Mothra" or "King Kong vs. Godzilla"). The chanting on track # 10 is a little faster paced and higher pitched, like it's sung by children, than the way it sounds in the other film. A lot of the cues on this disc are very short and under one minute. Tracks # 29 through # 34 are alternate takes while tracks # 35, 36 & 37 are sound effects. The last track, # 38, is the audio to the film trailer.

Overall this was a very enjoyable disc and holds up pretty well as a stand-alone listening experience.
