Here we have a Best of CD. If you don't already have a few then pick this one up if you can. It's a great sounding CD that's a little different than the rest. Track #1 is Godzilla stomping and roaring. Track #3 features a helicopter flying over with shouts of "It's Godzilla!!!". Track #11 has planes flying, guns firing and Godzilla roaring. Track #28 is pretty much a repeat of Track #1. The last track, #29, I think may be from the 1998 U.S. Godzilla. While the music here isn't new, some of the selections used to represent the movies are different pieces than have been used in most of the other "Best Of" CD's.

This CD is a winner and worth a listen if you can find it.
