This Stereo Original Soundtrack to Godzilla 1984 surprised me. It is definitely not one of my favorites and I'd be hard pressed to recommend it to the casual Godzilla fan. All 29 tracks on this CD are very mellow with none of the action oriented, rousing music we find in Ifukube's scores. If you have a choice between this CD and the expanded one on Futureland (TYCY-5360), go with the Futureland release. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing bad about this music, it's just way too mellow and laid back for my tastes. This CD would be an excellent choice if you want to just sit back and relax in a quiet room (with or without headphones)and drift off to dreamland.
