I really enjoyed this CD. It is very similar to the second volume called “The Legend Of Gamera II” but I didn't care much for the 2nd volume (see the review). While this CD also had sound effects tracks and some movie dialogue it didn't seem to have as much as in vol. 2 and there seemed to be more music here. The music on this disc is darker and more action oriented and not that kiddie type music found in vol. 2.
Track 7 is very interesting in that it is made up of several different takes on the same sound effects. Between each take is a Japanese voice that sounds like it's coming from the control room. Since I don't speak Japanese I couldn't tell if the voice was giving directions to how he wanted the effect done or just saying “Take one”, “Take two”, etc.
I enjoyed listening to this CD and unless you like kiddie music would recommendd this one over the second volume.
