This is number 22 in a series of Daiei Films movie scores, the fourth film in the original Gamera series and, unfortunately, the dullest of scores. Hirose based much of it on a plodding, brass, percussion and electronic theme for the Virian alien invaders. The other original part of the score is more suited to 1940s circa cartoon, bourbon street jazz meets Tom and Jerry. Of course the Gamera theme song appears throughout in both instrumental and vocal versions. The CD also contains an SFX track of monster sounds.
