REVIEW

October 24, 2000 (Updated August 22, 2001)

This is a great set and contains the music to three of my favorite movies scored by Akira Ifukube. I just recently was able to get a copy of this 2 CD set. It does contain most of the same music as the single CD sets of Godzilla, Rodan & The Mysterians. You can find reviews of those single CD's elsewhere on this site. If you have the other single CD's, then this set is redundant and not necessary unless you are a completist collector. If you don't have the others and run across this set (either release, LD25-5033-4 or TYCY-5195~6) I'd advise you to grab it.
