REVIEW

March 12, 2000

This CD is the shortest timewise and that's probably not a bad thing. Track #5 is the familiar Godzilla military march but done with violins and other string instruments. The music on this CD is very familiar sounding and a lot like the others in this series. This disc could best be described as alternate versions.

*1  	The IDMB does not list this film, the Japanese title of which is "Semushi no Kouma".  
	Note that I may have translated this title as "The Hunchbacked Pony" in previous CDs.
*2  	This is a direct transliteration of the Japanese.
*3	Or possibly "Ivan's Whistle".
