REVIEW

May 19, 2001

This CD released in 1991 brings us the essential music from three different movies: "Godzilla", "Revenge Of Godzilla" and "Atragon". All this music shows up in later Futureland CD releases in expanded form with each movie getting a full disc of it's own. What's nice about the CD's in this 10 CD series is that you get just enough to be satisfying and wet your appetite without countless repetition of tracks.

This whole 10 volume series of CD's is very good and most of the reviews for these discs will be very similar. Since they were released back in 1991 there is a very good chance they are now out of print and hard to find. You may still occasionally run into them on eBay or other auction sites and may even run across a copy elsewhere. They are well worth picking up if you don't already have other CD's with this music on them or are a completist as many of us are.
