REVIEW

May 19, 2001

This CD released in 1991 brings us the essential music from three different movies: "Godzilla vs The Thing", "Dagora" and "Battle In Outer Space". Great music here. I'm one of those people that really enjoys singing by The Peanuts in the Mothra movies so I really enjoyed Tracks 3 & 4. This music shows up in later Futureland CD releases in expanded form with each movie getting a full disc of it's own. You get just enough music on these CD's to wet your appetite without countless repetition of tracks.

Each of the 10 volumes in this CD series gives slighly more or less than an hour of music. 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.
