REVIEW

May 24, 2001

This CD released in 1991 brings us music from five different movies: "GODZILLA VS. THE SEA MONSTER", "SON OF GODZILLA ", "HALF-HUMAN", "KING KONG ESCAPES" and "YOG - MONSTER FROM SPACE". A good sampling of the different styles employed by Masaru Satoh and Akira Ifukube. This music shows up later on Futureland and SLC releases in expanded form with each movie getting a full disc of it's own. This CD is a good sampler for those expanded releases.

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.
