REVIEW

January 2, 2004

This 2 CD set came out the day after Christmas and is a compilation of music from the five films that MechaGodzilla has appeared in. The packaging is nice. We get a cardboard sleeve just slightly larger than a regular jewel case but thinner than most 2 CD cases. Inside are 2 slimline cases with a CD in each case. Disc 1 is labeled Hangar 1 and disc 2 is labeled Hangar 2. Also included is a 15 page booklet consisting entirely of Japanese test, no pictures.

There is really nothing new here if you have the other CD's containing the various MechaGodzilla soundtracks. However the music here is well done and makes a nice compilation. Both CD's are filled with over 70 minutes each of music. If you don't have the MechaGodzilla CD's then this makes a great compilation and if you do have them, it's still a nice set to have.
