REVIEW

January 4, 2002

This 3 CD set by Makoto Inoue is done with synthesizers and sticks very close to the originals by Akira Ifukube. At times you can't even tell it's synthesizer music. This set seems to be comprised of two earlier discs on this site: Chronology 1, K32X 7032 and Chronology 2, K32X 7033 with some additional tracks added plus a new third disc. While you won't mistake these for the originals, they are pretty close and sound pretty good. This set is worth picking up if you can find it, especially if you haven't been able to track down originals.
