Review by John M Emmons

This is a compilation of classical music used in Ultraseven, Return of Ultraman, and Ultraman Ace.

I don't listen to a lot of classical music, but I enjoyed listening to this album. It offers a nice selection of music, ranging from Bach to Tchaikovsky. The most recognizable track on this CD is Mendelssohn's "Wedding March."

If you're a fan of classical music and Ultraman, then I'd recommend this album. If you're only interested in the music of Kunio Miyauchi and Toru Fuyuki, then you'll probably want to avoid this album.

Thanks to Google Translation and Wikipedia, I was able to figure out the titles of the classical pieces used in this album.
