REVIEW

October 04, 2007

GARO, (literally translated as "Fanged Wolf" in English) was a Japanese tokusatsu television series. It was broadcast from October 7. 2005 to March 31, 2006 on TV Tokyo , lasting 25 episodes. I have personally never seen this show.

The CD is certainly packed to the max clocking in at 77 minutes with the last 8 tracks comprised of various sound effects. The music on this CD is often interesting and sometimes a little strange while also having many beautiful tunes and themes. Lots of action oriented pieces and some march type music. Many tracks are very short, more like cues. Some tracks also feature some nice drumming. All in all it was a pleasant enough listen and something I think would stand up pretty well as stand alone listening without knowing the show or how the music was used with the visuals.
