REVIEW

May 17, 2000

We have some really nice music on this CD with a very large orchestra sound to it. I enjoyed the music on this CD and found it to be very listenable. We get action music and some mellow music here that definitely sounds as if it belongs in a children's movie. No hard, sharp edged tunes here but rather rounded, more mellow paced tunes. Quite a few of the tracks will have you picturing flying or floating over the landscape. The hopping, furbee looking creature known as Gohgo has a nice recurring theme throughout the CD. On Track # 7 we get a really majestic updated version of the original Mothra song sung here by the Elias sisters who are not twins. Track # 8 is a standout fast paced march. Track # 9 gives us another fast paced tune with some vocals from the Mothra song thrown in.

If you can find this CD it's well worth picking up. There is some really nice music here even though I preferred the music to the last movie a bit more.
