REVIEW

If you like the music from Mothra movies, especially the beautiful melodies of the little twins, then this is a must have CD for you. All the original music you remember from all the Mothra movies is here. My only complaint and what I feel detracts some from this disk are a few tracks around 22 that sound like 70's disco music. These few tunes may have been in the movies in some night club scenes or something but I don't really remember them and I don't care for them. The disc does redeem itself again on the last two tracks with some wonderful harmonizing from the latest pair of singing women to appear in the newest "Godzilla vs. Mothra" movie.
