REVIEW

Here we have another "Best Of" Mothra songs. While I personally like this CD, I was a little disappointed with it considering I waited almost 3 months to get it. My main disappointment with this CD is that it only has 12 tracks and a total playing time of just a little over half an hour. Also, except for one track, everything here is on other Mothra CD's. This could have been a much better CD.

The music on the disc sounds good. It is listed as Stereo/Mono. Tracks 1-3 are from the original 1961 "Mothra" while tracks 4-6 are from the 1964 "Godzilla vs. The Thing". These are probably the mono tracks. Tracks 7-12 have no dates but they sound like they are from the 1990's films featuring Mothra.

If you are a fan of the singing and harmonizing of the twins in the movies (as I am) then you will probably enjoy this CD since most of the tracks feature their singing. If you don't like their singing then stay away from this CD. Track #8 is the only song on this CD that I don't remember hearing before. It is the Mothra song done with a heavy metal style and sung by the girls. It actually sounded pretty decent and was a very fast, upbeat number unlike the "Mothra" done by the Canadian heavy metal band Anvil. Tracks 9 & 10 are instrumental tracks.

All in all this is a good, but short, CD.
