Volume 7 of this series is supposedly the Adventure songs. The 13 tracks on this CD are mostly suites made up of shorter pieces of music lasting about one minute each. Some of the tracks on this CD I enjoyed very much and others I didn't care for. The styles and music on this CD is a real mixed bag.
Track #1 starts off like a 70's spy movie, then turns into what sounds like a Hawaiian Luau with suspense music laid over it. It then changes once again back to a 70's sounding tune with a Flamenco influence. It then proceeds into a western sounding tune. This is really a nice sounding track but is a real mix of different styles. Track #2 is made up of a female vocal that sounds like something from an old time night club. Track #3 sounds like the background piano music you might hear in an expensive restaurant. We get some suspense/adventure sounding music on Track #4. Track #5 was probably my least favorite. It comes off sounding like a Hawaiian Western if you can picture such and animal and then goes into the sounds of a screeching female opera type vocal backed by a chorus. The next track, #6, is a well done suspense oriented track that I enjoyed. Track #7 mixes suspense with slower paced romantic music. Traditional Japanese music is heard in much of Track #8. We then get a fast paced, rousing track that starts off with Castanets and morphs into a tune featuring a Xylophone and chorus. Track #10 starts off with whistling and an epic, war march. This then changes to a male chorus doing a chanting type tune which then evolves into a fast paced jazz number. Tracks #11, 12 & 13 are all well done uptempo suspense / adventure type pieces.
