The Monster Project is:
This CD from 2005 seems to be an independent effort. The copy I received has no CD number or company name. It just says The Monster Project. The CD is mostly made up of Akira Ifukube pieces from various Godzilla movies from 1954 to 1975 with the majority sounding like they come from the first 1954 movie. Track 1 is a medley of music from the films: "Friday The 13th", "Halloween" and "A Nightmare On Elm Street". Track 17 is from "Swan Lake (Act II, Scene X)" and was also used as the opening music for Bela Lugosi's "Dracula" and "The Mummy". The rest of the tracks are made up of Akira Ifukube Godzilla music.
I found this CD to be quite enjoyable. It certainly won't make you forget Ifukube's full orchestra soundtracks but is a good effort none the less. It certainly deserves a place in your pile of Godzilla related CD's, especially for those completests (like me) who need every Godzilla related CD they can find.
