REVIEW

September 27, 2007

Soundtrack album to the movie starring Eriko Sato. Includes the main theme performed by Kumi Koda and the character song of "Black Claw". Based on the first two bouncy, J-Pop music tracks I didn't think I'd care for this CD, they just weren't my cup of tea. However after that I did enjoy most of the instrumental tracks, most notably the infectious track 9 with it's cymbal work and the lovely guitar work of the moderately paced Track 10.Track 11 had some nice horn work evoking memories of 1970's Latin or Bosa Nova music. The styles of the instrumental tracks varied greatly but most were very interesting and pleasant to listen to.

I have never seen this movie and know nothing about it other than it seems to be a live action anime movie. The music does well as a stand alone listening experience.
