Five of the eleven tracks on this CD are from Godzilla movies. Track #1 is from the U.S. Godzilla movie while the other four are from the Toho Godzilla movies.

The orchestra here sticks pretty close to the original sound of the music for all eleven tracks. While the tunes are well done they certainly won't make you forget or throw away the originals. The CD is pleasant to listen to and has many favorite themes. This CD is well suited for the casual listener or completist but will not satisfy the hard core fan.
