REVIEW

March 28, 2005

This is a good sounding CD that is pretty much a good sampler of many of the Toho movies in this genre produced from the first Godzilla in 1954 until the second coming in 1984, 30 years worth of music. All of the movies listed get one track except for "The Last War" and "Godzill vs The Smog Monster" which get two tracks each for some reason. Most of the tracks are main titles, but LAST WAR also adds the "Overture" (which comes before the main title), and SMOG MONSTER is represented by the "Opening" and "Give Back the Sun" (since the film doesn't technically have a main title). The music here is clear and clean and if you don't already have much of this music or are looking to add a good sampler disc to your collection, go ahead and buy it.If you already own much of this music, there really isn't anything on this disc you haven't heard before.
