Volume 3 starts off with the same vocal track as Volume 1 & 2. This is the CD with the longest running time of the three volumes although none of them short change you in the running time department. After the opening vocal we go into music that has a '70's U.S. TV pop flavor to it. Something that might be adapted to elevator music. Track 3 starts off with a passage that reminds me of some of the music in those 1950's & 60's biblical epic motion pictures. Track 4 has a kind of circus like feel to it or like something heard in a scary B movie. We then get some suspenseful music and several tracks that have the same type sound and feel as those on the first two volumes.
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to all three volumes of Ultraman Gaia. Toshihiko Sahashi's music is very listenable and enjoyable. I didn't care much though that the first track on all three volumes was the same. I think if they wanted to do something like that it would have been nice if each one was a slightly different version or alternate take. Any one of these are great. Listening to all three you find a bit too much repetition for my tastes but all were really good to listen to.
