REVIEW

November 24, 2001

The CD only has two tracks but they are done as long suites. Track 1 runs 27:57 and Track 2 runs 14:51. The music is a mixture of rousing music and slow Koto and/or violin music that evokes an emotion of sadness. It's a very pleasant listening experience and far removed from Godzilla music. This disc would be good music to put on when you just want to kick back and relax or even to have playing as background music.
