Most of track 1 is pretty good and almost sounds like it could have come from an alien type science fiction film. Track 2 sounds somewhat like it could come from a children's lullaby or dream sequence. Track 3 definitely has a 1970's feel to it and is mostly mid tempo. A very nice track. Track 4 from "Gishiki" (aka "The Ceremony") sounds like it's name. Very slow and at times "horrific" sounding like it could be associated with some type ceremony. Track 5 starts out like something you'd associate with a slow gondola ride down a French or Italian canal or street. A pleasant track to listen to overall. Track 6 is just a pleasant track to listen to with a lot of violins and string bass.
Overall I probably enjoyed this disc in this series the best as a stand alone listening experience. The music had good variety, wasn't repetitious and stood well on it's own away from the films.
