REVIEW

January 03, 2007

As a testament to his popularity, Ultraseven returned to television with a new series of live action specials in 1999. Returning with him would be composer Tohru Fuyuki who worked on the original Ultraseven series.

I was surprised to find that many of the songs, especially towards the middle of the album, sound very much like classical music. But don't worry. The album also features new recordings of all the famous themes from the original series.

In fact, if there's one thing wrong with this album, it's that it seems that Fuyuki favored using the original themes instead of creating new themes or even new variations. Meaning that if you own the soundtrack from the original series, you will already be familiar with much of the music here. Still, it's an enjoyable listen, and the booklet is full of pictures from the show and, of course, Japanese text.
