This is a fully packed CD with a running time of over 72 minutes. I found the music on this CD to be not bad but not great either. It was sort of a middle-of-the-road listening experience. The music was a good mix of slower tunes with faster action oriented pieces. Some pieces employed a synthesizer. The score reminded me of something that could have been written for an anime movie or a TV movie.
All in all this was a pleasant, relaxing listening experience but unless you are a fan of the film or can find it cheaply, it's not worth spendinga lot of money on.
