Funny thing, when comparing this score to the other two in the series, I was actually let down. Not because this a bad score, far from it, it still rises far and above much of the film music down today with their lackluster monothematic motifs. Toshiyuki Watanabe delivers a wonderful score, but it lacks the dynamic nature that so enamored me to the previous film score, either due to budget constraints or recording techniques. The sound is small, with none of that grandiose power that, thankfully, he recaptured in MOTHRA 3. And, there are no new songs!That said, the CD features some fine themes, particularly Gohgo’s playful motif and the lovely Princess Yuna’s theme. Dagahara’s theme plods along no better of worse than Death Ghidorah’s, but hey, he’s just a monster and not the real villains of this story. As with the previous “Complete” collection, this set contains the full score, alternate takes, and the Karaoke version of “Song of Mothra.” There are also sound effects on the end of CD 2 and a Mac/Windows CD-ROM section featuring screen captures of the monsters, suitable for desktop pictures.
