Good Album.

Really good soundtrack songs from the Godzilla movies from the very first Godzilla ever made, on through the ones that were produced into the mid 70's. Still I am partial to the songs from the very first movie (Godzilla, King of the Monsters = 1954) which I feel are the best of the lot. Second comes Mothra's theme songs as my favorites. Watching these films over the years, you come to realize how much you do know most of the music from the films whether you realize it or not. The strength of this album is that if you have seen, the movies over and over again, you most likely know what's on here probably not by name ofcourse, but better yet by heart upon hearing most of the music on this cd. So in essence it's like coming home to something familiar. There are some really good selections here, as well as a few good songs that are really sound effects (such as Godzilla's voice, Mothra's voice, King Kong, etc.) An unusual album yes, but it's a must for any real fan of the Godzilla or Toho Monster films. True your friends or family may ask you what the hell it is you're listening to on occassion, but I pretty much think it comes with the territory. What the heck, get the album anyway.

Truly Essential Monster Collection

This has to be the best $9.99 I've spent in the past ten years. From the somber, post-war dirges of the early Godzilla movies through the grand, funky marches of the 1970's you'll be entertained and captivated by the sonic wake of the Great Reptile himself, as imagined by the late master Akira Ifukabe. If you're the least bit curious, click your mouse and be transported to a land of mecha-terror and atomic paranoia in the final moments before the model buildings come down and Godzilla's atomic breath takes your Saturday morning away.


I love Godzilla and the soundtrack makes it better. But Akira Ifukube did'nt do the music for a few movies, but it's still great! Check it out!
