The only thing wrong with this version is that it does not include the opening and closing speeches as on the original album. Like the General himself, the emotional dynamics of the music match the temperment of the romantic warrior that he was. In a day when current generals have no honor and are only concerned with rank, it is great to listen to the music and reflect on one who knew what his purpose was.

While this is technically the soundtrack from the movie, the alternative soundtrack (which includes 5 bonus tracks from Tora! Tora! Tora!) is far superior in quality in my opinion.
