Of course there aren't many CDs that focus on the sound effects in Toho films, but of those that do, Victor's release here is far and away the best.
Beyond containing Matango - Various - Sound Effect Of Godzilla 2 - Godzillas Rivals Godzilla series stuff, this CD also dips into a ton of other science fiction films Franke & The Knockouts - Youre My Girl / Tell Me Why Toho, including The Secret of Telegian and Matango The real draw from this disc, for more avid collectors, Joseph Reynaerts - Pas Assez actually be some of the Godzilla series stuff, as roars for Destoroyah, the menagerie of creatures from Godzilla: Matango - Various - Sound Effect Of Godzilla 2 - Godzillas Rivals Wars and others make their sound effect "debut" here.
The Final Wars stuff is a real treat too, especially all of the stuff done for Zilla and Kumonga that one hardly got to hear in the actual film.
Due to the huge library of stuff here, though, Victor had to make some compromises to fit it all on. This includes dramatically decreasing the amount of silence in each track; for example, Biollante's roar is 24 seconds here versus the 35 second one found on the Howl CD SRCLwhich is due solely from removing a lot of the silence in it.
The ending result is a much more rapid kind of delivery, but it's nothing to stress about. The reason for this being done is that this disc actually hits the track limit of 99, meaning that they either had to be bridged or dropped altogether.
Sadly, for whatever reason, it should be mentioned that Manda from the Showa series was left off here. To make it clear, this is the only piece of actual music on the disc, perhaps just so they could put "BGM" in the title. As for how Wada's cue fares, it's not bad, and it's different enough from Akira Ifukube 's original one for the film to be worth listening to.
Overall, this is a great release for those who are into sound effects; however, given the very niche nature of this audience, the disc probably won't have much widespread appeal. Toys Comics Books TV. Music By: Various. Anthony Romero.
