What They Say
4 out of 5
This CD is something of a rarity, the CD case, is actually part of the insert. It is a three-section fold out case with a character introduction on one page, a rundown of the volumes on the other, and the CD itself in the middle. Contained within a pouch of the Volume rundown side is another insert with English lyrics to the vocal tracks. A song list, and a merchandise page. Also included is a small, colorful advertisement for comics.
For some reason, the songs on this CD put me in mind of a Broadway musical. The upbeat lyrics set to varying tones of music were enough to put me right into any scene. There is a certain amount of a jazzy tone to many of the tunes that set the feet to tapping. The slower instrumental tracks even keep you interested long enough to want more. I was highly impressed with the sounds coming from my speakers. I did have one issue, and I'm still not sure if it is good or bad, two of the songs included on the CD are English versions of the First track and the last track. Surprisingly I found the English tracks to be slightly of higher quality, as the voice of the singer matched more the tempo and feel of the songs, but don't let the Japanese singer slip by you, she's got energy that will keep you going for hours after the song ends.
I'd have to say that this collection is more fun than I'm allowed to have in one sitting.
Fangboy says...this one's makes it into the Favorite music pile, and plays often.
