The Review!
1 out of 5
Music found in the Patlabor 3 Movie.

This CD was set up with a ten-page insert. The first page is the song title list with an interesting illustration of a DNA helix. The Next page is a cover page with a picture of a city lit up at night, with the title of the CD across it. This page, as well as the next seven, is made from paper that is reminiscent of black construction paper. And all the images/wording is a grayish-silver on these pages. The next page is the song tittle list, followed by a page with an introduction paragraph from Kenji Kawai. The next page is a Picture of the stadium and city, again lit up at night. The next page has a small paragraph with the background story to what takes place in the movie. The next two pages are credits for the movie as well as the CD. The next page is a page with cautions for handling the CD on it. The final page is again the full-color glossy type page. It has the same small paragraph on the back-story and two color pictures on it as well.

This one is a very percussion oriented CD. The music itself is a more traditional European classical style. It takes many influences from the compositions of Beethoven and Mozart, and even contains one of Beethoven’s compositions. Unfortunately, the music does not have the same emotional power as it’s influences, and is very lacking in any real thought provoking pieces. Even the piece by Beethoven himself is not one of his better works, and leaves much to be desired in the listener. I don’t want to say that it was a boring CD, but frankly, I was turned off by the music. It was slow, unmoving, and dragged out longer than it really should have. If you love classical music, as I do, it is a heart-breaking attempt at the genre, and listeners should beware of the unnerving blandness of the whole CD.

I'd have to say Yawn City, not even worth the listen.
