The Review!
3 out of 5
Music found in the Borgman series.

This CD comes with a three-page insert. The first two pages have advertisements for upcoming ADV soundtracks. The third page lists credits for the CD.

Composers Takashi Tsushimi, known for his work in Ninja Cadets and Hiromoto Tobisawa, who worked on Captain Tsubasa have lent themselves to making the instrumentals that make up this CD. The instrumentals much like the vocals and instrumentals of the first CD have a distinct 80s feel to them (understandable for a show that came out in 1989), and can only be classified as rock. All I could think of as some of the instrumentals played out was sitting at a "Winger" concert, waiting for the singer to come on stage. Although this one had a few ballads that had more of a "Kenny G" feel to them, it was much more of a ballad CD than the first one.

The vocals have that same 80s feel to them. This one, however, had a slower more soft rock feel to it that the first CD. With songs being sung by many famous Japanese voice actors including Kouichi Yamadera also known as Spike from Cowboy Bebop, Hiroshi Koide who played many Borgman characters, Yoshino Takamori as Anice in Borgman, and Yasunori Matsumoto you may recall as Boz from Hellsing or Nakano from Gravitation. Much like the first soundtrack for this series, the vocals are a bit lacking in the power of some of those old 80s tunes that still grace the radio stations today and can be slightly dated. These too aren't what I would call memorable in any way other than as set ups for scenes or backgrounds, but they do keep you interested long enough to get to the instrumentals that really make this CD good.

I'd have to say more 80s, and more, and more.
