Comments
The intro disc to the set features the paring of Kunio Miyauchi's All Monsters Attack score with that of Kenjiro Hirose's Konto 55: Grand Outer Space Adventure. Either by design or coincidence, the two scores work fairly well side-by-side as both composers utilize a "big band" type of feel to their work. Of the two, Miyauchi's effort tends to be the weaker entry, though, as it gets repetitive by the time its portion of the disc is over. Compared to the Toshiba release of this score, its presentation here is at least chronologically ordered, although it loses out on a Karaoke version of the record single and of the second version of the Monster March. As for Hirose's effort, it's actually a rather fun score that's very reminiscent of his work on the Showa Gamera series. The main title in particular is a pretty interesting track, sounding like something one would expect to find as a lead in theme on a Disney televised cartoon. The next theme, the "Moonlit Duel", is another enjoyable and energetic piece of music. Hirose also gets to show off some range here as well, including soothing and very pleasant cues like the one for "Princess Yokihi". There are also a few interesting stock themes tossed in too, such as the very retro "Go-go UFO" cue that sounds like it comes from a dated record source and is sure to be a guilty pleasure of quite a few. The "Battle Preparation" theme is another, as it's derived from the "Warship March" that can be found in a number of other Toho films such as Battle of the Japan Sea (1969). Of course it's not an outstanding soundtrack all the same, as a few themes do miss their mark; however, since most of the cues are around a minute long or less even the lackluster tracks seem to go by quickly. Either way, the score definitely isn't for everyone though, and is sure to generate a strong divide in admirers and disputants.
