At over 74 minutes, this soundtrack by Go Misawa of the Zone Fighter television show is certainly a full release by any standard. This CD covers a great deal of the music utilized the TV show (some missing themes include the guitar heavy cue heard later in the series in episodes 18, 19 and 25), and manages to present a pleasant listening experience without excessive repetition as nearly every cue is unique. Some of these tracks are very long though, going on for five or six minutes as they tend to merge together several themes that could easily have stood on their own. The "Bridge Collection", for example, is a rather large combination of numerous short cues, which, as the track title suggests, where used to bridge the different music together; although, in this case, it's more appropriate to lump them together as opposed to the alternative of dozens of ten second cues.

Unfortunately, the music doesn't work quite as well as a stand alone experience outside of the show as one would hope, as it does appear to lose something when removed from the more "campy" backdrop of the series. Still, there are a number of nice themes here, including the "Monster Missile Invasion" and "Meteor Victory". It's also pretty hard not to smile at the "Justice from the King of the Monsters, Godzilla" track as one can just picture Godzilla charging full speed to save Zone Fighter from certain doom when listening to it.
