Destroy All Monsters
(Full Soundtrack)

Here is the soundtrack to the 1968 Godzilla film "Destroy All Monsters" as scored by the great Akira Ifukube. This out of print soundtrack was something I acquired when I bought the 50th Anniversary Edition of the film on DVD. The DVD came packed with this disc which was a major selling point to me at the time. If you are a fan of the early Godzilla films and Akira's scores you'll definitely enjoy this. It has a good share of familiar cues and new stuff.

As far as the film goes when it gets down to action of the monsters fighting it's quite enjoyable, but there are some slow moments that I wish would not have not dragged on as long in between fights. The final battle against King Ghidorah is pretty fantastic.
