Subject: I have found a CD that I think you would enjoy
Long Vacation: Original Soundtrack (1996 Japanese Television Soundtrack)
Genres: Alternative Rock, Pop, Soundtracks
A very good disc!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This is a very good CD, for me it rates 5 stars, but I listen to a lot of Import CDs, from Japan in particular so I like it better than the average listener probally would. But If you have seen Long Vacation or even if you have not. And like pop especially J-pop I think you will not be dissapointed in this selection of music. I liked this disc very much, actually I have hoped that a soundtrack to this show would be released on CD ever since I first saw the Long Vacation TV drama on the International Channel a few years ago and never knew there was one until just a few days ago. So I highly suggest you get it if you also like J-Pop or any of vocals from some of the Japanese Anime series that are out there. but if you don't like music with lyrics in another language than this is probally not the disc for you. There is a couple tracks that are instrumental and even a few english vocals, but around half of them is in Japanese. So I believe there is a enough here for everyone. You might want to try the samples to get a taste of it, and I believe after listening to these few tracks you'll love this disc also. Oh and by the way if you have a chance, try to see the series also. Very good even though short. because the music is even better if you have seen it when you remember the story. Actually The only thing I did not like about it is, it does not include the most excellent Opening Theme song of the show "La La La love Song". I just hope they release a Vol. 2 CD with it as well as a little BGM too. And it is a little short at around 40 minutes. But altogether is a very good disc and rates at 5 stars, but the release gets 4 stars, not because of the amount of minutes on the disc but because it does not include the very very good and in my opinion best piece of music from the series, next to "Close to you Sena's Piano II. I wonder why it was not included, maybe because it is not by Cagnet the main composers of the songs on the rest of the album. but I could be wrong. But a 5 star disc it is none the less, even without the before mentioned song. Well that is my opinion, and I hope this review helps anyone reading this decide if they want to purchase it. Thanks."
