The main complaint with the first Sailor Moon CD was that it lacked any Japanese music. The eight songs on Lunarock include two from Japan: "Moonlight Densetsu," the original Japanese opening theme song, and "Ai No Senshi" from Sailor Moon R. There is also a new scoring of the Beatles classic "I Want to Hold Your Hand," as Sailor Moon's pledge to Tuxedo Mask. Of the five original American tunes, Sailor Moon (Jennifer Cihi) has another single, her peppy battle theme "The Power of Love" (one of the program's best). Two other singles are Sailor Jupiter's "Daddy's Girl" (a gentle lament about growing up) and Sailor Mars's comforting "Nothing at All." The final two are the three Sailor Scouts' yeah-yeah trio about boys, "I Want Someone to Love," and Sailor Moon and Mars's musical spat, "Who Do You Think You Are?" This second effort is at least as good as the first Sailor Moon CD, maybe even better. --Fred Patten

"It seems impossible that an album with a mere eight tracks to its name could possibly be of such high quality and provide such countless hours of listening enjoyment. Yet, Sailor Moon & the Scouts: Lunarock does just that. As a collection of vocal tracks from the Sailor Moon TV show, both the North American and Japanese versions, and a few pieces that cannot be found anywhere else but this album, Lunarock provides a pleasant mix of lyrics emphasizing loyal friendship and true love above all.I've also included short commentary for each of the individual tracks:1. Power of Love - A battle song, it is inspiring yet falls short of outright aggression. "Blazing emotion, there's a light that flows from the heart. It's a chain-reaction, and nothing will keep us apart." Love truly conquers all. Sung by Jennifer Cihi.2. I Want Someone to Love - Hip-hop...Sailor Moon style. Fun and light-hearted song about first love. Sung by Jennifer Cihi, Sandy Howell, Patricia Tollett, and RAW (Ronald Aaron Wasserman).3. I Want to Hold Your Hand - A modern remake of the famous Beatles tune, this track will undoubtedly surprise many with its wild, electric makeover. Sung by Jennifer Cihi.4. Who Do You Think You Are? - A dialog song sung between "Sailor Mars" (Sandy Howell) and "Sailor Moon" (Jennifer Cihi), this music is a charming and humorous characterization. Though they argue bitterly, they also reaffirm their friendship.5. Moonlight Densetsu (Moonlight Legend) - The original opening music to Sailor Moon, this is the first version of Moonlight Densetsu, the one sung by DALI. The music is in a minor key and, as such, has a dark, mystical mood to it. Although quite similar in sound to the Sailor Moon Theme recognized most readily in North America, this is a love song first and foremost, speaking of a beautiful love that blooms against all odds. "Even if disaster confronts us when we meet, I will never forget the two of us. Millions of stars are watching us, seeing us attempt to live in love together."6. Daddy's Girl - Of the joys and insecurities of growing up and the lingering desire to still remain close to "Daddy." Will certainly appeal profoundly to the teenaged girl and any who feel that their maturity has separated them from their parents. Sung by Patricia Tollett.7. Ai no Senshi (Soldier of Love) - The second to two Japanese tracks on the album, this is a battle song. More than friendship alone, Ai no Senshi emphasizes romance and love as the source of true power. That love blooms in the heart and is tranformed into the strength to fight evil. "As it is, we love and are apart. And yet, I want to see a sweet dream. I will not let evil end it!"8. Nothing at All - A sweet, gentle lullaby of faith, friendship, and loyalty. A warm and relaxing close to the album. "I'll be the one who hears your prayer/You don't have to ask me, I'll be there/I'll be the one you'll never have to do without...no/When you have nothing at all/You'll still have nothing to worry about." Sung by Sandy Howell.Sailor Moon & the Scouts: Lunarock will lift the spirits of any listener, young or old, male or female, Sailor Moon fan or no. I give this album my highest recommendation!"

"This is THE CD! A MUST for Sailor Moon fans! When I heard "Power of Love" on the TV series (The Final Battle,Episode 81)I wanted to fight with them! Incredibly great songs, especially Who Do You Think You Are? and Power of Love! Keep fighting, Sailor Scouts! Best song to fight the Negaverse with is Power of Love! Wicked Cool!"
Good, but it needs...

"I own this CD and have a bit of commentary on it. The fact that Japanese music is on it is big plus, but it doesn't sound like the same instruments are being used--- too much percussion! It also sounded as though the singers were different. I could be wrong on that last one, but still... Moonlight Densetsu sounds like Americans are singing it. My recommendation? If you're more accustomed to the North American dub, this is the CD to get you interested in the original Japanese. If you're a die-hard for the original, order import!"
