You're Under Arrest: Original Soundtrack (1994 Anime Video)
Genres: Special Interest, Pop, Soundtracks
Sound track for a Japanese animation with a slow tempo.
(4 out of 5 stars)
""You are under arrest" is the official English title for the Japanese anime "Taiho shichauzo" In order to really appreciate the beginning theme song in this sound track, you have to see it with the animation which accompanied it. The ending song, however, is great as is. (I can listen to it a hundred times without getting tired of it, or did I listen to it more than that?.) The musical instruments in the songs reflects the actions in the animation, so it's best appreciated when you saw the animation already and understand why some instrument was selected over another. I would have considered "I'll arrest you (heart-mark)" to be the better translation. The only regrettable thing about this is that the TV series didn't last long enough for them to compose more songs, but the TV series was followed by movies which in turn had its own new songs. Why only an 8? Since I saw many Japanese animation, and tend to be picky. Also, these songs cannot be fully appreciated without having seen the animation, so I give it a 7.5, which is rounded up to 8. END"
