I've heard little of the Brandish original soundtrack, so this is just an "as is" review. This cd starts out with a nice 7 minute Electric Orchestra track arranged by Tamiya Terashima. I was a great fan of his work, especially on Ys V Orchestra Version and Legend of Heroes 4: Electric Orchestra, and his track on this one is just as powerful. He did this track years before the above albums, but he still packed just as much feeling and emotion into his arrangements back then.

Then we have 24 Special Arrange Version tracks, arranged by Nami Goto and Yoshihisa Suzuki. The arrangements all are solid, with a few excellent standouts that I highlighted with my sample selection. The synth quality seems acceptable to my ear, not bad, but nothing special. These arrangements are, in my opinion, on par with the more popular Ryo Yonemitsu arranges on some of the other Perfect Collections.

Finally, there are two Tomohiko Kishimoto arranged JDK Band tracks. They pack the standard high quality JDK Band rock we have come to expect.

Bottomline is that I really like this cd and reccomend it to all. Buy it if you see it come up somewhere. eBay or Yahoo Japan Auctions are pretty much your only options for finding this treasure, but find it if you can.
