2.0 out of 5 stars If you have the other version, skip this. March 6, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This sounds like it was made in about a week on a shoestring budget. What is it? Well, it's a slaughtered version of the *real* Akira soundtrack with dialogue and sound effects from the movie woven in. A hardcore fan of the movie might like this, but I certainly didn't. True, there are some goodparts, but not many... Tetsuo's laugh, for instance, has to be one of the most chilling sounds on record, and there's some odd interweaving of different tracks from the *real* soundtrack that might've been promising given a little more time. This one was a real disappointment to me, considering how great the *real* soundtrack was. Save your money and instead try to find some Geinoh Yamashirogumi CDs that you can get imported from Japan. I'd reccommend Ecophony Rinne and Ecophony Gaia in a heartbeat; good luck finding them, though.

1.0 out of 5 stars THIS SUCKS!!! March 21, 2004
By "mgd45"
Format:Audio CD
I am so dissapointed in this sound track. Akira is my favoret anime, and I've always loved the music from it, but this item was a complete waste of time and money. This version of the akira sound track is simply a digital recording of the origional movie's audio, complete with Japanies dialog, and sound effects. If you want the sound track to this movie, look around, and find the one that actually has more than 4 tracks on it. I think that one may be just the music, but I don't know for sure.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the purchase July 5, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a HUGE reap-off!

I wish I would had NEVER purchased this!

I had the original soundtrack on disk prior and because someone stole it, I wanted to purchase a new one. Well THIS is NOT like an actual Akira soundtrack per say. This is ripped off directly from the movie with the characters talking in the background. In other words, he just clipped the sound file from the movie and is ripping them to disks to sell.

Fooled me once and never more!

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This release has nothing ot do with AKIRA. It is a little release by the damned, a early punk band. that is it. I LOVE punk and i LOVE AKIRA. This is not really as advertised. Good punk band, local is fistifuks and anime.... Venus Wars
