Product Description

TvYu-Gi-Oh! ~ Yu-Gi-Oh: Music To Duel By

While many soundtracks include music "inspired by" a given property, Music to Duel By is intended to inspire. The songs on this companion to the Yu-Gi-Oh global phenomenon (toys, cartoons, software) is supposed to provide background music for the tension-packed card games played by Yu-Gi-Oh enthusiasts. The album opens with the TV show's theme, a hyperkinetic mix of symphonic sounds and industrial metal, and contains a few other songs heard on the series, but most of the music appears here for the first time. Three of the entries are singled out as "special battle tracks," and they sound very much like high-end video game scores: the of-the-moment drum & bass percussion, the campily canned violins, the grab-bag source material. Those cuts are admirable for their short-attention-span theatricality, the way the various distinct musical segments edge the tension up a notch at a time, allowing for an occasional balladic moment of repose. Some of the vocal tracks evidence that peculiar Japanese fascination with overproduced '80s American pop, and will likely send kids running to their Linkin Park and Mudvayne CDs, but it's hard to argue with an album that includes a limited-edition set of stickers. --Marc Weidenbaum

4.0 out of 5 stars Such an apt title October 31, 2002
By Ayame
Format:Audio CD
OK, so I'm 25 and female. What in the world am I doing reviewing a Yu-Gi-Oh! CD? Well, that's because this CD is probably one of the best CDs from an English Dubbed anime that I've heard in a LONG time. The extended version of the theme is completely worth the purchase price of the CD, but it doesn't stop there! Just about every song on the CD is a fun expression of the themes presented in the show. And they're just fun songs. I can easily see myself sitting around the table playing some Duel Monsters with my nephew as I listen. Some of the highlights include: I'm Back, Your Move, No Matter What, and Face up Face down. Even the instrumental tracts are good. There are a couple of songs that have a bit of cheese to them, We'll Be There comes to mind as does World of Yugioh!. But even these grow on you. One notable absence from the CD is Not Gonna Panic. And it is definately missed.
Of course, I personally would love to see the inclusion of the Japanese themes, especially the opening and closing from the third season. And my ultimate dream on any American CD from a dubbed anime is to see the actual voice actors singing some of their songs. But I guess that will remain a pipe dream at least for the time being.
Anyway, if you or anyone you know are a Yu-Gi-Oh! fan, they will throughly enjoy this CD. And the stickers that come with it are a wonderful piece of laginappe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Total Must-Buy January 16, 2003
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
This CD is, in one word, incredible.
1. Yugioh! Theme
This is an extended version of the theme song. Very nice- it has really cool Egyptian music in the background, and it's still recognizable, but it's different enough to keep you interested.
2. Time 2 Duel
One of my favorites. Fast-paced, cool lyrics, very nice song overall.
3. I'm Back
Kaiba's song. This is another one I really like. It has great lyrics that really remind me of Kaiba (ex: "You thought you were so tough, had it all under control. Now nothing's enough- gonna take back what you stole. Give it up- cause now I'm back.") And awesome guitar music at the end.
4. Summon the Dragon
No lyrics, but I like it that way. It's a nice battle track.
5. Your Move
I really like this song too. It has fast music, cool lyrics that are easy to understand, and is all-around cool.
6. Duel Madness
This one's kinda weird. The rap is done it a mechanical sort of voice, but I guess it's meant to be like that because at the beginning it mentions Kaiba's technology.
7. No Matter What
I LOVE this song. So great.
8. Exodia
No lyrics, cool music.
9. Ahead of the Game
Kaiba-like, egotistical music. "All my technology, all my smarts, my creativity will rip you apart." Cool song.
10. We'll be there
A[...] duet between Tea and Tristan about friendship and sticking together. May not appeal to everyone, but hey, I like it.
11. Face Up Face Down
Go Darren Dunstan! (a.k.a. Pegasus) This is for sure the real voice actor. Chilling song, eerie Pegasus-like lyrics, easy to listen to over and over and over...
12. Millennium Battle
The third and last battle track on the CD. Again, good music with a good beat.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's very good, but not what I expacted. October 30, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I'll say this: the album's not on my top ten list, but it certainly won't be at the bottom of my CDs either. I liked it, but I expected it to have a bit more...edge or somethin' like that. But that's just me. It's very enjoyable to listen to, I've listed ratings of the songs below:
(1) Yu-Gi-Oh theme- This is obviously the theme song, but on the album it's longer, that really cool part with the ancient Egyptian sounding violin part is awesome, and the line "your move" is more easily heard. A good way to start it off. I give it 4/5
(2)Time 2 Duel- It aint bad. It sums up the basic point of the show really. It's a rock/punk/rap beat that's really enjoyable. But I have to say that the chorus is really, really ANNOYING. Sorry, but it is. I give it a 3/5
(3) I'm Back- A must for Kaiba fans, after all that's who the song's about. Mainly about the conspiracy at Kaiba corp., the abduction of Mokuba, etc. I have to say I LOVE the background music in this, and the lyrics are good too! I personally think they coulda left out the dialogue from the show...but that's just me. I'm not a huge Kaiba fan and like I said that's who the song's about. I give this a 4/5
(4) Summon the Dragon- This is an awesome instrumental..possibly a theme for the Blue Eyes or maybe a theme for all the dragons in general. But whatever it is, it sounds very good, I was quite impressed. I give this a 5/5
(5) Your Move- This is the reason I bought this album!! I ADORE this song so much! It's all rockish and stuff! ^__^ The lyrics rock ( I love the "Egyptian secrets" part and the music blew me away. A bunch of my friends accuse me of loving this song because it's mainly about Yami (AKA Yugioh..which means King of Games) and well uh...*blush* Yeah, that's pert of why I like it so sue me!

5.0 out of 5 stars My absolute favorite CD in the world!! November 16, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This has to be the GREATEST CD I've ever had the honor of listening to, much less owning it! I have to tell you, I'm very picky about what I like and don't like. This, however I LOVE! I've seen some reviews about it that weren't... well, they weren't very nice. But, you know what they say, "no accounting for taste." I think this perfectly captures the essence of the first season of Yu-Gi-Oh! here in America! Love every single one of these! Now, for my track-by track review (I happen to be listening to them as I write)! The only slight disappointment is that "I'm Not Gonna Panic" wasn't on here... But, hey, you can't have everything, right?
1. Yu-Gi-Oh! Theme- This, of course, is the extended version of the imfamous opening theme. The one everyone seems to hate, for some odd reason. Granted, I do wish it had more singing to it, but the Egyptian music is rather cool.
2. Time 2 Duel- THIS is a rockin' track! Very confident, very cool. It has Yami Yugi written ALL over it!
3. I'm Back- Yep, this is Kaiba's image song, all right! This wins my award for "Attitude" on here, that's for sure. And you get to hear more here than what we all did in the episode, "Duel With A Ghoul," ending with a very nice musical fade.
4. Summon The Dragon- Quite a cool instrumental piece here. Though it has no words, this is nothing to sneeze at.
5. Your Move- I'm told this is the song they played during the Weevil/Yugi match, but I don't see a whole lot of resemblance. Another rockin' song! I especially like the rap-like "Egyptian secrets are revived, ancient powers have survived. When wrong from right's not black and white, friends will have win the fight. Solve the Puzzle's mystery, unlock a hero's destiny. Now, alter egos, no one knows, side by side, to fight their foes. Hey! It's time to duel!
