This album, released in 1983, features Makoto Inoue of Inoyamaland, a former member of HIKASHU and an environmental musician, performing re-arrangements of the soundtrack to the film Godzilla, with music by Akira Ifukube. The album features many musicians associated with Inoue, including Koichi Makigami of HIKASHU, Koji Ueno and Jun Togawa of Guernica, Hajime Tachibana, Shingo Tomoda of SHI-SHONEN, Toshio Takagi of Juicy Fruit and Toshiro Izumi of 8 1/2. This is a very interesting piece of work that shows Makoto Inoue's love for Godzilla, from the characteristic march of special effects to the stripped-down vocal track that has plenty of HIKASHU and Guernica in it. The touch of synthesizer is also very Inoyamaland-like.
