Overview

Yu-Gi-Oh, based on a Japanese comic strip about a boy who fights virtual monsters, had by the early '00s spun off a card game, software, and a popular children's animated television show. This is the soundtrack to Yu-Gi-Oh, with the concept being that it is something that can be used to play the Yu-Gi-Oh game, but perhaps also something that complements the animated series for regular watchers of that program. In that sense, it's a presold niche product for kids who are really into one or another facet of Yu-Gi-Oh, though immediately that's a much bigger niche than most. Musically, it's a spirited but anonymous blend of hard rock-metal, somber orchestral passages, and scraps of rap and power ballad with snatches of dialog. The lyrics, naturally, have to do with struggles and conflicts found in playing the Yu-Gi-Oh game (or watching the program), and as such have limited appeal to anyone not immersed in that culture. The overall mood linking the tracks is one of sinister, ominous threat that can be overcome by courage and skill. One wonders, though, about the advisability of promoting Yu-Gi-Oh products to the next generation when the world was so torn by armed conflict (and threat of same) at the time of this 2002 release.

If you're a fan of this hit anime t.v. series, you must get this CD. It's so cool! From the first track,"Yu-Gi-Oh!,Theme", to the last track, "The World Of Yu-Gi-Oh!" , this CD rocks! I LOVE IT! And, I hope they will produce another one. But, how will they ever make one as cool as this one is, I just don't know.
