REVIEW: “Dragon Ball Z 20th Century-SONGS BEST” CD
Published by 24 March 2013, 6:37 PM EDT

It was originally announced as a generic “Best Song Collection”, but Dragon Ball Z 20th Century-SONGS BEST finally came out last month. It is actually the first “new” CD since the Dragon Ball Kai music debacle went down — leaving us with a promised-but-unreleased fourth soundtrack/compilation from the “refreshed” series — so it was no surprise to see them fall back on the old material.

With the new film Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods upon us, it perhaps made sense to rekindle some of that nostalgia with us older fans. Does this “remastered” compilation do the nostalgia justice? Read on…!

There are plenty more reviews on the way, including those for the FLOW “Hero ~Song of Hope~ / CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA” CD single and the Battle of Gods Original Soundtrack itself. Stay tuned during March and April!

    Great review, and I agree. I’m glad you recommended the “Legend of DragonWorld” set, since it contains all of these songs (and more) for roughly the same price. I’m currently trying to get the “Complete Song Collection” sets, but “DragonWorld” was my first DBZ music purchase and it’s served me well for a good half-decade.

    I really don’t think they meant to imply that the songs were “remastered” in the same vein as the songs on the 2006 Remix album. Your comparison to that disc is certainly interesting to read, but I would think that they would have made more than just a passing mention of it in official descriptions if any of the songs were truly updated.

    Very, very eagerly awaiting your review of the “Battle of Gods” soundtrack! Keep up the great work, guys!
