By popular demand, I present "Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger Tokusou Sound File 1," the first of five albums featuring music from the 28th series in the Super Sentai franchise (adapted into Power Rangers S.P.D. here in the U.S.).
It consists of 35 tracks (15 of which are "S.P.D. File" spoken-word tracks featuring the cast of the series). In keeping with the modern Super Sentai Series soundtrack formula, this CD features reduced-size versions of the show's opening and closing theme songs and "image songs" plus background music score.
Next up on our DOUBLE FEATURE this month (from now on, at a random point in the month, I'll sic a DOUBLE FEATURE on ya)is the soundtrack of the 2004 Disney Channel Original Movie Zenon Z3.
This 10-track CD does contain songs that did not actually appear in the movie (like "Selena the Moon Goddess'" cover of Madonna's "Lucky Star"), however the majority of songs here did appear in the movie-like the "Z3 Remix" of "Supernova Girl" (the key song from the first Zenon film in 1999) and "The Galaxy Is Ours" (key song from Zenon The Zequel , albeit here in its Z3 incarnation).
Next time, we bring you the second album in the "Tokusou Sound File" series. Until then, stay happy.

I know that in my previous post, I promised to upload the soundtrack to The Last Starfighter, but earlier today, I learned that one of my favorite film score composers passed away today.
Leonard Rosenman, known for his scores to such films as East of Eden and Rebel Without a Cause (both 1955), Fantastic Voyage (1966), Beneath the Planet of the Apes (1970) and Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986), passed away of a heart attack at the Motion Picture & Television Country House and Hospital in Woodland Hills, California. He was 83.
In his memory, I post the score that made me a fan of his works.
Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (NBX Special Edition)
This NBXSE features all the tracks from the MCA Records commercial release plus the song "I Hate You" by Edge of Etiquette in both unedited and edited forms.
(Songs with a **: Performed and Arranged by The Yellowjackets; Composed by Leonard Rosenman, Russell Ferrante and Jimmy Haslip. )
("I Hate You" Written by Kirk Thatcher; Arranged by Mark Mangini; Performed by Edge of Etiquette; Edited version edited by William Raymer for www.trekcore.com.)

The post titled High School Musical OST (NBX Special Edition) came out as it did due to a malfunction of unknown cause. Let's try this again...
Today, I give you the NeoBlisseyX Special Edition OST to the 2006 Disney Channel Original Movie High School Musical. This film, likened by some to be a modern-day Romeo and Juliet (in fact, the "Twinkle Towne" musical in the film is renamed "Juliet and Romeo" in the national stage production, adding to the comparison), spawned two sequels: a 2007 DCOM (Disney Channel Original Movie) and an in-production theatrical movie by Walt Disney Pictures set for release (as of this writing) on October 24, 2008.
This NBX Special Edition OST features two of the eight karaoke tracks available in the retail Special Edition (look for the cover here), a performance of "Get'cha Head In The Game" by B5, an up-and-coming R&B group, and a song that was eventually deleted from the film.
Next time, journey with me to a war-torn planet called Rylos as we meet The Last Starfighter. Until then, stay happy.
