My rant/review of the Pokemon Black - Victini and Reshiram Music Collection

After listening through the whole CD, I have to say I'm very disappointed in Pikachu records and Media Factory in a "so close, yet so far" way. Don't get me wrong. The pieces of music in the movie were very nice to hear. I might call it some of Mr. Miyazaki's better works than Movie 13's soundtrack. But let me tell you what I mean by "so close, yet so far." It's an incomplete soundtrack. This doesn't make sense because Movie 13's Soundtrack CD had every single piece of music released. The music that wasn't released were the major and important pieces that played during the climax of the movie:

-Zekrom Vs Golurk
-Reshiram Vs Zekrom (Reshiram Version) (Pretty much the best piece in the whole movie which would be later used in an episode of Best Wishes Season 2, Mantine vs Samurott)
-The Wrath of the Earth (Reshiram Version)
-The Dragon Force Reverses (Reshiram Version)
-V-Create (Reshiram Version)

I have no idea what goes on in the minds of the folks that release these CD's. They were doing so well with the soundtracks from Movies 8-12 with 13 having a 100% complete soundtrack. Why did Pikachu Records suddenly stopped trying with this one? Did they think the Zekrom soundtrack was so much better that they don't care what gets released in the Reshiram Version? I don't know.

Overall, I would give this CD a 3 out of 5. If the above-mentioned were released, then I might have given it a 4 or maybe a perfect 5. But nope, you disappointed me, Pikachu Records. I hope that Movie 15's soundtrack CD is 100% complete, or has major pieces and leaves only the filler and unimportant pieces unreleased. I'll have to watch the movie when it comes out.

    Hey, I liked the 22nd (The Protective Pillars Activate (Reshiram Version)) and 23rd (The Sword Castle Rises! (Reshiram Version)) tracks from the Reshiram version quite a lot! </joke>
    I think that Pikachu Records should have just sold the full Movie 14's OST with double the price of the usual Movie OST. If they were able to fill the entire Movie 13 soundtrack in one CD, they surely could have done the same with the 2 Movie 14 CDs.

    Now some good news (actually it was known for a while):
    Movie 15's CD will have the most tracks out of every Pokémon Movie BGM CD. At least 41 should be used for the movie, which will make 100% or near 100% of all the tracks (it should be noted that Movie 11 had 42 tracks, of which 20 were unreleased). The 42nd is obviously the movie's opening, and the 43rd to 57th should be the music from 15th Short.

    I think Movies 8 and 10 had some unreleased music.

    This track from DP189 for example, sounds like something straight out of Movie 10, but it doesn't seem to be on the soundtrack.
