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.
