(I'm not being paid to give you these web locations.  I'm just telling you where you can order these online if you choose to.)

=====

There is only one CD out as of now that deals with Digimon.  See below for more info.

"Digimon - The Movie 'Soundtrack'"
[Peak Billboard Top 200 Albums position: No chart]

Being the only soundtrack out related to Digimon, it's not bad for being the only one.  However, it seemed to fail commercially because half of the tracks here have been released already by their respective artists/bands on previous albums.  The other half (which makes the disc worth buying) consists of 1 new song, a rewrite/remix of the Digimon theme, and various other songs used in the Digimon TV series.

I don't do MP3 files, so don't ask.

The track listing is below, with track times to the right.

A few things to note.  "Hey Digimon" is an extended version that includes a new set of lyrics to go with existing ones from the TV series.  "Kids In America", which precedes "Hey Digimon" was originally a 1981 New-Wave hit by Kim Wilde, and was re-done by Canadian pop-rock band, LEN, exclusively for this soundtrack.  "Rockafeller Skank" is an edited down version of the Fatboy Slim hit, the original being (probably) 8-10 min long......too long for this soundtrack and for most listeners.  "Impression That I Get" is the censored version, as the album it came from in its original form has some cussing not needed on a soundtrack aimed at the 9-13 age group.  "Digimon Theme", one of the hidden tracks is also an extended version not heard on the TV series.  The final 3 hidden tracks, 'Run-Around', and 'Here We Go" are all from Digimon 02 (Season 2).

My Opinion on the album:

I picked up this album mainly for the Digimon TV series music and "One Week", which was a song I liked when it first came out a few years back.  If you're a fan of alternative rock and ska, with a bit of dance hall/rave style music thrown in, this CD is for you.  "Hey Digimon" is better with the extra lyrics, and the reggae undertones make it listenable.  On TV it wasn't liked by most fans because it was played during battles...not the most appropriate song for a fast paced battle segment, as it is upbeat.  "Change Into Power" has only been played twice on the TV series, so it's included here as a hidden track.

My favorite track here though, is "Run-Around".  It's fast paced, short, and full of that heavy guitar sound that many popular bands like Limp Bizket uses in their music.  "I'm Going Digital" is another I like, as it's got the same speed as "Run Around", and it just plain out rocks.  Basically all the Digimon 02 music relies on fast vocals and heavy guitar work....making them perfect for the battles they're played on in the TV series.
