Exit Trance presents Zenbei No. 1 Cinema Covers 2 – Final Release Info

Cinema Covers 2Exit Trance presents Zenbei No. 1 Cinema Covers 2
Release Date: 7/1/09
Price: 1905 yen

Oh. Em. Gee. Ghostbusters! Raiders’ March!! WONKA’s WELCOME SONG!!! The final list for Cinema Covers 2 looks simply amazing. There are plenty of obvious picks but also quite a few obscure themes. Along with the aforementioned Willy Wonka theme, we’ll also be getting songs from Home Alone(!), The Last Samurai, and even Dinosaur. Sadly, there’s nothing as potentially inappropriate as “Theme from Schindler’s List” this time around.

The usual gang of Exit Trance artists will once again be doing the covers. Ryu* gets two tracks this time, one of them being “Ghostbusters.” Meanwhile, Dizzi Mystica gets the largest share with three tracks under his belt. I loved what he did with “The Imperial March,” so it makes sense that he’ll be doing the main Star Wars theme. The themes from The Dark Knight, and Pretty Woman are pretty inspired choices, though.

The biggest and best surprise is the appearance of N.O.-SYO. He was strangely absent from the first release, but he’ll be making his Cinema Covers debut with two tracks. N.O.-SYO’s distinct brand of rock-trance is sure to spice up “Raider’s March,” but I’m very curious to hear how “The Way of the Sword” will turn out.

Cinema Covers 2 isn’t entirely flawless, unfortunately. “Axel F” is present. AGAIN. B.U.S. did a great job with the theme on the first release, and Ron Rockwell’s electro-house version is nothing special. And isn’t “Welcome to Jurassic Park” essentially the same as the main theme that was already on the first Cinema Trance? They even have Starving Trancer doing it again.

    14. Wonka’s Welcome Song

    Can’t wait to hear it.

  2. mono-type Says:

    Yeah, Ryu* got two songs this time around, but only Ghostbusters is the one that’s actually new to Exit Trance.

  3. DanceMaster Says:

    Ahh, good point. I complete forgot that “Scarborough” already appeared on Gakkou Trance 3. Still really looking forward to “Ghostbusters,” though. I hope it’s as full of Engrish goodness as “Miss a Thing.”

  4. mono-type Says:

    LOL at least 2 Bemani artists have already done covers on the Ghostbusters theme (him, and DJ Yoshitaka). XD And yeah, I’m also hoping that it would be loaded with Engrish lulzness, much like the one from his fellow IIDX artist.

    With all the obscure/never-tried-before song choices, I would definitely look forward on this one, even though there are a few repeats from the first Cinema Trance!

  5. DJ Tomoe Says:

    OK,so,I just heard the Wonka cover.
    It’s kind of disappointing that the vocals last almost 1 minute and I can’t really hear the beat of the original song. The dark sound they gave to the song is not that good.

    Oh my god,the english in Ghostbusters is even worse than the IIDX cover. It’s awesome.

    The album is pretty good. My favorite song is Pretty Woman.

  6. mono-type Says:

    Yeah, Ryu*’s Ghostbusters cover is purely made of win!

    And yeah, this is even a lot more enjoyable than the 1st Cinema Trance. ^^

  7. DanceMaster Says:

    Let me guess, “Pretty Woman” is your favorite because of this little gem: “Is he fucking back to me?” The weird thing is he says “walking” correctly the rest of the time.

    The Wonka song disappointed me, too. I mean, the movie was kinda trippy, but the remix is just ridiculous. I also hate that it’s the longest song on the album
