2005 Soundtrack – Dragonball Z3

Like its predecessor Dragon Ball Z & Z 2 Original Soundtrack this album contains a collaboration of American as well as Japanese artists. American credits include Steve Lukather guitarist of the 80’s rock band Toto and 70’s R&B Soul Funk band Tower of Power, but despite these credits the album remains a Japanese exclusive. The opening theme “Ore wa Tokoton Tomaranai” is performed by Hironobu Kageyama. As its title suggests this release stays focused on tracks that are heard on Budokai 3, unlike its predecessor which focused on the first two games on a single disc. As a result, the soundtrack’s track list appears to contain a more complete selection. However, many compositions that were featured throughout the trilogy’s story modes yet were left out of the previous soundtrack were still overlooked, prompting many disappointed fans to rip copies of the tracks straight from the game itself.
