Total CD time: 54:30

G Gundam tracks takes up almost half of the disc, if you don't count the
bonus tracks, which would fit the original Singles History disc better.
This disc is kinda unfocused, with 6 Tomino tracks, 2 UC OVA tracks and 5
alternate universe tracks (all from G), whereas the original Singles History
contained only tracks from Tomino's UC saga. The G tracks stick out like
sore thumbs both in theme and the music's style (personally I thought track
7 ruined the whole thing - it made Mazinger's theme song sound like mature,
non-cheesy music!) and this really begs the question why no Wing or X tracks
were included as well. The presence of the 0080 tracks also make you
wonder about the absence of the 0083 tracks. All in all... kinda
unsatisfying unless you're a hardcore G Gundam fan I guess.
