One nugget

The Buckaroo Banzai track is perfect. The others I checked out were pretty bad. So plunk down your 99c and rock out with that 80s cult classic starring Peter Weller (no, not Robocop, the other cult classic starring Peter Weller).


AWFUL cheesy renditions...

If you want something that sounds like a 1970's Electric Light Orchestra, but not quite as good...more like someone took a bunch of MIDI files and played them on a secondrate synth, this is your album. iTunes, please, PLEASE get some SF theme CDs from other than amateurs!


I enjoy some of these tracks too much, I think.

Several of these tracks are my secret guilty pleasures to listen to. Okay, so the album looks like a bargain bin find, but c'mon, you know you want to own the themes to Buckaroo Banzai and Godzilla.

About Neil Norman

The head of production for the GNP/Crescendo label, and the son of label owner Gene Norman, Neil Norman has transformed his band, Neil Norman & His Cosmic Orchestra, into the world's leading authorities on science fiction-inspired music. Dressed in wild space-age clothing, the group, which features Norman on guitar and synthesizer, bassist J. Palmer, drummer Bart Robley, and ex-Tom Scott and Clark Terry keyboardist Bill Burchell, brings the full repertoire of sci-fi music to life.

A session guitarist as a teenager, Norman became resident film scorer as a student at UCLA Film School. He recorded his debut solo album, Not of This Earth, while still attending school.

A highly skilled producer, Norman has worked with such artists as the Ventures, Queen Ida, Robin Trower, and Savoy Brown. He served as executive producer of 20 Star Trek albums, including soundtracks to Generations and the Emmy award-winning Star Trek Voyager, and produced the soundtrack recordings of Mission: Impossible, The Outer Limits, and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. ~ Craig Harris
