I bought this on a nostalgia trip it's that simple.

It's good but it's just the soundtrack for the movie. There was a lot of music in the t.v series that could do with an airing (the opening theme for one), that could have made this a definitive release. Of course there is the chance that those recordings don't exist anymore, but confirmation of that would have been nice. & They could have sourced the theme & ending theme from the series itself as bonus tracks. However if it's "Suspension" the theme 'song' you are looking for, it's got it.

Despite a prolific career, Stu Phillips will always be to most people "the guy who did Battlestar Galactica" (and sadly to some, the guy who wrote the Colonial Fanfare for Bear McCreary...) That, however, is by the by. Just as Glen Larson tried to follow the relative acclaim of Galactica with another sci-fi project, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, along followed Phillips to give the series pilot its score.

The first reviewer of this CD seems to be confused, as this is the soundtrack released for the pilot only, a remaster of the vinyl that appeared at the time of its UK cinema release, and as such does not feature the snappier TV series theme (Silva Screen did a good, extended version of this that is widely available on a number of compilations, if you really want that). What this CD does feature, however, is a smattering of utterly superb action cues that unleash the smaller orchestra available to Phillips and give it the grandeur of a score for a film with ten times the budget. From the snarling brass and staccato punches of the pirate battles to the swelling, pounding inevitability of Buck's perilous approach to New Chicago, the disconcerting rhythms of the mutant attack and blaring, arrogant fanfare of the Draconian flagship, this is a masterclass in action scoring. Only the twee theme for robot Twiki, a misguided "space disco" and the main title song cause dips in interest.

The track listing, as the liner notes make clear, follows the original album as that was the only master available, but with Intrada releasing the remastered complete scores of the original Galactica in stereo shortly it may be that the original Buck Rogers tapes may show up and we will get to enjoy the episode scores, which of course include early work by a young Bruce Broughton.
