5.0 out of 5 stars Foot-stompingly good (!) 21 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is one CD you can listen to years from now and still enjoy. In my opinion, this was one of the best rock'n'roll musicals ever (have been to it twice) and though soundtracks are never as good as the real thing, this one comes extremely close. V witty at times, and an excellent 60s feel-good compilation to boot. Buy it, put it on and DANCE.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this show! 5 Mar 2003
Format:Audio CD
This CD has all the brilliant tracks from the stage show 'Return to the Forbidden Planet.' Classic hits from the 50's, but with a sci-fi flair, such as 'Great balls of fire' adapted for an asteroid storm, will keep your listening for hours! Fun, catchy and memorable, this CD is a must for all fans of the show, and a great listen for anyone else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer good fun 31 Mar 2008
Format:Audio CD
I was lucky enough to see Return To The Forbidden Planet around 3 times many years ago and it genuinely was a show that blew me away - the talent of all the performers in the show as they rotated around all the instruments on stage literally performing the role of the orchestra and cast was outstanding. The soundtrack is a collection of very well known rock and roll songs adapted lyrically to fit the shows story - you will know the majority of the songs on this album and it is just sheer good fun to listen to.

This soundtrack is full of songs that all ages will remember from the Beach Boys to Cliff Richards and the Shadows. The songs are excitable and vibrant. Great Vocals and Brilliant songs. Everyone should own this soundtrack.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Show 13 May 2005
By "bd85"
Format:Audio CD
For fans of this musical, or those new to it, this is a great recording. The songs stand up as great songs on their own but they work as a great collection. Lots of the libretto is kept in which links the songs and most of them are very faithful to the score. The only draw back in my opinion is some of the singing voices aren't great, in particular the science officer who sings 'Go Now' and miranda who sings 'teenager in love'. Over all though it is a good recording of a great show.
