5.0 out of 5 stars Tremendously inventive, totally surprising. 9 Jan 2001
By Mark Grindell - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I was astonished to see this music actually available. Being somany, many years since the first production date, I would hardly haveexpected to find something preserved so accurately. This is, in fact aperfect recording. The music itself is really astonishing. Ratherthan an endless trundling out of the Star Trek theme, Sol Kaplan comesup with a collection of brilliant orchestral minatures in which hedisplays an absolute and total command of large scale orchestralwriting. I would guess his major influences would be Sibelius, Mahler,and probably Richard Strauss, but you would have to also certainlyinclude Edgar Varese and possibly Jacob Druckmann. Some of his ideasappear to spring from a probably uncatalogued collection of martialthemes, but his ability to paint vivid and powerful colours is likenothing I have heard before. Some of the themes reach really deep andwill endure for many decades to come. The way he ties in the StarTrek theme itself is very clever and elegant, making quite a trick inthe tail towards the end of the piece... What on earth has this dearfellow done since, or before? I am very, very impressed with this andwould absolutely recommend it to anyone, even classical music buffs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Before "Jaws" there was the "Doomsday Machine"... 18 May 2007
By Media Mike - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Steven Spielberg's Jaws has one of the most recognizable movie themes ever..the shark theme. But the "da-dum da-dum" music that made John Williams's career was already done ten years earlier...and is on this soundtrack.

The Star Trek episode The Doomsday Machine featured an ominous machine that was the sci fi equivalent of a giant shark: a silent, big, grey behemoth that swallowed spaceships whole. The tension was established via the soundtrack by a simple "da-dum" theme. Like "Jaws", it would start slowly and softly and gradually turn up the tempo and the volume.

I think "Doomsday Machine" is a great soundtrack by itself. "Amok Time" is a terrific companion...its a completely different sound with a sixties pseudo-spiritual approach. But the fight theme is a classic. Both of these soundtracks on a single CD make this one a winner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, classic Sci-Fi TV Music 6 Jan 2006
By whatever_gong82 - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Music composers Sol Kaplan and Gerald Fried are two of the better music writers for television back in the late 1960's. Both were famous for scores for other things (Kaplan for "The Spy Who Came In From The Cold" and Fried for "Gilligan's Island"), but showed that they could create music for a then new project: Star Trek.

Kaplan's score for "The Doomsday Machine" emphasized what was going on in each scene, underscoring how tension packed the episode was when it was made in 1967. (With the Special Effects that are available now, if they ever redo Star Trek, this is one episode that would seriously "amp up" the tension!!)

Fried, on the other hand, used his impressive Jazz training to show Mr. Spock in his "pon farr" state, and also to give the previously never seen before Planet Vulcan an alien atmosphere. Of course, the famous music for the fight scene between Spock and Kirk has been imitated often, but never topped.

An excellent CD for music and Classic TV fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Here's the original Star Trek "Battle" music... 5 Dec 1999
By Warren J. Savage - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Yep, this CD contains the Star Trek 'battle' or 'fight' music that Joel, Crow and Tom Servo would quote during MST3K shows -- the music you think of whenever Captain Kirk, Spock and Bones are in a life-or-death struggle. The music was originally written for "Amok Time," the episode where Spock's libido goes into overdrive, and he battles Kirk "to the death" over Spock's bride.
Also on the CD is the music from "The Doomsday Machine." Not as memorable, but still good, solid movie music.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Trek Treat 29 Aug 2009
By D. Howells - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I have always been a fan of the original Star Trek since it was on network TV back in the 60's. Like the show itself, the music grew on me. It was a key component of each adventure. Unlike the music of the Trek spinoffs, which was subdued and, for the most part, forgetful, the original Trek music had a wide variety of moods; it could be creepy or it could be full of fanfare. This CD captures the flavors and excitement of two classic Trek episodes and the quality is so good you want to blast it from your sound system. Sol Kaplan's cues and themes from "The Doomsday Machine" are rich with feeling and sound. This episode was great from beginning to end and so is the music. It sounds like Kaplan had extra musicians in the room for this one and I think I recall reading that somewhere. In this episode, it seemed that there was very little of it that didn't have music accompanying the action. Gerald Fried's music for "Amok Time" is much different but no less memorable. His cues and themes are mysterious with a lot of percussion, as he set the moods for Vulcan. Who can't sing or hum from memory the fight music during the Kirk/Spock battle for T'Pring?
This is exactly my point about the original Trek music. It was a character just as much as any of the actors. Hearing this music again in all its richness recalls each scene and even specific dialogue. This CD is a must for Trek fans and a good buy for television music enthusiasts as well.
