"True that the 25th Anniversary album this was taken from is a good album, but whoever the idiot was who re-recorded it destroyed it. It was recorded to CD too fast. None of the tracks have the original quality. Notes are too high and it all zips together too fast. If you want a CD version of the 25th Anniversary album, this is better than nothing, but don't expect the same quality."

"This is a collection of perhaps the worst ever music heard on the tv series Doctor Who. Why it was ever released in the first place is a mystery itself - as for why it was re-issued, who knows. There are a few redeeming tracks from Dominic Glynn, but practically all of Keff McCulloch's work here is pure elevator music. Not an album to play to impress a prospective romantic partner..."
Buy this only if you have the time/equipment to remaster it.

"Whoever mastered this CD was an idiot - read why I think so:This CD came very late. Once I got it, the first thing I noticed was that ALL of the tracks sounded funny. Funny how? The pitch and tempo were shifted upwards slightly. Enough to make all the music sound awful. Such a pity too, because it has the "Trial of a Timelord" Doctor Who theme (my favorite, not found anywhere else I know of so far) and numerous tracks from "Delta and the Bannermen" (also a favorite of mine).My theory: the DAT was put to CD without converting the sampling rate from 48,000Hz down to CD Audio 44,100Hz. My solution was to rip all the audio from the CD, save as WAV file, resample at the proper rates (time consuming on 30MB files) and recreate the CD on my CD-RW drive.As I said... don't buy this CD unless you have the time and resources to make it enjoyable. It'll cost you a CD-R Drive, a CD-R and probably six hours.How embarrasing for the person who put this CD together."
