"This is the first of Neil Norman's Greatest Science Fiction Hits. The album features re-recordings of famous science fiction themes, produced and arranged by Neil and the late great Les Baxter. The songs are done in a discofied synth pop style, which works pretty well in most of the cases here. I said that these are famous science fiction themes, but four of the tracks here were apparently written especially for this album by Baxter or Norman. I have been unable to find any information about a film called "Journey to the 7th Galaxy". There have been films called "Phantom Planet", "Not of This Earth" and "Black Hole", but the tracks here do not appear to be from those films. Regardless of all that, this is a fun album. Recommended to science fiction fans."

"An expert in creating a sound very similar to the original Sc-Fi score, 16 familiar soundtracks are arranged and performed by Neil Norman and His Cosmic Orchestra. Produced and arranged by Les Baxter and Mr. Norman, this compilation has some interesting tracks for soundtrack collectors. While many of the serious fans will prefer the "original soundtrack" these are quite good and very entertaining.There are some stand outs - ALIEN (Jerry Goldsmith) the 1979 Blockbuster set the standards once again for film scoring on the Sci-Fi level - CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND (John Williams) in 1977 this composer gave us the feeling we are not alone and the alien is not the enemy, but a stranger we need to communicate with, by what method, well "music" of course, the universal language.Total Time: 41:39 on 18 Tracks/ GNP-Crescendo Records - GNPD 2128 (1986)"
