Editorial Reviews

The summer of 1998 heralded the big screen debut of one of television's most classic science-fiction shows: Irwin Allen's Lost in Space. The saga of the space family Robinson unfolds when a saboteur sneaks aboard the Jupiter 2 with the intent of destroying the mission and is unwittingly trapped aboard during takeoff. While the destruction of the Jupiter 2 is averted, enough damage is done to send the space ship hurtling through space on an unknown course. Starring William Hurt, Gary Oldman, and Mimi Rogers, Lost in Space made a spectacular premiere last summer. To give Lost in Space a sound that would capture the incredible on-screen adventures, composer Bruce Broughton (Silverado, Tombstone) created a major, epic score. With grand orchestral splendor for the launch of the Jupiter 2 from Earth, aggressive dissonance in the action scenes, and a rich palette of symphonic color throughout, Broughton has made the Robinson's world a spectacular soundscape. A soundtrack album released on another label at the time of the film's premiere included a collection of rock songs and a suite of excerpts from the Broughton score. This new edition provides a comprehensive recording of Broughton's score, totaling 67 minutes -- all stunningly played by the Sinfonia Of London.

Bruce Broughton is one of the best composers of our time. He sounds very reminiscient of John Williams at times and know how to pull something off. I am a big fan of his scores for the various Disney attractions like Ellen's Energy Adventure, Timekeeper, The Making of Me and various others I just knew that I had to get this album. It was definitely worth the money and for 60+ minutes of music I was definitely pleased with the product. The entire album is based on variations of two central scores; the main theme and Smith's theme.

Prologue: While this composition does not appear in the movie it's nice to listen to the calmness of the piece.

Preparing For Space: One of the best tracks on the album Preparing for space contains both the main theme, Smith's theme and the theme when Major West and John Robinson first enter Jupiter 2. It is interesting how the themes contrast from each other. The main theme is incredibly soothing while Smith's theme is dark and coniving.

The Launch: Easily the best track on the album Launch starts with a variation of Smith's theme that quickly transcends into the loud and dramatic blast of the main theme. It softens down and ends up picking up again just for the launch.

Robot Attack: The first 20 seconds start off in a silent trumpet solo that reminds me alot of one cue from John William's ET score. After a few seconds of silence it suddenly pops out an intense, action filled score that fits the scene perfectly.

Into The Sun: This track definitely picks up the tension. Variations of the main theme and Smith's theme are mixed evenly throughout while some other dramatic cues take over.

Spiders: This is the longest track on the album.

This score is quite possibly the most underated score ever composed, which in my humble opinion is a tragedy. This score should be hailed as a classic (which it is). The main theme is perfect and completley upstages the film itself. Doctor Smiths theme is devilishly malevolent while at the same time being playful (which is the characters' essence). Among the better tracks on this CD are "Into the Sun", "Preparing for Space", "The Launch", "Spiders", "A New World", "Guiding Stars", "The Time Bubbles", "Through the Planet", "Back into hyperspace", "Fanfare for Will" and the obligatorily titled "Lost in Space". These tracks are the perfect collection of Action Music and 16th Century-esque romantic music. If you like John Williams or Jerry Goldsmith- you will LOVE this score. It is the best of both of those composers (with a LOT more originality). This score is a classic and this excellent release of it is far superior to the rock/alternative/score variety sountrack released a year earlier. The only debit (a small one) is that it is missing the Apollo Four Fourty Mix of the John Williams main title-which I will admit is among my guilty musical pleasures in life. Oh well...I'll take this score anyday because it is a classic.
P.S. WHERE WAS THE ACADEMY OF MOTION PICTURE ARTS AND SCIENCES WHEN THEY SELECTED 1998 BEST SCORE NOMINEES?!?!

I am a huge fan of the John Williams music composed for the original TV series which this film was based on.(I highly recommend the CDs of this music which Amazon.com have for sale at present).I read that Bruce Broughton (who did an equally magnificent job with his score for TOMBSTONE, capturing the essence of the great symphonic Western scores of yesteryear such as THE BIG COUNTRY) had to rush to complete this score for the release of LOST IN SPACE in cinemas. John Williams had been sought by the producers to redo (and add to?) his original material but due to commitments to Steven Spielberg was ultimately unavailable. Whether Broughton was the studio's next choice is unknown to me but happily he was given the assignment and created one of the best scores I've heard in recent years. This "complete score" CD soundtrack is welcome as the earlier soundtrack only contained highlights from his score, adding pop vocal material which - in the main- was barely noticeable in the film.(A good thing in my opinion as nothing dates a film more quickly than contemporary music, and this is a futuristic film!) No doubt the record company wished to "cross" the soundtrack and pop markets. Viewing the (underrated and cleverly made) movie I would notice music cues which had not made it on to the earlier CD and lament this, however this has at last been redressed by the score CD. The review above mine (which raises the issue about Academy Award nominations)is right on target. This is a sweeping, majestic score which is beautifully orchestrated and played and - like all good film scores- elevated a good film and made it better than ever.Read more ›

And i am very happy by this particular CD, because this is the long version (not the too short one). So, very long music and quite a very good action music. I do not know much the original TV serie (not shown often in french TV !) but i look forward to correct that.
