This is not only a must have for any science fiction fan, but also for any audiophile. This CD contains the clearest and most "alive" recordings I've ever heard. I used the the Star Trek Motion Picture Theme as the test track when shopping for high quality main speakers a few years ago. Now I intend to use it for testing the accuracy and dynamic capacity of sub-woofers. Telarc has thoroughly impressed me with this production.

"Time Warp" was the first recording by Erich Kunzel and the Cincinnati Pops that I ever purchased. And it, without a doubt, was money well spent.
The album is a sci-fi lover's delights, featuring one-of-a-kind orchestral renditions of popular scores. Kunzel and company have outdone themselves with their performance on the rarely heard "The Menagerie: Suite", composed by Alexander Courage for the pilot episode ("The Cage") of "Star Trek". John Williams's "Superman: Love Theme" and "Star Wars: Throne Room" sound clearer and more majestic than in their original soundtrack forms.
Over fifteen minutes of the classical music heard in Kubrick's "2001" are presented here and that alone makes this an essential purchase.

It's a shame not many people are lucky enough to stumble accross this cd. "Time Warp" is the golden masterpiece for any sci-fi audio enthusiast and an unprecedented addition to any home library; great classical!

I remember when I first purchased this CD. Compact Discs were hard to find (at least the kind of music I liked). Everything was still on vinyl. This sounded so incredibly powerful over my LPs. "The Menagerie: Suite" composed by Alexander Courage with Erich Kunzel conducting still sounds very impressive. This Compact Disc really demonstrates the prominent characterists of Digital recordings. I still love my soundtracks on LPs but this CD has now become a nostalgic part of collection of film music.

Kunzel's 'Time Warp' was THE de-facto standard hi-fi demo disc back in the day. Featuring some stunning dynamics, it was a way to show off the capability of high end sound systems with giant amps and speakers. Turn this thing up and it will shake your entire house if you're not careful, and it was one of those first CDs with the infamous warning label to keep the volume down to avoid damaging your system.

Musically, it's also pretty good. Mainly large orchestral show tunes (Star Wars, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica themes) and a couple of gratutious Sprach Zarathustras (opening theme to 2001 A Space Odyssey) thrown in there, I believe that classic music purists looked down their nose at the bourgeois nature of this type of music and the spectacular way in which it is presented here.

Still, the darn things still sounds spectacular on a good system after all these years. There is a lot more to good hi-fi sound than explosions and pounding ultra low frequency dynamics, but if you want to hear how your system does with this type of material as well as enjoy the guilty pleasure of vintage sci-fi showtunes, this is a must-have disc.

I first heard this CD in 1988, and haven't heard one as dynamic since. Try to find a DDD recording containing both the Zarathustra and Blue Danube tracks in addition to the comparatively newer Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica songs---it can't be done! Bass notes will challenge even the best subwoofers, so heed the warning on the front of this CD, lest one of the all-time great classical recordings becomes a speaker killer. A must have if you want to 'see what your system can do'.

This is one of the most impressive recording i've ever heard. Full Dynamics of the recording can bring your speakers to their knees. It contains the science film music favorites of all times. The first music is a cool synth to amaze your friends and the Star Treek music is a must!

I've been searching for this CD. I loaned my copy to a friend and never have had it returned. The beginning cut has a boom that challenges my subwoofers. It is a great collection. It was the first CD I ever purchased and I won't let it escape again.
