I'm "nearly" speechless at the total lack of musicality, taste or depth of the reviewer of this magnificent score.

The film was crap, but Broughton rose above it time and again with one of the most scintillating film scores of the 1990s. It's easily in the top 5 and was the best of its year.

I suggest you've caught an undersized reviewer in your pool. Throw him back immediately and give him time to mature before he hangs himself with his words.

Well, since he's the one who has written 900 of the 950 reviews at the site, I'm afraid that wouldn't be possible.

I do have good news for you. I just saved a ton of money on my car insurance by switching to Geico!

Honestly: If this review truly disturbs you to such a great extent, you have the constitutional right to write your own review of Lost in Space and submit it to Filmtracks for publication right next to the one you find inadequate. And, if it's a well written review, I'd be happy to personally ensure that it is published.

Otherwise... have a drink and forget about it!

Christian

I tell you, this is one of the great things about the site. The fact that you will go ahead and post an alternate review in the review spot as long as it's intelligently written. If I knew more about music (terminology, techniques, etc.) I'd probably write one myself. I respect the fact that you will give an equal forum to dissenting opinion. A great many sites would never consider that.

I appreciate it, too. My tongue was mostly in my cheek when I wrote my comments, but I honestly do believe "Lost in Space" to be severely underrated here...it was the "classiest" score of its year, and I never tire of listening to it.

Actually, I find myself closer than Christian's opinion on this one than yours. I admit I do enjoy the score, and I think perhaps Christian was a bit hard on it, but I have to admit that it really is rather subdued and non-distinctive compared to many of Broughton's other works (Such as Silverado or Tombstone). Lost in Space is an enjoyable easy listening album, but it really isn't all that memorable. The main theme is pretty to listen to, but rather bland. I realize Broughton was probably aiming more to capture the "family" aspect of the story rather than the adventurous side of the story with the main theme, but the end result is it sounds more like a family drama than anything adventurous or exciting.

I would probably give it ***, as it is at least very enjoyable to listen to, but I certainly wouldn't rate it as one of Broughton's better scores.
