The resemblances between certain passages of Gustav Holst's "Planets" suite and Conti's effort merit some comparison, particularly that of Holst's "Jupiter" suite. Even a cursory listen can detect substantial, borderline plagiaristic similarities. With this said, however, Conti's primary themes, particularly the Yeager theme, are some of my favorites, and props to Clem for finally getting around to reviewing it. I've waited a long time for this one.

Take care, all.
