It is interesting to note that the ending of "Imperial Attack" sounds very similar to Gustav Holst's "Neptune" from The Planets. Williams undoubtably payed Holst a brilliant tribute here with the alternating harp and celesta glissandos in contrary motion with string tremolos and sustained ominous brass chords.
