Buy it... if you want to hear the City of Prague Philharmonic's fantastic performance of the Klingon attack music from Star Trek III: The Search for Spock and a nicely arranged suite from Star Trek: Nemesis.

Avoid it... if you already own all of the other included performances on the "Space and Beyond" albums and the price of this new set isn't worth 11 minutes of newly recorded music.

The Star Trek Album: (The City of Prague Philharmonic) By 2003, it had been several years since the Silva family of labels had released their last major, critically acclaimed collection of science fiction film music. After the success of their "Space and Beyond" album in 1997, they produced two sequel sets in the series (in 1998 and 2000), both very attractive. Over the course of those three albums, the City of Prague Philharmonic performed nearly every major piece of Star Trek music available at the time, and while most of it appeared on the first album in that series, there were additional piece sprinkled throughout the two follow-up albums. All of these double-CD sets offered interesting performances of the selections, and while some of them were better performed than others, the overwhelming magnitude of available re-recordings from the Prague musicians (along with their always crisp sound quality) remains staggering. Other labels that had recorded Star Trek music on their own various compilations, including the Telarc presentations of Kunzel and the Cincinnati Pops and Varèse Sarabande releases of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, had already condensed their Star Trek recordings onto single "final frontier" album offerings. It was only a matter of time before Silva did the same with their own recordings from the franchise, but unlike the other two labels, Silva had already released so many recordings of Star Trek music that two-CD sets were now required to feature all of it. The resulting "The Star Trek Album" contains all of Prague's previous recordings, most of their sound effects, and a couple of new cues to round out a selection from the first ten feature films and four television shows.
