Sonic Images: Prime Time: (Compilation) It's not unusual for record labels that regularly produce albums of film and television music to eventually arrange some of their best material on a compilation. The Sonic Images label, sustained in the late 1990's by its immensely popular albums for the cult sci-fi show "Babylon 5," produced more television score albums than perhaps any other label during that era. Although specializing in fantasy and sci-fi music for television, the label has also produced the albums for mainstream shows and mini-series such as "Chicago Hope" and Lonesome Dove. Unlike previous Sonic Images compilations devoted to re-recordings of adventure themes or retrospects of a single composer (such as products for Mark Snow and James Horner), this "Prime Time" album of 2000 features only original performances of television themes and a few select cuts from various shows' underscores. Those selections are limited by the items that Sonic Images already owns in its library and has released in full before, with "Prime Time" thus serving mostly as a sampler of the best material taken from those already existing Sonic Images albums. No new, unreleased items are to be found. For the most part, Sonic Images has chosen the best material from its history to include, but that's not to say that all of it is good, or that it functions well with the rest of the music in their library. The drawbacks of the album include some of the somewhat immature, pop oriented sounds of "Pacific Blue," "Poltergeist: The Legacy," and "Raven." At the same time, there is some very enjoyable material sprinkled in between. The title themes for "Chicago Hope" and "The Sentinel" are popular choices for fans of Mark Isham and James Newton Howard, respectively. Jeff Rona's excellent "New Hope" track from "Chicago Hope" is one of the underscore selections provided. Jay Gruska's "Lois & Clark" is generally solid, though there's no excuse for the terrible remix that precedes the remainder of its representation on the album. Basil Poledouris' Lonesome Dove needs little discussion, leagues above the rest of the material in quality.
