Buy it... only if you are one of the lingering fans of the show and seek the consistently sleek, but low-budget synthetic music heard throughout earlier episodes of the series' three-year run.

Avoid it... if you expect the episodic scores to offer the same heroic and optimistic spirit of the strong title music for the show, which realistically isn't worth the price of the album alone.

Seven Days: (Scott Gilman) For three seasons from 1998 to 2001, "Seven Days" was an Earth-bound science fiction alternative to the "Star Trek" series on Paramount's UPN channel. It proposed that alien technology found at a crash site in Nevada could be used by the American government to send a man back seven days in time to stop a catastrophic event from occurring. Given a limited supply of alien fuel, each mission had to merit careful planning and execution. Over the course of the first two seasons, credible storylines did just that, though as the show neared the end of its 66 overall episodes in the third season, a infusion of unnecessary humor into the scripts caused "Seven Days" to lose its traction. One of the greatest ironies of the show was that, after several years of conjuring terrorist plots to foil, its demise came just prior to September 2001. The show's placement in UPN's schedule often put it before or after the immensely popular "Star Trek: Voyager," perhaps extending enough interest in the opening and closing music for "Seven Days" to make a 1999 album release for the show possible. Composer Scott Gilman wrote the music for all 66 episodes of the show, following up on his experience writing scores for television mini-movies and series such as "Beverly Hills 90210" and "Melrose Place." Given the popularity of science fiction on UPN at the time, "Seven Days" was the height of Gilman's achievements in scoring; his career would not include subsequent compositional work of significance for the screen thereafter. Unlike the music for UPN's "Star Trek" offerings, Gilman was alone responsible for performing the music for "Seven Days," and he handled the time-crunching, low budget task relatively well. His underscores for the episodes are completely electronic, and his background in various rock venues drives many of the rhythms he uses for the show. Unlike some of the scores being produced by one-man scoring machines in the late 1990's, Gilman's music isn't as simplistically annoying as the norm. Nor does it crash around without direction. His drum loops, keyboarded strings, and occasional synthetic cymbal accents and sound effects are generally consistent throughout each episode.

NOTES AND QUOTES
The insert includes notes about the show and and its creator/producer, though the sleeve does not fit well into the jewel case provided. The insert also includes a quick background of Gilman's talents and career, and, as mentioned in the review, features one very creepy picture of Gilman's naked torso rising from a pit of fog.
