Buy it... if five or six outstanding performances amounting to half an hour of material merits the purchase of the whole set.

Avoid it... if you are dissatisfied with the more suspect collection of scores represented on this product compared to the two superior sets that came before in the series.

Space 3: Beyond the Final Frontier: (Compilation) The "Space and Beyond" series of film score re-recordings by The City of Prague Philharmonic have been among the most enjoyable collections of film themes ever produced for album. The series debuted with "Space and Beyond" in 1997, followed immediately the next year by "Alien Invasion: Space and Beyond II," and both albums were as outstanding as collections of science-fiction film music can get, with astute arrangements and robust, accurate performances throughout. Both products were critical and popular successes, perhaps not of the same magnitude of the "Cinema Choral Classics" albums also released by Silva Screen Records, but still much to the appreciation of film score fans. In the case of both series, the third entry would take slightly longer to hit the shelves, with "Space 3: Beyond the Final Frontier" released in the summer of 2000. It plays very much along the same lines, though, with the noteworthy collaboration between The City of Prague Philharmonic and the Crouch End Festival Chorus continuing. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of this third "Space and Beyond" 2-CD set is its selections from the genre, stretching away from purely space-related scores and diving more into the straight-forward action and fantasy genres to reclaim adequate material for performance. With so many of the marketable sci-fi scores already represented on the previous products, the producers may simply have run out of relevant material; given that sci-fi fans are typically also in tune with the adventure and fantasy genres, this question is likely of little consequence. As with any of these compilations, its success depends completely on the selections of compositions for performance, as well as their arrangement. Having already released the most commonly popular selections on the first two albums, this one suffers mildly from the strain of finding good material for inclusion. As expected, "Space 3: Beyond the Final Frontier" contains the most recent additions to the sci-fi genre at the time (from 1998 and 1999), but to round out the album, a more obscure selection of older scores is also included.
