Buy it... if you seek a definitive collection of original music from the "Twilight Zone" television series on a finely crafted 4-CD set.

Avoid it... if neither the series nor its archival sound in parts are of any interest to you, or if you seek the set specifically for the unspectacular Jerry Goldsmith selections.

Twilight Zone: (Compilation/Various) Few fantasy or science fictions shows could exist on television today without the popular appeal of the "Twilight Zone" series, which ran on CBS from 1959 to 1964. Like Steven Spielberg's "Amazing Stories" several decades later, the producers of "Twilight Zone" recognized that only with top talent in crew and actors could the series truly be successful. This quest for quality by CBS led to a significant budget (at the time) to be allotted for the original music for the series. Composers under contract for the studio included names both famous and upstart, and the series would benefit in the long run by its employment of such a diverse collection of solid talent. The history of the music on CD has been troubled, though in 1999, anxious fans of the "Twilight Zone" series were treated to almost 300 minutes of original music from the show, courtesy the Silva Screen label. Unlike many of the re-recordings offered by Silva through the years (their defining soundtrack products, really), this 4-CD set features only original music from seasons one through five, as well as complete scores from some notable episodes. The music had been released previously on 5 LPs in the United States, with portions released on two very early and totally out of print CDs by Varèse Sarabande. There was a set of five CDs of "Twilight Zone" music available in Japan in the early 1990's, but the sound quality on that set was not as crisp as this official, 1999 Silva product (nor did the Japanese set have such a condensed and straight-forward ordering of tracks). Unlike some other lengthy sets of music from classic, cult science fiction TV shows (such as the "Battlestar Galactica" package that was released at about the same time), this enhanced treatment of "Twilight Zone" scores is available as a regular commercial release.
