I'm ashamed to say that I haven't even opened my copy yet. I know the score from the old Starlog LP and know (sort of) what to expect- just can't seem to find the right moment, you know?

Definitely not something you would want to listen to every day - you have to be in the right mood! But I enjoyed the score far more than I anticipated, based on my memories of that old LP. Or course, my tastes have gotten a bit more sophisticated since I was 16! ;-)

Just the opposite...my Explorers CD is unopened and IT'S ALIVE is nealy worn out...go figure!

Been listening to this every so often since I got it... yep, it's still a winner. Kinda sad that it doesn't much attention from most here (popping in to ask if it's limited and whine about phrasing doesn't count), but oh well. Their loss.

Agreed! I would particularly point to Herrmann's underscoring for the climactic scene where John Ryan tearfully reconciles himself to his monster baby. Very touching, in the weirdest way, as only Bennie can do....
