5 stars This is an often-overlooked instrumental masterpiece in my opinion. The title track and The Astronauts are the main attractions here (and a feast for the ears they are, too!) but the other tracks are great too, very charming and catchy and considerably lighter in tone than the long, spacey, grandiose opening suite and the driving, adventurous closing track. There are definitely some distinct pre-echoes of Peter Howell's later Doctor Who music here, but on a much grander scale, un-fettered from the slightly cheesy but oddly compelling sci-fi drama. Highly recommended for those who like anything from symphonic prog to ambient to synthpop to folk rock to techno (sometimes within the same song).
