Facts / description
2001 sees a change of direction for the Back In Time series: a themed CD with the basis in this volume being space and space-related C64 game themes. From the Christopher Franke-esque Babylon 5-like rendition of W.A.R., lovingly re-created by Rob Hubbard himself, to the orchestral reworkings of the Zoids main theme that sound right out of the film Dune, along with the powerful Industrial feel of Armalyte (and that pretty much echoes the C64 version), the slightly panicky feel of One Man and His Droid which sounds like Space 1999 on steroids, the Philip-Glass inspired epic that is the Delta theme which seems to last forever but in a nice way, and rounding things off nicely with a Return of the Jedi, Ewok song like rendition of the uplifting high score theme from the unique and surreal Wizball game, this is a CD that is not just painstakingly recreated workings of C64 game themes. It’s a soundtrack, not just for C64 fans, but for sci-fi fans and indeed a generation of film soundtrack fans to boot.
