Previously known for writing the immortal theme to the classic sitcom Cheers, Craig Safan was a novel choice to score the 1984 sci-fi adventure The Last Starfighter, and while some elements of the music have dated poorly, it nevertheless remains one of the most intriguing and original cosmic-themed soundtracks of the post-Star Wars era. Safan emphasizes both halves of the space opera equation, employing an overstuffed orchestra to create a series of epic, heroic themes favoring time-honored melodic idioms over modern synthesizer beeps and blips--fanfare brass, sweeping strings and martial rhythms evoke the classic adventure scores of Hollywood's golden era, and save for a handful of ill-considered concessions to mid-'80s electronics, The Last Starfighter proves a surprisingly timeless and even traditional listening experience. Intrada's 1996 reissue is the definitive edition, roughly doubling the amount of material included on the previous Southern Cross release. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
