Back by popular demand is Bill Conti's large symphonic score to the 1987 live-action He-Man adventure Masters of the Universe. This marks the fourth appearance of Bill Conti's enduring score on CD, featuring the complete program of this large and thrilling work on a single disc. Bill Conti's epic score is a highlight of late '80s scoring. Yet more important than giving Masters Of The Universe the breathlessly energetic, theme-filled feeling of a major symphonic blockbuster, Conti provided an earnestly valiant heart to the characters with music that is full of emotional commitment. The composer’s power has sold out every past soundtrack release of Masters Of The Universe, and the fans’ fondness towards the movie has endured just as strongly.

The story has He-Man (Dolph Lundgren in his first starring role since playing the villainous Ivan Drago in Rocky IV) accidentally transported to Earth by a cosmic key, which Skeletor needs to complete his conquest of the universe. The race is on between He-Man and Skeletor to find this all-powerful key.

5/5 Great Score, what is not to love... you know you do!
-Jeremy [Retro-Zombie]
