My favorite classical album and there's a very ironic thing to note. In the insert is a note from the conductor. He states that he wonders what Holst would have done for a track if he had known about Pluto. Well, it doesn't matter anymore as Pluto is offically no longer a planet. I still would have like to hear what he would have done myself. Holst showcases very powerful pieces and with each note one can sit back with thier eyes closed and see exactly what Holst was wondering and what he thought of each Planet.
