A timeless classic!

Some of the most spine-tingling, eerie music I have ever heard, and a brilliant story to boot. Every time I hear the 'Martians' I get shivers. I was most disappointed when they didn't use any of the music from this in the movie adaptation with Tom Cruise, not even a snippet.

Thoroughly entertaining. This is one recording that will never leave my collection.
