AllMusic Review by

This English LP includes Keith Emerson's and Derek Austin's respective soundtracks to the Japanese animated films Harmageddon and China Freefall. Unlike most of Emerson's other soundtracks, Harmageddon features synthesizers pretty much exclusively (a nondescript vocalist is added for "Children of the Light"). The music is rather tepid and not very memorable. Derek Austin's music for China Freefall, meanwhile, seems to alternate between weak new age and run-of-the-mill progressive rock. This long-unavailable LP is likely to be of interest only to the most obsessive Keith Emerson collector.
