AllMusic Review by

Nicholas Pike's Starkid channels the sound and spirit of John Williams' classic scores of the '80s, in particular E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial. Pike nevertheless fails to capture the sheer scope and wonder of Williams' music, and like its accompanying film, the score feels like little more than a low-budget knockoff of far superior antecedents. Pike focuses almost solely on action themes to the exclusion of the lighter, comedic elements that typically define a well-rounded family film score -- Starkid quickly establishes its epic orchestral scale and never shifts gears.
