When Tomita sticks to what Holst wrote, he follows every turn and bend of the score, save for a big cut in the last part of Jupiter and an eviscerated Uranus that nearly disappears altogether. Moreover, the music - especially Venus - often does lend itself to an electronic space flight fantasy, with Tomita's arsenal of phase-shifting, flanging, pitch-bending, envelope following and reversing choral effects and more on full display

THE PLANETS 1976 (Holst) THE PLANETS is a completely different mood for TOMITA, but he did a fantastic job on it. Each time I hear any part of THE PLANETS performed by Symphony Orchestra, it sounds very two-dimensional compared to TOMITA's and just falls flat. It is as if Holst composed THE PLANETS for TOMITA, even though the Holst family would not allow this album to be released in England.
