The difference is in orchestration. You'll understand, when you hear. Don't worry, if really is a good score.

Meanwhile it arrived and... well... I somehow didn't expect what I finally got. My mother was with me when I listened to Logan's Run for the first time and we both had a hard time suppressing the laughters about Mr. Goldsmith losing it completely (track 2 and 3). As you said, Richard, it really is an odd combination of two halves (Super Mario meets The Omen). I really cannot imagine what the movie is like. Nevermind, I like this experimental score a lot!

 

However, Damnation Alley... just wow... an instant favourite of mine!

Check out Night Crossings - a very fine early '80's score that is similar to his Star Trek music of that period.  Unfortunately it is sold out but maybe you can find it online:

This score is already in my shelve... and one of my 10 personal favourites.

It's kitschy, goofy fun (most of the synth stuff in the dome plays for scenes that obviously were filmed in a shopping mall with extras dressed in bubblegum colors) but while the score has the brilliant three-note-theme (the opening) and two great action ballets, it's working best when attached to the movie.

So, is the movie okay/good/great/outstanding/a Masterpiece?

I'm surprised that Studs Lonigan hasn't been mentioned yet.  The lengthy A Game Of Pool is worth the price of entry and includes a virtuosic piano performance from one Johnny Williams.

 

As for the scores that are actually listed in the first post, Caboblanco is tremendously underrated and a personal favourite.  The Great Train Robbery is rambunctious, flamboyant and quite brilliant.  Players has some fun fanfaric scherzos but not much substance.
