    From such an abundance of amazing Star Trek music, I will make simply one comment about The Ancient Combat Music from Amok Time and thusly limit myself. This music truly captures pure, unleashed, wanton savage lust. It truly captures the Vulcan heart and Vulcan soul. It expresses the primitive, primal drive that defines a people–and Spock in particular. Yet, it is a drive which is rigidly suppressed with brutal self-discipline. When that restraint is removed…I have rarely heard music that is so primitive, savage, wild and erotic. It should be a concert hall standard along with Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring and Steiner’s tribal dance music from King Kong. Brilliant and very arousing! 🙂
