A masterpiece that must be heard to be appreciated
Reviewed in the United States on December 31, 2018
I really wish the cover art for the album would get updated. As far as the music goes, the performance is indescribable! Richard Burton narrating, vocals by Justin Hayward of the Moody Blues... An entire orchestra... I have been a fan of this piece since the 80''s.

I bought the vinyl version of this album and this is definitely one of the coolest records I have. I''ve planned to buy it since I got a record player. This album includes two double sided records with Jeff Wayne''s musical War of the Worlds (obviously) inside of a dual pocket sleeve with art inside and out. Also included is a booklet with lyrics and script, multiple illustrations, and a cast list with short biographies. Highly recommend.

Like Rick Wakeman''s musical version of Jules Verne''s Journey to the Center of the Earth, this rendition of H. G. Wells'' War of the Worlds by Jeff Wayne combines original music with readings of the text. Wayne''s WOTW has more text reading than music, (compared to the Wakeman-Verne recording) but that''s fine. This version, with its strange music and otherworldly sound effects really puts you in the time and setting of Wells'' story and gives a heightened feeling of the horror of confronting his Martians with their advanced technology. (The picture of the Martian tripods on the cover is not accurate, but that''s a quibble.) The "Ulla" cries of the Martians sound odd and scary at the beginning but come across as mournful at the end. The musical numbers fit the story well, are well sung, and are nice melodies that will stick with you. Overall a fine performance that will please fans of H.G. Wells, as well as fans of science fiction in general.

One of the best of the "rock operas," carrying on a tradition of sf adaptations that goes back to Offenbach''s "Tales of Hoffmann" and "From the Earth to the Moon." Ordered it for an unusual reason after misplacing my old CD edition...needed "Forever Autumn" for my funeral music. Originally turned on to this by my wife-to-be...was Our Song, specifically with the Richard Burton narration. I discovered after receiving this (well ahead of the scheduled delivery date) that H.G. Wells and Orson Welles did a joint radio appearance in 1941, when they discussed Welles'' 1938 adaptation and Wells plugged "Citizen Kane." Gotta love the signature sound effect of the cyinder''s lid unscrewing (which Welles did with a large jar in a toilet stall). As the story implies, small world!

When I saw this among my "Santa" gifts on Christmas morning 1978, I was pretty much confused. I was 14 at the time. My musical interests were Thin Lizzy, The Stranglers (I also received their debut album, Rattus Norvegicus), The Clash and The Jam. Although Phil Lynott (from Thin Lizzy, my favourite band at the time), David Essex and Julie Covington (who I had heard of from the Rock Follies tv series we were forbidden from watching) all featured on WOTW, I knew nothing about it. I was interested in sci-fi through Doctor Who and Star Trek, but I hadn''t heard of HG Wells or Jeff Wayne for that matter. Our dad introduced us to the family gift - a brand spanking new National Panasonic music centre, all chrome and lights - and once the hubbub had died down and my brothers and sisters had retired to their respective bedrooms to play with whatever toys they got, I put on the first side of this rather disappointing gift. No one could''ve believed (groan - sorry, I couldn''t resist it) what would happen next. The spoken intro started. I didn''t really know much about Richard Burton, but his voice was hypnotic. My interest was piqued and the hairs on my arms stood on end. And when the first chords struck up - DUN DUN DUNNNN - I was hooked. I quickly hooked up my headphones (another present), lifted the needle back to the start, and for the next 90 minutes or so, I was transported to Victorian London, being pursued by Martian tripods spouting black smoke and heat rays. I met delusional artillery men and insane parsons. I kicked my way through Autumn leaves, and watched an early gunboat bring down the invading Martians. I hid terrified, in the basement of a demolished church while Martians searched the ruins around me. And I rejoiced when the invaders were finally vanquished by our microscopic bacteria allies. And then I did it all over again. And that was to be my life for most of the Christmas holidays before returning to school and living through it all again with my school chums. Since that Christmas I have gone on to buy the CD of WOTW, the special edition CD, the DVD of the stage show and took my parents to see the stage show when it appeared in Belfast in 2007, as a way of thanking them for introducing me to it. Now my son has bought me this new copy of the album for my 55th birthday to replace my heavily played original. And I still get goosebumps each time I hear "No one would have believed, in the last years of the nineteenth century, that human affairs were being watched from the timeless worlds of space..."

My late Mom bought this for me for Christmas 1978 and since then it has been a firm favourite. I can got for a couple of years without playing it, but once I do I can''t stop playing it! I have bought several copies of it over the years, including the New Generation version, which I actually quite liked. I decided to buy this new re-release just to see if anything was different and also because most of the copies I already own are a little crackly and worse for wear now. The album is pressed on heavyweight 180 gram vinyl and housed in two plain white sleeves - disappointingly these aren''t poly-lined, but you can''t have everything. The labels are plain red rather than the familiar CBS labels. The sound quality is superb with no hiss or crackle even in the quiet passages. The booklet is how it always was and hasn''t been updated, so Jeff Wayne is still expecting his first child in July 1978! The reprint of the booklet is spot on and again is just how I remember it. I spent many hours as a youngster going over every detail of every painting in the booklet. A genuinely outstanding re-release and hopefully will persuade those who aren''t familiar with it to buy it and give it a whirl.

''No one would have believed, in the last years of the Nineteenth Century, that human affairs were being watched from the timeless worlds of space. No one could have dreamed we were being scrutinised as someone with a microscope studies creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. Few men even considered the possibility of life on other planets. And yet, across the gulf of space, minds immeasurably superior to ours regarded this earth with envious eyes'' ''The chances of anything coming from Mars are a million to one he said'' ''An invisible ray of heat leapt from man to man, and there was a bright glare as each was instantly turned to fire. Every tree and bush became a mass of flames at the touch of this savage, unearthly heat ray.'' Although ''concept albums'' came to have a bad name in ''pop'' music, this (like Pink Floyd''s ''Dark Side of the Moon'') is one that worked. A bestselling album when first released in 1978, it was written by Jeff Wayne, an American by birth who settled in Britain, and who is otherwise best known for writing advertising jingles. Wikipedia classifies him as still active professionally, but does not mention any examples of work he has produced in recent years. He is quite old now. Some parts of this are better than others. However, when this epic is heard as a whole, imperfections become unimportant besides its overall impact. Based on HG Wells'' 1897 magazine serial (published as a novel the following year) of a Martian invasion of Earth, this remains truer to HG Wells'' original than most other adaptations. It remains set in Surrey and London rather than transplanted to New York, Boston or California, and in the 1890s rather than updated. In science fiction (and superhero) films it is now generally agreed that aliens or mad scientists intending to conquer or destroy the Earth begin with New York City, normally Manhattan. However, Wells wrote when science fiction was still in its infancy and did not yet know this. Consequently, his Martians land in Surrey and destroy Woking rather than Manhattan. The late Richard Burton provides an atmospheric narration of excerpts from the text of the original novel. Wells got the idea from the sad fate of the Tasmanian Aborigines, said to be the only native people to become extinct under the rule of the British Empire, whose simple Stone Age tools did not allow them to compete with British settlers equipped with Nineteenth Century technology. Wells wondered what might happen if humanity came into contact with an extraterrestrial civilisation as far advanced in relation to ours as ours was to the Tasmanian Aborigines. The idea that the Martians, having long ago eliminated all diseases from their own planet, would be vulnerable to the Earthly common cold virus to which they have no resistance was probably, in updated form, the inspiration for the 1990s film Independence Day in which invading alien space ships are incapacitated when they catch a computer virus. Wells suggested in the quotation at the start of this review from the beginning of the story that mankind is unknowingly being watched from Mars by a civilisation and intelligence far greater than our own. Astronomy and space exploration have in the intervening 124 years advanced sufficiently that we can say it is highly unlikely that any such superior civilisation or intelligence is watching us from Mars. Whether superior minds with superior technology are watching us from further out in space, and what their plans are, we are yet to discover.

A great album slightly remastered for no apparent reason. A fantastic cast from the 1970s gives this masterful work a terrific sound from its time. Add the that the gravitas of Richard Burton''s amazing voice as the narrator and you have possibly the best rock album ever produced. However, this is a replace!sent for a damaged one and I have loved this since my teenage years back when it was first released, so I really notice some of the minor differences such as a slightly different Flash for the Martians and occasional changes to sound effects and musical riffs. I still love this album but the exceedingly minor differences do stand out whenever I listen to it. The story of the Martian invasion is great, the singing very 1970s rock and the music amazing. I just wish the accompanying book was the same as that supplied with the vinyl double album.
