It was rumoured that Jerry Goldsmith would compose the theme tune for Enterprise, having previously created the themes for both The Next Generation and Star Trek: Voyager. This was later denied on his official website, and series executive producer Rick Berman explained that they would be seeking to use "a little bit more contemporary kind of music".
It included two versions of the theme tune of Enterprise, entitled "Where My Heart Will Take Me", which had been previously called "Faith of the Heart". It was sung by Russell Watson and written by Diane Warren, with a version as re-recorded for Watson's album Encore appearing alongside on the Enterprise album with the version as heard played alongside the opening credits of the television series. The remaining tracks on the album were instrumental music composed by Dennis McCarthy for the pilot episode of Enterprise, "Broken Bow".
In his review for Allmusic, Neil Shurley said that "Where My Heart Will Take Me" sounded better on the album than it did on the television show, but didn't tie in with McCarthy's work, whose work he described as an "orchestral tapestry". Overall he said that "There's nothing spectacular here, but Enterprise does make a representative and worthy addition to the Star Trek musical canon."
