The 1984 Dune movie gained a critical success,and many critics from the part of Dune fans.I will try to give advices for Dune-fans and non-Dune-fans for what to do to increase the listening experience,and a short review.First and foremost,I recommend to get the 2001 album,because that is the album which contains the less dialog,and where the performance is the best.Second,to hear the main themes performed exactly as heard in the film,I suggest to get the ALIEN INVASION: SPACE AND BEYOND II COMPILATION from SILVA SCREEN,because at the first disk of it you can hear the best performance of the main themes ever appear on CD.I also recommend the SILVA SCREEN compilation to Filmtracks leadership as an outstanding listening experience.I suggest to listen the CD with a stereo-quality loudspeaker or hi-fi towers,because the tracks sounds better there than on mini-loudspeakers.
The negative aspects of the 2001 Cd is that the choir at the first track is overused compared to the music as heard in film.However,most of the irritating little noises and unnecessary dialog intervals are disappeared,and in general,the quality of music,and especially,the quality of choir is better.The album itself contains excellent string work,excellent and ethereal choir,woodwinds,soft and gentle brasses,heavy percussion,electronic guitars and even piano and xilofon interludes which reflect to the losses and fears of individual men,sadness,the wonders and dangers of the world of Dune,and to the visions and of Muad' Dib,who is the Kwisatz Haderach,the superior being.Highly recommended to get the 2001 album,and listen to it on stereo-quality loudspeakes or at hi-fi towers,and to get the ALIEN INVASION: SPACE AND BEYOND II compilation from SILVA SCREEN to hear the themes performed at their full glory.
