Comments about the soundtrack for Frank Herbert's Dune (Graeme Revell)

Edit | Delete
A surprisingly GOOD score!

After reading some mixed (if not poor) reviews for Revell's Dune(2000)score I chose to watch the DVDs just to see how bad the score truly was. Not because of my low expectations but because I know when I get moved by a good piece of composition I found myself very pleasantly surprised by this score! It has a wonderful main theme plus some great haunting ethnic pieces.
My only (be it minor) gripe is that the action cues could have been written with fuller orchestral punch rather than the strong electronic backing. I do also wish that a complete score gets released one day as there are key musical cues missing on an otherwise wonderful soundtrack album. I love Toto's score for the original 84 version of Dune and I also love Brian Tyler's Children of Dune. I believe Graeme Revell's score fits perfectly between the two scores to compliment a near perfect anthology of music for the Dune saga.
