One of the Best   Wednesday, April 2, 2003 (7:00 a.m.) 

After reading Mr. Clemmensen's review, I felt convicted to buy The Fury from Varese Sarabande. "No Williams collection is complete without it," he said, and he was right. This is definitely one of the best horror scores ever made, and even though I have never seen the film, the score was enough to send shiver's down my spine. It is one of William's best works, and yet, somehow, it goes under the radar unnoticed. It contains themes that are classic Williams in their grace and beauty, with heavy dark bass undertones, causing, as Mr. Clemmensen stated, the room to shake. I am telling you this now...if you are a fan of John WIlliams, you will be doing him and yourslef a disservice by not purchasing this soundtrack. There are only 2,999 copies left, so hurry up!!!

A 5-STAR Review and 4-STAR Rating ??   Thursday, April 3, 2003 (7:42 a.m.) 

This time, I dont understand filmtracks rating.

You give 3-star to the VARESE Original Re-recording and 5 for the limited one, but from your review it's clear the re-recording version (and I am not talking now about SOUND QUALITY) is best. So, if BOTH edition do contain the RERECORDING, both should be 4-5 stars!

I thought you were rating THE NEW LIMITED VARESE ALBUM, not just all the editions out there. So, if it is 5 STARS, it is 5 STARS. To rate the score AS HEARD IN FILM (i.e., as heard in the ORIGINAL SCORE recording now available with VARESE CLUB LTD ED) and then the rerecording distinctly is another matter. But doing that with the 2 albums and give the older one only 3 STARS sounds a little silly to me.

Anyway, if this album/score/rerecording/edition/WHATEVER does not deserve a 5 STAR rating, what does?
