I guess there is noone reading this anymore, but waht the hell.
I basicly must say this is the best score I've ever heard. And that is quite subjective:
I actually never heard ANY music when I was a child, popmusic was just to boring for me. One day (when I got older/ at the age of 14) I got TheMummy on DVD from a friend and I loved the opening sequnece. I couldn't really tell what it was, it was just a stellar moment. I watched it over and over again until I realized: It is the Music!
So I decided to buy the soundtrack just because of track 1. And for the longest time I never heared anything else. After a while I had changing favorite titles on the CD.
This was the main reason why I got intrested in moive music. And till today I think it's the best ever music I heared in my life. The only thing that could come close (very close indeed) for bringing be pure joy for about an hour is Mulan (full score) , which I bought on ebay for 60$ and is the pride of my Jerry Goldsmith collection.
(BTW, I'm not a completist, I just buy those I come across with somehow, lately the FILMTTRACKS reviews)
