Goldsmith wasnt coming,wt did you think?   Wednesday, May 9, 2001 (1:16 a.m.) 

When You heard that Jerry Goldsmith wasn`t coming back to score The Mummy Returns,what did you think about it?

Well,I am a huge movie fan,a huge film music fan and a huge Jerry Goldsmith and Alan Silvestri fan.I love the The Mummy movies(The Mummy and The Mummy Returns)and Goldsmith`s music in the 1st Mummy.When I heard a sequel was being made I admit that I was sad to hear Goldsmith wasn`t going to score it.But when I heard Silvestri was going to score I was like all right,we`re not in trouble no more.But I admit that I didn`t know how Silvestri would do it.I know he did Predator and Back To The Future but I just couldn`t think how in the world he would score it.Well I found out MY answer and I am not one bit disapointed.Ofcorse Goldsmith`s themes isn`t here but Silvestri has his own!
In MY opinion both scores are great,neither is greater than the other but their some of the greatest music a person will ever hear!

I completely argree with what you said. I was, however sad to hear that Silverstri would not uses Rick's theme from the original. I was hoping he would somehow lift it and add a new spin on it. But he did make up for it with a great brass theme of his own for Rick. It is used the best in track 9. The music from both is neither greater than the other.

I couldn't have stated it better. Bothe get ***** in my book!
