I am a huge fan of Mr. Silvestri's work, going back to the days of Back To The Future(which just happens to be on my Top Ten Themes of All Times list) and his amazing The Abyss. But I am, however, disapointed that he took over in the position if scoring for Mr. Goldsmith, who did a great job for The Mummy in 99. I haven't bought the score yet (not even sure if I'll go see the movie because they have the stupid wrestler in it), but I would like to try the score sice it got a better review than Goldsmith's The Mummy.
Before I do, can anyone tell me if Rick O'Connol's(forgive my spelling) theme from the orginal score will still be in The Mummy Returns? It's first herd in full in track 5 of The Mummy. It's such a cool theme and I hope Mr. Silverstri has brought it back from the grave!
