Comments about the soundtrack for The Mummy Returns (Alan Silvestri)

I'll be honest.

I'm going to be honest. When I saw that the film was going to be scored by Alan Silvestri instead of the legendary Goldsmith, I thought what I was going to think of all sequels: CRAP!

However, I did decide to give seeing the movie a chance, and I'll pay attention to the score.

There's something else, too. I never was very fond of Silvestri, especially in the 80's. I saw Back to the Future plenty of times, and when I saw The Abyss and the Predator movies, all I heard was that quircky music from Back to the Future (of course, The Abyss did have a good theme, but the rest of it?) and immediately labelled the composer as a lame plagiarist.

Anyway, when I saw that first fight scene in the mansion, I honestly couldn't wait for the movie itself to be over, so I could race to the store and buy the soundtrack. That's how much Mr. Silvestri has surpassed my expectations. This CD is now one of my favorites!
