Its a yery good score...   Wednesday, July 25, 2007 (4:45 a.m.) 

... but the Varese-Album is a disappointment in several respects.
First, less than half of the music actually featured in the film, appears on the album. Secondly, the music included is badly out of order.

Gone missing are some exellent cues, including a dramatic piece written for a central scene where the Hoffman-Character confronts the Stone-Character, a short but bombastic appearence of the Main Theme played during the scene where the Jackson-Character enters the Sphere and several other cues of tense and dissonant underscore. Also gone is the hopeful and majestic last cue for the final scene. On the CD there are several notable and important action-cues and 'The Gift' which was played three times during the film.

But its not a well rounded album. It has no real conclusion, no finale, no (excuse me the pun) depth... thats why I'm waiting for a bootleg which will feature all the powerful, thoughtful and beautiful music from the film.

Music as heard on Album: ** 1/2 (*** for some Tracks, ** for others)
Music as heard in the Film: ****

This score is screaming for an expanded release... unfortunately, that'll be probably have to wait another 10-20 years, at which point Intrada, Varese, or some other company can release it as a complete edition of a forgotten score... much like most Bruce Broughton scores get treated.

Maybe I'm holding out too much hope, but I really want a complete release of this score. As much as I love poring over the album as exists, I desperately want the rest of the score available on album.

Hopefully sooner than later.
