This one, in my humble opinion, actually out-does "The Towering Inferno" in the long run. "Inferno" may be more thematically pleasant, but it's considerably more dated, "The Swarm" has a timeless feel and is brilliantly written. For those of you who are on the fence about it, it's quite similar to "Capricorn One" in a lot of ways, and it's presentation on the Prometheus album is fabulous. I just bought a copy for $25 from Intrada.com, hopefully they've still got a few of them left when you read this. But really, it's Goldsmith in his prime, one of those rare scores that can be both appreciated and enjoyed on the highest levels. One of the best action scores of the 70's I've heard. *****
