Yeah when I heard that Don Davis was doing the music for Jurassic Park 3 I was like, What!?!, but the same thing that happened with "The Mummy Returrns" soundtrack happened with this one, I got it and was very pleased with the results. Don Davis did a good job adapting John Williams's work to his own and it sounds good like in "Cooper's Last Stand". "Tiny Pecking Pteranodons" and "Billy Oblivion" have got cool action meteral that is as good as "The Matrix". In short this soundtrack is a fine companion to the other two Jurassic Park soundtracks, thats why I got Jurassic Park 3 with the other 2 JP CDS in my John Williams section.

Don Davis / Alan Silvestri   Monday, September 24, 2001 (6:23 a.m.) 

I totally agree with you Tom. I was very disappointed when I heard Williams wouldn't score JPIII, and I was even more disappointed when I read the reviews on the discussion board. But when I saw the movie I thougt the music was quite ok, and when I bought the CD I was very surprised! Davis wrote a fascinating action score, the complexity of which is to par with a Williams. The integration of the old themes is well done, and the overall result is exiting fun and refreshing!
About The Mummy Returns I wanted to say that I, unlike you, did expect a good score. Alan Sivestri is one of the most underrated composers in Hollywood (Hans Zimmer one of the most overrated ), his talent is even more flexible than that of David Arnold, and his use of orchestra and choir is just amazing. I think Silvestri would have done an even better job than Davis did for JPIII. Maybe an idea for JPIV ?
By the way, The Mummy III (The Scorpion King) by John Debney will be great too, I bet.

Yep... I feel bad that Williams didn't score it, however Davis is a great composer and can write music that is thick and complex beyond most scores. I wish he would have introduced some more themes that were 'his.' But, I also understand there really wasn't any room

BTW: The Matrix is one of my favorite scores, his post-modern techniques to underscore every detail was fasinating.

I have the Mummy Returns but haven't paid close enough attention to the score... I will if my siblings ever turn it on again ;P
