As mentioned on the home page, Filmtracks will shortly begin debuting a series of reviews aimed at filling most of the notable holes in the site's coverage of popular scores of the past 30 years. These scores were chosen for review based upon the cumulative statistical logs of Filmtracks' internal search engine queries. In other words, these were the scores that the most Filmtracks visitors were looking for since 1997 but never found. They will likely number between 35 and 40 in quantity and be revealed in random order over the next few months.

Basically, there are 90+ soundtracks that have been searched for a minimum of 2,000 times and haven't yet been covered at Filmtracks. Of those, 30 are represented by films for which there was no substantial score (Top Gun, Dirty Dancing) or films that had an inconsequential score compared to song usage (Old School, American Pie, White Chicks). These will not be reviewed at this time despite the fact that some of them have been released on short composer promos or bootlegs. Perhaps they will be revisited at a later date.

Of the remaining 54 scores that I could conceivably cover, 13 are represented only by bootlegs (such as Back to the Future, the #2 most requested score overall). A few of these may be reviewed. Of the remaining 41 scores, about 35 will be featured. Look for these items to debut once every few days, likely mixed in with reviews of brand new items throughout the rest of the year.

Among the ten scores in this round of reviews that I've already finished, the ratings range from five stars all the way down to a FRISBEE, so enjoy these popular and controversial pieces of modern film music history!
