Great Score To An Underrated Movie
Erik North | San Gabriel, CA USA | 08/10/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Released at the end of 1984, "2010" is a terribly underrated follow-up to Stanley Kubrick's 1968 sci-fi masterpiece 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. Everything about this film says that it is in bad need of reassessing.And that goes for the music score as well. Beginning with Police lead guitarist Andy Summers' version of Richard Strauss' "Also Sprach Zarathustra", this recording then moves on to the eerie, synthesizer-dominated music score composed by David Shire, who also worked on films like THE TAKING OF PELHAM ONE-TWO-THREE and parts of SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER. If this original score doesn't necessarily bear comparison to the uses of classical music applied by Kubrick in his landmark movie, it nevertheless shows that Shire is one of our most underrated film score composers. His "New Worlds" and "Nova" cues are some of the most inventive uses of synthesizers put into a movie's music soundtrack since A CLOCKWORK ORANGEThis combination of orchestral, electronic, and synthesizer motifs would not be matched in a film score until John Williams did it for A.I.: ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE in (ironically enough!) 2001. Therefore, the "2010" soundtrack is well worth seeking out!"
