CD Reviews

The end is pretty good

"Buy this CD for tracks 11, 12, and 13. The finale of the score is amazing, with a powerful build-up of the choir and orchestra. The rest of the score, sadly, is a waste of time. Track 1 rips off the main title to James Horner's BRAINSTORM, before settling into a repetitive percussion motif. Tracks 3 and 7 are merely recycled from Silvestri's PREDATOR score. Everything else is simply synth droning and boring "atmosphere" music. If it weren't for the last ten minutes of the score, I would sell this disc."
Not for everyone

"This is just my style of soundtrack. Before the movie was over, I already wanted the score. Some people may not like it because there are parts that may be more sound effects than melodic material, but it creates a great atmospheric soundscape for the unknown regions of the abyss. There is , however, a very elegant and orchestral/choral piece that powerfully builds up to a climax of cosmic proportions. If you like this you may also like the Alien 3 and Contact soundtracks."
Loved I bought the score

"First and foremost, I thought the Abyss was a great movie, visually stunning. Another aspect of this fantastic movie was the score, which made certain scenes that much better. At times, the score was better than a scene. Alan Silvestri is a maestro, and this was one of his better works. I strongly recommend it to people who are fans of movie scores. This is one purchase you must have.
