Great CD (Rion Carter | 05/27/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Great CD! Let's start at the very beginning, a very good place to start. (Ha ha ha!)TRACK 1: Good song; Good rhythm; Sums up the whole CD; Beginning used at the very first scenes of Back to the Future 3 (the scene where 1955 Doc sees 1985 Marty and faints). TRACK 2: Good song; Second part of the song used during the train scenes. TRACK 3: Good song; Slow at times; Song used when Marty first views Hill Valley in 1885 (now like the wild west). TRACK 4: Good, quick song; Used during the hanging scene; I picture Marty getting dragged on and on by Biff and the other bad guys. TRACK 5: Ok song; Extremely slow; Not adventurous and thrilling like the rest; It still paints pictures of Doc in love with Clara in my mind. TRACK 6: Great, short, song with an excellent rhythm and beat; Song used when Marty is escaping from the Indians. TRACK 7: Ok song; A little slow and boring; Song used when Doc fails while desperately trying to explain to Clara that he is leaving her; TRACK 8: Great song; Used when Doc comes back in the train with Clara, Jules, and Verne; I picture the train blasting away; I see poor Marty saying goodbye. TRACK 9: Good song; Third and last part of the song used during the train scenes; Gets a little boring over time; Still good. TRACK 10: Ok song; Used when Marty and Doc find the gravestone with Doc's death outside the Mine Shaft. TRACK 11: Strange song; Percussion and drums; All I can do is imagine Marty with Buford "Mad Dog" Tannen in the showdown; Marty-"I thought we could talk." Buford-"Thought wrong, kid!" (Then he shoots Marty.) TRACK 12: Very short; Song used when Doc rescues Clara from the Ravine. TRACK 13: Ok song; Not great; Slow and boring; Scene with Doc and Clara looking up at the sky. TRACK 14: Great song; Song used when the DeLorean is out of gas, so Doc and Marty pull it by horses; Great picture in my mind. TRACK 15: Ok song; Song used when the bartender is making the wake-up juice. TRACK 16: Good song; First part of the song used in the train scenes. TRACK 17: EXCELLENT SONG; Doubleback is the best song on this CD; ZZ Top plays it; Song used at the Hill Valley Festival where the clock starts ticking for the first time; Great song with excellent pictures painted in my mind. TRACK 18: Great song; Sums up the whole CD in a different way; Great song to end a great soundtrack of a great movie.Hope you buy this CD! It's wonderful! You'll love it!"
Another good Silvistri work but not as great as the previous

"The final soundtrack for the Back to the Future Trilogy doesn't disapoint and at the same time it lacks the familiarity we have come to love with the Back to the Future music.

The third sequal takes on a whole old west flavor as our heroes wind up in 1885 and take on the founding of the town of Hill valley as well as other old west situations like gun fights, horses and huge trains. The soundtrack and score that Alan puts together is pretty good overall and the quality we have come to expect. It does seem very out of place though when compared to the two previous soundtracks of the movie series.

Something to note of this sound track, unlike the other two, the songs are in a weird random order. They aren't in the order that the songs show up in the movie. The last part of the train shows up before the other two for example. Why they did this I don't know but it can make things confusing when you are listening and trying to place where it was in the movie . I would definitely say get this but just to complete the set and for a differnet flavor of what Alan Silvistri can accomplish. Its not great like the other two are , but it is pretty good still.

The familiar Back to the Future theme is missing and only shows up at undertones in the score if at all. The music also takes on a totaly new sound to it , an old west type of feel with a lot of horns and classic sounds to it. Again not the best of approaches as the previous Back to the Future films never altered the music to fit the time period and there was really no need to do that here as well. A good mixture of old with new would have worked nicely, but with that all said the soundtrack is still enjoyable and I would recomend this as well as the other two movie soundtracks as they are a real thril to listen to everytime , even if the music will seem unfamiliar compared to the other two albums.

Some songs to take note of are the Train scores. All done well and will sorta remind you of the long climax at the end of the first movie that both had similar situations going on (Having to get back to the future by some means of luck and good planning) . Other songs like Indians and We are Out of Gas are intersting western sounding scores that are short but do have a Back to the Future feel to them and work nicely. Some songs are just not as powerful as his previous ones were and compared to the other 2 albums can even seem out of place.

Bottom line is: Its good for originality but not for continuity for the trilogy but still a good album on its own right. Just not a great one like the other two were."
