Goldsmith Blasts Away With Magnificent Soundtrack
Michael Daly | Wakefield, MA USA | 04/10/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Jerry Goldsmith reached his apex in scoring with the music for First Blood, the first of the Rambo films. Goldsmith uses a very large orchestra to capture the ever-chaning moods of the film, and does so with a superb mix of bombast and tenderness.The main theme is rendered in the opening and closing numbers, Homecoming and It's A Long Road. The open captures Rambo's sense of hope at meeting a long-lost comrade. The close summarizes the final purge of bitterness from Rambo.In between are many stellar numbers. Goldsmith exacts tremendous virtuoso playing, at times mixing glissandi, multinote intervals, and every other classification of music one can think off to extract the maximum power. It can be breathtaking listening to such cues as the musical chaos of The Tunnel, the savagery of The Razor, and the sheer terror of Hanging On and Over The Cliff.And then there is tenderness, drawn from the opening half of Mountain Hunt, and from My Town - capturing the sense of failure of Rambo having found that his close friend has died.Soundtracks don't get better than First Blood. It is a true musical classic."
Goldsmith is a God!

"This soundtrack (although too short) is too cool for words. I was so much in love with this when I first bought it that I never thot about buying the score to the sequel because I was too busy listening to this over and over. The main theme is empathic and patriotic and makes us feel what Rambo is feeling, which is sadness and despair. The action tracks are red hot. "The Razor" is amazing and builds up to a powerful and pressurized explosion of fury as Rambo lays waste to the cops. Other notable tracks are "Over the Cliff" and "Hanging On". This is a CD filled (but not full enough) of action and adventure that will surely excite you. This is very much deserving of 5 stars."
