A Masterpiece from a Master
Justin Lowry | Urbana, IL United States | 06/29/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As a musical composition, even outside the film, the "Jurassic Park" soundtrack may be the best film score ever made. John Williams finds a magical tone like his "E.T" and "Hook", mixes in the awe of his "Close Encounters", and amplifies the effect to create a truly great collection of themes and cues. The main theme is classic and gives a real sense of awe and wonder (much like the vision of dinosaurs bring in the film). This theme is enough to make the score great all by itself, but the "Jurassic Park" score contains a variety of small themes, each original and excellent in its own right. The first tense, action cue, "Incident At Isla Nublar" is a masterpiece for suspense and drama. Other cues, like "Hatching Baby Raptor" and "My Friend, The Brachiosaurus" introduce small, but beautiful themes that stand on their own.Some film scores work well within their movies, but do not make easy listening in the living room. The "Jurassic Park" soundtrack, with the exceptions of some brief action cues, provides all-around great music for any mood. Place this powerful piece next to your favorite classical CDs."
Really Something...

"Who can ever forget that first majestic shot of a helicopter soaring into the interior of the lush tropical island which contained Jurassic Park? The image itself was impressive, but it was John William's breathtaking music which really drove the experience home for me. The new Star Wars film notwithstanding, this is probably Williams' best-known score of the 90s, and it ranks right up there with his all-time greats. Every track on this album contributes something new, from the mysterious opening "Incident on Isla Nublar" to the tense, tightly-written action cues which dominate the second half. The frightening four-note motif of the raptors is particularly effective, and the majestic main theme, which subtly merges orchestra and choir, is one for the books. Williams' has the amazing ability to create a different musical signature for every major film he scores, and Jurassic Park is one of his most artful."
