"I had no idea that this soundtrack was available on CD. Once I did, I searched everywhere and alas, found one being sold independently on Amazon.com I have always enjoyed listening to the music while viewing this movie. As with most movies, the music is a big part of the films success. I cannot recall if Clash of the Titans was viewed as a movie of such proportions however, the music ranks right up there with the success of Star Wars, Superman, ET, etc. and will give the listener a wonderful listening experience."
I may be the first to review the ALBUM!

"I purchased the LP when the film was first released. While the music is not as stirring as Bernard Herrmann's work on the three earlier Ray Harryhausen works ("7th Voyage of Sinbad", "Mysterious Island", "Jason and the Argonauts"), Rosenthal's music is adequate for the mythological the story of Perseus and his rescue of a doomed princess. The best cut is the beautiful "The Lovers", a melody close in structure to more familiar themes by Williams in the Star Wars trilogy.An added bonus is the final cut, featuring Lawrence Oliver's voiceover. To hear one of the greats of film and stage is to be royally blessed.The only complaint is the album's brevity (37:40), but it was made when soundtrack albums were limited to a select audience and not as popular as the genre has today become. Also, a soundtrack album's success is based on the popularity of the movie.And "Clash of the Titans" was a marginal success for MGM. Since that time however, the movie has gained somewhat "cult status" which might spur interest in the score."
Wonderful movie music!

"The Clash of the Titans music is all about the heroic expoilts of the central character Perseus. It's basically hero theme music similar to Superman, the Movie. Like the music in Superman, the orchestra takes us to the utmost of heights, especially in track 6, Pegasus, the scene in which Perseus takes his first ride on the mythical winged horse. The score also features a beautiful love theme for Andromeda (a la Lois Lane) and a bright, noble, yet, comic theme for Bubo the Owl. The Heroic main theme recurs frequently through the score to punctuate Perseus daring exploits. The music for the villans was well writen, nothing spectacular, but well done for the movie. I highly reccommend this CD."
