"Randy Edelman's creepy, very original score is wonderful. This is a suprise given the movie it was written for, but Edelman's knack for creating just the right music for a scene and whose music gives you a real emotion for the situation is what makes him great. Okay, so track 1 is cheese cheese cheese and more cheese. There are some cool amazonian sound effects that are built right into the track and make it very enjoyable. There's an oddly placed electric guitar solo when the sailor is confronted by the snake, and it somehow delivers very well. Track 2 is a good omen to the action music that devours almost the entire CD. 3 is more of the same, and contains a really cool element: during a rapid, breakneck chase piece, a bizarre but ultimatly cool "cookoo" sound effect starts ringing, making it sound like someone is beating the hell out of a clock during recording. Track 4, the best on the disk and (gasp) probably one of the better and more emotional tracks I own, is the only really serious one on the disk. Although not featured in the film, it does make it's debut during the final roll of the credits. The piece involves the film's main theme: a beautifully interwoven orchestra number, and escalates to a peak of such high intensity it makes me get goosebumps. During this peak, a deafning roar of an Amazon flute blares, adding that whimsical element to the piece. 5, and 6 are both tense, quiet music. 7 is the piece that includes the upbeat "leaving port" motif and forshadows of things to come by playing the main theme in an ominous style. 8 is another action piece, while 9 is a pretty piano solo of the main theme (reminicent of James Horner and "The Portrait" for TITANIC). 10 and 11 work together to finish off the album by presenting loud, obnoxious music and soft, scary themes. ANACONDA is an extremely well made soundtrack, however may not be for everyone's taste. There is definatly camp in the synthesized drums and beat keepers Edelman uses, but ANACONDA is above all a fun, laid back approach to soundtracks. You should check it out. I bet you'll be suprised."
