"I vividly recall seeing the 1984 movie Dune with my high school friends at the cinema during its original theatrical release. A few years later, I obtained a copy of this soundtrack from a friend on audio cassette. At the time (1986) our games group was playing the Dune strategy board game based on the book, and so we came to understand all about the world of Arrakis (=Dune) and appreciated how well the dramatic music here fitted the movie. It remains in my top three music soundtracks to movies of all time . The fight scenes have ominous conflict music, the crucial moments of Paul Atreides's testing such as the Box and the Water Of Life have suitably cathartic backing , and there is a memorable closing theme called Take My Hand. The psychotic, scheming "floating fat man" Baron Harkonnen is represented with a few villainous lines of dialogue, while the standout Prophecy Theme and Dune Desert Theme have always remained with me as classic tunes. Dune is a great story because it is about the fulfilment of prophecy and the very difficult struggles caused by facing one's destiny. It needed inspiring, epic-sounding music, and thankfully it received it . Highly Recommended."
