Umissable but strange selection.

Over 4 discs and 84 tracks this box set presents the signature themes for 84 different movies. They have a range between classical, rare, contemporary, post-modern and a couple have no business being included (why is xXx on this???). Where else can you find cues from Nightmare on Elm Street, Ice Age, Back To The Future and Xena: Warrior Princess all in the same collection.

I never knew Varese Sarabande had so many movies in their catalogue. But I'm upset there are no Friday The 13th cues or tracks from more popular movies. I mean I'm a movie buff and I've never heard of The Man From Snowy River or seen The Milagro Beanfield War. But if you love movies then you won't find a more cosy collection of themes than on this CD (unless you buy Volume 2, which actually looks a little bit better).

Like I said, Varese Sarabande own the soundtrack rights to loads of movies so I'm kind of upset that there a few too many generic tracks here. I personally don't find anything special about Alan Silvestri's score to Father of the Bride or George Fenton's You've got mail. There are plenty of scores out there that deserved attention in a box set like this but don't let the presence of a few dull tracks put you off buying this. Keep a lookout for Volume 2 also.

Huge.
If you are a fan of listening to film music, this is it. A excellent collection of modern film compositions and totally affordable as well. One problem though, where is the TERMINATOR theme by BRAD FIDEL? The soundtrack from T2 was released by VARESE SARABANDE, so they should've thrown that in the mix. Oh, well, a great collection of scores and themes nonetheless.

" this is a perfect ten ~ Varese 25th Celebration"
Anyone who has ever read my reviews knows that I'm a complete "film-score-buff" nut. Varese Records has come up with the best of the best in the category of soundtracks/scores. Just take a peek with their latest release "Varese Sarabande:A 25th Anniversary Celebration", featuring a 4-CD-Set with inclusive 84 cues of unforgettable scores from the leading composers of the past Century. The quality of sound, texture and substance is a film scores collectors dream. Each and every track is a self culture unto its own, bringing countries, worlds and universes under one umbrella. This is one not to be missed, so many highlights and stand outs ~ from one spectrum of comedy, romance, drama, suspense, action, adventure...to the other of westerns, horror, war, thrillers and classics that linger from decade to decade.

Much like its predecessor "In Session:A Film Music Celebration" (Varese Records 302-066-225-2), takes the listener on a musical journey that will live on as long as there is the Cinema and Music. This compilation is aimed at the "serious collector of Music", make no mistake about it. Varese and producer Robert Townson hit the mark, a perfect bulleye...not to mention the price is right ~ gotta love it!

Total:4-CD-Set ~ Varese Records 302-066-460-2 ~ (4/22/2003)
