Editorial Reviews

If you were to climb into that DeLorean and return to 1985, you'd make a disturbing discovery-only the main theme from the first Back to the Future was released! Now, along with a suite from Part II and the Journey West theme from Part III , you can hear Alan Silvestri's themes from the skateboard chase, the clock tower scene and more on this world premiere of the original Back to the Future score!

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth a try, but don't get too excited May 6, 2000
Format:Audio CD
If you want original quality, get the original scores. I would also have liked to get a boxed set of the original soundtracks. This CD is only for those who want to listen to alternate versions of certain music. Tracks 16 to 19 are all genuine from the Part III original score. I have always loved to hear the Part II theme, but the version on the Trilogy CD does not compare at all. The tempo is slower, and the instruments and tone are totally different...nothing like the original. The "Burn The Book" track is also altered. They took the drums out of the beginning, which changed the music completely. The Part I theme is also different. This version uses fewer instruments than the original. Even though you get certain Part I tracks that weren't on the original score, like the famous "Skateboard Chase," you can bet that Debney and RSNO changed the music in some way. I think fans shoud get this only if they want to hear music not found anywhere else (like the "Skateboard Chase").

1.0 out of 5 stars disappointing March 23, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This recording sounds terrible, first of all. There is nothing wrong with the actual sound quality; the fidelity of the recording is fine. However, Varese's "concert hall" acoustic style of recording is getting on my nerves. This recording has none of the vibrancy or immediacy of a real film score recording. I dare you to listen to the original MCA soundtrack and tell me this recording compares. The snare drums are consistently muted throughout and in certain sections are dropped from the music! This happens in Clocktower pt. 1 and in Lone Pine Mall '85. The piano parts are all way too soft. Debney's interpretation and the RSNO performance is totally inferior. They did not do the original score justice. Their take on Clocktower pt. 1 is atrocious. The tempos are all too slow. However, in spite of all these problems, it's better than nothing. Clocktower pt. 2 actually sounds pretty decent. I am glad to finally have that on CD. There are a few other worthy cues too, such as "Doc Returns" and the music from BTTF 2.

1.0 out of 5 stars REASONS NOT TO GO BACK TO THIS FUTURE... August 4, 2005
Format:Audio CD
First off I should point out the fact that not only am I a HUGE film score buff but I am also a trained and professional classical musician. I have attended both The Juilliard School and the Indiana University School of Music and have worked as a professional musician for the past nine years. I wanted to share this information so people would know that I am not just "talking ignorantly" but, in point of fact, I actually know EXACTLY what I am talking about.

Having said that, let me now say that I am an avid fan of the scores from all three "Back to the Future" films and quite an admirer of Alan Silvestri's body of work. I also have nothing but great respect for John Debney and his intentions behind this project. But, with that respect being paid, I must now say that this CD is one to avoid if you are a true conesseiur of the score from "Back to the Future" or if you are seeking a TRUE representation of the film's actual score.

Why do I say this? Well, I'll tell you. First of all, most of the recordings on this CD of tracks from "BTTF Part 1" are WAY too slow. Also, a lot of the tracks have been altered from their original representaion and recording. For example, in "The Skateboard Chase" the beginning of the track and end of the track have been altered. Certain notes by the brass have been left out of the intro. including a muted trumpet playing the famous first three notes of Marty's theme (the main "BTTF" theme motif). Also, the end has been altered as well to not include the cacaphonous diminished chord played in the film as Biff's car hits the manure truck.

Other flaws? Well, certain notes are not played in the right spots in the recording of "The Clocktower Part II".

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining? YES! Flawless? Not exactly ... January 4, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I've always loved the instrumental music to Back to the Future, especially the music from the first Back to the Future movie. It was unfortunate that the original CD for BttF pt. I had only 2 instrumental tracks, but this Back to the Future Trilogy CD undoubtedly made up for it. Now, it's complete with the full theme, the thrilling skateboard chase, the climactic clock tower music, the highlights from Back to the Future II (although I would have liked to hear the tunnel chase), and an appropriate "medley" used in the Ride. I got this for Christmas and haven't been able to turn it off ...
Everthing has its share of problems, and luckily this has fewer problems than some. What I can pick out are : There should have been more of BttF II and III, BttF III COULD have been re-recorded, and, as it's already been pointed out, the microphone DOES seem to be a little distant.
Nevertheless, I highly recommend this soundtrack to any fan of Back to the Future or just people who like instrumental music.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for all BTTF fans!! December 31, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I have been a huge fan of the trilogy since it came out in 1985 and now with the release of the DVD set of all 3 movies, hopefuly fans will realize how great and powerful the music of all 3 movies were. The movie was great but Alan Silvestri's masterful score really brings the movies home.
The Trilogy set itself is a total instrumental work redone by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and includes most of the songs that weren't on the BTTF 1 and BTTF 2 soundtracks (That I recomend people to buy as well including this one). The first BTTF album was more of a real song album and only 2 of the songs that Alan did for the movie were on it. This CD though gives us all the songs we always wanted including the Skateboard chase (similar to the Hoverboard chase on Pt 2 album) and the complete Clocktower climax at the end of the movie, which alone makes it a great buy to get this album. Also it has the Old West preview music that you hear at the end of Part 2 where they show you the coming attractions to the next movie. That wasn't on the part 2 album.
Unfortunatly though this album isn't PERFECT. It does have a few flaws. The orchestra doing this album isn't as polished and powerful sounding as the Outatime Orchestra that does the music for the original 3 albums. Notes seem to be distant at times and when you play the similar theme on the other album or as you heard it in the movie there is a very noticible difference. Also none of the songs from Part 3 were redone . They just took the songs off the existing Part 3 album which is alright as they picked some good ones. (Point of No Return and End Credits are some of the best from the Pt 3 soundtrack in my opinion). Another down side is that they leave off some really great songs from part 2 like the tunnel chase and Hoverboard chase.
