When I was 6, I saw Back to the Future for the first time. After that, I came to love special effects and film itself. Soon after, my parents bought a CD player (when they were brand new), and one of the first titles they purchased was this one. The first major track you hear is "Power of Love," by Huey Lewis and the News. The track was a billboard charter at the time of the film, and it's rhythm and beat are still catchy. Along with this song are "Time Bomb Town," "Heaven is one step away," and "Back in Time." But what really energized me was the "Back to the Future Overture," capturing the Alan Silvestri theme that is probably as well known as the Star Wars and Indiana Jones themes. The final 5-6 tracks contain music from the 50's, as well as a short but sweet audio of Johnny B. Goode. I rrecommend this CD, as well as Footloose, for that great mid-80's feel. You just can't get good movie soundtracks like this anymore.

Like all the other fans who reviewed this soundtrack, I too found it to be somewhat disappointing. Personally, I wish it had included "Mister Sandman." I can't understand why ANY song that was used the movie would be excluded from the soundtrack, especially if it's one of the more likable ones. I don't care for song #2 "Time Bomb Town" or song #7, "The Wallflower" (Dance with me Henry), but all the rest are fine.

On the other hand, it is great to hear songs like "The Power of Love" and "Back in Time" in full length...those songs totally ROCK!!!! I love "Earth Angel" as well, but was disappointed to hear that the version on the soundtrack does not include the sound of guitar strings (which we heard Marty playing thoughout the whole song in the movie). "Johnny B. Goode" is another favorite of mine and I found it satisfying to hear it in full length on the album, though it did not include Marty's improvised hard rock guitar solo (one of the highlights of the movie, yes, but if it was included in the soundtrack, it would hinder our chances of hearing the whole song).

All right, I admit it... my main interest in picking this up was not for the instrumentals. Like most folks, I wanted it for the two cuts by Huey Lewis and The News, 'The Power of Love' and 'Back In Time'. Yes, I really dug on those 80's bubble-gum/retro pop tracks back in my middle school days, and I needed to complete my HL&N collection, okay? And don't laugh, cuz you bought this OST back then for the exact same reason, and don't you deny it! Besides, with the boom of the 80's nostalgia market nowadays- with TransFormers, G.I. Joe, Masters of the Universe, Voltron and John Hughes-directed movies being just a few examples- this soundtrack will be stylin' once again in no time!
But even though my reasons for owning this recording was to add to my library of Reagan-era pop, it did introduce me to the world of symphonic music. Up until that time, I never cared much for symphony, be it classical or modern. Alan Silvestri's efforts added just the right tone to the movies' many tense and exciting moments. His BTTF overture got me curious enough to check out the works of other great notable soundtrack composers, including Jerry Goldsmith (Star Trek I, V, VIII & IX, Total Recall), James Horner (Star Trek II, III), Basil Poledouris (RoboCop, Starship Troopers, Conan) and especially John Williams (The Star Wars & Indiana Jones Trilogies, Superman The Movie). Of course it also helps that I'm a big fan of the films that these composers wrote music for. Ironically, my interests in other Silvestri pieces is minimal. I don't even know any other movies he's scored tunes for aside from the BTTF trilogy!
This soundtrack also introduced me to Eric Clapton. Sadly, I was less than impressed by his '(Heaven is) One Step Away'.

When I first saw the Back to the Future movie, I was simply amazed. What really got me excited was the "to be continued..." at the end. I could not wait for the second movie to come out. Anyway, I bought the soundtrack to the movie and re-lived the movie all over again.
All of the songs were good, but I fell in love with the songs that the orchestra played. I listen to the CD in my car and it really makes me want to have a lead foot until I reach 88 MPH. I know it sounds stupid, but this music can get you excited. The score for this movie was very well done. If you have bought the soundtrack to "Superman", you know how excited you can get.
What I thought was strange was one of the songs. Do you remember when Marty comes back from the past and can't get the car started? The song that was being played on the radio where that homeless person was sleeping on the bench is on the CD. If you ask me, tracks 3 and 6 are the best.
This CD is worth your money.

Great soundtrack and overall Alan Silvestri's best. Power of love and back in time some of Huey's best. It really reminds you of how great the film is. Forgot the soundtracks for 2 and 3 stick with this one.

We could say : it is all right. It is interesting but not as good as the movie...Bla...Bla...Bla...But the fact is one is not the other: the brilliance of the movie was a story well portayed by Michael J. Fox and christopher LLoyd and a fabulous script.

The music has its brilliance by a cool mixture of rock, movie score and songs that reminds you of the movie BUT also feeds some feelings of hope or fun when you day might start the hard way..Now...Isn't that cool enough when a soundtrack does that?
