5.0 out of 5 stars Great Music by James Newton Howard May 3, 2000
Format:Audio CD
James Newton Howard's Dinosaur soundtrack is one of his finest works. The music is so good, that Disney even used it in the movie trailers (most trailers use music from other films which is why you don't hear most trailer songs on the soundtrack). The only drawback to the CD, which is minor, is that the titles contain spoilers for the movie. And since the soundtrack is released three weeks before the film, it's easy to know what will happen. The CD contains 16 scores and no songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Amazing June 20, 2000
By Soergel
Format:Audio CD
How a score this fully developed, robust and exciting can be produced in Hollywood of this day and age is really a miracle.
James Newton Howard is one of the best out there right now, and this is him at the top of his game. Worth buying just for the five minutes of score we all heard last year in DINOSAUR's extended, no-dialogue preview. But that was literally just the beginning.
If you enjoyed Hans Zimmer's LION KING or POWER OF ONE, you will most definitely enjoy this CD... a thrilling mix of prehistoric rhythms and full-blooded orchestral writing, with hands down one of the most exciting action themes of recent memory (heard in full glory halfway through track 7, "Raptors / Stand Together").
A major work in film scoring from a composer who keeps getting better and better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Missing Track October 9, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Note to buyers:

Some versions of this soundtrack contain an extra track called: "Can Somebody Tell Me Who I Am" performed by Orange Blue which is usually track number 2, but does not appear in every version. This track is used at the very end of the film, and is actually orchestrated quite nicely. It is definately something to look for when buying!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Breathtaking score.... simply stunning! July 8, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Simply put this is the most wonderful score I have heard since "The Hunchback of Notre Dame", another Disney movie. I may be a huge Disney fan but I won't hesitate to admit when their work is less than stellar. For example Mulan had a wonderful score but weak songs, and Hercules had cute songs, but a weak score. Anyway, this score is simply brilliant. Although there is not a single track on here with lyrics it does not matter. This is one of the most soaring awe inspiring, uplifting, sometimes even spooky (as in Raptors/Stand together) scores ever. I have not heard much of Howard's other work, save the sixth sense, but if it's anywhere near as good as this it's worth checking out. The best track by far is across the desert. A piece with a complex and pulsating rhythm that you simply canot get out of your head. Other highlights include the upbeat "The Courtship," The touching "Inner Sanctum" and the majestic "The egg Travels." Many of the tracks are backed by vocals performed by Lebo M. who supplied background cvocals in The Lion King. This really adds to it. If this score does not win best original score... WIN! I will completely lose faith in the academy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soaring and Stirring Music May 15, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the best instrumental soundtracks that I have ever heard. Period.
The music in this soundtrack begins with a wonderfully stirring anthem, and never lets up from there. The music is emotionally satisfying without being sappy or overdone.
One of the best parts of this album is the inclusion of African Rythms and African Background songs by the wondful Lebo M. Here the composers achieve a synthesis of the classical instrumental sound with the rich African Harmonies, that evokes such a powerful sound that it becomes reminiscent of some of the most beloved classical music.
This score truly proves that there are wonderful American composers who can compose on a level with the greats of the classical era. This score can stand on its own, and is worthy to be performed by the best orchestras in the world. Thank-you James Newton Howard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! JNH in adventure mode! August 3, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I read a lot of reviews, and whenever I saw one for a score composed by James Newton Howard, the reviewers almost always refered back to Dinosaur as one of his key scores. Being a JNH fan, I couldn't pass this one up.
The the themes are very good, exciting, and for the most part original (that first part of the theme first heard in "The Egg Travels" is exactly like the first part for the main theme for Jerry Goldsmith's The 13th Warrior). Along with Hans Zimmer's The Lion King and Jerry Goldsmith's Mulan, this is one of the best scores to a Disney movie ever. It could almost be mistaken for a dramatic score, although there are some slightly "kiddish" moments in it, and I think he uses the African vocals just a bit too much (but I haven't seen the movie, so I don't know how that fits in...). If I had to pick a favorite cue, it would probably be "Raptors Attack-Stand Together." It's just plain AWESOME! The theme heard in that one is exceptional; it creates a sense of desperation and fear, but also gives you an adrenaline rush.
One problem: most of the other reviews mention that there are no musical style songs and/or pop songs on it. Although this may be true for the cd advertised here at, I, unfortunately, got mine on ebay's, and my cd DID have a pop song! Maybe it's a special edition worth a lot of money...(I can only hope!). Unfortunately for me, I was expecting only JNH's excellent score, and now I have to skip over track 2 (pop song) which interferes with my listening enjoyment. I hope it doesn't happen to you unless you want that pop song. The time was just about right at [I'm guessing] 52:00 (somewhere around there, mine is 57:00 with the pop song). Go out and buy this if you're a fan of adventure scores, James Newton Howard, or good music in general. Well, get it here, you don't have to go anywhere else!
