4.0 out of 5 stars Try to find the OTHER import! March 28, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Another import of this album exists which contains 32 tracks running about 72 minutes. I had purchased this shorter album domestically when it was released only to be both extremely satisfied to finally have the Dune score and also disappointed that much of the film's music was not included. The differences between the shorter version and the longer reissue, besides number of tracks and of course length, are that Eno's "Prophecy Theme" is left off and all songs are included without any film dialogue inserted in them. This makes the longer release even better since it doesn't entirely duplicate the shorter release that I already owned. So, until you can track down the longer import reissue, get the shorter version available here. I still play both regularly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Toto's "Dune" still holds up April 3, 2001
Format:Audio CD
David Lynch's film version of the science fiction epic "Dune" received some dreadful reviews when it came out many years ago. I must admit, I enjoyed the film: Lynch's approach to the material continues to intrigue me. And one of the elements of the film that impressed me the most was the stirring musical score by pop/rock group Toto.
Musical scores to sci-fi epics are generally more the territory of orchestral composer/conductors like John Williams and Jerry Goldsmith, but the members of Toto really rose to this challenge. The score captures the spirit of the film's alien worlds, as well as the many moods of the characters.
Some of the best selections from the CD are the dreamy prologue, the majestic main title, the weirdly energetic "Robot Fight," and the creepy "The Floating Fat Man (The Baron)." The final track, "Take My Hand," is an especially elegant and poetic composition. Two tracks are further enhanced by spoken-word performances taken from the film: the prologue by Virginia Madsen (Princess Irulan) from "Prologue," and threatening words from Baron Harkonnen (Kenneth McMillan) on "The Floating Fat Man." Overall, one of my favorite film soundtracks from the awesome 80s.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Dune...therefore the rating is automatic. April 5, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I have both versions of the soundtrack and right now am in the process of blending the two together into one soundtrack. I happen to be one of the funky ones who happens to like Virginia Madsen's (Princess Irulan) voiceover on the prologue, and Kenneth McMillan (Baron Vladamir Harkonnen) on "The Floating Fat Man (The Baron)". Those two cuts and "The Prophecy Theme" are gonna get plopped into my personal copy of the soundtrack for playback in my car. Now, as to the rest of the music...well since I've had this CD for far longer than I believe any of the other reviewers (I've had it since it was first reissued on CD), I was very pleased at the soundtrack. It was bad enough that it took me about five years to find it. The expanded reissue is much better in that it is more complete, but I'm so used to the two tracks with voiceovers and the prophecy theme that I'll throw them onto the one CD and be done with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic story well served by ethereal musical score April 25, 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Toto + Eno=Dune Dreamscape February 27, 2001
Format:Audio CD
The most noteworthy and memorable tracks here are the Prologue with actress Virginia Madsen's introduction/plot setting monologue to the story of Dune, the semi-soft rock and classical fusion sound of Take My Hand(closing credits), the Eno melancholy and haunting synthesized Prophecy theme, and the Dune Desert Theme. All else is richly orchestrated, written, and performed by Toto with various background synthesizer effects. The Brian Eno minimalistic new age/spacescape Prophecy Theme blends in seamlessly with the rest of Toto's score; you will forget that there were two different artists involved with the soundtrack ! They work in unison and great coherency...Even though the soundtrack to Dune cannot rival that of New Age artist Vangelis' BladeRunner OST it still captivates the very essence and moody spirit of the film ! Toto and Eno will take you to the universe of Frank Herbert's/David Lynch's Dune...

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful CD! February 28, 2001
Format:Audio CD
If you saw the movie, and loved the music, you should get this CD, for it is simply one of the best instrumental CDs I ever heard. But even if you haven't seen the movie (or forgot about the music), this CD will still get you. It contains 17 instrumental songs, all are simply wonderful. Especially "Take my hand", which was used for the credit's titles, and is probably the instrumental song I love most. I loved one of the other reviewers wrote, that this CD will be played at his wedding, funeral, and birth of first born. How beautifully he has captured the uniqueness of this CD.

They couldn't get Ridley Scott to direct "Dune" back in 1984, but that Brian Eno track just about made up for it.
