The Fury easily ranks as John Williams most UNDERRATED work. It's haunting feel is unlike any other film soundtrack, and ranks (in my opinion), one of his top 5, if not his best (and that is saying ALOT). My only complaint is that the entire score is currently not available. Regardless, buy this... a MUST for any fan of John Williams, or music itself.

Like Williams's score to "Jane Eyre" and "Dracula," his music for "The Fury" deserves the re-mastered, full-length version. Several musical cues from the film are missing, indicative of the then common practice of releasing partial soundtracks due to the perception that movie score fans are an "insignificant" lot.

Thankfully, aficionados of film scoring have grown tremendously and "The Fury" ranks as a forgotten gem from one of the premier composers of the past forty years, a muscian with the awards to prove it.

Hopefully, a new version is in the works; but, until that time arrives, those that appreciate good scores will have to settle for this "truncated" release.

A good film composer can write a score that you will enjoy for a film that you will not. John Williams is a good film composer, and that is the case here. This film is not particularly to my taste, but the music certainly is. It is a gem of a film score that has not been accorded the attention which it deserves. It well rewards the listener.

The score for this film from John Williams stands on it's own merit. Williams completely captures the mood with this modern masterpiece of dramatic scoring that ranks with the best work he has done to date. This is reminiscent to the late Bernard Herrmann's score for "Vertigo", haunting in theme and content. The string arrangements are awesome as heard on the final track "EPILOGUE", truly a highlight to this magical album. Williams provides a touch of class and elegance to balance this story of horror and intrigue.

Overshadowed by the many scores of the late 1970s are The Fury and Dracula. I really think JW went to twon with The Fury. As a stand-alone piece it is one of the most complete listening experiences he has offered. The theme, simple, I think was ripped off by Danny Elfman for Batman and by Christopher Young for Hellraiser. What do you think, Warren?
