Editorial Reviews

Disc one of this 2CD set features the premiere release of the complete score for Gremlins, mastered from the original PCM live stereo mixes by Bruce Botnick, supervising engineer of the original recording sessions. Disc two features a recreation of the 1984 soundtrack album, billed as a "Specially Priced 7-Cut Mini Album" with three pop songs on side one and a 16:12 suite from Goldsmith's score on side two. FSM's 28-page booklet includes a reminiscence from audio engineer Botnick as well as a detailed essay on film and score by Jeff Bond and Mike Matessino (incorporating comments from an interview with director Dante).

Format: Audio CD
The "Gremlins" soundtrack has gone full circle. Released in the days when CDs were still newfangled, and at a time when score soundtracks received a lot less respect than just five years earlier (witness the transition from 2LPs' worth of score each from the first two "Star Wars" films in 1977 and '80 to a measly 1LP for "Jedi" in '83), the "Gremlins" soundtrack had the additional --and all-too-common-- indignity of half the album space wasted by pop songs, leaving barely 16 minutes worth of score. (Compare to the original "Back to the Future" album, with even less score.) I've had the original LP for all this time... and nothing to play it on for over a decade.
"Gremlins" went on to become one of the premiere examples of the bootleg soundtrack, with cheaply produced CDs that at least had more of the score on it. With each DVD release, I wondered if they'd bother to put on an isolated score; no dice.

The last five years have been golden for classic '80s fantasy movie score soundtrack collectors: Predator, Back to the Future, Star Trek 2 and 3, and now Gremlins is complete. And so, amid rumors of the soon-to-come demise of the CD format, Gremlins has a complete album.

Like the recent Trek 3 (Search4Spock) re-issue, it comes in two CDs, 1) the complete score, and 2) a nostalgic reproduction of the original album of 4 cues/medleys and 3 pop songs (including a loud and early Peter Gabriel effort). Comes with very good and thorough liner notes.

Fantastic 2-Disc Set of Jerry Goldsmith great Score of "Gremlins", produced by STeven Spielberg with a interesting 30 page booklet.

The Disc one contains 34 tracks with Total time of 76:01 and Disc two with 7 tracks a total time of 31:25

What I can say?: the score is fantastic, opening with the of Max Steiner composed Warner Brothers Logo from 1935. Its dramatic, full loaded with action also with some soft parts when we hear "Gizmo's" melody.

We can hear the famous "Gremlin Rag" during the End Title,and as Bonus Track as full version.

Some parts of any cues sounds similar (so is my mind) to Jerry Goldsmiths "Poltergeist" which was also produced by Steven Spielberg.

When you like good movie scores, and of Jerry Goldsmith, so its a MUST HAVE to get this one.

Now finally we can hear a great soundtrack from the classic movie Gremlins. Always a hard to find soundtrack, but now this special edition has at last come out to showcase a great, fun and awesome album in its entirety, just plain great. Jerry Goldsmith has delivered a great chance to hear the album uncut and in all its awesomness.

Fun, epic and scary at times. That also sums up the movie that the soundtrack accompanies. Classic Goldsmith score, glad it's finally complete.
