5.0 out of 5 stars The Best! April 13, 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is best score in the Indiana Jones franchise (well at least in my opinion). I give the 5 stars for the score written for the film overall and am happy that the new soundtracks are remastered in which the sound is impeccable. There is only one tiny complaint...just wish the entire score was available, but I digress lol. P.S.- I'm still not sure as to why some reviewers rate a certain product because they had a bad experience with a certain seller in which it has nothing to do with the product itself.

4.0 out of 5 stars The soundtrack we should have had 20+ years ago. February 5, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I often wonder what goes through the minds of marketers or producers when they release a product that's half baked. What do they say or contemplate to themselves? Something like, "Aw, who cares about all that other stuff anyway?" or "Screw 'em, they're lucky to be getting this!" or "Heh, I simply don't care."

Whichever, this is the beautiful music to a very entetaining film that we should have had many years ago, but are only now getting after two and a half plus decades?

Oh well. Just be glad you have it.

Once again, John Williams shows why he is probably the undisputed master of film scores. He has a lot of competition (Jerry Goldsmith, James Horner, Lalo Schifrin, Hans Zimmer) but considering the number of blockbuster films he has scored, I'd put him at the top - since it is likely his scoring abilities that contributed in no small way to the success of these films.

'Temple of Doom', being the darkest of the 'Indy' series, got a lot of criticism that was largely undeserved. Williams' score, however, is beyond reproach - particularly with this soundtrack release. This is pretty much the complete score; nothing glaring is left out. In the previous release of the soundtrack (1984), the limitations of vinyl were obvious; in addition, the market largely viewed soundtracks as a poor investment (in spite of the interest of us soundtrack buffs) and offered limited releases of them, if at all (even Williams' masterpiece 'Return of the Jedi' score had been released only in a 1-LP album with very limited tracks the previous year). The CD release of this film, by comparison, changed all that - significantly for the better.

Several of the tracks are previously unreleased or contain previously unreleased cues; most notable of some of these are 'Indy negotiates', as Jones angrily deals with a Chinese gangster trying to swindle him; 'Map-Out of Fuel', as Indy, Willie & Short Round make a narrow escape from a plane over the Himalayas before it hits a mountainside; 'The Scroll/To Pankot Palace', as Indy & his friends make their way towards the Palace by elephant, and Indy finds a chilling statue of Kali.

5.0 out of 5 stars FINALLY...AN EXPANDED SCORE! April 18, 2009
Format:Audio CD
This has always been one of my favorite Indy scores. I have always wanted the score when Indy "approaches the stones," and now I have it! I also like the expanded sequences from the mine fight.

5.0 out of 5 stars John Williams is awesome! February 17, 2009
By C. Hall
Format:Audio CD
I'm glad that I bought this CD along with the soundtrack to Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Now I have all four soundtracks from the movies. This is John Williams at his best. I was also happy that it had the song Anything Goes on here (it wasn't in the track listing). I'm listening to it right now. Thank you for re-issuing the original soundtracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Williams' finest May 8, 2014
By Rob
Format:Audio CD
John Williams was at the top of his game with Temple of Doom. The film was atrocious but the music, as is so often the case, was so much better than the film. The Indiana Jones material is back but now we get new music for the temple of doom, for Short Round, for Willie, and for a ton of other incredible sequences (namely tracks like 'Slalom on Mt. Humol' which is one of many energetic, adventurous highpoints of this score.) I love hearing how Williams can bring the listener down from an adventure track to a calm, reflective moment, such as at the very end of 'Saving Willie', where we hear the love theme, followed by the Indy theme that transitions into Short Round's theme...before picking up into the action again. How Williams can do this so effortlessly is amazing to me. I will admit that the 'Temple of Doom' track is one I usually skip, as I don't get into cult-chanting, but the rest of the score is spot-on brilliance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Temple of Fun May 6, 2014
By leo134
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is one of my top ten soundtracks and films. Probably no. 5. It has quite a good booklet with it with some notes, including who played in the orchestra and some really good photos. Unfortunately this isn't the complete score, but almost. End Credits and Short Round's Theme are my two favourites. They are the most uplifting, rich and emotional!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another John Williams Classic February 17, 2014
By RRS
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is one of my favorite Indiana Jones CDs and of all my John Williams CDs. Track 13 has the same chant heard when Indy is becoming possessed and when the guy gets his heart ripped out. Spooky sounding. Other tracks feature Short-Round's theme as well as the typcial love themes and the Slave Children march. Tracks 1-5 feature the terror through Japan.
