Editorial Reviews

Phenomenon is about the blossoming of human potential, as is Scientology. Star John Travolta is a noted practitioner of the latter; draw your own conclusions about the film's potential for proselytizing. Not surprisingly, its soundtrack doles out one track to scorer Thomas Newman and the rest to "uplifting" modern pop perfectly characterized by Eric Clapton's ubiquitous "Change the World" and Peter Gabriel's once charming "I Have the Touch." If this is human potential, God help us. --Jerry McCulley

The other tracks are great songs themselves, but the main reason why I wanted this soundtrack was that Thomas Newman is one of my absolute favorite composers. So besides the last track, "The Orchard," where is the rest of the amazing original score??

I just saw Phenomenon in TV ( not my first time watching it) and I wanted to get the music which is played whenever it shows the trees swaying and I cant find it anywhere. I thought I could find it on my fileshare program ( which I bought I am not downloading without owning the program) Anyways it doesnt come up. I have beautiful music from A Beautiful Mind and Forrest Gump etc but the title of this instrumental piece is missing and isnt on the soundtrack which is odd because it is featured a few times throughout the movie.

A March 7, 2004 review by C. Michael Rusk pointed out that much of the beautifully orchestrated music from the film has been left off the soundtrack CD. WHY? There are many who viewed AND ENJOYED the movie partly BECAUSE OF THE MUSIC. Since much of the film score has not been included on the soundtrack CD, I'll not buy it. Dumb move by "the music industry" I believe.
Thus, Amazon, you've LOST A SALE (God forbid). Maybe you should "talk" to the soundtrack producers about this error in judgment.

There is no question that John Travolta has had one of the most successful movie careers of all time. Sometimes people forget that Travolta movies have been associated with three very popular soundtracks - "Saturday Night Fever", "Urban Cowboy", and "Grease" (Travolta would actually sing on that one). Many forget is that there is a fourth Travolta film that has one of the all-time great soundtracks - that film being "Phenomenon". Not only did "Phenomenon" have a great soundtrack, but it probably is both the most underrated performance and underrated film in Travolta's career. One thing that makes the "Phenomenon" soundtrack so outstanding is that it truly captures the essence of the movie. As you listen to the soundtrack, you truly feel like to are watching the movie. Not only is this a great soundtrack, I would venture to say that this was the best album for 1996.

To understand why the "Phenomenon" soundtrack is so good - one must have a little background on the movie. Travolta plays George Malley - a small town man whose life changes after he sees a flash of light. Following that encounter, George begins to experience genius and telekinetic powers. However the government becomes wary of George's newfound powers However George learns that he has a rare brain tumor that is causing his brain to act the way he is. The tumor is slowly killing George. The film deals with George dealing with his powers, the government, a relationship with Lace Pennamin (played by Kyra Sedgwick), and his own mortality. It are all of these factors that really play into the music that supports this movie.

Each of the songs have some of the great producers in the business - Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds, Don Was, Trevor Horn, and Robbie Robertson.

Who makes the decisions on these soundtracks -- what to include, what to discard? Thomas Newman's magic MADE this movie -- no less than his artistry is what made Shawshank Redemption or American Beauty work. So why screw it up by including all these other goofy rock tunes when it's Newman's work that makes the movie work in the first place. For those who just INSIST on having a smorgasborg of incoherent, disconnected rock-and-roll songs in the car's CD player, they should make one version of the Phenomenon Soundtrack. And for those of us who LOVED THE MOVIE, they should make another: a Soundtrack CD that really does contain the orchestrated score that is the heart and soul of the movie itself. (Only one cut on this soundtrack, "The Orchard" is Newman's work to begin with. What a sham!) Is that too much to ask?

Anyone expecting the original soundtrack music will be disappointed. Anyone who just wants the oldies cuts will make out fine. I always find it very irritating when I end up with a soundtrack that eliminates much of the key music for no particularly good reason.

When I was a few years too young to watch the actual movie, I found the soundtrack to "Phenomenon" in my dad's music closet; it has remained my overall favorite CD ever since. Although some reviewers pointed out that it is missing a few things, that doesn't detract from my enjoyment of the music on here. It reminds me more of a "best of..." type collection than a soundtrack. I'm glad that it doesn't have every single arrangement because, honestly, that gets a little old when listening to the entire CD in one sitting. But if you're into collecting for that purpose, I wouldn't recommend this. For people wanting some fantastic music to add to their collection (that in ten years hasn't gotten old for me), put this on your list. At track one you'll be hooked.

This is my favorite Soundtrack of all time. There are some great renditions of classic songs as well as an excellent instrumental cut at the end which evokes memories of the movie every time I listen to it. Clapton's song is a classic and I highly recommend listening to both Jewel and Aaron Neville's songs. I used Aaron's song as the song my wife and I first danced to at our wedding. Enjoy!
