This has to be one of the best soundtracks of all time!
C. MARTIN
James Horner's music for Star Trek II has (like the movie itself) always been a personal favorite of mine, in that it defines, for me, what Star Trek is mainly about.
Pater Ecstaticus
Great quality, if you have the original soundtrack that was released when the movie premiered, then you don't want to miss this Expanded Edition.

As someone who absolutely loved the GNP Crescendo CD, made from the LP master, the flaws with that release should be acknowledged.

- Sound Quality was slightly sub-par.
- The CD has been out of print for a while.

With this release, we not only have the complete score, but we have dramatically improved sound quality, and some of the most informative and detailed liner notes seen for a Star Trek score.

The additional material provides more of Khan's dark, brooding material (The Eels of Ceti Alpha V), with some moments of beauty (Spock (Dies), The Genesis Cave) and some great action cues (Enterprise Attacks Reliant), and missing key moments (Captain Terrel's Death, Buried Alive, Amazong Grace), and it makes for an interesting listen.

In some cases, it is possible to hear separate instruments where a vague notion of one instrument could be heard before.

For those that love the GNP Crescendo CD arrangement, the information is included on how to arrange the cues to match that release.

Highly recommended.

I've regularly listened to the GNP Crescendo release for years and this new release by FSM literally opens up new worlds. Before what sounded like one instrument now is recognizable as more. The music is crystal clear with none of the muddiness of the previous release. It's obvious great care was taken in this project & I can't thank FSM for rejuvenating one of my favorite soundtracks of all time. Now if they can only do the Search for Spock next...

James Horner's classic score to Star Trek: Wrath of Khan (1982) finally receives the treatment it deserves! The previous releases were incorrectly mixed and incomplete, but this release by FSM corrects the mixing issues and contains all of the music written for the film. If your a fan of Horner (or Star Trek) this is a must have!

This newly expanded edition of the soundtrack for Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is something I had been hoping for for years, ever since I first saw the picture, heard the music and owned the CD, but this really is a 5-star product! I was already very happy with the expanded edition of the music for Star Trek: The Motion Picture, and ever since that one came out, I had been hoping for an expanded version of Star Trek II. (Now let's hope for an expanded album for Star Trek III too. About this music James Horner can be quoted as saying: "It's just a much more interesting score and, for me, a much more beautiful and emotional score than Star Trek II." I find that a bit hard to believe. If only a full extended version of the soundtrack for Star Trek III: The Search for Spock would come out, we could better judge if Mr Horner is right ;)

James Horner's music for Star Trek II has (like the movie itself) always been a personal favorite of mine, in that it defines, for me, what Star Trek is mainly about. The first real, deep impressions I had of Star Trek, when I was an (impressionable) child, were not from the original series, but from seeing this movie and hearing this music, on television. It took a while to sink in, but I was hooked. Emotionally grabbed. Where I adore the the mystery, wonder, eeriness and graceful beauty of the music of Star Trek: The Motion Picture, I equally love the grandeur, drama and deep emotionality of the music for Star Trek II: it is more about the 'human element' in Star Trek (especially the relationship between Kirk and Spock. For better or for worse, the above-mentioned impressionable child within me is still alive ...

I had seen this new treatment of The Wrath of Khan soundtrack recently and decided to go for it. I probably played the old record a gazillion times and enjoyed it. I have never felt that Horner's Trek music surpassed Goldsmith's but the great thing is it didn't have to. We can have both. Besides, Horner was in his 20s when he wrote this and it holds up really well. As he said in the liner notes, he was more interested in the combination of music and picture than just the music itself. This stuff really fits Nick Meyer's vision of nautical to a T. All those horns! Awesome! As far as Trek composers go, I liked Cliff Eidelmann;s STVI score and I liked Michael Giacchino's music for the new film also even though I think I need to live with it a little so it can grow on me some more. I think that the original series composers (Kaplan, Fried, Fielding, Duning, Steiner, etc.) were the best but honestly everybody who has composed for Trek whether it's Jay Chattaway or Ron Jones or anybody, really...they all did a great job. As everyone else has said, this release puts the whole shebang (all the cues and a bonus track) on the disc and I have to admit, having seen this film a lot, it didn't seem new to me. But then I turned it up and listened more closely. There is A LOT of content in here that I have NEVER heard. The clarity and depth is much better than anything out previously. And as a fan, the loving presentation never hurts. And it is obvious that whoever made this...well, it was a labor of love. The liner notes are exhaustive but interesting and the place I bought it from is in Virginia - my home state. I loved it and look forward to playing this again soon...and hoping they do the same with any other Trek scores they can find from any film or episode. Trek music really is its own thing. And that is the best of times! I, too, say highly recommended. If you already have the score CD but don't have this, you DON'T have the score. Get it!

Horner's "Star Trek III" score to get similar treatment?
The people over at FSM/Retrograde have said that they will try to get III released, but since it was put out by a different record company they have to start over at square one. They've asked people not to bug them too much while they work through it, though they're well aware how much everybody... Read More
