5.0 out of 5 stars Mighty indulgence from a master November 23, 2006
By Jason
Format:Audio CD
For those unaware, Basil Poledouris, composer of 'Starship Troopers' as well as many other films, passed away about two weeks ago. Somehow, this fact slipped by me, and I just heard the awful news today. Over on YouTube, there are a few tributes to the composer, which feature scenes from the films he composed along side his enchanting music, and I just couldn't help but weep a few minutes into watching them.

I'm 23 now, and 'Starship Troopers' was one of the very few scores to excite me beyond reason as a teen. I recall sitting in the theater, as the the young soldiers bravely dropped from spaceships to the bug planet Klendathu, and I don't think before, nor since, have I ever felt so riveted by a scene and its music. Not only is every single technical aspect of that five minute scene of the most pristine quality (in my opinion, director Paul Verheoven's most phenomenally orchestrated sequence ever to grace the screen), but at least half of the goosebumps on my body at that moment were a consequence of Basil Poledouris' unashamedly heroic, majestic music; rarely had I heard such a glorious musical portrayal of the proud, honorable sentiments of Human conviction, patriotism, and grandeur. It was a moment I'll always remember.

Now that I think of it, 'Starship Troopers' was probably the very first score album I actually purchased myself, having given two or three before as a youngin' when requested for gifts (James Horner's 'Braveheart' and Hans Zimmer's 'Crimson Tide' if I remember correctly). I was 13 at the time. Because of this, a great deal of sentimentality runs through my veins for the score. In the decade since, I've come to view Verhoeven's film in a different light, which makes Poledouris' score somehow that much more brilliant.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some tracks such as "Carmen's Test Flight" are missing. February 27, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Everyone has been asking about the song "I have not been to paradise" by Zoe Poledouris. It should have been on the CD since it WAS in the film. But what I want to know about are the parts of the score that are missing. The piece titled "Carmen's Test Flight" was a wonderful track that is very difficult to find. There was a 2-disk COMPLETE SCORE produced but it was only a limited promotional item.....therefore, good luck trying to hunt one down. If you were lucky you could have downloaded some of the missing pieces from public sharing websites before "you know what" happened. Too bad......finding a copy of the Complete Score is like trying to find a copy of Alan Silvestri's "Predator"! I do have a track listing from the 2CD Expanded score:

1. Intro and Fed Net March (1:56)
2. Bugs Strike Back (0:36)
3. Kids and Bugs (0:17)
4. Ricos Perceptual Powers (0:42)
5. Carmen's Departure (0:55)
6. Losing Carmen (1:02)
7. Carmen's Test Flight (1:38)
8. Medic (0:25)
9. Wargame Victory (0:48)
10. In Space (1:03)
11. Punishment and Asteroid Grazing (4:50)
12. It's War (2:24)
13. Klendathu Drop (5:19)
14. Klendathu Massacre (0:58)
15. The Roughnecks (0:52)
16. Tango Urilla (3:51)
17. Hopper Canyon (2:44)
18. A Lone Survivor (1:28)
19. Incoming (2:56)
20. Bugs & #33 (2:20)
21. Ed-209 to the Rescue (4:46) *This is probably not from Robocop.
22. The Bug Threat (0:23)
23. Dizzy's Funeral (1:19)
24. Time for Counterstrike (3:05)
25. Destruction of Roger Young (3:27)
26. Who's with Me? (2:24)
27. Brainbug (3:57)
28. We're Still Alive (0:42)
29. They Will Win & #33 (4:01)
30. End Credits (10:04)

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Military-stle themes November 21, 1999
Format:Audio CD
This CD is the bomb. When I saw "Starship Troopers" in the theater, I knew I had to have this CD. I've listened to it in my car endlessly. As far as listening to action music goes, probably "The Rock" soundtrack is comparable (though "Starship Troopers" is a little better). I liked the "Glory" soundtrack (during the movie; I'm not enthusiastic about listening to it on its own merits), but the themes on this CD are similar. Plus it captures the futuristic feel of the movie without losing its military aura.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Enough Music October 30, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This CD is too short. The movie contained some wonderful music, but only 36 minutes of it are found here. Even though I liked the selections on the CD (excluding the Zoe Poledouris song at the end), there was too much music missing for it to be anything other than disappointing. ANY movie soundtrack CD that is less than 60 minutes long is a ripoff.

5.0 out of 5 stars A GREAT SOUNDTRACK-From a GREAT MOVIE January 20, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I knew even since I saw this movie that I was going to get the Soundtrack, but when I heard the samples I went crazy looking for it. When I eventually got it (it took so freaking long because all of the stores were sold out... no wonder why). The song "I have not been to paradise" is a variation of the song "I have not been to Oxford Town" by David Bowie, I'm not sure why they didn't release this one (I think it's better then "Into it", but they are both good) but this would be a real chart buster...if anybody can get this song or knows how to contact Zoe Poledouris please e-mail me! I would recommend this album for anybody, and your almost certain to like this soundtrack even if you didn't like this movie.

The music, like the movie, was unfairly overlooked, misunderstood and underrated.

This CD is short with only the orchestra music.... there is one track at the end that has vocals on it... not worth the money or the time. Do not buy.

I'll be quick and to the point: It is the unique instrumental music to Starship Troopers... but there is only 36 minutes to the entire CD.

3.0 out of 5 stars Zoe Poledouris' version of "I Have Not Been to Oxford Town"
Where did it go? Her version of that song was haunting and memorable. In my opinion, the best piece of music in the entire film. Peculiar that it was never released in full!
