Editorial Reviews

One of the seminal scores of the 1980s, "Stripes" was a huge hit and featured a score by one of film music's greatest legends, yet still there was no soundtrack release. Elmer Bernstein's score for "Stripes" is a classic. For it he composed a march that was every bit as memorable as the one he wrote for "The Great Escape." Once again, Bernstein played the comedy straight and what resulted is a tremendously exciting action score. It comes from a particularly exciting time in Bernstein's career. 1981 also included the composer's utterly magnificent score for "Heavy Metal."

Even If you have never seen the movie Stripes, you will reconize the music. Bernstein's score perfectly captures the flavor of the movie. It had been years since I had seen the movie. But with each track I found myself laughing as it brought back memories of some very funny moments from the movie.

I have always been surprised that collections of military movie themes have not included "Stripes" especially ones which include "1941". Just like John Williams did for "1941", Elmer Bernstein wrote a traditional march for a commedy movie. The main theme is stirring with just a hint of a lighter tone and it contrasts nicely with the lighter pieces he wrote for the comedy scenes. This album makes an excellent addition to any collection of military theme music or a collection of Elmer Bernstein's music.

Anyone who has seen STRIPES must certainly remember the overall theme music. This is a classic Elmer Bernstein score. Bernstein was a prolific composer who wrote the music for iconic films such as THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, THE GREAT ESCAPE, THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN, ANIMAL HOUSE and GHOSTBUSTERS. The list goes on and on. As with many of Bernstein's soundtracks, there are some familiar cues in STRIPES. At times I detected hints of THE BRIDGE AT REMAGEN and SPIES LIKE US. All the better.

Unlike other slap-it-together soundtracks albums for non-blockbuster movies, usually limited to 12 tracks, this CD, as well as its MP3 download, have 20 tracks. The 20th track is actually the Elmer Bernstein music tailored for the movie's coming attractions. Essentially you have the entire film soundtrack.

This is a great CD to listen to while on a long drive. The main theme sticks with you long after you shut off the stereo.

Forget Leonard, Elmer is the real musical genius when it comes to Bernsteins. OK, don't forget Leonard; he's good, too, but he's Number 2. This jangly, catchy soundtrack is just one example why. If you're not convinced, check out "The Great Escape."
