Lorilee E. Hoyt
From beginning to end, the music sets the tone of the movie and the theme has become almost as recognizable as some of his other works.

Different film ... different soundtrack! You can count on the genius of John Williams to create something so daringly 'different' and 'new', certainly when compared with his music for 'Jurassic Park'. It is a sign of highest artistic honesty that John williams here went ahead without trying to cash in on the success of his music for 'Jurassic Park' by reusing any of his themes from that film, only just hinting at them now and then. The only time when the renowned 'big themes' come along is during the final 'Finale and Jurassic Park Theme'. I like to see this as a little reward to the listener, as if John Williams is saying: I have created something completely new, and I really appreciate that you like it, so now I would like to treat you with a nice encore.
Anyhow, artistically, John Williams simply HAD to take another direction, because the wide-eyed wonder and happy excitement of the first Jurassic Park could of course not be repeated in The Lost World. With The Lost World we have taken the next logical step: the overwhelming awe and excitement of Jurassic Park (seeing dinosaurs alive for the very first time!) has worn of and has been replaced by darker sentiments. The Lost World is not - like in Jurassic Park - about the awe and humility before the beauty and intricacy of Nature and the fear of incontrolability of scientific experiments. The Lost World necessarily had to go beyond that: what to do now that 'bad guys' have taken over. (That is why Jurassic Park III was an artistic failure: it didn't take the next logical step, but was just repeating the same moves again in a rather uninspired way, causing it to become an uninspired movie of much lower artistic quality.)
John Williams' music for The Lost World is indeed approprately 'different'.

While "Jurassic Park," with its tale of cloning long-extinct dinosaurs and bringing them to life in the present, is steeped in contemporary possibilities, "The Lost World" is more a throwback to the "big monster" films of the 1950's. Thus, John Williams does more of a Max Steiner/"King Kong" thing with the score to the latter. It is bombastic, frenetic, resulting in a composition of thrilling brilliance. Some of the themes from the first score are interpolated differently and are almost subtle in their execution, but that befits a story wherein much of the action takes place in modern-day San Diego, involving a "fish-out-of-water" Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Williams effectively uses tribal drums throughout to convey the "jungle feel," regardless of the on-screen setting. The best cut of all is "The Hunt," a truly exciting piece that reminds one of Jerry Goldsmith's similarly-titled selection from the classic "Planet of the Apes."

The score to "The Lost World" is far superior to the composer's later work for such Spielberg fare as "Minority Report" and "The War of the Worlds," scores that lack the depth and ingenuity of the former.

"The Lost World" can stand almost toe-to-toe with the composer's landmark creations for "Jaws" and "Star Wars."

I can't believe everyone is saying "this isn't as good as Jurassic Park." If anything, it is a whole lot BETTER than the soundtrack to the first movie. The main theme track (track 1), Rescuing Sarah and The Hunt are absolutely brilliantly orchestrated. Anyone who doesn't think so is just silly.
Unfortunately, the movie itself was horrible - not suspenseful, just dumb. And like most John Williams music in movies, the sound level in the movie is so low that you can't even HEAR the soundtrack, so that is very disappointing.
This very dark soundtrack is great! It is very underrated because it is one of John's best soundtracks -- much more subtle than many others. Highly recommended.

I bought this score when the film came out, because the original was what turned me on to film scores. I expected a lot of the same beautiful, themes and magical music. When I sat down to listen to this sequel score, I was disappointed. Today, years later, I want to slap the boy who couldn't appreciate this music for what it was: a fantastic film score.
I can say now that I would have been disappointed if Williams had relied solely on the Jurassic Park material on this film. This film is a lot darker, a lot more action intense--not quite as good either--but also one cannot deny that an audience will no doubt find the "magic" to be in lesser degree because dinosaurs had become old hat by this time. The first film was breathtaking because it was probably the single largest leap in special effects, so the sequel couldn't do anything more than the same; therefore Williams was smart enough to compose a stand alone score that didn't try to sap all of the magic from the original film. I can't help but applaud him for that.
The Lost World is a far darker score with a main theme that isn't as awe-inspiring as the original, but deserves your respect just as well. It's almost a pity that it doesn't appear more abundantly on the album, ESPECIALLY in the End Credits, where Williams makes his only substantial--and unwanted--return to Jurassic Park material. The rest of the score has some of the greatest action music I've ever come across in a film score, and what makes it all the better is the persistent attention to African drum beats that make for a welcome change in Williams' repertoire. Every moment is exciting and thrilling; I don't think I can praise enough just how perfect the percussion is and how much I almost think it was neglected in the original.
