5.0 out of 5 stars " this is a perfect ten ~ Varese 25th Celebration" June 23, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Anyone who has ever read my reviews knows that I'm a complete "film-score-buff" nut. Varese Records has come up with the best of the best in the category of soundtracks/scores. Just take a peek with their latest release "Varese Sarabande:A 25th Anniversary Celebration", featuring a 4-CD-Set with inclusive 84 cues of unforgettable scores from the leading composers of the past Century. The quality of sound, texture and substance is a film scores collectors dream. Each and every track is a self culture unto its own, bringing countries, worlds and universes under one umbrella. This is one not to be missed, so many highlights and stand outs ~ from one spectrum of comedy, romance, drama, suspense, action, adventure...to the other of westerns, horror, war, thrillers and classics that linger from decade to decade.
Much like its predecessor "In Session:A Film Music Celebration" (Varese Records 302-066-225-2), takes the listener on a musical journey that will live on as long as there is the Cinema and Music. This compilation is aimed at the "serious collector of Music", make no mistake about it. Varese and producer Robert Townson hit the mark, a perfect bulleye...not to mention the price is right ~ gotta love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have! I love these CDs! April 11, 2004
By Laura
Format:Audio CD
This collection is amazing. It is huge, but I never got the impression that they were "throwing" things in to fill space. I can listen to the entire set from start to finish and by the time it's done, be ready to start over at disc 1 again!
Varèse Sarabande certainly has a formidible archive to dip from--however, what I liked best about this collection is that they weren't afraid to use scores from less popular (or popularly disregarded) movies. This collection is set apart from the vast majority of other film score collections that I've encountered because is actually all about the music/composers and not the movies behind them. I may never have heard some of this music otherwise, simply because I was not interested in the movie behind it.
This will stay at the top of my playlist for a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Collection of Movie Themes May 9, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I've never seen a better variety of memorable movie themes all in one collection. This is definitely the place to begin if you are just starting out as a fan/collector of film scores.
Every major composer is represented here, from John Williams to Danny Elfman, Michael Kamen to Rachel Portman, Randy Newman to Jerry Goldsmith... A stunning collection of themes for a wonderful price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely the BEST June 23, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'll just repeat what others have said before -- this is absolutely fantastic. I am awed and impressed with the artistry and great care that Varèse Sarabande took in collecting and placing all the tracks on this 4 CD set. One track naturally blends into the next; nothing jarring, nothing out of place, and yet the collection is eclectic enough! "Old Timer" composers (long dead Bernard Herrmann, Franz Waxman, Erich Korngold) are allowed to shine alongside contemporary composers like Jerry Goldsmith, Danny Elfman, John Debney, Thomas Newman and many more. All tracks are excellent. All tracks are a delight.
I even felt compelled to order several Georges Delerue CDs after hearing such stirring and achingly gorgeous examples of his work on these CDs. I also felt the urge (it was beyond my control, I'm telling you) to order John Debney's score for "The Replacements". And I have many more film scores on my shopping list, all thanks to this collection.
I am a big film music fan (Goldsmith, Williams, Jarre, Bernstein and several other compsers being favorites -- especially Goldsmith). And this collection of film music shows off their work. But more importantly, it shows off the work of many other composers that I'm aware of and suspected were good, but just hadn't heard enough of...until now. I've been given the opportunity to sample so many wonderful composers' works, thanks to this collection of CDs.
What a rare treasure it is. And the price is beyond comprehension! What a deal for FOUR CDs!?! Snatch it up now!

5.0 out of 5 stars SCOOP THIS ONE UP...IMMEDIATELY! April 25, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a film music lover's delight: 84 themes/melodies from some of the greatest films in cinematic history. As the owner of twenty-eight albums from the company's catalog, I can attest that Varese-Sarabande is the premier label for contemporary and classic soundtracks.
And the price on this one is a definite STEAL!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great overview of a great record company! April 23, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD as a collector's item. Being a diehard soundtrack collecter, I have most of this material on other CDs. It has music I have never been able to find (noteably: Raggedy Man and Eye Of The Needle) and is a great overview of the history of Varese. The notes and pictures in the booklet are also very nice. I appreciate Varese and what they have done for us film music lovers over the last 25 years (has it been that long?).

5.0 out of 5 stars unbelievable bargain December 22, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I could do an infomercial for this boxed set. The selection of music is incredible. The volume of music is amazing and the price is unbelievable. For the price of one CD you get four CD's packed with great movie themes from some of the most well known movies to the obscure. From Brianstorm to The Empire Strikes Back, from Pee Wee's Big Adventure to Halloween, it's all here. It features all of my favorite composers like John Williams, James Horner and Hans Zimmer as well as some I've never heard of and would not have it not for this wonderful collection. I can honestly say I would have paid this price for the first CD alone, but you get four! If you love music from the movies, this is a must.
