I wish people would get a clue before they write reviews...
on January 5, 2002
The reviewer who said that this cd was shameless money making and that it only contained 4 minutes of original music and the rest was from the movie, is obviously utterly and completely clueless.
First of all, this soundtrack is stellar (pardon the pun). Like the series Babylon 5, Stargate SG-1 owes a great deal to its music. The scores are utterly perfect for the ambience that the producers wished to create. The music ranges from ethnic sounding strings to booming orchestral arrangements replete with ominous vocals to signal the arrival of Apophis and the Jaf'fa...
When the aforementioned reviewer said that this music was taken from the original movie, they were absolutely in error. This cd is, in fact, the soundtrack for the 2 hour pilot movie of the Stargate SG-1 series currently running on Showtime and in syndication.
If you are a fan of the series, then you will absolutely love this cd. Just before Christmas I bought about 10 music cds I'd really been wanting, so far, I've played this one almost exclusively. It really is a first rate listen and a throughly worthwhile purchase.
If you are looking for more music from the series, there is another cd called, The Best of Stargate SG-1, that contains pieces from almost every episode of the first season.
