I would give...,
This review is from: Ben-Hur: Complete Soundtrack Collection (Audio CD)
six stars for this 5-Disc Set which is limited to 2000 copies from Film Score Monthly because:
- has a total Time of 6 hours 6 minutes and 38 secons!!!!!
Disc 1 + 2 contains the complet film score with total Disc Time: 72:02 and 67:49
Disc 3: contains the Savina Album + Act One Alternates Versions with Total Disc Time 73:53
Disc 4: contains the First Kloss Album and Act Two Alternates Versions from the score with Total Disc Time 77:32
Disc 5 contains the Second Kloss Album and Additional Alternates & Bonus Tracks with total Disc Time 75:22
The Set contains 28-page-booklet.
With my words: the "Ben-Hur" score composed by Miklos Rozsa is one of the best scores for a movie ever made! Its monumental, fantastic, bombastic, emotional, atmosphere which I'm missing in the "most" new movies today. I have already the 2-Disc-Set in book format released in the 90s bei Rhino but this Set is for movie goers and lovers a - must have it!!!! - When you think the "Twilight" Score would be the best score then you never have heard before this one!
Final words: buy it!
my only critic: for more Track information you have to go to the FSM website.
