Can't I rate it 0 stars? THIS IS "TOO 90's"!!!,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Young & The Restless: Original Soundtrack (Television Serial) (Audio CD)
When they announced they were releasing a Y&R soundtrack, I was thrilled beyond words! All those beautiful, haunting, melodic music cues of the 80's and EARLY 90's, some of them very reminiscent of "Twin Peaks", would finally be mine! Well, not exactly. These are all, as they previous reviewer put it, "generic". I mean they sound like Muzac or the other personality-less music the other soaps use! Could they not get the rights/clearance for the older music? Were they composed by outside sources and therefore wouldn't bring in as much money as these, which were composed by the currect staff? Another reviewer mentioned the cue used for a tender moment with Nikki and Victor, well that's the one I wanted second most of all - it's simply breathtaking! Almost reminds one of the 70's "Romeo and Juliet" music... My favorite piece is what my girlfriend would call the "twinkling" music - they would play it whenever something "mysterious" was going down. And what about the thundering piano "doom" music (often used during Nikki's alcoholism storyline). Y&R, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE release the classic music for your 30th Anniversary next year and maybe a box set of classic moments on DVD to go along with it? Suggestions: David Kimble undoes his plastic surgery bandages to find the word "KILLER" written on his forehead; Sheila and Lauren's catfight in the lab; Nikki gets trashed at the Collonade room and starts stripping; Nina and Cricket in goofy disguises infiltrate black market baby broker Rose's inner sanctum; Jack Abbott enters his office and Victor (whom everyone presumed dead in a fiery car crash) turns around in the black leather swivel chair and Jack almost has a heart attack. Any more suggestions?

The music that was playing when Victor was reminiscing, (shown in flashbacks) about Victoria after having a major blowout about her relationship with Ryan. I think it was after he found out that she had married Ryan.
