An amazing number of people have shunned this album simply because it is not the soundtrack containing the classic oldies songs from the film. That is no reason to give this excellent album a one star rating. The original soundtrack album was released in 1983 on Motown Records and just never made the cut when things were being changed over to CD in 1985. Copies of that LP can be found frequently on online auctions. But for those who appreciate a good film score or John Carpenter's minimalist synth music in general, this score album released by Varese Sarabande is worth every cent. Unlike many score albums, the whole thing hangs together. When the music isn't outright scary, it's unforgetably haunting and surprisingly touching. There is a tone of tragedy here that I would never have expected the score to touch on. As always, Carpenter throws very little into the pot and pours out plenty. 100% atmosphere.

Being a HUGE soundtrack fan, a huge Stephen King fan, and quite the little John Carpenter fan, I have to admit that this is wonderful score- all prejudice aside. It's evocative in that way that creeps up your spine and makes you look over your shoulder with a slightly cold sweat at any dual headlights behind you on the road.
But yes, this is the score. For the person wondering, here's the song list to the film. Enjoy! When These classic rock 'n roll songs are mixed with this wonderful score, WATCH OUT BECAUSE NO ONE CAN STOP YOU!

Having purchased what I presumed to be a CD of the 1950's music I was dissapointed to find it was not what I had anticipated. I had aquired a copy audio tape of the 50's music to Christine years before I actually saw the movie and aquired the video. I have spent the last ten years desperately trying to find a supplier to replace my audio tape (which became 'Pepsi' contaminated)or aquire a CD of the origional music, c'mon guys - somebody out there must know where I can get my hands on some of the best music included on an excellant film track?

This is the music from the background of the movie, not the 50's music as on the original LP. Still interesting for the collector though!

This is not a disc of the classic rock of the film, but of Carpenter's typically minimal score. It's not one of his best, but it's good for the sad Carpenter addict (like your humble reviewer).

He makes good use of a few cues, more like his earlier scores but he adds some simple textures elsewhere. Not as memorable as Halloween or Escape from New York and not as good as The Thing disc (with a lot of Morricone's leftover music) but decent enough.

With the recent Special Edition DVD they should put together a combo of the score and the rock tracks, though I wouldn't bet on it soon.

Some good tracks include the simple, driving cue heard when Christine runs down the despicable Moochie Wells, and also when Christine chases the rest of the 20-something high school delinquents in the film. Not the best Carpenter flick, far from his worst, that's about where the score is. Definitely Carpenter, but could have used fatter, fuzzier synths.

The score for Christine, unreleased for years, is finally available and well worth the wait. Largely felt more than heard in the film, the score shows Carpenter's gift for building the right mood with as little music as possible. It's also the first of his themeless mood scores. Highly recommended to Carpenter buffs.

I have been searching for the Christine score for many years and I am glad I found it. I knew all along it was the score and not the songs, which some people might be put off by. It is fantastic to listen to, especially in the car, and fans of John Carpenter can practically see him sitting at his keyboards and performing the tracks. A must for true fans of the movie.
