As a musical composition, even outside the film, the "Jurassic Park" soundtrack may be the best film score ever made. John Williams finds a magical tone like his "E.T" and "Hook", mixes in the awe of his "Close Encounters", and amplifies the effect to create a truly great collection of themes and cues. The main theme is classic and gives a real sense of awe and wonder (much like the vision of dinosaurs bring in the film). This theme is enough to make the score great all by itself, but the "Jurassic Park" score contains a variety of small themes, each original and excellent in its own right. The first tense, action cue, "Incident At Isla Nublar" is a masterpiece for suspense and drama. Other cues, like "Hatching Baby Raptor" and "My Friend, The Brachiosaurus" introduce small, but beautiful themes that stand on their own.
Some film scores work well within their movies, but do not make easy listening in the living room. The "Jurassic Park" soundtrack, with the exceptions of some brief action cues, provides all-around great music for any mood. Place this powerful piece next to your favorite classical CDs.

(. . .)I declare, to date, that Jurassic Park stands as John Williams' greatest accomplishment in thematic material. I remember exiting the theatre, swept by images of dinosaurs, and for the first time in my life, humming the tune to the background music. It is beautiful, it is subtle, it so greatly personifies the dionsaurs by evoking their simplicity and the terrifying horror of mankind. It is a miracle that this works so perfectly, since Williams almost defies the rules of film scoring with this album.
Every track is listenable and gorgeous: 2, 4, 7, and 16 show the theme in all of its development, and everytime it is a staggering experience; 6 and 12 have that innocence Williams so successfully evoked in ET; 8 is an absolutely amazing undertheme; and the action cues successfully remain unique at all times and are never harsh enough to become unlistenable. In short, this score is a perfect listen from beginning to end, without rest, always with new thematic material and the developed main thematic material coexisting to form a wonderful experience.
I would recommend this film score to anyone with even the slightest interest in orchestral music or film scores. It stands out as one of William's greatest efforts to date and, my personal favorite theme of all time. It compliments the movie superbly, and I stand firmly in the belief that its absence would have made the film a failure: it worked THAT well, it was THAT powerful. This is the quintessential Must-Have Film Score!

This is one of John William's best. The only flaw is the strange order that the tracks are in. After consulting Wikipedia's very helpful article on the Jurassic Park soundtrack, I can recommend the following re-ordering of the tracks, for an experience of the music in the order it appeared in the film... (note: I expanded the track titles according to their original names from the screenplay)

1. Opening Titles
2. Journey To The Island (To the Island & The Entrance of the Park)
3. Theme From Jurassic Park (The Dinosaurs)
4. Hatching Baby Raptor (& Eggs in the Forest)
5. Jurassic Park Gate
6. Eye To Eye (& Goat Bait & Preparing to Meet the Monster)
7. Dennis Steals The Embryo
8. Incident At Isla Nublar (& The Falling Car)
9. A Tree For My Bed
10. Remembering Petticoat Lane
11. My Friend, The Brachiosaurus
12. High-Wire Stunts
13. The Raptor Attack (Into the Kitchen)
14. T-Rex Rescue & Finale (& March Past the Kitchen Utensils)
15. Welcome To Jurassic Park (End Credits)
16. End Credits (final section)

Listening to the CD in this order makes the experience of listening to this already AWESOME soundtrack perfect.

If you love the movie, you'll enjoy this soundtrack. It has ALL the excitement and wonder, straight from the Jurassic Park film. John Williams has talent for story telling with music, and this remarkable collection shows his expertise in composing. All sixteen tracks are a complete roller coaster ride of emotion. Sometimes when I listen to track number 7, Welcome to Jurassic Park, the piano solo will make me teary eyed, or I'll get goose bumps when the the whole orchestra comes alive with the JP theme. Other memorable tracks that have the same effect are Journey To The Island, Dennis Steals The Embryo, High-Wire Stunts and the T-Rex Rescue & Finale. Beyond a doubt, this CD is worth spending money on.

John Williams has really outdone himself with this CD. Each track takes you deeper and deeper into a world where dinosaurs reign. Each track is different and original and never fails to lift you from your seat. The Jurassic Park theme particularily soars with majesty and triumph. This CD really is a must have. I recieved it when the movie first came out and I still listen to it. I bring it everywhere. It is one of my most treasured CDs. Listen to it and you will see how truly wonderful it is.

Who can ever forget that first majestic shot of a helicopter soaring into the interior of the lush tropical island which contained Jurassic Park? The image itself was impressive, but it was John William's breathtaking music which really drove the experience home for me. The new Star Wars film notwithstanding, this is probably Williams' best-known score of the 90s, and it ranks right up there with his all-time greats. Every track on this album contributes something new, from the mysterious opening "Incident on Isla Nublar" to the tense, tightly-written action cues which dominate the second half. The frightening four-note motif of the raptors is particularly effective, and the majestic main theme, which subtly merges orchestra and choir, is one for the books. Williams' has the amazing ability to create a different musical signature for every major film he scores, and Jurassic Park is one of his most artful.
