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.
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!
