Thankfully, Jerry Goldsmith's contribution to The Mummy isn't all bombast. In fact, the composer behind such varied scores as The Omen, Chinatown, and Planet of the Apes throws a little bit of everything into The Mummy's sonic stew and turns in a semi-memorable score that never seems to slow down for too long. Goldsmith weds swatches of Middle Eastern-sounding melodies into the primarily synth-driven score to good effect on such tracks as "Giza Port" and "The Caravan." Frenetic string and percussive passages in "Night Borders" and "Mumia Attack" are plenty tense, but also feature otherworldy sci-fi sound effects, while on "Rebirth" the sounds of synth'd voices make for an ethereal effect over the orchestrations. Mummified this score isn't, but clichéd it, unfortunately, is. --Jason Verlinde

Fans and students of film music were probably surprised this week with certain aspects of the Academy Awards nominations. First, John Williams' magnificent score for "Star Wars, Episode One, The Phantom Menace" was not nominated for best original score. And second, the Academy failed to recognize Jerry Goldsmith. Neither of the scores for "The 13th Warrior" or "The Mummy" was nominated, and that is too bad, especially in the latter case. Goldsmith's music for "The Mummy" came as a pleasant surprise. It equalled or surpassed some of his most notable work with adventure films, "The Wind and the Lion," "King Solomon's Mines," "Star Trek, First Contact." And as a soundtrack for an adventure movie, Goldsmith's score for "The Mummy" worked incredibly well. Moreover, it makes for an enjoyable soudtrack recording. Other reviews have lauded individual tracks adequately, but one complaint might be added. Music for the sandstorm and airplane scene including a noble brass flourish as the World War I flying ace and his plane sink into the sand is missing. There was certainly room on the disc for this cut, and the track was outstanding. The suggestion that a particulr score is one of Jerry Goldsmith's best should not be taken lighly, there are so many to consider, and so many that are simply grand. The score to "The Mummy" is a singular achievement, bravo!

When I first saw 'The Mummy' I instantly knew I had to have the CD. The music is very moving and the sense of awe that it gives still astounds me. Every song, every moment, you are are there, transported into the movie just by the music. If you even remotely like 'The Mummy' then the soundtrack is a definate must.

1999 was a busy year for the late great Goldsmith with him scoring three big movies that year. You'd think with such a busy schedule he'd switch into auto pilot and do what other successful composers do which is copy paste their music, but Goldsmith gave us a gem with each album and this one is no exception

The album starts off with "Imhotep" which starts off very mysteriously with an amazing use of strings and creepy vocal then switches to this loud bombastic piece for the amazing shot of old Egypt. I really love that piece because it captures the sense of awe that we the audience feel as we see this amazing shot in the movie. The choir at the 45 mark just gets me everytime I listen to it.

It's really hard to pick a highlight when it comes to a Goldsmith album but if I were forced to pick I'd probably go with "Imhotep", "Camel Race", "Rebirth" and "The Sand Volcano". The last 90 seconds of "Rebirth" is a blast to listen to because it's the great "Heroes March" theme in its full glory. I think it's for the scene when Rick fights the 12 Mummy Priests. "Camel Race" to me is the most fun track on the album. It's very light and makes you bop your head and tap your feet when you listen to it. "Sand Volcano" is the last piece on the album and what a fantastic piece it is. It starts in action mode then calms down. The best part of the track is the expansion of the love theme which accompanies the end credits to the movie. Goldsmith utilizes a solo trumpet towards the end that should explain to people why a lot of us think Goldsmith is the greatest film composer of all time.

Die hard fans of the late great master composer owe it to themselves to pick up this amazing soundtrack.

The UNIVERSAL label melts into the desert sun, and the camera pulls back across the vastness of the desert. The breathtaking beauty of the Egyption skyline is placed against a majestic, awkward plucking of strings, followed by menacing bellows of low cello. Choral voices begin chanting in a creepy flavor that forbodes of things to come. The camera retracts further to reveal a massive pyramid dotted with the screaching birds of the Middle East. Suddenly, your adrenaline surges ahead as Goldsmith tacks on an enormous explosion of drums in a rythmatic beat that blows the use of repetitive sound to a new level. Tolls, choir, strings, and, of course, the obnoxious beating of drums unfold into a continuous blend of blaring instruments that, when listened to on headphones, made me always break into a pleasent smile. The soundtrack to The Mummy is by far, a sweeping desert epic told, without words, but instead in rythmic chants and horns that captivate the soul of every young-at-heart. One of the beauties of the soundtrack is Goldsmith's unpresidented use of several themes in one piece to create a mosaic tapestry that, time and again, shatters the realm of single themes and crosses in a dream track that races along with the beating of the heart and the quickening of the pulse. If I were at the recording of this soundtrack, I would have had to sit down. The excitement and the utter surge of energy that is emitted in such tracks as IMHOTEP, THE CARAVAN, CAMEL RACE, and MUMIA ATTACK (which utilizes an amazing web of several independant drums beat in unison to create the illusion there was one guy with twelve arms playing it.Read more ›
