As fan of the scores by Goldsmith and Silvestri for the first and second part of this trilogy, I had great expectations for the work of Randy Edelman. The fact that his carreer has no real success ( except his participation to Trevor Jones' Last of the Mohicans and the well known theme from Dragon's Heart )affraid when his name was announced, but I bought this CD with some hope... and was not disapointed ! OK, he didn't make an epic theme full of percussions, but un lyrical adventure score, pursuing the evolution of the franchise's soundtrack that Silvestri started with tracks like "Sandcastles" or "Medjei Commanders" in Mummy Returns. Here, three great themes are making us travel throught the story : The main theme as theme for the O'Connell family is a well writted track that keep us in the adventure ambient, the second is more dramatic, sad but beautiful, with a asian-typed reprise called "Ancient China" and remain all allong the CD, and the love theme, most rattached to the sad theme. Developping them with talent, Randy Edelman make it to create a new ambient and a great score, sometimes romantic, sometimes full of action and dynamism ( Shangai Chase, Reign of Terror, etc). Maybe not the best soundtrack of the year - nore the best of the franchise - but he hasn't to be ashamed of : We already are immerged with the O'Connells, back in action ! And that's all the fun I was hoping for !

After watching this film on tv last night I was struck by the beauty of Helen Feng's voice. I searched and searched for more about her but only found this as a way to hear her again.
I hope she will make a cd and soon! I will buy it and surely others will as well. Haunting voice!! beautiful song.

Randy Edelman's soundtrack for 'The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor', is comparable to the scores by Jerry Goldsmith & Alan Silvestri for 'The Mummy' and 'The Mummy Returns', respectively. His score stands on its own; it has some of the bombastic & bellicose characteristics of Silvestri's previous scores for films, most notably in the main title, 'A Call to Adventure'. Tracks such as 'The Emperor Vs. Zi Yuan' and 'Rick & Evy in Battle' also bear this out. Overall, Edelman's score is quite solid. Recommended for fans of the series and this film.

The soundtrack is a great, rousing theme that is as exciting as the movie. It differs from the previous Mummy Soundtracks in that there is less of the jarring, spooky music and more of the heroic, thematic that is so appealing. It is reminiscent of Indiana Jones or Lord of the Rings and just as exciting. The vocal track at the end fits in perfectly with the rest of the theme, too. Highly recommended if you like 'heroic' soundtracks.

The title for the review says more than you think. After the first time listening to this soundtrack, I was pleasantly surprised with it. Randy Edelman did a great job with this score. The theme from the mummy three is very "superhero theme like." The score overall, though, is adapted to fit the new location of China. I have a respect for the way that he made this score, because like Silvestri before him, he made the themes his own. Each soundtrack is different, and this one is fairly good overall, and is the second best of the soundtrack trilogy. The soundtrack has various peices to fit all the different parts of the movie. I give it four stars for it's new spin on the series, but it is not one of my absolute favorites, even though it is great.

I'm not a huge fan of Edelman's (I loved his work on Ghostbusters 2, though), but his main theme for this movie is just so darn catchy, I find myself humming it often. The action cues aren't as strong, but definitely show some structure. Too bad most of his work was replaced in the actual movie. That makes this score an odd listening experience, and 30 tracks is way too many, but the main theme alone is worth the price, in my opinion.

There have now been three incarnations of The Mummy in what has become a small film franchise (three films, a movie spin-off, and theme park rides) each with a different composer, and surprisingly, following Jerry Goldsmith's fine lead and Alan Silvestri's excellent sequel, each have been different and quite good including the newest, Randy Edelman's score for Rob Cohen's The Mummy, Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. The soundtrack album begins with Edelman's "call to adventure" theme which sets the stage for the romp to come, but then goes immediately to what is initially a somber and sorrowful theme for solo cello (Anthony Pleeth) with distinct Chinese undertones (actually all of Edelman's Asian/Chinese themes and motifs work very well). This theme becomes the musical foundation for much of the rest of what is really a solid score, at times nearly tragic, but also quite grand and again adventurous (note composer Edelman on piano) with a couple of comical twists and a tribute or two to other films and composers. Another theme/motif for the Dragon Emperor emerges often juxtaposed with the adventure theme and/or the main Chinese theme. This is a much more dynamic score than expected and works wonderfully well on this recording (note that bits and pieces have appeared during the various broadcasts of the Bejing Olympics...of course Edelman is providing other music for this event). Oddly, it seems almost muted on the screen at times, and that is too bad. The 1940s style vocal (by Helen Feng) included at the end is now expected, but in this case is actually part of the film, and is serviceable. Well produced by Varese with solid packaging.
