There's not much in the way of surprises in Jerry Goldsmith's fourth score for the Star Trek feature-film cycle (and second for the Next Generation incarnation), which isn't to say it's not a finely crafted piece of robust, action-adventure boilerplate. Unfortunately, the genre has come to rely on an orchestral palette that's about as subtle as a Klingon temper tantrum; divorced from its striking images and spectacular stunt sequences, it's often as inviting as Mahler on a Monday morning. Still, Goldsmith manages touches here that are as close to pastoral as the conventions allow, bookended by enough Wagnerian Sturm und Drang to push our Federation heroes on to victory once again. Goldsmith is responsible for some of the most inventive sci-fi and horror scores of the past 40 years (Planet of the Apes, the Omen trilogy, and The Twilight Zone among them), and the Trek cycle seems well enough entrenched for the producers to allow the composer at least as much adventure as they do the crew of the Enterprise. --Jerry McCulley

This soundtrack is great. I think this film has the best intro music for the title than any other Star Trek film. The start was much like Jerry's other Star Trek introductions, but then he twists it into something completely new. AWESOME! The main songs to highlight this soundtrack would be "New Sight" and "The Drones Attack". GREAT ACTION CUES AND MELODY THEMES! This score I listen to all the time. Here's the downside...The album is too short, only 45 min. And, the best song in the film is missing from the album, "The Holoship". Listen to the film when Data walks into the lake and you'll see what I mean. Still, I hope Jerry Goldsmith does the next Trek film due to come out in 2001. He is the greatest composer for the Next Generation, even though Dennis McCarthy did a great score to end the television show. Buy this, also buy Star Trek 1, and First Contact. ST5 has its good moments, buy it if you love his music. Happy listening!

Thematically Jerry Goldsmith doesn't have much here that is a substantial improvement over his brilliant score for "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" or the splendid score for "Star Trek: First Contact". Yet it is unquestionably his most pastoral, with a haunting theme for the peace-loving natives of the planet rescued by the USS Enterprise which sounds Brahmsian, almost Mahlerian, in its outlook. Without question, this is yet another elegant score composed by Jerry Goldsmith, which comes close to the musical heights attained by the first "Star Trek" score, and the scores for "Alien" and "Patton". Both Star Trek fans and cinematic music fans won't be disappointed with this CD.

I preferred this music to that in First Contact, and found it much more moving and satisfying. The whole score actually sounds better, due to orchestrations by Alexander Courage. There are far more diverse themes in this score than in First Contact- two themes for the Ba'ku planet, one for Data gone haywire, a special statement for Riker and the Enterprise and the rythmic, menacing piece for the Son'a. The synthesizer tones and sounds also make tracks like "The Riker Maneuver" fast paced and interesting. The 24-bit recording is almost totally noise free, and is best heard on a good system, in open air. The end credits version of the traditional Star Trek march is the definitive orchestration- and Goldsmith lowers the volume of the orchestra on the descending chords so that the brilliant solo trumpet can be heard. All in all, the very best that Goldsmith has to offer.

The movie that it's attached to was nothing special, but this soundtrack highlights what Jerry Goldsmith brought to Star Trek. Sweeping, heart-grabbing melodies and liberal use of synthesizers mixed with traditional orchestral elements. Insurrection marks perhaps his best use of overtly synthetic elements, and yet at the same time offers softer themes to represent the cliched pastoral innocence of the ageless farmer race the movie is about.

The expanded edition offers two versions of the climax; the second is longer and quite radically different. There's also a few bonus tracks in addition to the chronologically ordered score. It's not terribly expensive, and definitely a worthwhile addition for someone who likes Goldsmith's other Trek scores.

I've been waiting a long time for Jerry Goldsmith's entire score to "Star Trek Insurrection" to come out because it's one of my favorite Star Trek scores. It has both beauty, suspense and action type music rolled into one score. Music not included in the 1998 GNP Crescendo CD is now available here. I ordered this CD as soon as it became available and I love it, 100%. I really miss Jerry Goldsmith and his musical expertise, he did it all, comedy, westerns, sci-fi, romance, action/thrillers and he did them all with greatness and every time I listen to a Goldsmith score, particularly this one, it's easy to hear why he was one of the most versatile and definitely one of the top five best composers Hollywood ever had. I can't recommend this CD enough, get it while it's hot.

After a successful score to Star Trek: First Contact, Jerry Goldsmith returns once again scoring his fourth Star Trek film, Star Trek: Insurrection, which is just as good as First Contact. "Ba'ku Village" opens with Alexander Courage's classic Star Trek fanfare, which segues into Goldsmith's new theme for the film which is a soft melody for strings, harps, and flutes. This theme occurs again in full form in "Children's Story", "The Healing Process", "New Sight", and the grand finale "End Credits". Goldsmith's action music, which is some of the best action music present in film scoring today is also featured. "Not Functioning" is a rip roaring action cue which features punctuating blasts of brass, dynamic strings, and electronic effects that has become a Goldsmith standard in Star Trek. Other great action cues are found in "The Drones Attack", "Riker Maneuver", and "No Threat" which move the score along in a driving fashion. As usual, Goldsmith puts all of the melodies together in "End Credits" to leave you with a positive feeling. A great score overall and one that is worthy of many more sequels.
