Alexander Courage may have given the sprawling Star Trek franchise its signature musical fanfare, but for two decades it's been composer Jerry Goldsmith who's periodically infused the film and TV cycles with their crucial musical heart and soul or, as in the case of this rousing masterwork, their fire and fury. Giving nearly free reign to his notably modernist muse, the veteran has turned in a dark and driving orchestral maelstrom that's relieved only by its edgy, occasionally synth-burnished passages of alien intrigue and mounting suspense. Underpinned by bracing blasts of massive brass worthy of Bernard Herrmann and powered by Goldsmith's passionate sense of drama and mastery of orchestral color and dynamics, it's a score that not only ranks among the best of the imposing Trek musical catalog, but certainly one of the composer's most accomplished sci-fi scores of the last 20 years. --Jerry McCulley

Jerry Goldsmith returns to Trek for yet another spectacular soundtrack release. The score is haunting and atmospheric, mixing in classic Trek themes (two especially recognisable in the tracks "Repairs" and "The Scorpion) with new ideas and themes.
This is the best Trek soundtrack I've heard in a long time, it's sweeping and melodic, and has so many little winks at the audience from Star Trek: The Motion Picture (the little "Enterprise theme" moments that everyone recognises from Trek) right up to First Contact (listen to "My Right Arm") that are just awesome. The Main Title is surprisingly short and very unexpected. Normally, the film opens straight out with the little Trek fanfare, but Goldsmith plays with our expectations, cutting it right down to only a few seconds before delving back into the mysterious "Remus" track. The End Title is much as expectations, but that little snippet of "Blue Skies" leading us in is nothing short of genius. This is my second favourite track on the album (my favourite being "My Right Arm"), and it perfectly mixes the traditional Trek themes with the new, more mature and disturbing Nemesis themes.
After the slight disappointment that was the "Enterprise" score release, the Trek soundtracks have a new hero. I would place this joint second in my favourites, next to First Contact, and right behind Wrath of Khan.

Upon hearing that Jerry Goldsmith was to score the latest installment in the never ending Star Trek movie franchise, I was skeptical because the quality of his scores have gone down significally in the past few years.
However, I'm delighted to say that the old mans still got it in him... this soundtrack is truly amazing.
Right from the start, we are greeted with the traditional Star Trek fanfare but the music then evolves into a militeristic tone to reflect the dark Reman homeworld and Romulus. Once the very short theme is over the soundtrack just keeps on evolving, first we get "The Box" which uses some unique melody's, then My Right Arm plays the well known "Picard Theme" which was first heard in First Contact.
The next few tracks are generally quiet, except for Odds and Ends, which treats us to a truly unique peice - a mixture of Dr Who style synthesized effects, and Insurrection Action theme.
Once we reach track 8, this is where the fun begins. Goldsmith incorporates everything that made, The Motion Picture, The Final Frontier and First Contact great scores and makes them even better by inserting the very dark and heavy "Reman" theme. This continues right up until Final Flight (The grand action finale so to speak).. but before this grand finale, Goldsmith shows more of his unique abilities by mixing action music with an almost "Asian/Indian" musical sound.
The End credits have the usual TNG fanfare, but we are then greeted with a new peice of music which is very emotional! (Be Warned).
This is worth every penny!, and I highly reccomend it. As this is the best Trek score since Star Trek V.

Jerry Goldsmith has now scored exactly half of the Star Trek films and each one is a treasure in itself. His latest effort, "Nemesis," builds nicely on themes established in "The Motion Picture," "The Final Frontier," "First Contact," and "Insurrection" and blends them into a dark and driving original score. I can not wait to hear how this score plays in the theatre.
Goldsmith sets the audience up for a different listening experience in the first track by cleverly cutting off his familar arrangement of Alexander Courage's fanfare with the heavy "Remus" theme. Many of the tracks contain an almost military pulse to them (Think "Empire Strikes Back"), but there's also plenty of reflective sentiment here. Just listen to the tracks "My Right Arm," "Repairs," "Ideals" or "A New Friend." The classic main theme makes quite a few appearences, always a welcome touch.
A nice highlight of the score is that Goldsmith has at long last managed to combine the orchesteral and electronic elements so that the electronic pulses don't overpower (As in "The Motion Picture") or seem out of place (As in "Insurrection"). Though the earlier tracks make the most use of the electronic instruments, the delicate balance is maintained throughout. Goldsmith seamlessly weaves the different sounds. The real treat of the album is the final track, "A New Ending." Begining with a lovely and simple qoute from Irving Berlin's famous "Blue Skies," a very traditonal orchestration of the main theme then bookends probably the best piece of music on the album. It is a beautiful new piece that closes the album nicely with a great sense of dignity...

I've been waiting for a complete release of this score since the movie came out. Now, Jerry Goldsmith's entire score gets the release it deserves. This special release contains the entire score on 2 CDs plus alternate music cues. Any Star Trek fan would be crazy to pass up on this.
