5.0 out of 5 stars Revolutionary and daring!!! 20 April 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I'm a great fan of the biggy soundtrack scorers like John Williams, James Horner, Jerry Goldsmith etc. But this soundtrack by Carmine Coppola is wonderful. I've enjoyed this unusual one very much over the years. Carmine broke away from the norms of scoring and put his own personal stamp of individuality on it. The cue where Willard walks down the temple steps after killing Kurtz is eery and very very effective (the track is called "finale" on this release i think). Its one of my favourite sequences in scoring. I cant imagine an orchestra soundtrack having anywhere near the right effect as this did. Brooding power and depressive horror all in one. It somehow felt exactly right for the movie. Buy this CD or miss out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best soundtrack ever 15 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I must recommend this for all fans of Apocalypse Now Redux. This disc includes all soundtracks from the Redux version, including "Cleans Funeral" which is a personal favorite.
The disc came with a nice slipover and is quality all over. Buy it!

This is my favourite film, and now this is my favourite soundtrack. If you love the film, you'll love the atmosphere that this brings to your stereo on a warm summers night. It completes the Apocalypse Now Redux package. Just by the thing!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Like Napalm in the Morning 30 July 2003
By Shane K. Bernard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is an excellent CD and one that I've wanted for many years. I, like others who've reviewed the "Redux" CD, once had the soundtrack from the _original_ version of the movie, which was basically the entire movie, complete with all dialogue. I liked that "soundtrack," but what I really wanted was _only_ the music, without dialogue, because if I really wanted the dialogue I'd just as soon watch the movie. Fortunately, the "Redux" CD does indeed have _only_ the music, which is eerily beautiful and haunting. I should point out to potential buyers, as I didn't learn this until I actually listened to the CD, that the version of The Doors' "The End" is actually the interesting remix heard in the movie, complete with synthesizer enhancements, chirping jungle crickets, and Jim Morrison's Oedipal vulgarities brought to the surface, instead of buried under the instrumentation as on The Doors original recording (in which the vulgarities can barely be heard). "Suzie Q" sounds to me an awful lot like the version in the movie, though I'm unsure it's exactly the same; it doesn't matter, it's so darn close. What's really nifty is the intro and conclusion of "Suzie Q," which contains the synthesizer effects heard in the movie as a sort of musical segway. In short, if you love "Apocalypse Now," and what you want is _the music_ from the movie, this CD is perfect. To my ears, the music doesn't sound dated at all; it could've been done yesterday for a new movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars eerie and forboding... 17 Dec 2001
By Darin Campbell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've noticed some griping that this new version of the soundtrack does not contain dialogue, unlike the original 2 disc version that came out originally. well, you can't please everybody. one of my other favourite soundtracks, "Blade Runner" often gets slagged in reviews because it contains some dialogue, which some people find intrusive. if you want to hear the dialogue, watch the movie. this disc is about the music, which is as dark and forbidding as any synth music i've heard, perfectly evoking the chaos and hellish atmosphere shown on screen. track seven, "nung river" has a particularly sinister feel, making that trip up river feel inexorable. "do lung" has a nightmarish carnival sound to it, appropriate to the scene's images of a place spiralling out of control. overall, if you like dark, atmospheric soundtrack music, (it is also very rhythmic) you will enjoy this, even if you haven't seen the movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Previously Missing 10 Aug 2001
By "carcosa@gol.com" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have yet to see the Redux as it hasn't opened in Tokyo but I was able to obtain the soundtrack. I have been a big fan for 20+ years of both the movie and the original soundtrack. Love it or hate it, Coppola (and the soundtrack) captured the zeitgeist of that war and its clash of cultures. The original soundtrack follows the movie with audio scenes taken directly from it together with Willard's running dialogue -- in the Redux soundtrack these are gone. I cannot rate the new material but can comment on track numbers 11 and 17. Track 11 is titled _Clean's Funeral_ and is billed as "previously unreleased". In fact, a version of it did appear on the original soundtrack as _Clean's Death_ (Disc Two, Track 3 of the "Definitive Edition"). The original soundtrack version was very beautiful with the inclusion of female vocals, the Redux version lacks this and comes off as rather antiseptic with synthesizer and trumpet only. Track 17 is a gem, entitled _Finale_, and includes the music from the final scene of the movie which was previously missing, it not being included in the original soundtrack. This scene (to me) is the most powerful of the entire movie and the music accompanying it equally so -- it alone being worth the price of the CD. The Redux soundtrack is worthy of your money and attention, my only complaint being that certain tracks were shortened and others did not blend well together.

3.0 out of 5 stars Stil Strange After All These Years 14 May 2008
By J. Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The soundtrack to "Apocalypse Now" has probably undergone as much remixing, remastering, revising and restoring as the film it's derived from. According to the liner notes, director Francis Ford Coppola originally approached Japanese composer Isao Tomita to do an all-electronic score for his epic Vietnam film. But due to prior commitments and the laborious nature of his work, that was impossible. Instead, he collaborated with his father Carmine on a symphonic score that would then be played into the latest (for 1979) synthesizers. With additional sounds courtesy of the Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Wagner, and U.S. Army helicopters. Mickey Hart of the Grateful Dead also contributed various percussion effects that eventually became an album of its own ("The Apocalypse Now Sessions"). The result is music just as strange and hypnotic as the movie. The Doors got a major career revival thanks to this film and the version of "The End" here gives you a true sense of the journey you, as a listener, are about to undertake. Coppola remixes the original song with electronically treated sounds of helicopters flying across your speakers, jungle crickets and generous use of echo. The "Redux" version pares everything down to the music alone, adding 2 tracks not on the original double album ("Love Theme" from the French Plantation sequence, and "Clean's Funeral") But the MAJOR drawback here is the absence of Martin Sheen's spooky narration from the film that really underscored everything happening and gave you a better context as to where you were in the film's story. I can only imagine what Coppola could do with the samplers and computers of today. But knowing Francis, as we read this he's probably in his underground bunker/wine cellar hunkered over a KEM editing machine with Hendrix on in the background preparing the "absolute final cut" (for now) of "Apocalypse Now".

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Bold and Unique Score 22 Nov 2009
By snowleopard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This was a bold soundtrack, for a very bold film. I'm not going to try to review it's merit as much as explain the thought processes to what went into what you hear, and the differences between the two soundtracks.

This soundtrack contains some of the songs from the film, plus the full score by Carmine Coppola. It also contains almost none of the dialog and sound effects that are on the original score put together by multi-Oscar winner Walter Murch. That soundtrack could prehaps be considered a narrative, like listening to the film, and it's interesting owning them both, and listening to both.

As to the score itself, Francis Coppola originally asked Isao Tomita to score the film with his synthesized orchestral sound. Synthesizers had started to find a use in film scoring at the time, other than just a fad with composers such as Gil Melle, Giorgio Moroder, Vangelis. However, Tomita passed, and in stepped Coppola's father, Carmine, known mostly for creating orchestral scores. Well, Carmine stepped up to the task, and scored the film as if he were writing for an orchestra, but hired the likes of Patrick Gleeson as a "master synthesist", Nyle Steiner to play his EVI and EWI wind synthesizers (best heard on Chef's Death and Voyage), Bernard Krause, Shirley Walker, Ed Goldfarb, Don Preston, Mickey Hart and Airto Moreina to aid with percussion, plus actual choirs, Randy Hansen playing guitar, and Carmine himself playing flute. The blend is actually a little dated now, especially if you're used to hearing mock orchestration, and electronic/orchestral blended scores by people like Hans Zimmer or James Horner, etc. But for what it is, and the time it created, it does contain some very beautiful passages that fit the film perfectly, almost like a time capsule, and one of the most bold and full electronic scores ever, certainly for that time.
