5.0 out of 5 stars Finally... and it was worth the wait! 1 Jun 2013
By J. Chambers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This isn't a movie review, but suffice to say that if I listed the ten movies I've seen the most number of times, Hoosiers would make the list. And finally, after more than a quarter of a century, the soundtrack has been released. It was well worth waiting for Jerry Goldsmith's brilliant music. The main title (track 2) that plays as Gene Hackman is driving to his new coaching job is pure magic. By the time he pulls into the parking lot at Hickory High School, you can almost believe that a time machine has transported you back to rural Indiana in 1951. And track 1 - the main theme from Hoosiers - is one of the most rousing anthems I've ever heard. This theme is also included as a part of track 17. (By the way, the thumping sounds are those of a basketball being bounced on a hardwood floor.)

The CD album includes an illustrated insert with a great behind-the-scenes look at the making of the movie, as well as the actual story the film was loosely based on.

I am soooo happy that we finally have the marvelous soundtrack to a classic movie. This is a must-have album for Hoosiers fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful Music 30 May 2013
By Hunyadi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have seen the movie Hoosiers countless times but listening to the isolated soundtrack is great! Jerry Goldsmith brought a tear of happiness to my eye: he has the ability to create great music and the perfect soundtrack to probably the greatest sports film of all time. Jerry Goldsmith has written a very emotional score that is powerful yet possesses a special touch that reflects the innocence of youth. The music compliments the film perfectly: hard work, discipline, and young men of the Hickory High School basketball team. The music is similar to the "Rudy Soundtrack" but is more heartfelt. This soundtrack is something special that stands out from other film scores. This CD is good for listening to while running or exercising. This is must have for fans of Jerry Goldsmith and excellent soundtracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best movie scores ever finally gets the treatment it deserves 10 Mar 2013
By Ken Devine - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I'm a big fan of movie scores, but few are up there higher than Hoosiers. While there are many cues from movies that are stirring or tear-inducing, none can make me consistently cry tears of happiness like Hoosiers can.

The music in this movie is the crux of the film's heart, soul, and emotion. It's paired so well with every other element in the film that it makes for the ultimate nostalgia listen. The music easily recalls scenes in the movie when it plays, taking me back to the triumph and glory of Hickory.

It's a wonder that it took so long for an official U.S. version of the score to be released, but better late than never! It feels amazing to finally be holding the full, polished product in my hands, knowing that all of Jerry Goldsmith's heartwarming score is intact. The previously missing cues properly flesh out the score and make you relive the movie with each listen. But they're not just there for filler -- they all add something.

Although I'll forever love the music from this movie, some of it naturally sounds dated, but not just because it was recorded almost 30 years ago. It's because some of the "cheesier" elements in the mix simply sound that way because of the electronic style of sound that Goldsmith employed. So there are times listening to the score where I think, "It would be awesome if this was rerecorded to sound a bit more modern."

Don't take any of that as a complaint, though. Goldsmith really hit gold here, and it's amazing to think he didn't actually win the Oscar for Hoosiers. This release is a proper and tribute of an album that will never get old listening to - even if it means there will be no dry eyes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jerry Goldsmith's Gold 7 Mar 2013
By Mikey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This has been one of my favorite Goldsmith scores since I first saw the movie as a kid. Unfortunately, the only release there has been previously was only a portion of the music. Jerry managed to make the tempo/beat sound like a bouncing basketball(always thought that was awesome). So glad they finally released the complete score. Be sure to check it out. It's worth it even if you have purchased the older release titled "Best Shot"
