Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

While Steven Spielberg's sci-fi detective thriller Minority Report revolves around the intriguing premise of future cops arresting criminals before their crimes, beneath its hi-tech veneer it begs a simple but infinitely powerful question: do we have the power to alter our own destiny? Coming on the heels of the director's posthumous collaboration with Stanley Kubrick, A.I., it also affords long-time Spielberg musical collaborator John Williams a rare back-to-back opportunity to construct a musical future-world. The composer's efforts here are largely a forceful departure from A.I.'s sparkling minimalist influences, employing an enduring cinematic cliché--that film future's often sound much like the works of early-20th-century modernist classical composers--that puts a compelling new spin on the ever slippery concept of post-modernism. If the cues here occasionally recall the jagged edges, dark corners and rhythmic fury of some of Jerry Goldsmith's best sci-fi scores, it's only a tribute to both legends' deep musical roots and preternatural scoring instincts. But make no mistake, this is pure Williams at his most compelling, employing his full arsenal of technique and always masterful use of colour to construct a new genre--call it "future noir"--from inspirations as diverse as Bartók, Ligeti, Penderecki, Webern and Schoenberg. Like Herrmann's suspenseful scores for Hitchcock (one of the film's intentional musical touchstones) there may be nary a memorable melody in it, but it's a riveting--and occasionally harrowing--listen from opening bars to its final, minimalist-tinged string flourishes.--Jerry McCulley

3.0 out of 5 stars Good soundtrack, but the movie has more 30 Aug 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This movie had a great feel to it - not just the visuals, but some gorgeous music playing in the background.
In fact, much of the music is not so good to listen to on its own because it suffers what I call 'soundtrack syndrome' (gets boring at times, so as not to interfere with the on-screen action).
Eventually, I discovered the one piece of music that made me like this movie more than it really deserves... unfortunately, the piece that really blew me away isn't on the CD (as mentioned in helenearth's review, playing early on when they're sorting the images).
If you like that music, then like me, you've fallen for Schubert's unfinished Syphony No. 8 (first movement).
My advice: buy a Schubert recording, not the rip-off Hollywood-priced soundtrack CD. No offence to John Williams, but it should have ALL the good music from the movie, cost half the price, or be included with the (already expensive) DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great FIlm - Great Soundtrack! 31 July 2002
Format:Audio CD
When I first heard the music to Minority Report, at the cinema, I thought I just had to buy the OST to listen to the score in full. And it was worth it! The music takes you on a journey through Anderton's escape, anguish and emotional turmoil. The combination of orchestra and synthesizers give some tracks an eerie yet appropriate feel whereas other like 'Sean's theme' draw you into Anderton's depression and despair over his son. The only disappointment is the piece of music that Anderton sorts the pre-visions to. Shame that one isn't on there but otherwise a beautiful score.

5.0 out of 5 stars The masterful John Williams at his finest 30 Dec 2012
Format:Audio CD
It is so rare nowadays to hear film soundtracks to have such orchestral fluency, poise, sophistication and craft as the Minority Report score. The masterful skill of John Williams is greatly showcased in this score, and making this the OST a great listen as standalone suite of symphonic masterpiece.

The recording quality itself is great. Beautiful soundstage, balance and color provided you listen on good speakers or headphones though a good source. Great performance from the orchestra. There are occasional noises and interference, but they are very faint.

The music is dark, thrilling, and exciting. John Williams managed to make the score great ambitions, fully of avant-garde techniques, wonderful orchestration at the same time keeping the poise and emotion that his music is known for, making the music greatly acceptable to a wide audience.

A absolutely fantastic score, of pure symphonic genius.

4.0 out of 5 stars Class 9 May 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Another work of art from John Williams. However, not on a par with his more famous masterpieces. Lots of fast paced stuff that takes me back into the movie. Not the most relaxing of albums, but it's relevant to the film of course.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superbly chilling and exciting 8 Aug 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been studying film scores for a long time now and John Williams has created yet another masterpiece of a film score. The rhythmically-involving main theme is heard in many tracks, and the harmonic language in 'Sean and Lara' never fails to send a shiver down my spine. Wonderfully orchestrated and exciting writing. It's hard to find soundtracks nowadays that don't fall into the trap of dependency upon the picture itself, but John Williams' soundtracks never fail to amaze.
