4.0 out of 5 stars As stated great score Ltd Ed of 10k 8 July 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Just to alert potential buyers, this is limited to 10,000 copies. So likely to be around for awhile yet.
Well worth the upgrade in both sound quality and expanded tracks.

Jerry Goldmsith was, in my view, one of the most influential film score composers of the 20th century. It's more than likely you will have heard his music somewhere and be instantly able to recognise it when it's played back to you. This is true of Star Trek First Contact. While this set isn't as expansive as some of the other sets in the expanded Star Trek score line, hearing it in full form - from the triumphant "First Contact" theme to the spooky "Borg" theme - is simply a delight. A much-loved score from a much-missed composer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Must have CD for the trekkies out there 1 Sep 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having all of the other complete/expanded sound tracks and being a big Jerry Goldsmith fan I had to get this . . . and I'm glad I did.

The CD production, cover notes, extras, etc are OK (not as good as those produced for ST 1-6). Not much in the way of interesting extras, but the sound track itself is really good. Very interesting to see what contribution Joel Goldsmith made to the soundtrack (probably more that you thought).

High-light: Track 24: Flight of the Phoenix
Low-light: CD notes not as comprehensive/interesting as other Star Trek issues.

Not buying it is futile . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars The way all soundtracks should be done 26 April 2012
By ebinrock - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is an absolutely beautiful score written and composed by Jerry Goldsmith and his son Joel Goldsmith. (Time constraints kept Jerry from scoring the whole thing.) I'm glad this is a COMPLETE score to the film - the way all soundtrack CD's ought to be done. There was some really poignant and powerful musical cues during some pivotal scenes, such as "Not Again" and "Flight of the Phoenix", that should have been included on the original 1996 CD, but weren't. I'm a little disappointed that source music such as "Ooby Dooby" by Roy Orbison and "Magic Carpet Ride" by Steppenwolf are not included here, otherwise I could have ditched my original 1996 release. GNP Crescendo told me in an email that the licensing costs would have upped the price, but I don't care. I also would have liked to have the Berlioz piece Picard listens to in his quarters, as well as the source music played in the holodeck nightclub scene. Oh well. Still an excellent, comprehensive CD. Before ever buying a soundtrack CD (especially one with a traditional orchestral score), check first with Film Score Monthly [...] and Screen Archives Entertainment [...], as they're the ones who continually release exclusive complete score CD's like this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Assimilation Complete 8 May 2012
By SB Crumb42 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
When I received, and read, and listened to, and read some more (details below) with the current complete version of the score soundtrack to Star Trek [8]: First Contact, I had to re-evaluate and drop my previous review of the old soundtrack, which I posted only a few weeks before this new edition was released.

The score itself is a classic, a favorite of many Trekkers and Goldsmith fans, so I almost don't have to go into detail. This does have the complete score. (some of it done with the help of son Joel Goldsmith, a good composer in his own right.) Sure, there is none of the pop/source music this time, but who really needs it? (Sure, I'll miss Steppenwolf, but that's what greatest hits albums and MP3s n' such are for.) The album also has three alternate cues, including a nice "clean" version of the stirring main title, with only the subtlest of differences, and no harsh interrupting lead-in to the Borg flashback-nightmare intro. (Except for a very muted version of the opening Borg note.)

The liner notes for this are rather unusual. They are very in-depth and fascinating, analyzing composer Goldsmith's continuing thru-line and patterns with all of his Trek movie scores, how this movie uses themes and patterns from classic crew movies 1 and even 5, and some brief mentions of how these themes continue into the rest of the TNG movies. The TMP/TNG march, the Trek V quest motive, the first contact theme, and themes for the Borg, the Klingons and the Vulcans are all discussed. . . . . And then it stops dead, prompting you to go to the GNP Crescendo website to get the rest of the story, namely, the actual track-by-track analysis. Easy enough to get to right now, but I wonder how if those extra notes will still be up on the web next year or so.....

How much of a limited edition is this album? -- 'Tis hard to tell yet ; only time and avaliability and sellers' (scalpers'?) prices will tell.....

4.0 out of 5 stars In its present form as a limited edition release this still remains 21 April 2012
By Lou B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Jerry Goldsmith's finest music score of the Next Generation feature films but we must wait until his last two entries (Insurrection and Nemesis) are released in the
same manner to see if my contention holds true.
This score is certainly his third best for the Star Trek films (I wish he'd done all of them) and is certainly worth purchasing if you're a fan of the composer as I
am and this album contains all of the underscore provided by the veteran composer and his son Joel Goldsmith. It makes for an interesting as well as an enjoyable listen as one can gauge the compositional talents of the son with that of the father
and is the only time they worked together on a film to this degree.
The Main Title is an excellent and noble piece played beautifully by French horns and is an all-new composition which marks the first time Goldsmith doesn't utilize his more famous fanfare from the first film (its not heard until the end) and he would create new themes for his final two Trek scores as well. The original album was a respectful representation of the score but marred badly by the inclusion of two songs and an omission of several outstanding cues all of which is corrected on this release.
The main highlight is the "Flight of the Phoenix" which was composed by his son and is his best contribution to the score and I thought it was written by Goldsmith
himself that's how good it is. I've always said that many of Goldsmith's scores need
to be released in complete form so one can truly appreciate how Goldsmith develops
his musical ideas and this album proves this point even further.
As the composer was still working on his great score to "The Ghost and the Darkness" at the time (talk about another score that should be released complete!)
he needed to help to finish "First Contact" and called upon his son and supplied him with which scenes to score. Even though his son supplied some very good music here I wish Goldsmith were given more time to write the complete score solely on his
own as I believe the music would have been even greater---and Goldsmith made no sec-
ret of the fact that he enjoyed scoring the "Star Trek" films.
But don't misunderstand, this is still an exceedingly fine musical score worth having.

Jerry Goldsmith was a brilliant man and his compilation for First Contact is amazing. It captures the various emotions of the movie perfectly

By Chris Roth - Published on Amazon.com

To make a long story short,there to me is not much different than the first soundtrack that came out.There are few tracks that are expanded,the cd for me sounds better than the previous soundtrack.I still would recommend this soundtrack if you are a fan of this particular movie or,and a Jerry Goldsmith fan.
