5.0 out of 5 stars Back to school for TITANIC fans... 26 Mar 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Fifteen years before the TITANIC score, a young James Horner produced one of the finest orchestral film scores ever recorded. Fitting seamlessly into director Nicholas Meyer's radical "Horatio Hornblower" re-invention of the ageing STAR TREK mythos, Horner's swashbuckling, romantic score announced his arrival as a major movie composer.
There are distinctly Russian influences in many of the melodies, not least the glorious main theme - but even better than the thematic arrangements are the tight and punchy action sequences, complimenting the choreographed special effects to produce some near-balletic cinematic sequences.
Much of Horner's later work (most noticeably ALIENS, COCOON, KRULL and ROCKETEER) is shamelessly lifted from this score, so there's plenty of familiarity here, even if you haven't seen THE WRATH OF KHAN. What you won't find are any of the more recent Horner signatures, like ethereal female vocals or celtic folk tunes. Oh, and Celine Dion is nowhere to be heard. Vintage Horner is so much better without them.

This soundtrack contains the best music of the Star Trek movies. The music of star trek is most remebered as Jerry Goldsmiths work however for the second movie James Horner did the honours. His mastery of the orchestra is unsurpassed and he sends a shiver up the spine of the audience during each piece of soundtrack. This soundtrack is a must buy for all Star Trek fans old and new, it has the ferocity of a borg attack and the mellowing quality of Risa.....

5.0 out of 5 stars A majestic score from the best start trek film 1 Feb 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Even though I'm not a trekkie I love this film a lot - and a big part of that is how the music fits in so perfectly well with the film. James Horner has really excelled himself from the majestic (Main Title), the sad (Spock), the freaky (Khans Pets), and the thundering Genesis Countdown. There are a few recurring themes - each one is not overused and has the right amount of variation.
Probably the only quibble I have with it s that Spocks lament should follow directly on after the Genesis Countdown in the running order creating a bit of a 'jump'.
Brings back the excitement of the film itself, unlike many other soundtracks (eg Batman) where the main theme is memorable and the rest can be forgotten.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome soundtrack 31 May 2013
Format:Audio CD
The movie versions of Star Trek were boosted with the music of James Horner.

Jerry Goldsmith did a fantastic score for Star Trek The Motion Picture, but James Horner picked up where he left off and created one of my favourite soundtracks.

If you are a fan of the series and love listening to film music, then this is a must in your collection.

Star Trek II is a fabulous film score.
