2.0 out of 5 stars OK, but . . . 1 Sep 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having all of the other complete/expanded sound tracks I had to get this, but . . .

Musically it's actually not that good. I wasn't 100% sure before I bought it, but now I am!

The CD production, cover notes, extras, etc are great: it's a quality item (and very interesting to hear what was nearly the opening theme tune). However Leonard Rosenman's music just doesn't do it for me. I think the fact that the main theme is virtually identical to the one he composed and used for the animated movie version of the Lord of The Rings is what really gets to me - the music's not that good and yet he had the cheek to get away with it twice!

High-light: the punk tune by Kirk Thatcher.
Low-light: that jazz is apparently the best way to represent mid 80's LA (Angels and ministers of grace defend us!).

It's a lot of money to spend on a below average sound track that probably only appeals because it's Star Trek. Only for the completists out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great score for Star Trek 24 Feb 2012
By langleybcguy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This score is a GREAT improvement on the score released in 1986, which was obviously limited due to the restrictions on vinyl. In addition, it was around this time frame that soundtracks (even from such blockbuster films as 'Return of the Jedi' 3 years before) were seen as a market risk and subject to limited release (if they were released at all). This one is THE complete score, presented in chronological order. In addition, some unused cues and the original written music from the San Francisco bus scene (when Spock puts the Spock-hold on an obnoxious punk, knocking him out and shutting off his ghetto blaster - to the delight of the passengers). A lot of the music surrounding the sinister probe is also presented, as well as 2 sequences of 'The Whaler', when the 'Bounty' (the Bird of Prey) decloaks over the whaling ship as it closes in on the whales, sending the crew into a panic. A second version of the 'Main Title' and 'Crash/Whale Fugue' - when the Bounty comes down and the whales send their signal to the sinister probe, which heads away - are also presented.

I suspect this great limited edition release will not last long; get it while it's available! The liner notes are superb at explaining the tracks, along with anecdotes from composer Rosenman, director Leonard Nimoy & punk song writer (and actor) Kirk Thatcher. This is a score that belongs in any Star Trek fan's collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much improved from 1986 21 Jan 2012
By J. Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I never liked the score for Star Trek IV. I thought it was too short and didn't seem to "fit" with other Treks. Well, I may have been too hasty. This has more cues than the original release. It's been cleaned up so the sound is excellent. There are a number of alternate tracks, etc. I absolutely adore the original main title and can't believe I've never heard this arrangement of the Alexander Courage theme. If Leonard Nimoy wanted to change the main title with the end title, then he should have played this fantastic version over the end credits! Although STIV is not my favorite film, it has some of the greatest Trek moments, especially the reveal of Enterprise-A. I get chills every time! And I had a huge lump in my throat when I saw it in 1986. I think the other extended versions of Treks 1-5 are better than this one. But this is a very enjoyable CD and for me that alternate main title alone is so worth it. As always, great liner notes by Jeff Bond. I hope they move on to The Undiscovered Country soon. I loved that one. I am glad there are fans of Trek music out there to keep it alive. I always thought that in addition to Shatner/Nimoy/Kelley and great writing, the music was an integral and overlooked part of Trek's success. I see myself appreciating this CD more and more with repeated listenings. Very good overall.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, the complete score...plus extras 14 Jan 2012
By Dr. Stuart Gitlow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Soundtrack releases are becoming, finally, better recognized as desirable works of music. In the 70s-90s, we had to deal with incomplete scores based upon the limitations of the LP. As a result, scores were cut in length and scissored together to fit each side of the album. They were then, for no good reason, re-released in their original form onto CD. So here, finally, about 25 years after the fact, we have Rosenman's complete score for ST IV including several alternate iterations, the original main title based upon Courage's original ST TOS theme, and an interesting extra or two. The CD is accompanied by an explanatory booklet, is available at a somewhat elevated price, and is a limited edition that you should probably grab the moment you have the chance as it won't be around for long. The total CD running time is nearly 73 minutes. The full score for the released picture runs about 40 minutes. Sound quality is very good. If you have the original album, this will still make a nice addition to your collection. If you don't have the original, don't bother; get this instead.
5.0 out of 5 stars Good voyage 27 Feb 2014

I really enjoyed this star trek film and the soundtrack is light hearted and funny like the film. I now own most of the Star Trek feature film soundtracks, many ordered from Amazon. I've only had this album for a few weeks but played it many a few times. Although I love the seriousness of the other Trek score, Star Trek 4 was a welcome change. It met my expectations.
