On the down side, some major flaws: first, this CD is way too short, at just some 30 min ! That leaves more than 40 min. unused on the CD. Besides, extremely good tracks from the film aren't included at all (such as Carmen's first flight), and the last track on the CD, "Into It" doesn't fit at all with the rest, it's completely out of place, different 'experimental' style, horrible vocals, nearly cacophonic, a real nuisance, always to be skipped while playing the CD.
In conclusion: Extremely good soundtrack, both musically and technically, but I can't understand why "Into it" was included, I can't understand why other magnificent tracks weren't, and filling just 30 min of a 74 min CD from a 2-hour long soundtrack is on the verge of being a fraud. Unforgivable.
Firing off with the Fed Net March the CD gets striaght into the action with track two and three featuring the action of the KLendathu Drop and the Roger Young's escape from the Asteroid. Both encompassing some very intense fast paced orchestral tracks, frentic string writing and bombastic brass.
Further tracks get a little weird and wonderful like Tango Urilla as the troops home in on the beaten outpost, and frenetic once again like Bugs! when the enemy attacks enmass.
With another superb roller coaster track, the destruction of the Roger Young, we then move to the latter part of the film with the eerie Brainbug and the rousing end to the film in They Will Win. Zoe Poledouris's Into It bookends the CD and whilst its certianly different it isn't quite as good as the full blown orchestral stuff that her father did.
Music missing includes the transport to the Roger Young and a about 20 odd minutes here and there. Reason, quite simply the reuse fee on this one was huge, Varese had their work cut releasing this much. However what you get is pretty damn good and one of Poledouris's finest efforts. Enjoy.
