5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Nostalgia 3 Nov 2008
Format:Audio CD
A brilliant list of mixed-paced music, featuring related tunes and themes. This is a must-buy for those who played the original game when it was first released; I have returned to it many times over the years, simply to hear the music in context. Such an experience never gets old.
Due to the rarity of the CD however, the prices do seem extraordinarily high, but for those people who still own the original game, the tracks can simply be downloaded by inserting the game into a PC disk drive, and using a media player of any sort to burn them to memory. A much cheaper alternative.
Climbing the Tower is an all-time favorite, and the rest of the tracks are on par. Hope you enjoy it as much as I have!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not bad but lacks variation 6 Sep 2001
Format:Audio CD
As far as game soundtracks go, this is not bad. The first track seems more suited to a kid's film, however. From then on, you get the general idea, a few good tracks, but then they just repeat themselves. The same tune crops up in nearly every track.
As I said, seeing as this is the soundtrack to an arcade game, it is not too bad, but I would have expected more from a performance by the Northwest Sinfonia. In conclusion, buy it if you collect game soundtracks, but really I don't think this was worth putting on CD. Buy the soundtrack to the film instead, that's great.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great CD 6 July 2001
By Andy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This soundtrack is one excellent CD. Michael Giacchino does a great job scoring this game. Usually when you think of "video game" music you think of the annoyingly synthesized tunes. But no, not here. This soundtrack is fully orchestrated by the Northwest Sinfonia. One thing that really struck me about this soundtrack is how Giacchino created different themes for each character in the game. From the playful wind and string instruments for the Compy to the rasping brass and pounding percussion for the dark primeval theme of the T-Rex.
I noticed that at the end of the disc that there are unlisted tracks. The last listed track is number 19 which is one of the Compy's themes. If you let your CD player keep playing after the Compy's theme is over, you'll hear a a few jungle-like sounding bits. They are mostly horn melodies, string and percussion rythms. I have no idea why they aren't listed on the CD or why they weren't used in the game. To me this are some of the best music on the soundtrack. After the jungle-like themes there is another song (still listed under Track 19). This doesn't really sound anything like what else is on the CD. It almost sounds like something you would hear at a football game, but it is still good. So don't shut your discman or CD player off after the listed music for Track 19 is over. You may have to wait about a minute (if you have a digital counter on your CD player, it should be about 3:11 when the music comes on) until the music starts up, but it is worth it. Trust me.
Michael Giacchino does an astounding job in following up to John Williams' score for the Jurassic Park films. None of the original film themes are displayed in this soundtrack, but it is still a good one. I suggest that if you are a fan of the music from the Jurassic Park films you get this CD. You won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hear the music without killing people (you Raptors)! 24 Feb 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I own the game and one of my favorite elements thereof is the score. So, when I found out just now that it's on a CD!!!
Having no true monetary sources of my own, I don't actually HAVE it yet. But I put it on my wish list. Besides, I know enough about the score to write a 95% accurate review.
Each character has a theme which is played slightly different ways, depending on the levels. some of these selections are named after levels in the game, and the little preview they have helps tell me which character's music is which.
The Compsognathus (Compy) theme is very playful, yet dark like the other dinosaur characters. Example: Benieth the surfice.
The Human Hunter (Hunter) theme is very rustic (kind of reminds me of Russian folk music) with a military edge. Example: The canyon brigade
The Velociraptor (Raptor) theme makes you get a sense of the animal's mind, and it's somewhat frightening (the mind of a six foot turkey with a mean streak and a scyth on each foot tends to be that way). Example: The forest explodes
The Tyrannosaurus Rex (T-Rex) theme is very booming, seeming to say "I'm here, I'm amazing, I'm gonna eat ya! I'm bigger than you, I'm higher in the food chain!". Example: Base camp rampage
The human prey (Sarah Harding) theme is very heroic, in a word. it makes you feel good to listen to. Example: Into the trees
So, if you want to hear great music without "HELP, oof, ROAAAR, crunch crunch slurp,"etc over it, than get this CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun to listen to, with great composition and performances. 2 Feb 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
My daughter received this CD as a gift. I had heard that it was the first time that a full symphony orchestra had been used for the soundtrack of a video game, so I was curious to hear it. Even though my tastes lean toward classical, I think this CD is great. It's good music that is fun to listen to, the performances are superb, and I found that I liked the tempo and variety of the selections. I've got my own copy now and it's in the regular rotation. Attention parents: this might be a good way to sneak real music into your kids' regular rotations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rousing full-orchestra score in the John Williams tradition 17 Jan 1999
By Gerry Kroll - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Here's an anomaly for a video game: not a synthesized score but one done with a live full orchestra. Rather than merely incorporating the themes John Williams created for the blockbuster motion picture, Michael Giacchino's lively music for "The Lost World: Jurassic Park" Playstation and Saturn games features original melodies in the Williams tradition: brassy, driving, and very catchy ("Into the Trees," for example, is infinitely hummable and will definitely stick with you after hearing it just once!). This generous soundtrack offers nearly an hour of music and is well worth exploring...an auspicious recording debut for one of the next century's most promising film composers.
5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for gamers anymore, a classic Williams-esque score 17 Jan 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Okay, so the game may not have been so hot but the music is a scorcher! It's a primordial soundtrack that would fit just as well with a blockbuster dino flick as it does with the game.
The only real comparison that this music has is to a John William's score; which is no bad thing at all. John Williams is one of the most brilliant and talented composer's of the 20th century, having created soundtracks for numerous classic sci-fi/fantasy films like Star Wars, Jaws, Indiana Jones, and Jurassic Park. What Michael does with this music is so Williams-esque that you'd think they shared the same brain! Don't get me wrong, Michael isn't simply ripping off Williams, as his music has a whole new sensation to it. It's like Williams with a twist. It's perfect for people like me who have become so accustomed to the standard (if that's even possible) Williams score; you'll never be able to guess what's going to happen next in Michael's work.
The music ranges in speed and mood from the triumphantly moving melodies of "Into the Trees" to the fiendish and malevolent Velociraptor pieces, to the haunting chants of "The Sulfur Fields", to the playful, yet errie, melody of the Compy. While I can't say that no two pieces sound alike, as they must incorporate the character's themes over several pieces, I can say that no two pieces feel alike. Every piece tells its own story and depicts its own world.
