The music is in the style of Robin Hood / Sea hawk, a slight swashbuckling to it- but not as quite as good as either of them. The C.D. has a nice booklet with backgound to the music which gets an extra star. The soundtrack has been reconstructed so you get the full score, but suffers a bit to me as the music is helping what you see on the screen and not the music itself - slighty disjointed - sometimes when film scores are put on L.P. / C.D minor changes are made to make them flow a bit more. However I liked it - I recommend the Captain Blood released by the same label too.

By J Scott Morrison HALL OF FAME on 8 Mar. 2005
Format: Audio CD
Just to get it out of the way, I'll state my bias about film score recordings. It seems to me there is little point in recording film scores independently of their movie unless they can stand on their own. There are any number of film scores, or suites of music from film scores, that do accomplish that and are even sometimes performed in concert. 'Alexander Nevsky' is probably the prime example. And although Franz Waxman was a marvelous craftsman and although his score for 'Objective, Burma!' is skillful and does what it is supposed to do in the context of the film, as independent music it is dull and repetitive. It has three general moods: suspense, dramatic climax, and passages that celebrate the grit, determination and eventual victory of the protagonists. We get umpteen suspenseful buildups followed by dramatic resolution, all of it done with consummate craft, but without anything terribly memorable resulting.
The performance of this restoration by John Morgan of Waxman's score is lovingly done. But, I'm sorry to say, it doesn't come to much. This was previously released on the full-price Marco Polo label, and that is still available. If you hanker to have this music, this Naxos release is the one to get.

HASH(0x940d1b40) out of 5 stars Not the most-memorable of film music, but fairly entertaining 14 April 2013
By John J. Puccio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In the case of Objective Burma! (score restored by John Morgan), it isn't necessary to have seen the movie to enjoy Waxman's music because just a glance at the segment headings gives one a pretty good idea of what's going on, the music filling in the rest. Titles like "Briefing in an Hour," "Take Off," "Jumping," "Killing the Sentry," "Two Came Back," "Burmese Village," "Missing the Plane," "At Night," "Invasion," and "The Camp--Finale" pretty much tell the story in themselves. Then, with Stromberg's direction and Morgan's reconstruction, lo and behold, the music actually sounds like the pictorial images we envision, rather like a series of miniature tone poems, much of it march-based, of course. Waxman never composed music to sell soundtrack albums but to convey the nuances of every film he wrote for; it's hardly a clever or revolutionary concept, just a practical one that pays off.

Originally released in the Marco Polo line in 2000 and now on the lower-priced Naxos label, Objective Burma! has the kind of sound we have come to expect from this source, William Stromberg and the Moscow Symphony having produced so many other good film recordings for the company. While the sonics are a bit less than completely open or transparent, plus a little distant, there is some relatively good, realistic stage depth and imaging involved.
