Format: Audio CD
Musically, this is undoubtedly one of William's finest achievements. a huge expansive, almost operatic work, which sweeps from beatifully delicate melodies in the violins and flutes to thunderous ostinatos coming from the bass brass and strings. piano sonata melts into full orchestra crescendo stirring genuine excitement in the listener. no amount of description can convey the incredible emotional impact this music creates. of course there are the hugely famouse themes which bring a sense of undeniable satisfaction when you hear them brewing. you sense the orchestra about to swell into the sweeping melody called 'Flying' on the original album, or the gentle 'over the moon' which appears subtlely and im sure is capable of "taking a tear forming in your eye and causing it to drop" (Steven Spielberg on Schindlers List). but the significant thing about this album that sets it apart from the original soundtrack album, other than being the actual soundtrack recording, not a re-recording, is the numerous darker selections that often get forgotten about. ET is more than 'Flying'! there is a large amount of much darker, brooding, sometimes sinister, and very dramatic music on this album that was simply left out of the original. As is often the case with this man, the music on this disc is more profound than the film it was written for (which was never-the-less a fine film). such diversity of musical styles is what sets this score, and this composer on a higher plain. for my money hes a cut above the rest. i guess the point is, this is a simply brilliant, moving, stirring, touching, exciting, thrilling (insert own selection of additional very admiring adjectives) piece of music. whether your a fan of williams, of film scores, or of superb music, i suggest you buy this album. (oh, and listen to it.)

No real Soundtrack fan can afford to be without this 20th Anniversary edition of this fantastic score.
For me this is John Williams at his very best.
I can say that, without question, the last 6-7 minutes of track 20 ("Escape/Chase/Saying Goodbye")has the very best section of film music in it that I have ever heard.
This is the definitive movie score - it complements the action on the screen and listening to the music takes you through ever conceivable human emotion - fear, curiosity, wonder, love, hate, sadness etc...until you finally reach the uplifting finale.
Simply Wonderful!!

As a above, there is a serious injustice in this world because this is not flying off the shelves!! Well i suppose people are just missing out on how great this soundtrack actually is! This is, in my humble opinion, Williams best soundtrack!
Now im not an expert on music, far from it, so I cant go into all the musical terms that so many other reviewers do! But this is just superb stuff, nothing less! Its worth buying just for the final track (about 15mins long and absolutely stunning)! It will bring back all those memories of the film and fill with all the emotions of it too, from when E.T and Elliot first fly at halloween to the tear inducing last moments! Every time I listen to it, I cant help being filled with the excitment from the film! It is truely magical and only Williams can pull that off!
You will be humming the E.T. theme for ages after listening to this, maybe to the point where you can't sleep at night because it keeps going through your head!! This has happened to me countless times!
Words can not do this soundtrack justice nor can the many awards it has won (incl. an oscar in 1982), you just have to listen to it to fully appreciate it!
5 stars cannot fully justify this amazing piece of work!
John Williams, I salute you!!

Some of the best work of John Williams. The whole album fits perfectly together guiding you through a range of emotions, it's truly a film score that works well through all the individual little pieces. Some bits are more menacing and scary than I remembered but the main theme is just sublime in terms of it's magic. This soundtrack made 50% of that film.

This score goes beyond words. Only hearing this can you truly understand why it is considered the greatest score of all time. There is one thing that can be described though - something which is humbling and significantly compelling - the way in which it has been recorded. Sound engineers too often go unnoticed and this truly is a testament to the technology of its time - this achieves a better frequency range than most contemporary film scores. Its remastering would suggest it was recorded on a format beyond the ability of CD let alone the tape with which it would have been recorded. If emotion has been caught by the melodies of this soundtrack, then to engage you with that, so do the incredible use of low and high frequencies - so clear and warm are the sounds that I truly believe that this is the best recording of any orchestra committed to stereo compact disc.

A truly excellent piece of work, enjoyed it from start to finish. The score fills you with the same emotions as of the film, proof that it is in fact the music that can often make or break a film, as Spielberg once said himself. Where would Jaws be i wonder if it weren't for Williams's amazing score. The sleeve notes in all honesty were a little disappointing, not really giving you a great insight into the film itself, more a chat with Williams and his relationship with Spielberg, but having said that the music itself is breathtaking, and beautiful. I would urge any fan of film music to purchase this, it is an absolute treat, and you dont even need to like the film, but then, who doesnt like E.T??

BUY THIS NOW.
