That score is in my top 10 favourites. Such a rich feel-good theme for Quigley himself. It's a well rounded score with Poledouris's trademark intergration of electronics/orchestra. The secondary brass motif for Quigley is somewhat foreshadowing of Starship Troopers. The banjo/guitar add alot of novelty/beauty to the score. Hardly a dull moment, maybe drags slightly in the middle.

Great score from a sadly largely-forgotten movie. Great stuff all around!

I agree as well - LOVE this score.

In Basil's defense, the movie (which I also love) drags a little in the middle, so it follows that the score would too...

The Attack - best banjo action music ever

Very enjoyable score for a very enjoyable movie. Probably one of the first times I really noticed the music in a film, though I didn't get the soundtrack until sometime in the mid-90s. But I can remember, shortly after the film came out, "singing" the theme at school and telling my classmates what it was when they asked. big grin

You mean Prometheus.

Its quite good. Its everything, so it feels a little... padded. But theres more fun to be found on the disc too!

The only quibble I have with the Prometheus album is that the banjo is a lot less prominent in the mix (especially in "The Fire", where it's barely audible). frown

Other than that, the extra music is wonderful to have. A great presentation of a great score. big grin

If I have the original, do I need the expanded?

I also have the original but picked up the expanded issue a few months ago along with King Solomon's Mine's, it it well worth purchasing!!

i adore this score. also way up there in the rankings for me. better than the movie deserved, though it's not a bad movie but has a strange tone throughout. i think i'll listen to it right now!

Theres a cue or two missing off the Intrada CD that I really love - Dingo Attack especially, though it works much better in context with the film - so I'd say its worth hunting it down for that.

Besides, would you rather pay full price for MORE music or LESS music?

I find the expanded Prometheus edition a great listening experience.
