For fans of Jerry Goldsmith's score for Ridley Scott 1978 movie Alien, this two-disc Intrada set is the ultimate fantasy. Everything is here and then some. Disc 1 contains Goldsmith's entire score as he originally intended it with every cue in place, including those that were later cut from the film plus his recomposed versions of cues the director made him change (Goldsmith's original main theme, for example, appears without its signature heroic trumpet melody because the director thought it wasn't creepy enough). Disc 2 includes the original soundtrack as issued on LP plus six other bonus tracks of demonstration takes and even the brief except from Eine kleine Nachtmusik used in the film. The stereo sound here is fabulous, the performances definitive, and the liner notes exhaustive. And the score, like the film, is a classic of its genre. With its mixture of the ecstatic chromaticism of Scriabin, the skittering strings of Penderecki, the harmonic waves of Ligeti, and the atmospheric percussion of Herrmann, Goldsmith's score became a template for all subsequent science fiction/horror movies. But as this splendid release so amply shows, the original still can't be beat.

Capping off the composer's longstanding partnership with producer Irwin Allen, The Towering Inferno is quintessential John Williams -- for better and for worse. There's no denying Williams' uncanny sense of scale. His themes are explosive and emotional, galvanized by massive brass flourishes and soaring string arrangements. But what's missing from The Towering Inferno is any sense of subtlety or nuance. Williams seizes upon the film's larger-than-life drama and wrings every moment for maximum suspense and pathos. It's telling that he would emerge as the composer du jour for George Lucas and Steven Spielberg as they steered American film from deeply personal storytelling to mass-market entertainment. This is music devoid of intimacy and heart. ~ Jason Ankeny
