When I saw "Back to the Future" as a teenager, not only did it become one of my all-time favourite movies, but it also played a major part in turning me on to movie scores; I know a lot of people bought it for the two Huey Lewis cuts and the other songs, but Alan Silvestri's score was what drove me to get this. Both Silvestri and the score have many fans - there's actually a website petitioning to get the actual music from the movie released, as the 11 minutes or so on the soundtrack [the short main theme and the 8-minute "Overture" - basically a suite, mostly taken from the storm climax] aren't heard that way in the movie; the version of the theme over the end credits has a more thrilling ending than the album version, for instance. (I heard some sound clips of the Varese re-recording and was NOT impressed.)
The songs are okay, but nothing really essential; more of the score would have made this a 5-star release. But fans can take heart from "Romancing the Stone" [finally released after 18 years]... we might get lucky!

As much as I love the "Back to the Future" series (they are my favorite movies of all time), I can't help but feel somewhat disappointed with this CD. I bought it expecting there would be some great film scores from the movie, but alas, that is not the case.
Not that what the CD offers isn't fine. This soundtrack does have the theme to the movie which is on Track 3 (a short version) and Track 6 (the long version). This is, in my opinion, Alan Silvestri's best work of all time. I sooooo want to play this score in our concert band, but I don't think it's ever going to happen.
Huey Lewis and the News were on top of the world when this movie came out, so their two songs in "The Power of Love" (Track 1) and "Back in Time" (Track 5) are featured on this CD. Lewis even makes a cameo appearance in the film, playing the part of someone who doesn't like Marty McFly's loud music.
My other favorite tracks, besides Tracks 3 and 6, are Tracks 9 and 10. Track 9 ("Earth Angel") is a memorable song that everyone who has seen the movie remembers. Who can forget that heart-pounding scene from the movie where Marty is about to be erased from existence? And Track 10 ("Johnny B. Goode") is an awesome song that is frequently played on my CD player. Unlike the movie version, however, this track plays the song in full. It doesn't cut into Marty doing his "rock'n'roll thing" in the middle of the song and creeping everyone out who attended the dance. Which is another classic scene from the movie, by the way.
In short, this soundtrack is okay.

All right, I admit it... my main interest in picking this up was not for the instrumentals. Like most folks, I wanted it for the two cuts by Huey Lewis and The News, 'The Power of Love' and 'Back In Time'. Yes, I really dug on those 80's bubble-gum/retro pop tracks back in my middle school days, and I needed to complete my HL&N collection, okay? And don't laugh, cuz you bought this OST back then for the exact same reason, and don't you deny it! Besides, with the boom of the 80's nostalgia market nowadays- with TransFormers, G.I. Joe, Masters of the Universe, Voltron and John Hughes-directed movies being just a few examples- this soundtrack will be stylin' once again in no time!
But even though my reasons for owning this recording was to add to my library of Reagan-era pop, it did introduce me to the world of symphonic music. Up until that time, I never cared much for symphony, be it classical or modern. Alan Silvestri's efforts added just the right tone to the movies' many tense and exciting moments. His BTTF overture got me curious enough to check out the works of other great notable soundtrack composers, including Jerry Goldsmith (Star Trek I, V, VIII & IX, Total Recall), James Horner (Star Trek II, III), Basil Poledouris (RoboCop, Starship Troopers, Conan) and especially John Williams (The Star Wars & Indiana Jones Trilogies, Superman The Movie). Of course it also helps that I'm a big fan of the films that these composers wrote music for. Ironically, my interests in other Silvestri pieces is minimal. I don't even know any other movies he's scored tunes for aside from the BTTF trilogy!
This soundtrack also introduced me to Eric Clapton. Sadly, I was less than impressed by his '(Heaven is) One Step Away'.

When I first saw the Back to the Future movie, I was simply amazed. What really got me excited was the "to be continued..." at the end. I could not wait for the second movie to come out. Anyway, I bought the soundtrack to the movie and re-lived the movie all over again.
All of the songs were good, but I fell in love with the songs that the orchestra played. I listen to the CD in my car and it really makes me want to have a lead foot until I reach 88 MPH. I know it sounds stupid, but this music can get you excited. The score for this movie was very well done. If you have bought the soundtrack to "Superman", you know how excited you can get.
What I thought was strange was one of the songs. Do you remember when Marty comes back from the past and can't get the car started? The song that was being played on the radio where that homeless person was sleeping on the bench is on the CD. If you ask me, tracks 3 and 6 are the best.
This CD is worth your money.
