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!
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.Read more ›
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'.Read more ›
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.

Well worth the purchase despite the moldy oldies. The tracks by Marty Mcfly and Huey Lewis saved the album.Published 6 months ago by Geoffrey C. Lockyer
The album is amazing. From beginning to the end is the movie's music. I feel like I was transferred to 1985 listening to it.Published 20 months ago by Chris Matalski
This is a decent soundtrack overall, but nothing too impressive. The best tracks I think are the "Huey Lewis And The News" songs. Read morePublished on May 12 2004 by H3@+h
In short, the Back To the Future movie itself is just about my favorite from the 80s, maybe altogether. Read morePublished on Dec 23 2003 by oldschooler1981

I like this CD. It's full of obscure music from the 80s and two tracks of Back to the Future score.
