Product Description

If you were to climb into that DeLorean and return to 1985, you'd make a disturbing discovery-only the main theme from the first Back to the Future was released! Now, along with a suite from Part II and the Journey West theme from Part III , you can hear Alan Silvestri's themes from the skateboard chase, the clock tower scene and more on this world premiere of the original Back to the Future score!

Being the Back to the Future fanatic that I am, I must say it is hard for me not to like anything and everything associated with BTTF. However, this is proved false once I heard this soundtrack recording. The Royal Scottish National Orchesta has a lot to learn and in my opinion has butchered Alan Silvestri's best score to date.
The only good thing to come about from this which is why I gave it any stars at all is the fact that the music from the first BTTF other than the main title and overture is presented here for the first time. I always wanted to hear the skateboard chase and the music leading up to Marty's final departure from 1955 at the end of the film. Plus it is nice to hear the music from the end of the film when Doc comes back and tells Marty about his kids.
Only the most hardcore fans (like me) will enjoy the score to BTTF the ride from Universal Studios. Since I've been to Universal quite a bit, I know the ride well and can enjoy this piece without hating the Scottish orchestra that much.
You will want this if you are a hardcore BTTF fan, but not a passive soundtrack fan. Alan Silvestri if you are reading this, please get the original orchestral score from BTTF part 1 released!! And don't employ the Scottish orchestra either!

I have been a huge fan of the trilogy since it came out in 1985 and now with the release of the DVD set of all 3 movies, hopefuly fans will realize how great and powerful the music of all 3 movies were. The movie was great but Alan Silvestri's masterful score really brings the movies home.
The Trilogy set itself is a total instrumental work redone by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and includes most of the songs that weren't on the BTTF 1 and BTTF 2 soundtracks (That I recomend people to buy as well including this one). The first BTTF album was more of a real song album and only 2 of the songs that Alan did for the movie were on it. This CD though gives us all the songs we always wanted including the Skateboard chase (similar to the Hoverboard chase on Pt 2 album) and the complete Clocktower climax at the end of the movie, which alone makes it a great buy to get this album. Also it has the Old West preview music that you hear at the end of Part 2 where they show you the coming attractions to the next movie. That wasn't on the part 2 album.
Unfortunatly though this album isn't PERFECT. It does have a few flaws. The orchestra doing this album isn't as polished and powerful sounding as the Outatime Orchestra that does the music for the original 3 albums. Notes seem to be distant at times and when you play the similar theme on the other album or as you heard it in the movie there is a very noticible difference. Also none of the songs from Part 3 were redone . They just took the songs off the existing Part 3 album which is alright as they picked some good ones. (Point of No Return and End Credits are some of the best from the Pt 3 soundtrack in my opinion). Another down side is that they leave off some really great songs from part 2 like the tunnel chase and Hoverboard chase.

If you want original quality, get the original scores. I would also have liked to get a boxed set of the original soundtracks. This CD is only for those who want to listen to alternate versions of certain music. Tracks 16 to 19 are all genuine from the Part III original score. I have always loved to hear the Part II theme, but the version on the Trilogy CD does not compare at all. The tempo is slower, and the instruments and tone are totally different...nothing like the original. The "Burn The Book" track is also altered. They took the drums out of the beginning, which changed the music completely. The Part I theme is also different. This version uses fewer instruments than the original. Even though you get certain Part I tracks that weren't on the original score, like the famous "Skateboard Chase," you can bet that Debney and RSNO changed the music in some way. I think fans shoud get this only if they want to hear music not found anywhere else (like the "Skateboard Chase").

When I first heard this CD was coming out, I was excited. I was hoping for a full score to the original at least, but I would have loved to have seen a boxed set of all three. Here are the flaws I see here.
1. Re-recording. Enough said, I would much rather here what was originally in the movie rather than a re-recording.
2. A bad re-recording. It just sounds horrible. I can hear mad echo from this concert hall they recorded in.
3. I wonder if its really the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. I have the "Shadows of the Empire" CD, and they sound great on it. Why is it in some places on this it sounds like a high school band? I hear brass just blasting away in places, very bad tone quality. And the snare in Clocktower Part I: MY GOD. He is so out of time in places its not even funny. Its rather disgusting. Im thinking he was either drunk or just really having a bad day. And the tempos in general are just...sooo....slow... Seems like some of this should have been caught and they re-recorded the tracks. But, then again, since when does Varese care that much about anything?
All in all, if you want music from these films, buy the score to Part II and III, and look for the bootleg of Part I on ebay or somewhere. It might cost you a bit more, but it is the original soundtrack, so its the good stuff. I love Back to the Future, but this is definitely NOT an essential to a BTTF collection.
