Indiana Jones ~ Indiana Jones And The Last Crus
Top Customer Reviews
One of the greatest things about Mr. Williams is that he has strong melodies that are quite memorable. (Just think of how often you hear "Jaws" in parodies and otherwise). "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" has distinct melodies on nearly every track. That's why I think this soundtrack is the best he's ever composed.
The best track, by far, is track 3--"Scherzo for Motorcycle and Orchestra". Goofy name. You don't actually hear a motorcycle in the music, just pizzicato strings, pic and other instruments to form quite a song. (This is the part in the movie where he's being chased on motorcycle.) It's driving and intense ...and very cool. I think it's probably the most underrated Williams song in all of history. Any my favorite.
There are two other tracks that are bright as well. "Escape from Venice", track 5, is an adventurously played mandolin/full symphony orchestra piece. It's very intense, but also has a few whimsical parts with a mandolin that keep it light.Read more ›
"Indy's Very first Adventure" has a mysterious beginning, but then changes to an exciting, adventure tone as the young Indy escapes with the cross of Coronado(which has a little theme too)
"X Marks The Spot" begins with a wonderful little cue for the trip to Italy by plane. Then the tone rises from mysterious notes to a bang as Indy say the title of the track.
"Sherzo For Motorcycle and Orchestra" is the scene when the Joneses escape from the Castle, being an exciting track, which introduce that cool Nazi cue (actually in the mov it appeared before!)
"Ah, Rats!!!" has a fine variation of the Grail's theme (so archeologic part!) and a big explosion in the end.
"Escape From Venice" is a nice action music, that adds a kind of greek guitars for Kazim.
"No Ticket" is one of the most adored cues, covering the part of Indy taking care of Colonel Vogel.
"The Keeper Of the Grail" has a little theme for the knight and the notes get darker as Donovan makes his choice.
"Keeping Up With The Joneses" is a mix of variations of the father/son relationship appearing some parts in the mov.
"Brother of The Cruciform Sword" has a full rendition of the nazis theme.
"Belly Of The Steel Beast" is probaby the most adored, and I agree since it's powerful music for an action scene with a lot of marches for the fight with nazis. A true gem!
"The Canyon Of the Crescent Moon" contains some arabic touches and "The Penitent Man Will Pass" has the grail's theme at his maximum with choirs.
The soundtrack comes to an end with "End Credits".
"Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade" has an excellent score for the last(not exactly) mov of the saga. I'm waiting ansiously for John Williams return for Indy 4.

Of the three Indiana Jones scores, the Last Crusade is the best. Williams combines his experiences from the last 2 movies into this grand adventure score. Read morePublished on Sept. 17 2002 by Amazon Customer
