John Williams' Masterful Score of the Second in the Series of Swashbuckling Motion Pictures that Started with 'raiders of the Lost Ark', Starring Harrision Ford.
Top Customer Reviews
It is refreshing, nay astounding, that so many of you love the score. And it is equally irksome that he is continually lambasted over this work. It is clear that people's objections have more to do with a superficial reaction to the movie than an honest reaction to the music itself. How any cue (least of all the mine car chase) can be labelled as lifeless or bland is ming-boggling. If you must rag, make it defendable. It's taken me awhile to warm to the 'Crusade' score, while 'Temple' hooked me immediately, thoroughly and permanantly.
This is not a recommendation to buy it, because I realize, you either like the score or you don't. Whatever engrained prejudice has made you dislike it will not be jarred loose by me. You don't like it, don't buy it. But denigrating a great work without understanding its merits does a great diservice to this work and its prolifically inspired composer.
It is probably the rarest of Williams scores and is extremely difficult to track down. Currently it only appears to be available on Japanese import. However, there has been discussion over the last few years that an expanded rerelease is imminent following the example set by Raiders of the Lost Ark. Let's hope that such an addition is on its way, for it is sure to give the music the attention it deserves and would greatly enhance a score which at the moment falls short of the full five star rating.
He reaches them. Contrary to insulting naysayers, Williams doesn't recreate the same music each time. He may have the same spirit, thus creating a sense of deja vu as you hear the same themes in different pieces, but each score he composes is new and different and wonderful.
But I am here to talk of the Temple of Doom soundtrack. Let me tell you that he was done the same with this soundtrack that he does with all the rest. He has creatively and masterfully composed themes of evil and hope and adventure.
This is a great soundtrack to a great movie(Yeah, so I liked it--sue me), and althought import cost is a little steep, buy it. You will probably never see this soundtrack from any other source. It's rare and potentially a collector's item.
But money is trivial. Buy it for the wonderful music. However, take note--only 40 minutes of the riveting pieces.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is a great action/adventure film. But without the music, the film goes nowhere and is boring. I am glad John Williams wrote this music. Read morePublished on March 7 2001 by Joseph M. Golka
