5.0 out of 5 stars Indy's Second Outing is Simply The Best June 10 2001
Format:Audio CD
It took me almost three years of searching to find this little gem. I am huge fan of The Big Three (Jerry Goldsmith, John Williams and James Horner), having grown up listening to Williams in particular. "The Temple of Doom" is a classic case of a spectacular score that doesn't have nearly enough music displayed on the CD. Nearly half of the music from the movie has not been included on this CD, but what is there is enough to give you a reason to remember why we love the "Indiana Jones" trilogy so much. Williams allowed his theme for Indy to evolve here into a more fun and humorous adventure with the introduction of the themes for Short Round and Willie. The theme for the slave children is among the most powerful ever written by Williams, on par with his themes for "Empire of the Sun" and "E.T." The action cues, particularly the mine car chase and the scene with Indy and Short Round trapped in a room with spikes and collasping ceiling, are very intense. The CD is classic Williams and truly defines this composers endless wealth for new and inventive music. As with all his scores, "Temple of Doom" functions beautifully without it's accompanying movie. While difficult to find and only a mere taste of the full score, this CD is a fine addition to any CD collection and a must for any die-hard Williams fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Williams' most underappreciated Dec 26 2000
By Chris
Format:Audio CD
This is the ONLY place (Amazon.com) I've been where I have not been the only one who doesn't hate this score or consider it the worst of the three. I say "don't hate" simply to underscore the vitriol the score receives from alledeged Williams fans. I, in fact, love it, consider it a close second best of the three (behind Raiders), and hold it as one of my favorite Williams scores...and that goes for the movie, too.
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Indiana Jones and the Missing Sountrack Feb. 28 2000
By TR Winn
Format:Audio CD
The soundtrack to Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is an invaluable addition to the collection of any fan of John Williams. New and old themes are joined seamlessly in order to produce original and compelling melodies which reflect the action and adventure portrayed in the film. 'Short Rounds Theme' and 'Parade of the Slave Children' are particular highlights whilst the jaunty 'Anything Goes' serves as a great introduction track. Darker aspects of the movie are reflected in the macarbe 'Temple of Doom', a strange yet compelling addition to the soundtrack which demonstrates William's sheer versitality as a composer. However, the soundtrack is not without its faults. It is perhaps the fact that one went through much searching in order to attain a copy that one feels slightly dissapointed with the end result. It only contains about 40-50% of the original score and thus leaves you expecting so much more. Whilst it has its moments it does not, in my opinion, better Raiders of the Lost Ark or The Last Crusade in terms of originality and atmosphere.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, great music, but a little short. March 9 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I'm stingy with stars. I'm a very tough critic, and with John Williams(understandably), I have high standards.
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 more

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad
This CD is very good, but with the high price and only 40 minutes of music you might wanna reconsider, right? Wrong! Don't reconsider, just buy and enjoy.
