2.0 out of 5 stars Agree. Not as good as the original. May 1 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Every soundtrack sounds like the previous one because of slow, ponderous, heavy, sterile, dry interpretation of the themes. One just expects some brightness in the playing but this is never delivered. This recording "tries" to have a story. Stick to the original soundtrack. 1000 times more enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of John Barry's movie scores Oct. 29 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Out of Africa is the finest and most memorable of Barry's scores, wonderfully unusual, not like other soundtracks that are takeoffs on famous or obscure classical music. Delicate and bold, it is the perfect companion to the film, but even if you haven't seen the film, this soundtrack can be captivating. The beauty of the music can only be rivaled by the natural beauty of the African continent. This is a more complete version of the original soundtrack album, including a number of themes that were not on the original. The original, however, seemed livelier, while this version, since it is 20-bit digital, has a purer, more lyrical and even lonely sound. If you are a fan of the film or it's soundtrack, it is worth having both versions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not like the original Nov. 1 2001
Format:Audio CD
The idea of listening a new recording of John Barry's memorable Out of Africa is to say the least interesting. So, I prefered to listen to the new recording without listening the original one before. Just to see the difference. Well, even from the first track you can see the difference and you miss instatly the original recording. It is not a bad album. Not at all, but it lacks the smoothness and the feeling of the original album. The sound seems more "metalic" and lacks the passion of the original. Still it's a way to appreciate once more the fantastic work of John Barry.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice, but something is missing.... Nov. 3 2003
Format:Audio CD
The tracks to this album is absolutely wonderful, and although I have not bought the original album yet, I am familiar with the main theme. This album is not bad, but something is missing...I agree with the other reviews that it does kind of lack that intimate feeling when compared to the original soundtrack...maybe it's due to some of the track being so short! (48 seconds)

5.0 out of 5 stars Quiet Background to a Stunning Story July 19 2002
Format:Audio CD
This soundtrack is a wonderfully symphonic background to the storyline of this film. I have found it to be both a quieting and pensive demonstration of passionate music.
It's classical in style, and quiet in content. A wonderful refuge from so much of today's clanging sounds.
