This was David Arnold's score that got him into the big time. In short, it is absolutely outstanding. "Stargate Overture" begins with ominous sounding orchestral music, leading to an epic 7 note motif, which leads into a chorus chanting in a language that I can't understand. "Giza, 1928" begins with Egyptian-like sounds and tom-toms, reminding me somewhat of Jerry Goldsmith's The Mummy. This then leads to an incredible choral section, which is one of those film music moments that really stands out. "Orion" and "You're On The Team" contains military march based strings and percussion. "The Stargate Opens" is another incredible cue with lots of great orchestral things going on. "Entering the Stargate" starts out lovely and then segues into ominous string passages, leading up to going in the stargate. "Mastadge Drag" is a quick tempo version of the main theme that is fun and adventurous at the same time. "The Mining Pit" contains a great male voice choir and "Caravan to Nagada" contains a wonderful rendition of the main theme after a huge gong crash. "Leaving Nagada" contains heavy percussion and "Battle At The Pyramid" is a great action cue. "Going Home" ends the score with one, final rendition of the main theme ending in a powerful fashion. The first half of the score really stands out, while the middle section drags somewhat, and the finale is tremendous. A highly recommended score!

The tracks herein correspond exactly to those in the Special Edition DVD version of the film - none of that 're-recorded to get a musically superior version' nonsense. The tracks correspond to their order in the film, with one exception. A few isolated musical passages are omitted as separate tracks, usually because they're extracts from longer sequences elsewhere. I'll indicate which parts of the film correspond to each track, to help people decide for themselves what they'll be getting out of this CD.
"Stargate Overture" - The opening credits, complete with the 'growling' FX.
"Giza, 1928" - In the theatrical release, this immediately follows the overture, but with the volume so low that initially it's hard to hear. It ends with the cut from Giza to Daniel's lecture.
"Unstable" covers O'Neil's introduction, but begins in the preceding scene with the cheerful 5-note ripple as Catherine hands Daniel his travel plans.
"The Coverstones" skips the march as the camera first pans up to Creek Mountain, but begins as Daniel first enters the coverstones' room during the meet & greet, ending as he spots the chalkboard translation (omitting the little flourish accompanying his corrections).
"Orion" omits the short, isolated musical phrase covering the cut to Daniel's taped notes, beginning when Daniel marks up the 'borrowed' newspaper's star chart, ending as Catherine introduces West.
"The Stargate Opens" begins with West's "Show him", ending as the probe is sent through (not including the creepy passage as the robot approaches the gate).
"You're On the Team" begins as West adds Daniel to the team, ending as his travel allergies kick in again.

Possibly the most amazing thing about this score is that it was only David Arnold's second major movie, and the first time he ever scored a movie for a large orchestra. What an achievement! As a composer myself, I marvel at the way he effectively captured the Egyptian flavor of the movie, all the while successfully supporting the movie's storyline. I listen to this score more than any others, and I consider it one of the 10 best movie scores ever (up there along with John Williams' "Schindler's List" and "Jurassic Park"; Nino Rota's "The Godfather"; Bernard Herrman's "Citizen Kane", "Cape Fear", "Vertigo", and "Psycho"; Miklos Rozsa's "Ben Hur"; and Sergei Prokofiev's "Alexander Nevsky".)
Unfortunately, Arnold has as-of-yet been unable to duplicate the genius and originality he showed in Stargate. His score to "Independence Day" seemed largely to be a rehash of Stargate. I anxiously await hearing his score to "The World is Not Enough".
This soundtrack is definitely a must have for all fans of movie scores.

One of the best parts of the sci-fi adventure film "Stargate" was David Arnold's superb musical score. Arnold's music is true to the film's concept, which blends science fiction gadgetry with motifs inspired by ancient Egypt; the music thus combines the flavor of classic space opera scores (like "Star Wars") with great biblical epic scores (like "Ben-Hur" or "The Ten Commandments").
The CD opens with the outstanding "Stargate Overture," a rich, romantic composition with ominous shadings. The CD as a whole is an excellent balance of militaristic, gentle, rousing, exotic, and just plain fun passages. Particularly impressive is "Ra -- The Sun God," which builds to a seductive yet horrific crescendo. Highly recommended for fans of great film scoring.
