The song list appears to be rather: this is not entirely the case. While there are many songs on this CD that are substantial, many are rather short. Often these short pieces would be cut from a soundtrack album: it is commendable that they were included, even considering their length.
Overall, a great purchase for fans of good music (even if they don't like sci-fi, or the movie). No sci-fi synth effects here!
The composer pulls out all the stops in a work that compares to the scores by Jarre, Williams, and Rozsa.
In what better company could a film composer find himself?
"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.Read more ›
