4.0 out of 5 stars Goldsmith's music elevates an average film! June 12 2003
Format:Audio CD
The producers of the trouble-plagued "Twilight Zone-the Movie" can be satisfied with one of their decisions: the hiring of legendary Jerry Goldsmith as leader of the baton. He, like fellow composers John Williams and Elmer Bernstein, belongs in a class by himself, with few even meeting him (or them) halfway.
...the album is short (45:20), but a little bit of Goldsmith goes a long way. The highlights are the scores from the segments "Kick the Can" and "It's A Good Life". There are some recognizable Goldsmith touches but that does not lessen their impact or beauty.
It just shows that one has a trained "Goldsmith ear". Any fan worth his/her weight in gold would be able to discern Goldsmith's style from another's.

5.0 out of 5 stars A FILM MUSIC MASTERCLASS FROM MAESTRO GOLDSMITH Dec 6 2000
By mtlangdon69@hotmail.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Jerry Goldsmith is one of the greatest artists to score a film, and Twilight Zone is one of his very best scores. The schizophrenic nature of this anthology movie means Goldsmith can fully display the diversity of his talent. Sweet, scary, gentle, violent, wacky, bombastic, understated: the four different stories in the movie collectively allow Goldsmith's score to touch every emotional level. Only a weak and dated 80's song is a stumbling point but - hey! - that's why they invented the skip button. Otherwise: breathtaking! inspired! majestic! And much better than the film deserves (but anyone who follows Goldmith's work will know that is nothing new).

4.0 out of 5 stars Welcome To The Goldsmith Zone Dec 7 2004
By Luis M. Ramos - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a fine work by Jerry Goldsmith. Having worked in the original TV show before, Goldsmith arranges the original Marius Constant main theme for the film's main and end credits, with total respect.

I really love his predominant use of snare drums and piano in 'Time Out'. A propulsive and relentless militaristic piece of music that describes the odyssey of Vic Morrow's character through different stages of time.

Then we have the lovely track 'Kick The Can', in which Goldsmith musically describes the wish of certain seniors to be young again. A very touching cue indeed.

'A Good Life' is not quite the kind of music I love to hear from Goldsmith, but I must admit that it fulfills its mission of conveying weirdness, with a little tribute to Carl Stalling on the side.

Finally, before we get to hear the "Twilight Zone" end credits, we get to hear a true thrilling track titled 'Nightmare At 20,000 Feet'. A spectacular piece of music that makes us feel the fears of an airline passenger (John Lithgow) who sees some sort of a monster on the plane wing.

The only track that seems to be out of place is the song 'Nights Are Forever', sung by Jennifer Warnes. Even though it's composed by Goldsmith and lyricist John Bettis, and it's played in the 'Time Out' sequence, the song feels kinda strange in the album, as well as in the film.

In general, this is one good album that should be in every soundtrack fan's collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mmmm ... Goldsmith!! Nov. 26 2001
By Peter Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The "music fan" above says that the only reason to buy this is the Jennifer Warne track.
Yeah, right.
Jerry Goldsmith is the man. I'm convinced that he is incapable of writing a bad score and this is no exception. It definitely helps to have seen the movie to fully appreciate the music, which encapsulates the different sections of the film to perfection. Just experience the gloom-laden music for "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" and then compare with the insanity of "It's a Good Life".
The Jennifer Warne track inclusion is a bit of a reach, as it only features briefly playing in the background in the jukebox in the "Time Out" section. But it's a nice song and strangely doesn't seem too out of place.
The only reason I've given this 4 stars instead of 5 is because there are is no extra music for the CD release.
But never mind. Do yourself a favour and experience the genius that is Jerry Goldsmith!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the 17 year wait. May 12 2001
By Mr Ghostface - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As a fan of Jerry Goldsmith's music for most of my 28 years, I have waited over half of my life to get this soundtrack. I'd almost forgotten about it, assuming it would never be released. But, here it is, and in its entirity and original form.
So was it worth the wait? I'll say. I really wanted it for the scores to Segment 2 ("Kick the Can") and Segment 3 ("It's a Good Life"), and to finally here it in such quality is fantastic. The sweeping, waltzing score for "Kick the Can" is vivacious and moving, while the music for the cartoon nightmare of "It's a Good Life" is fantastical, scary and at times surreal, capturing perfectly the mood of the segment. There are only 8 tracks listed on the CD, but several of these are almost 10 minutes long, so don't be discouraged by appearances.
This CD is the original orchestral/synthesiser orchestra recording, not a re-recording, and comes recommended to all of Jerry Goldsmith's fans and film score-philes alike.
Wonderful.
