This cd is a must have!!! It is Great!!

Rating: 2/5

Missing some of the film's best cuts! Unbelievable!!


The other reviewers are quite right to praise David Newman's excellent score to Ice Age; the problem with this CD is not Newman's music but the lack of it here! Everyone's favorite cuts from this score are the catchy opening travel theme (which IS here, briefly) and the extended travel song in the middle ("Send me on my way" with Newman's orchestration to it, ALL of which is MISSING). NO songs are on this disc. This partial soundtrack thus lacks the most memorable and enjoyable music in the film. The CD also lacks the reprise of the travel music played during the end credits; you will find ZERO end credits music here, leaving the music experience to end oddly abruptly. There is exactly 1 minute and 15 seconds of the travel theme here and that's ALL. The entire CD is only 34 minutes long! Both the listener and Newman [are not fairly represented] by this crummy job of producing. The praise in the other reviews is for David Newman's fine work, not for its "mis-"presentation this CD. You'll do better to record the movie music off your DVD than accept this very brief sampling. This release does no justice to a really enjoyable job of movie scoring. This CD is mainly frustrating.

A Great CD


This soundtrack is one excellent CD. Michael Giacchino does a great job scoring this game. Usually when you think of "video game" music you think of the annoyingly synthesized tunes. But no, not here. This soundtrack is fully orchestrated by the Northwest Sinfonia. One thing that really struck me about this soundtrack is how Giacchino created different themes for each character in the game. From the playful wind and string instruments for the Compy to the rasping brass and pounding percussion for the dark primeval theme of the T-Rex.
I noticed that at the end of the disc that there are unlisted tracks. The last listed track is number 19 which is one of the Compy's themes. If you let your CD player keep playing after the Compy's theme is over, you'll hear a a few jungle-like sounding bits. They are mostly horn melodies, string and percussion rythms. I have no idea why they aren't listed on the CD or why they weren't used in the game. To me this are some of the best music on the soundtrack. After the jungle-like themes there is another song (still listed under Track 19). This doesn't really sound anything like what else is on the CD. It almost sounds like something you would hear at a football game, but it is still good. So don't shut your discman or CD player off after the listed music for Track 19 is over. You may have to wait about a minute (if you have a digital counter on your CD player, it should be about 3:11 when the music comes on) until the music starts up, but it is worth it. Trust me.
Michael Giacchino does an astounding job in following up to John Williams' score for the Jurassic Park films. None of the original film themes are displayed in this soundtrack, but it is still a good one. I suggest that if you are a fan of the music from the Jurassic Park films you get this CD. You won't be disappointed.
