A MAJESTIC MASTERPIECE
by
Branko LaRusso (January 7, 2003)
A great movie with an equally great score!

Raiders of the Lost Ark is a majestic masterpiece which quite frankly is in a league of it's own when it comes to action/adventure scores. This one is a thoroughbred in a stable of stallion's that John Williams has created in his long and prolific scoring career.

This soundtrack would definitely be one of my prized possessions in my soundtrack collection.
Each track from the haunting "Main Title:South America,1936" through to the "End Credits" depicts each scene in a way that only maestro, John Williams can do in his own inimitable, distinctive and marvellous style. When I play this soundtrack from beginning to end, it is almost actually like watching the legendary movie itself.

The soundtrack itself is wonderfully packaged with loads of info on how the score itself came together, accompanied also with photo's and storyboards. Lukas Kendall has done a superb job in his significant contribution to this soundtrack.
A few of my standout tracks (which quite frankly was hard to do because they're all superb) on this album would have to be, the ominous - "Main Title:South America,1936", the exotic piece - "To Cairo", the spirit lifting - "The Map Room:Dawn", the rollercoaster ride - "Desert Chase", and the awe inspiring - "The Miracle of the Ark" to name but a few.

Soundtrack Collectors, Im sure will be salivating in anticipation for the next classic installment in this trilogy ,long overdue for a re-released expanded edition - "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" - I know I will be !

Overall a superb work from John Williams and a well deserved pat on the back for a job well done.
Long may he reign!
