Great Sountrack!! by Michael Longstreet (December 5, 2006)
It's hard to call this the best soundtrack from the original series Trek films (pre-Generations), because the music from the second and third films are equally as good, and it's hard to dispute the music from "The Motion Picture." But overall the tracks for "The Undiscovered Country" are definitely high on the list of Star Trek music. Cliff Eidelman is a newcomer to the Trek musical world (most of the previous stuff was done by Jerry Goldsmith), but he didnt' let the pressure get to him. The opening title, "Overture" is a fantastic opener to a space epic, while "Dining On Ashes" is a great melodic tune. "The Battle of Peace" and "Sign-Off" help remind you why theatrical Star Trek is so much better than episodic Star Trek on television. There is so much more to the visuals that you can see through the help of the music. The mysterious tunes like "Rura Penthe" and "Death of Gorkon" help portray a sense of forboding, which is common to the theme of the film. Overall I really enjoyed the music from "Star Trek VI."
