Editors’ Notes

In the span of a barely over a year composer John Williams forged the Hollywood film music equivalent of the Triple Crown via Star Wars, Close Encounters and this rich orchestral elegy for director Richard Donner's take on the comic world's Man of Steel. Williams' Oscar-nominated score bristles with a heroism that's the equal of his work for George Lucas' space operas, yet finds considerable soul in the heart-stirring themes that evoke the grace of Superman's flight and bittersweet romance with Lois Lane. Williams' triumphant "Superman March" remains nothing less the musical heart of the entire franchise, an epochal symphonic touchstone that's so indelible it inspired a whole new generation of filmmakers to use it in reviving the superhero's legacy nearly three decades later.

Supendous!

It may not be a complete album but it's a superb example of what soundtrack SHOULD sound like! Highly recommended!

One of Williams' best

As a big fan of John Williams and his music, I have to say his work on this score is nothing short of brilliant. The score for Superman: The Movie will please anyone that has an interest in film scores, and anyone thats a Superman fan. It's hard to see it getting better than this for the Man of Steel.

The Planet Krypton

It really sounds like it was written for a superior force that is narrating the story of an ancient civilization - precisely as it is supposed to. I can't think of many sounds that create such a realistic environment and I would give as much credit to Williams for The Planet Krypton as I would to the entire team of Superman Returns for being a success, if it becomes one...
