A decade after first boarding the Starship Enterprise with his classic Star Trek: The Motion Picture score, composer Jerry Goldsmith returns to the franchise for its ill-fated fifth outing, directed by star William Shatner. Goldsmith seamlessly expands his earlier score with a series of lush new themes that communicate both the cosmos-spanning drama and the humanism of the Star Trek mythos. Entries like "A Busy Man" and "Life Is a Dream" marshal dynamic brass, ethereal strings, and interstellar electronic elements to strikingly evoke the larger-than-life scale of creator Gene Roddenberry's vision. But like the film, Goldsmith's score suffers from been-there-done-that malaise. For all of its complexity and craft, Star Trek V doesn't reinvent Goldsmith's earlier soundtrack so much as it refines it.
Perhaps if the album was actually titled STAR TREK V
Jerry Goldsmith's film scores have been a great part of my life. I was thrilled to see more of his music on iTunes, but would have never purchased an album entitled See Comments Below!!! Hoping someone at iTunes will make that change and keep the great Jerry Goldsmith music coming! There is so much more out there!!
Goldsmith Never Disappoints -- Shame About the Film
While the weakest entry in the film series, one it's best aspects was the magnificent score by Jerry Goldsmith. From the energized synthesizer blast in 'The Mountain' to the recurring four-note theme and Klingon calls in 'Without Help' (he later used both for future Trek scores) to the majestic closing credits, this stands out as some of his best work.
This should be titled Star Trek V - please fix this Itunes!
