Jurassic Park
John Williams

Review

The first track is great, and the rest is good work by Williams. Not my favourite score by the legend, but good material for roleplaying. There is a fair range of moods in the tracks, so chose carefully and you can't go wrong. Since it is an hour and ten minutes long it is also excellent value.

I would suggest that both science fiction and fantasy adventures could easily incorperate some of the music contained on this CD, as it seems to be fairly neutral. As expected, I would recommend the score for action orientated adventures, with the music used for specific descriptions or adventures.
