The 2003 miniseries continues the saga of the Atreides dynasty. Joining the ensemble cast for this sequel is Academy Award–winning actress Susan Sarandon in the role of Wensicia, a ruthless princess eager to restore her deposed family to the imperial throne.

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
Brian Tyler's score for the Sci-Fi channel's miniseries Children of Dune has an appropriately grandiose, menacing feel befitting an epic science-fiction saga. The mostly orchestral score mixes sweeping, John Williams-esque pieces like the main title and "Summon the Worms" with softer moments such as "Arrival of Lady Jessica" and Middle Eastern-inspired tracks like "Revolution" and "Inama Nushif." It's a well-balanced collection of music, moving from the stately "Dune Messiah" to the brooding "Leto Atreides II" to tense, treacherous pieces like "Jihad" and "Rya Wolves" while still remaining cohesive, and "My Skin Is Not My Own," "Horizon," and "The Golden Path" evoke the desert sandscapes of the miniseries, but for all its competency, the soundtrack rarely sounds distinctive. Fans of the miniseries may enjoy Children of Dune as a musical souvenir, but too much of the score sounds too generic to be appealing outside of that context.

    A CD worth buying!

    If you are someone like me who loves the movie and the books...then this CD is great for you. I fell in love with "Inama Nusif", "Farewell", "Main Title(House Atriedes), "Dune Messiah", "Summon the Worms", "Trap the Worm", "Reunited", "Horizon," and the songs that sound Middle-eastern like "The Fremen Qizartart." Overall, I really enjoy this CD.

    Lush Music With Exotic Spice

    I loved this soundtrack. Inama Nushif was my main inspitation to buy this album, since I fell in love with the song. It shows dedication on Brian Tyler's part that he would write a song entirely in Freman. The whole score is beautiful. Leto and Ghanima and Reunited are two of my other favorites.

    One of the best scores in years!

    First off, I want to state that when I was first exposed to "Children of Dune", my friends tried to get me to watch it, and I would drift in and out with occasional interest. Then, one day, a friend of mine sent me the first track from the COD score over the internet, and I was amazed. The track was simply amazing and just incredible. It was certainly one of the finer tracks I've heard in quite some time. Shortly after, I was at a store and ended up buying the COD score, and was it a wise decision. Brian Tyler is a genius, and has provided a beautiful, sometimes haunting score. The first track "Summon the Worms", is a masterpiece. And, it is because of this score that I ended up watching the first Dune movie, and will probably get it on DVD along with that of COD. If you're a fan of movie music, this CD is a MUST-HAVE.

    It's Okay...

    I loved the movie on SciFi, so I was expecting a lot from this cd. After reading that the 36 titles were chosen from about 136, I was thrilled and hoping for a well made, varying album. However, except for the first 5 or so songs, the rest sound like the cd is just repeating, with little variation. If you're not playing it loud enough, it won't sound like anything--I thought it was broken, but apparently, the only thing barely broken was the silence! If you like the movie, try downloading Summon the Worms, as well as the Atreides Theme, and the amazing Inama Ushif (all in Fremen languages!). So, if you're a die hard fan, get it. Otherwise, try downloading first, then maybe borrowing from a rather unfortunate friend...
