Overview

Legend [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack]

One of the hardest things to understand about Legend is why Goldsmith's score was completely replaced by the electronic twitterings of Tangerine Dream for the U.S. release. Goldsmith's music is a delicate tapestry intended to weave in and around the action of the film. This is some of the best music Goldsmith has ever composed, performed with loving grace, and it served the film well everywhere in the world but America.

This was different than the score I first heard which was by Tangerine Dream. Then when I heard this one I wasn't sure if I was going to like it. It's not bad. It's good but just not a favorite of mine. If you like this score or both then that's great. I just felt the other score fit more with the tone of the movie. Still I recommend listening to both this and the Tangerine Dream score. The movie is also worth seeing too.

When Legend came out in 1985, Jerry Goldsmith was the chosen composer for the upcoming movie, but when the U.S. release of the movie, was released, Jerry Goldsmith's score was foolishly rejected, and replaced it with Tangerine Dream's score, but as the DVD of the movie was released, both versions of it appears in it, the Director's Cut, which features Jerry Goldsmith's score, and the U.S. release which features the Tangerine Dream score, and they're two songs on the U.S. release of the movie, &quot Loved By The Sun&quot , sung by Yes' lead vocalist Jon Anderson, which is a definate treat for Yes fans like myself, and &quot Is Your Love Strong Enough?&quot by Brian Ferry. As for the Jerry Goldsmith score, his score included song, which the lyrics by John Bettis, like for example, the song, &quot My True Love's Eyes&quot . Jerry Goldsmith's score to Legend, certainly brought the film to justice, once again, and the film was meant to be that way, if it was'nt for the DVD release. This is one of the albums that it's a must own for Jerry Goldsmith's fans, because it's now one of the true classical pieces, now that he's passed on.
