Second one. The first one is close second and followed by the third. I don't really like the fifth one and not familiar with the fourth at all.

Ooh, good one. I haven't heard the 4th or 5th as that's when my interest in the films stopped.

 

It's either the first or third for me. Newman's score is beautiful, emotional and with some nice action material. Powell stepped everything up a notch with his scores, but they're a different, busier type of scoring. I'm not sure which one I prefer.

I only saw the first 3, and only remember the first. The only cue I hae any memory of is its opening, "Opening Travel Music" (what a name!), which is pretty nice.

What I love is that each of Powell's three has a different flavor (DotD being a dinosaur romp, Continental Drift featuring some swashbuckling pirate music), yet they're thematically consistent. Meltdown is probably the most well-rounded listening experience, but the other two are great expansions.
