This is one of my Top 3 JW scores. I think on this project (movie and score) everything came beautifully together. It does not get much better than this.

Score: 5

Movie: 5

Although E.T. is a spectacular classic, I enjoy Raiders more.

I will say that while I prefer RAIDERS as a score, and it has some mindblowingly good stuff like 'The Map Room: Dawn', it doesn't have something that speaks to me as deeply as 'Adventures on Earth'.

Hmmm, "Desert Chase" speaks to me as deeply, I think ... maybe coupled with "To Cairo" and "Flight from Peru"!

Haha, I bet maxxie feels a bit foolish now, being the only one who gave score and movie 4.5 stars... :rolleyes:

Oh, I'm just kidding, don't give me pain!

So who is still listening regularly to the expanded Concord album??? :lol:

Not me. The DCC is where it's at.

Yes. Same here.

But I still really enjoy the Concord versions of ToD and LC...!

5 for both, perfect score, perfect movie, Spielberg and Lucas really where at the top of their game back then. I prefer Raiders, one of my Top 5 scores actually.

An absolutely stunning track indeed. It'll never stop to amaze me that Williams did Empire, Raiders, E.T., etc. in consecutive years.

:rolleyes: I've never actually seen E.T ,or listened to the score (except the "Flying Theme" track on JW Greatest Hits CD) so that's why I picked Raiders for the film choice.

As for the score, I gave it 4.5 because ToD is a solid 5 in my book, and Raiders doesn't quite give me the same enjoyment.

...What?! Rectify that immediately!

5, 5, E.T.

Well, I saw it as a kid and remember crying at the end. I know what the score's like, I just haven't got it yet. Guess I'll pick up the CE some day. ;)

I'm on a Disney binge at the moment.

I'm a sucker for a fantastic, action-packed, highly thematic score with an absolute, rip-roaring classic adventure movie.

The Indiana Jones scores, especially Raiders and Temple, are among my top scores by Williams.

And of course, Star Wars (the ORIGINAL trilogy)

:blink: never actually seen E.T....... :lol::lol::lol: GOOD ONE!

Hey, a score has not to be the all-time best in order to get 5 stars! ;)

The Concord album, except for the Desert Chase. For that, I dig out my DCC CD.

My playlist for Raiders includes the extra tracks on the bonus CD as well.

I dumped my Temple import once I got the Concord set. More music, movie order, and remastered to boot.

E.T. > Raiders Of The Lost Ark

It's all subjective, my friend...

I think people tend to rate E.T. higher (or at least used to), just because E.T. won an Oscar.

Um, no.

I agree.

Um, that too it's subjective... ;)

Ok, now there's 3 people that have voted 1 star, I mean seriously... what's the deal??

They don't count anyway!

Who me? Couldn't be! Then who? Yeah I did it.

I know, I know, sometimes that urge to be a jackass is just too much to resist. I feel your pain.

5 for the score. I give this to all of the scores in the Indy trilogy.

5 for the movie. IMO Spielberg's best all around film, nothing he's done is as perfectly realized.

I have to say I prefer E.T. to Raiders, if only because a) Raiders isn't my top Indy score (but they're all close) and b) E.T. is hard to beat by anything.
