Alan Silvestri is arguably well known for his wonderful Back to the Future scores and there are slight elements of this that shine through in this soundtrack

Taking over the reigns from Jerry Goldsmith (who composed the soundtrack to The Mummy) can not have been easy, but Silvestri pulls it off well. From the wonderfully dark opening track The Legend of the Scorpion King to the closing track this soundtrack will not disappoint.

But be warned. Don't play track 19 (Forever may not be enough). This a cheesy live track which should have been buried with the Mummy.

Silvestri is alive and well and now he has another classic soundtrack to add to his CV.
