Movie Music UK Reviews ‘Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny’ Soundtrack Album

“Some of this criticism has even extended to John Williams’s score, which some respected voices have criticized for being thematically underwhelming, slow, and even boring in places. This is where I diverge; I thought the music was outstanding. It’s tempting to give in to sentimentality and nostalgia when reviewing any new John Williams score; as I write this the man is 91 years old, and for any person of that age to do anything with this much skill and craft is astonishing. Not only that, he is working with a cache of music themes that I have loved since my childhood, writing music for a film franchise that I love, in a style that I love – it’s difficult to be objective when faced with those circumstances. But, having forced myself to try to be as unbiased as I can, I still think that Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is an outstanding work, which composers half his age would sell their souls to be able to write.”
