(Bump) This one landed in my mailbox today, so it's getting its first pass right now. Items of interest: Sound quality far superior to the original Milan release. Also, it's nice to have the film version of the opening sequence, though I've bonded to the earlier version of the opening included on the Milan, which packs a bit more punch than the film version. Of course that one is included here also on the Disc 2 extras, and sounding better, so nothing lost. I will say that this is a score that probably works better in the film than as a separate listening experience, but I'm glad I have it and will be spending a lot of time with it over the next few days at least.

Thanks again to Doug Fake and company for a great little early summer treat (even if it's still technically spring).

Got this my self (and on Flag Day, ironic given the patriotic themes of the film).

I agree, the album version of the main titles is the better version.

I'm definitely enjoying this release, but it doesn't quite work as a listening experience.

I think the OST was a good presentation from a listening perspective.

There are some gems not on the OST however, such as the finale.

Its been many many years since I've seen this film (or read the books for that matter). How is the music? I don't have the original release, for some reason or other I failed to get this or Patriot Games but did get Horner's "The Devil's Own".

THE DEVIL'S OWN and PATRIOT GAMES are much more of a piece than CAPD. CAPD is more along the lines of APOLLO 13, though obviously it's more action-oriented than suspenseful. Unwaveringly patriotic, with a noble (the end credits is titled "Truth Needs a Hero" fer chrissakes smile), stirring main theme and some lengthy, propulsive action cues.

If nothing else, it's worth it for "The Ambush" alone, one of the best things Horner ever wrote.

Did anyone else notice that the synth line is missing from "Second Hand Copter"? It seems to be in the film though. Weird. Great release though!

Yes, the synth line from "Second Hand Copter" and some anvil hits at the end of "Ambush" are missing.
The alternate film ending of "The Laser-Guided Missile" remains unreleased, too.
Special thanks to Mink for the additional info!

The new stuff outweighs the missing parts of course, but I guess completists should hold on to their Milan CDs.

So that synth line and the anvil hits are on the Milan CD you say? Any other tracks that are different on the Milan CD as compared to the Intrada?

Not that I have noticed so far.

"The Laser-Guided Missile" is slightly longer on the Intrada release, because it had been originally edited down for the OST.

The passage that contributes "Escobedo's New Friend, Part 2" was also edited down on the Milan release.

Its been many many years since I've seen this film (or read the books for that matter). How is the music?

It's an eclectic score. It varies from full blown orchestral splendor, to synth with the sukuukukuatchi (or whatever) , and low suspense or dark pieces. It's probably the most varied Horner score I've heard, mostly because the film is a kind of mash up of the action genre and paranoid thriller. For my personal taste, I prefer the livelier stuff and there's very little here that I enjoy which wasn't on the Milan album - with the HUGE exception of the action finale. Those are amazing, some of Horner's best action writing and for those alone (and the improved sound), it was worth the purchase. My own edit is more of a "Milan album with the finale" and the film version of the theme.

I am wondering : why some of you complained about Lalaland with The challenge and not Intrada with Clear and present danger? Is it not the same problem? ...

Because Jerry Goldsmith was a megagenius who used an everyday cooking implement in a brilliant and inventive way and James Horner plugged in a keyboard?

Love this answer!

"Deleting The Evidence" on the Intrada CD has a different take than the Milan CD
