The Close Encounters score was a masterful mixture of eerie suspense and tremendous emotive bombast, complete with hair-raising moments and the great, big playful musical conversation between the mothership and the humans. Although the soundtrack album was a shoddy affair -- poorly mixed and sequenced, and missing most of the conversations -- the music portions remain essential. ~ Steven McDonald
