Exceptional music, without it the movie would have been long forgotten. The acting was, in fact C- the script B- yet what a masterpiece of history now almost exclusively due to the score and music performance. . . they don't make-em like this anymore... Awesome.

You know those songs that you work out to at the gym....Conan was the ONLY music I used

This music is a masterpiece! I never get tired of listening to it. One of my all time favorites.

What about Klendathu Drop from Starship Troopers? That would possibly make the best station seed of all time!

This is Basil's finest Film work. Simply a masterpiece to be enjoyed by all Dice Slingers, Gamers and those who wield the plastic lightsabers.

There is so much depth in this entire soundtrack. However, I do believe they should have expanded more with the melodies from The Search.

I am not sure whether the soundtrack of Hunt for Red October is listed but if not, it should be as it a wonderful soundtrack.

I wish Pandora had his Robocop stuff. It's not so stand-alone- a m a z i n g , but it's still great.

One of the most underrated music scores in film history. This score is simply a masterpiece, and goes far beyond being and staple sound track to table top gamers.

Honestly, my favorite work of Basil P's-- and I mean by several lengths (in a body of work that is both remarkable and wide-ranging ) - - is the sort of honky-tonk/r a g t i m e march theme from QUIGLEY DOWN UNDER. It's one of my favorite pieces of music of all time, but I think the fact that it was anchored to such a forgettable film has sadly doomed it for all time to undeserved obscurity. Can't even find a scoring for it anywhere-- would LOVE to see it done by our High School's wind ensemble.

I urge you to sit and listen to this as if it were a classical composition by any of the legendary composers. It holds up, listen after listen, year after year. It's, by turns, breathtaking , melancholy, stirring. I own the DVD of a live peformance, and I count myself lucky.

I'd like to see a more detailed bio here. The entire Conan soundtrack is one of my all time favorites.

This may seem odd, but I find the most strikingly appealing bit of his work is from the fim Wind

Why is Hunt for the Red October not here? Hymn to the Red October is awesome.

Starship Troopers music was made by his daughter Zoe (among others), not Basil himself.

I like it since it brings me back to the days of high adventure but that is another story.

Hadn't heard this piece in sometime, when music can bring back the movie scene in your mind, it means it was fine piece of work!

Great stuff. Fits the subject matter really well. The Orgy always reminds me of the Jupiter movement of Holst's The Planets.
