Thankfully, Jerry Goldsmith's contribution to The Mummy isn't all bombast. In fact, the composer behind such varied scores as The Omen, Chinatown, and Planet of the Apes throws a little bit of everything into The Mummy's sonic stew and turns in a semi-memorable score that never seems to slow down for too long. Goldsmith weds swatches of Middle Eastern-sounding melodies into the primarily synth-driven score to good effect on such tracks as "Giza Port" and "The Caravan." Frenetic string and percussive passages in "Night Borders" and "Mumia Attack" are plenty tense, but also feature otherworldy sci-fi sound effects, while on "Rebirth" the sounds of synth'd voices make for an ethereal effect over the orchestrations. Mummified this score isn't, but clichéd it, unfortunately, is.
