Jim
There were three Superman films over the course of the years covered by this set...thankfully, they stopped before the massive mistake that was Superman IV...and though there were some big differences in the quality of the films themselves, the music has been consistently great. John Williams can honestly do no wrong, whether it's the Star Wars series or Superman, he creates classic classical music. The main Superman theme has become iconic, it has transcended the films to become instantly recognizable to fans of the character and to movie fans in general. This set is worth it for those four and a half minutes alone, and in all honesty, that may be all that you need. It's a fantastic, inspirational theme that never gets topped throughout the series. There are great bits everywhere, of course. The villains get their own themes, key moments are highlighted by energetic pieces, soft brass bits for the softer moments between Lois and Superman, but unless you are a real fan of film scores, this may be overkill. It's a must for collectors of scores or of Williams' work, and key to the history of the films, but there are few times I've found myself driving down the road and in sudden need of reliving the music of each one of Gus' actions from Superman III. So definitely get the main theme, just ask yourself how big of a fan of John Williams you are before getting the whole set. If you are a big fan, you will definitely be rewarded in this comprehensive package, as every moment feels like a piece of art...albeit one that is maybe better appreciated in the full context of the films.
