Arthur B. Lintgen
The Absolute Sound, September 2001

"Excellent recording of an extremely influential score, parts of which were reused in subsequent films. As expected, Waxman takes a far more austere and modern approach to scoring a war film than the cliched norm. Restoration, performance, and sound are impeccable."



Chris Stavrakis
Film Score Monthly

"Marco Polo's new release of Burma! is another phenomenal restoration by John Morgan and William T. Stromberg. The album encompasses Waxman's entire composition (fragments of which appeared in many subsequent Warner productions) and includes, as usual, lengthy restored segments edited from the final release print of the film. The Moscow Symphony's interpretation of the score is impeccable, so flawless that cues from the disc could be inserted into a modern motion picture without a hint as to their 'concertized' origins.... Once again, this is a priceless addition to any Golden Age collection, and it's made possible by the superlative efforts of those who truly respect and honor such lost classics."
