AllMusic Review by

The Soundtrack Factory's version of the score for Sergei Eisenstein's Alexander Nevsky is what it is: an accurate reproduction of Sergei Prokofiev's score for the film. Musically, it is dark, dramatic, brilliant, and epic. The sonics, however, leave much to be desired, as the source tape is badly deteriorated. While it is the Factory's stock in trade to do only original scores, this one might better have been left off of CD. Other orchestral reproductions of the music are available, and while they weren't recorded for the film in particular, but as reinterpretations, they fare far better than this one because of its poor sound quality.
