I haven't listen much of his work (at least that I recognized since I started tracking comductors/composers) There's Predator, the 80's Zemekis films and Ready Player One.
But I say from what I heard, I think Back to the Future Part III is his best one, I mean as a kid I always loved Part II as a film with it's high tech themes in the first act and I still like those themes in anime and I'm very salty I can't find those themes in anime anymore and I'm very resentful that Isekai, the exact opposite side of the technological development spectrum is popular, so on paper, I would think I wouldn't like Part III, but the series focuses on a form of time travel I don't believe is possible even in theoretical physics when realistic time travel would look like Galaxy Quest or the Genesis Device in Star Trek II that can reverse entropy at the expense of erasing what's there. Moving every atom backwards at least locally vs transportation (Though I find Part II to be a visual effects master piece, Captain Disillusion did it justice, I love motion control effects)
But anyway I don't find the films to be good as time travel themed films, but I find the 3rd film to be a good human journey and the music really expressed the emotions, it's like Alan is emulating the dialog and sound effects that's in the film in his music, like the steam locomotive you hear the stings trying to emulate steam and the brass is emulating pistons and explosions and the music tempo matches horse gallops at times and you hear it emulate whispers in romantic moments and I like how after the title screen after the Part I/II climax, he brings down the mood from a tense climax and over shoots and plays music where part of it sounds like a death scene music and then it fades into a more cheerful optimistic tone and then it's Howdy Doody Time! That soundtrack in particular I find it easy to pick at Alan's brain and I still hear the movie when I just listen to the soundtrack.
But that's more than enough from me, I'm curious in hearing opinions who's listen to his entire Discography.
Never scene Death Becomes Her. Decided to watch it and immediately recognize the score, soundtrack, main theme.
I know I’ve heard the music in another movie or tv show before but driving me crazy trying to figure it out. I know Silvestri has done tons of film music. Anyone know what movie I’m thinking of?
Parts at the very intro beginning, the less whimsical parts in the middle and at the 8:00 mark. https://youtu.be/Qc2McAFjSIQ?t=482
