A lovely composition,
by
Alex (July 2, 2007)
Say what you will of the film (some moments of hilarious awkwardness notwithstanding, I thought the basic story line was wonderful, and the ambiguity of the ending is just perfect), there is no denying the music is lovely, emotive, and playful. "Love Theme" opens hesitantly, an air of uncertainty passing through the strings, but as the piano and harpischord take over, a sense of innocence and playfulness is introduced, as well as a feeling of warmth and happiness. The "Main Title" is somewhat similar, but with a much wider orchestral pallet, and "The Island" offers a frenzied orchestral grandeur one rarely hears in film scores any more. The score returns to its playful foundation with "The Sand of Times", before introducing some more sombre, melancholy material in "Paddy's Death" and "Lord of the Lagoon".
The score continues meandering between the love theme and the more open ideas before drawing to a close with yet another rendition of the love theme in "Three Points to Port; End Titles".
While this is not the absolute BEST of the best as far as emotive drama scoring goes (see Barry's "Somewhere in Time" or the like), it is nonetheless a varied, often adventerous, colorful score, and one that is most definitely worth owning.

An old favorite
by a soundtrack collector (June 2, 2007)
Who knew that an "older" soundtrack could be so invigorating? This soundtrack is actually older than I am, yet I fell in love with it when I was around 17 years old. Hunting it down then, even with access to the Net was a chore- so Im thrilled that I could download it from ITunes and convert it for my IPOD. One of my favorite scores of all time, a true classic, romantic, lush and sweeping.
