Celebrate 65 years of film music from the biggest box-office
hits of all-time. From Max Steiner's lush theme for Gone
With The Wind which defines the magic of the cinema through
to Michael Giacchino's powerful music for the state-of-the-art
The Incredibles, this is a journey through a wonderland
of some of the most evocative themes from the silver screen.
This lavish collection provides an instant entry point to
the greatest cinema music of our time...
Incredible Film Music Box is
a fantastic four disc collection, but whether this is to your
taste will depend very much on your interest in soundtracks
- if you only really want an album that collects together
the main themes of some of the greatest movies of all time
(and a few not so hot) then you'll love this collection.
movie buffs might like to give it a wide berth though. During
the 80s I was a huge soundtrack collector (yes, I know - I
am a geek) so for the majority of tracks from the third disc
I already own the entire album for each movie. As is to be
expected with compilations of this kind, the tracks that are
included are either the main themes, or those tracks which
are the most famous.
it's getting tiresome how many movie compilations are starting
to include the same tracks. Yup, you've guessed it the following
are included: 2001: A Space Odyssey, Star Wars, The Good,
the Bad and the Ugly, Psycho, Blade Runner and Titanic.
So if you already own a few compilation albums, the chances
are you are going to have quite a few of the tracks already.
It would have been refreshing to see some of the other music
from these movies instead of trotting out the same piece of
music. For example, why not include the Well of the Souls
track from Raiders of the Lost Ark instead of
the Raiders March? I couldn't listen to the third disc
- especially when the tracks chosen don't necessarily represent
the best music from each movie - but as I mentioned earlier
it's a good overall collection of main themes.
are some fantastic tracks on the fourth disc - which have
whetted my appetite to get back into collecting soundtracks.
In fact, as we speak I'm about to hot foot it to Amazon and
see if I can buy the full soundtrack to Braveheart
and Saving Private Ryan.
compilation albums go, this is about as near to perfection
as you are going to get. The question is do you want another
compilation album in your collection?
