9/27/06Shine: (David Hirschfelder) - Expanded Review
Buy it... if you enjoy masterful performances of some of the world's most challenging classical piano pieces.

9/24/06The Crying Game: (Anne Dudley) - Expanded Review
Buy it... if you enjoyed the dominant songs in the film, including the Boy George version of the title song.

9/20/06Keeper of the City: (Leonard Rosenman) - Expanded Review
Buy it... only if you have seen the film and appreciated the underscore.
Avoid it... if you are only a casual Leonard Rosenman collector and are not overly impressed by his rather tepid suspense writing.

9/16/06Eve's Bayou: (Terence Blanchard) - Expanded Review
Buy it... if you're curious about Terence Blanchard's film scores and want to start with one of his most culturally precise and elegantly engaging entries.
Avoid it... if black, Southern Gothic sounds, and the jazz quartet at their center, hold no interest for you.

9/13/06Avalon: (Randy Newman) - Expanded Review
Buy it... if you enjoy intimate period scores for solo instruments on top of small, whimsical ensembles.
Avoid it... if you prefer your Randy Newman music to strike you with personality and rhythmic flair.
Rating:**   Read the entire review


9/10/06Bound: (Don Davis) - Expanded Review
Buy it... if you enjoy engaging and intelligent suspense scores and/or Don Davis' typically strong instrumental creativity.
Avoid it... if you prefer your noir-ish scores to have a strong identity, or were hoping for the score to reflect more of the eroticism of the film.
Rating:***   Read the entire review


9/7/06Masters of the Universe: (Bill Conti) - Expanded Review
Buy it... if you enjoy any ambitious, large-scale variation on Holst's "The Planets" and John Williams' similar adaptations.
Avoid it... if you hold the music from the original television show true to your heart, for Bill Conti ignores its established themes.
Rating:**   Read the entire review


9/4/06Robotjox: (Frederic Talgorn) - Expanded Review
Buy it... if you enjoy Frederic Talgorn's romantic style of thematic development or the brassy fanfares that often accompanied the larger-than-life robot genre.
Avoid it... if the cheese factor in these simplistic B-film scores is just too great to overcome.
Rating:****   Read the entire review


9/1/06Fortress: (Frederic Talgorn) - Expanded Review
Buy it... only if you relished the suspenseful and brooding orchestral score in the film itself.
Avoid it... if you've enjoyed some of Frederic Talgorn's more melodic and dynamic scores and are looking for more of the same.
