Recently revised versions of the following reviews are now available:


Blue Icon
7/25/12 Up Close & Personal  (Thomas Newman) - All New Review
Buy it... with caution even if you are a Thomas Newman collector, for the romantic highlights of this score are tepid and infrequent.
Avoid it... if warmth in melody and performance is your expectation, the lack that key element in the score compensated for by the famous Celine Dion song heard in the film but not included on the soundtrack album.

7/17/12 Identity  (Alan Silvestri) - All New Review
Buy it... if you love punishing yourself with wretched sound effects and dissonant orchestral techniques that could appropriately drive a person insane.
Avoid it... if you believe for an instant that Alan Silvestri might tackle the horror passages in this atmospheric nightmare with the same intelligence and muscularity exhibited in his respected action works.

Icon
7/9/12 Red Corner  (Thomas Newman) - All New Review
Buy it... if you need reinforcement that China is a place of nightmares for Westerners, in which case Thomas Newman's brutally challenging use of that country's stereotypical instrumental tones will further dissuade you from ever wanting to travel there.
Avoid it... if you have little tolerance for film music that inelegantly forces a socio-political dichotomy upon you, Newman's symphonic relief for the protagonists too disparately heroic despite yielding eight minutes of beautiful material for the album.
