3/9/18 Bitter Harvest   (Benjamin Wallfisch)
All New Review
Buy it... if you desire respectfully ethnic, romantically longing music for a challenging depiction of genocide, Benjamin Wallfisch supplying conservative but very well executed dramatic melodicism for this otherwise disastrous film.
Avoid it... if you require your orchestral and vocal melodrama to strike a more imposing posture for a historical tragedy, this score seemingly content to explore the majority of its themes without the overwhelming weight the topic might have demanded to engage otherwise bored audiences.
3/2/18 Viceroy's House   (A.R. Rahman)
All New Review
Buy it... if you do not doubt A.R. Rahman's ability to record a lovely and heartfelt merging of Western orchestra and Indian instrumentation and vocals for a highly lyrical and accessibly dramatic experience.
Avoid it... on the score-only album if you seek the credits' song interpolation of the score's main themes or on screen if you expect Rahman's music to be applied with satisfying consistency of presence in context.
