A friend let me borrow this movie recently and I wasn't very impressed by it. However I was quite taken by the Randy Edelman score. In fact, I think it is quite beautiful. I had not seen anything here on it so thought I would bring it to your attention. Perhaps worth a listen for some of you.

I'm a Randy Edelman fan, so I ordered it -- $4 + $3.99 shipping. Hope I like it!

TO RON -Beautiful is a strong word, you probably will. Over the years I have observe when it comes to comments and reviews on film scores that when one uses words like beautiful or gorgeous or sublime etc I never was disappointed. I surely would trust EDWZOOMOM opinion on those words. I will check it out too.

Ron, I truly think you will not be disappointed. If you go to iTunes, you can listen to the digital samples. I actually did this after I struggled through the movie and it confirmed my initial impression. Love it. Let me know your thoughts.


dan, thank you for the compliment. I doubt my opinion holds that much credence here but I do appreciate the possibility. Everyone would love to think they have a positive influence right? You too have cited some selections here that I sampled and really enjoyed and appreciate. smile

Thanks, edwzoomom. Five minutes after I placed the order I thought "Why didn't you first check it out in iTunes?" It's on its way, due later this week. I'll let you know what I think of it. And I agree with dan, that when someone uses words like "beautiful" to describe music, it probably is, although, as we also know, beauty is too often in the eye or the ear of the beholder. Fingers are crossed!

I received the CD today and it is quite lovely. I played it on the main system this afternoon, and it sounded very nice, but it made me wish it were night so I could listen to it in the dark -- bet it'll sound great in pitch dark! Thanks for telling us about it.

Ron, I am thrilled that you like it. My copy has yet to arrive so I am a bit jealous. I think it is a lovely score that is readily available at a reasonable price. Enjoy it and you are welcome.

Randy Edelman is so underrated.
