While the score will be available as shitty download in US only, it seems that we are getting the pressed CD in EU!

Shitty downloads are the future ... ! wink

I predict that in 5 years from now there won't be any major releases on CD any more.

Charming score. Loved the film, too.

Shapiro does a nice mix of traditional melodies and modern soundscapes, always rooting them in an emotionally engaging context.

I saw the film this week and enjoyed it.
It's a bit overlong for the twee story it's telling and reminded me (don't know why) a bit of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Benjamin Button (which it jokingly referenced/parodied).
It was a nice film and passed the time pleasantly enough.
The music was okay, but a bit formless and all over the place, obviously acting as connective tissue to the many anthemic songs that played throughout the film.
Don't think I'd buy the CD but a few tracks from each album (score and song) wouldn't go amiss.

I don't remember that scene on the score cover above ??

I'm really loving the score. We enjoyed the film quite a bit. It should speak to a lot of people who feel trapped in a corporate environment and want to live a little. The rich colors of the score perfectly support and elevate the fantasies of Walter Mitty. And the love theme is beautiful. Teddy Shapiro has a great musical personality. Marley & Me still stands as one of my favorites in the past 5 years.
