CD Reviews

Bernard Herrmann at his best
C. A. Luster | Burke, VA USA | 12/07/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Bernard Herrmann is one of the best composers in the last century. He was capable of conveying emotions with incredible music. His scores always evoked responses from audiences that helped movie directors make their point. Being a big fan of Ray Harryhausen and Alfred Hitchcock, I always was happy to see when Bernard Herrmann did the scores for any of their movies. Herrmann made any of their great movies become magnificent with his beautiful themes. I bought this CD many years ago and it is one of the best movie theme CDs you will ever find. Especially for fans of SciFi and Fantasy movies."
Fantastic

"This CD features some of Bernard Herrmann's best music. Each track is awesome. Awesome as in awe-inspiring. My favorite Herrmann disc, and I've got a lot of Herrmann.

*Anybody notice the similarity between the opening few minutes of "Journey to the Centre of the Earth" and Danny Elfman's main Batman theme? It's uncanny. Did Danny Elfman plagiarize this?"
One of the first in my Herrmann collection

"Yeah, the purchase of this one was over twenty-five years ago, but it introduced this listener to an institution in the field of film scoring. Four of his most challenging works are represented here, chief among them, the highly influential score to the Robert Wise legendary film "The Day the Earth Stood Still". Herrmann's music is as thought provoking and enigmatic as the film for which it was crafted."Gort" woulda been proud.
Quibbling about the cost? Well, a true fan would have bought it on its initial release.

That's what happens with a missed opportunity; you've got to "pay the piper"."
