CD Reviews

Easily the best soundtrack I've ever heard!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Beyond all doubt, this is one CD I can recommend without reservation. Overlooked because of this film's general failure, the unbelievable score by Newman is a success. All of the themes evoke a classic feeling of sweeping saga and superheroic exploits, particularly the pulse-pounding, exciting third track, which is the Phantom's theme. THIS is the soundtrack you heard in all those movie trailers for the Mask of Zorro!"
Heroic and adventurous

"This is a big symphonic heroic and adventurous score performed with might and power. The London Metropolitan Orchestra simply excels in this score. David Newman uses soaring brass fanfares, a knockout heroic theme, some romantic material, and action music that simply blows you away. The first two tracks are ominous in nature and start things off on the creepy side with pounding jungle drums and an all male chorus. That all changes however, with "The Phantom" which showcases the heroic main theme with powerful action music. The theme itself is a 7 note brass motif that perfectly captures the hero of the film. "The Escape" is another impressive action cue with bold brass and driving percussion. "The Museum" is a dark and ominous track, while "Flying to the Island" is the exact opposite of that, with a soaring orchestral sound. The love theme is found in "Must Be the Humidity" which is a sweeping, epic motif played mainly on strings. Another instrument that is used throughout this score is the pan flute, played by Tony Hinnigan and Mike Taylor, which gives the sound an ethnic feel. The last track, "Escaping the Island", is an 8 minute brass finale that really burns. Anyone who is a fan of action adventurous symphonic music or David Newman will definitely enjoy this score."
Simply excellent to enjoy

"This album has got class and the orchestra gives you what you wanted: a very good adventure vibe with a dose of mystic hero story. This album does not pretend to be the best of David Newman...But I believe it is one of the best and it is fully genuine in its simplicity but power of sound."
