Revell delivers a great score

"Graeme Revell's instrumental music for "The Crow" is truly one of the outstanding film scores of the 1990s. The film contains some very dark and disturbing subject matter. The story occurs in a nightmarishly apocalyptic city, and follows the adventures of an undead hero (a memorable performance by Brandon Lee) on an often violent mission of revenge.Graeme meets the challenge of this cinematic vision brilliantly. The music for the film blends the feeling of classic film scoring with a contemporary pop/rock vibe. The tone of the music is dark, but contains moments of hopeful beauty.One of the really noteworthy aspects of this score is the exotic flavor that permeates it. Revell achieves this partly through the innovative use of ethnic instruments: the liner notes list the Armenian dudek and the shakuhachi among the instruments used. Frenzied percussive effects and bells also add to the overall feel of the music. Revell's score also makes effective use of choral voices to attain a haunting, mystical effect.Serious students of film scoring should definitely listen to this innovative music. "The Crow" is a dark, romantic, and beautiful achievement."
ONE OF MY ALL-TIME FAVORITE SCORES

"What an amazing accomplishment, Graeme Revell is to be applauded. This music goes beyond words. It goes straight to the heart. Music should do that. Music is a universal language that is capable of expressing emotions so deep and complex that there are no words to fully express. Rare is music that lives up to this feat. The Crow score does so brilliantly. I never tire of it. And I never will. Buy this, dim the lights, lie down and listen. Truly listen. Close your eyes and feel the power of heart and soul inside. It is in you and waiting to come out. Soar, my friends.Soaring Heart"
