"After scoring many, many films... I always seem to come back to this c.d which compiles three movies scores onto one and each distiguishably different from one another and it's refreshing to listen to a soundtrack that doesn't repeat the same theme over and over which is quite common. If I had to be stranded on a desert island and had a choice of c.d's to come with me, I can not be without "FILM MUSIC"... That's saying a lot of high praise for a musician that was little more than just a session trumpet player playing with the likes of The Beach Boys, Van Morrison. Van Morrison always demanded the best from his musicians or quite simply they didn't play for him at all. If you haven't seen the movie Mrs. Soffel, don't bother the music clearly out shines the movie...Lyle Mays on piano is amazing and expect lots of penny whistle, synthesizers and being that the setting takes place in Pittsburgh, the industrial sounds of a steel mill. The "Times Of Harvey Milk" is just under 9 minutes, it never gets a chance to mold into anything other than sounding alright. What ever fault there may be with "Times Of Harvey Milk" it was an important score for him to score because of him growing up in the San Francisco area, the main focally point in the documentary...Times Of Harvey Milk went on to win a Academy Award for best documentary. And lastly "Never Cry Wolf", thats what made me run out to buy the c.d in the first place. You could not ask for a better score to compliament the wintery terrain of Alaska. Although very somber through out the most part, there is a brief moment that will raise a few hairs on the back of your favorite part of the score, lots and lots of drumming. What more can I say, just run out and buy it...highly recommended."
Emotion, Courage, and Invention will haunt you

"Mark Isham has continued to be my favorite composer ever since I first discovered this album (back when vinyl was all we had). I have since watched Mr. Isham's music develop with baited anticipation. Although I find it hard to find a "favorite" in his pantheon of music, his work titled "Tibet" is still one of his most haunting pieces yet composed. I find it unique when a composer can leave you with not just a catchy melody, but an fully developed emotion.... these seem to stay longer. This album, along with "Tibert" are special to me because I can distinctly remember "feeling" several passages when I first held my newborn twin girls in my arms. Thank you Mark."
As good as it gets

"along with peter gabriel's "last temptation of christ" and john barry's work, this is the pinnacle of movie music that can also be used for driving, working hard, playing hard, or just listening. most record stores don't carry this gem because they don't know exactly where to file it. this has been in my top ten (with shawn clovin's fat city, sarah mclachlan's fumbling, peter gabriel's so and john hiatt's slow turning) for years. unless you're only into gothic metal or german accordion music, buy this cd immediately."
