A delightful chestnut

"In his score for "The Indian in the Cupboard", Randy Edelman has created a perfect compliment to the movie -- a small, intimate score for a movie that tells the story of a boy, his magic cabinet, and the boy's coming of age realization that people are not to be used regardless of who they are, where they are from, or how small they are. The main title is a pleasant blend of pseudo-Native American harmonies with an almost childlike melody. Edelman makes good use of ethnic percussion in the scenes involving Little Bear, the title character. The music accompanying Omri, the young boy who brings Little Bear to life (via the magic cupboard), is a delightful little "cake-walk". The score also contains some nice moments of both action (Cowboys and Indians, Shootout) and suspense (Cupboard Disappearance, Rat Attack) that respectfully call for a more rousing full orchestral treatment and a darker and more percussive coloring. Edelman also makes good use of combining synthesizer and orchestral color on many of the tracks. I wouldn't necessarily call his score a "must-have", but it is quite good and enjoyable, nevertheless."
