"Okay, okay, I'll admit it, I gave into the "dark side." I watched Little Women and loved it. Even more dissapointing to my fellow men is the fact that I bought the soundtrack and LOVED IT! I let go of all the masculine undertones I possessed and took a nice steamy bubble bath with this musical score playing in the background. It is a beautiful score, with each and EVERY track a delightful refuge of music. This is a great score to read a book to on a rainy day. Guys, let go and give in. I know you'll love it too! LOL"
Newman produces a complex and very American soundtrack

"Thomas Newman has written a number of film soundtracks, but none finer than his 1994 efforts for "Little Women." In the opening "Orchard House (Main Title)," he manages to accomplish an enormous amount in three minutes and twenty-nine seconds: sketching the warmth in the March household, the presence and importance of church in the social life of a New England village, the distant threat of drumbeats as Civil War soldiers do their duties on battlefields far from the March girls, and the whirl of seasonal tasks and social pleasantries.Some of the songs are so short as to be almost trifling--many are quite a few bit shorter than a full minute. Yet all serve the larger picture of showing us the rush and throb of life in this town, in this family, and the relationships among these close sisters and the men they ultimately love. In "A Telegram," Newman makes the strings sound positively breathless with anticipation while the flute soars smoothly overhead.Once Jo goes off to New York to make a name for herself as a writer, she is accompanied by Newman's brassier, more confident music, musically demonstrating the change from her more circumscribed life in New England. And for those who love movie trivia, what fun to be able to say you know on what album "Spiderman" star Kirsten Dunst actually sings--as she does here in "For The Beauty of the Earth," along with her co-stars Trini Alvarado and Claire Danes."
The best soundtrack ever!

"Little Women is my absolute favorite movie- and the soundtrack accompanies it so well! The melodies are so haunting and full of emotion- I listen to it all the time, reading and falling asleep. Buy this CD! It's the prettiest soundtrack music you'll ever hear"
