CD Reviews

A work of art

"This is one of those few cases where the quality of the soundtrack exceeds that of the film. The movie Unstrung Heroes was odd, and sweet, but it is the soundtrack that has made a lastling impression on my memory. Created by soundtrack mastermind Thomas Newman (American Beauty, Erin Brockovitch, Pay it Forward, Six Feet Under), this CD is a work of art. It is quirky, beautiful, touching, and highly unconventional, all in the same, surprised breath. Newman, a man whose talents seem to have taken Hollywood by storm in the past few seasons, appears to have truly outdone himself with this creation. Unstrung Heroes is the earliest work of his with his unique style, the disturbingly enigmatic music that has movie producers--and movie goers--coming back for more. Eerie whistles, hollow and mysterious windchimes, xylophone tones, and a surprising variety of other ubsurd noises fall together in this CD under Newman's talented and experienced guidance. The music he creates doesn't seem like music at all, but rather a series of melodies and sounds woven together to create complex emotions that moviegoers can relate to their own lives and memories. It's really not hard to see why this fan rated it with five stars!"
Hard to find but well worth it.

"I saw the movie about five years ago, and have been trying to find the soundtrack for it for the past three or four years. I finally won it on eBay! And when I got it I was very pleased. Thomas Newman is brilliant and this album is no exception, and is certainly his best in my opinion. The movie is one of my favorites, and so naturally I loved this album. The instruments are different from what are normally used, but nonetheless makes for a wonderful and charming CD. I would suggest searching for this one in a very good used CD store... It's very hard to find. :( That's the only problem."

"This is, by far, one of Thomas Newman's best pieces of work. I loved the movie, but the score takes the cake! If you do not own this score, you must find it! Very different."
