Tiomkin's Classic Score...
Benjamin J Burgraff | Las Vegas | 04/26/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"One can certainly find faults in John Wayne's huge 1960 production of "The Alamo", but Dimitri Tiomkin's rousing score is one of the film's major assets. Whether bittersweet ("The Green Leaves Of Summer"), whimsical ("Here's To The Ladies"), inspiring (Davy Crockett's Speech about "Republic", narrated by Wayne, himself), or rousing ("Charge Of Santa Anna / Death Of Davy Crockett / The Final Assault"), Tiomkin's mastery of musically defining key moments onscreen has never been matched. The 'epic' film, by definition, requires a huge canvas, and "The Alamo" is monumental, visually; Tiomkin gives a musical grandeur to the movie, as well as providing a very necessary 'pace', essential for a long narrative.

"The Alamo (Soundtrack)" is classic in the very best sense of the word, with Tiomkin at the peak of his skills; if you love film music that can lift you, each time you listen to it, look no further!"
