CD Reviews

Surprisingly good.

"The two previous "25th anniversary celebrations" from Varèse Sarabande are a must in any music library, not to mention if one likes cinema music (the real contemporary symphonic music, in my opinion). I was a little reluctant about this one at first, as it covers a very short time span (only five years), and many of the movies are unheard of...at least for me (I do confess I have disappointedly abandoned Western cinema for Far East one for quite some time now). However, the quality of the music is simply breathtaking. Virtually every track is worth to be listend to attentively. Pure musical enjoyment. Get it while supply lasts!!"
Not to be missed

"The 25th anniversary collection was fabulous so I ordered this the minute I heard it was released...it does not disappoint. It covers the last 5 years gamut of films from lightweight to challenging musicalities. (personal favorite the more exotic disc 2). It is almost overwhelming trying to take in so many different films and guessing the composers to match the soundtracks. Thank you for also including a track from Lost - a real surprise. Producers - please don't make us wait another 5 years for another one!"
A lot of music for a great deal

"This Varese Sarabande 30th Anniversary Cd set is a collection of film music released from 2003 to 2008. There's something for just about any film score fan here. I don't imagine anyone would love the whole thing, but my guess is that there will at least a few tracks from each disc that you'll enjoy. This is especially great for film score fans that haven't been keeping up with recent releases. Personal favorites of mine are the Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium, All the King's Men, Lost, and Racing Stripes among others.

At the end of the day, though, you just can't beat that price for that much music. There's more than one CD's worth of good music here (even to the pickiest listener) for only one CD's price."
