Editorial Reviews

Original soundtrack to the 2010 film from director Danny Boyle includes a collaboration with composer A.R. Rahman and Dido as well as other instrumental score themes by Rahman, plus classics by Esther Phillips, Plastic Bertrand, and Bill Withers, plus new music from Sigur R¢s and Free Blood. The featured new song "If I Rise," is the first collaboration between internationally renowned Grammy, Golden Globe and Oscar winner A.R. Rahman and Dido, the mega-platinum two-time Grammy Award-nominated and 4-time BRIT Award-winning British singer and songwriter. The atmospheric and transcendent music score of Academy Award-winning composer A.R. Rahman is at the heart and soul of the inspiring new 127 Hours, the true story of Aron Ralston, a trapped mountain climber and his ordeal in the Utah wilderness.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eclectic combinations confirm Rahman's versatility November 11, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
The true story of Aron Ralston is one of human fortitude, bravery, defiance in the face of death, and incredible bad luck. A young and healthy daredevil with a penchant for extreme sports, Ralston took a brief weekend hiking trip to the canyons around Moab, Utah in the summer of 2003, and had the singular misfortune of suffering an accident which left his right arm pinned against a canyon wall by a large boulder, with no way of extricating it. After five lonely days, and hovering close to death, Ralston eventually took the unimaginable decision to amputate his own arm - with no anesthetic - using nothing more than a blunt Swiss Army knife, and staggered out of the canyon, where he was rescued and ultimately made a full recovery.

Director Danny Boyle's film 127 Hours, which stars James Franco as Ralston, chronicles these events in graphic detail (so much so that patrons have been fainting in the aisles during the amputation scene), but is reported to be a positive and life-affirming film which celebrates the human spirit and the will to survive. For the music, Boyle once again turned to Indian composer A.R. Rahman, who won a Best Score Oscar for their last collaboration on Slumdog Millionaire. As was the case with Rahman's first American feature, Couples Retreat, 127 Hours again confirms that Rahman is a composer of great talent and creativity who is capable of much, much more than happy songs and Bollywood dance numbers.

Having said that, 127 Hours is certainly not a score which will appeal to everyone. In addition to the orchestra, there is a great deal of rock music, and many electronic and synthetic enhancements, some of it quite harsh and abrasive, which will likely turn off listeners not accustomed to such things.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing collection...Superb composition from ARR November 7, 2010
By Jay
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
A.R.Rahman shows his versatility by this album. Most of the original sound tracks use guitar as the base instruments and develops various theme. Liberation begins, liberation in dreams are adrenaline pumping sound track. It builds considerable momentum starting with a simple guitar and adds more and more instrument continuously. Acid darbari is my favorite track. It is based on an classical indian raga called darbari known mainly played in the night and can have profound emotional impact on the listeners. A.R.Rahman touches all time high emotional impact with this Acid Darbari sound track. "If I rise" is a beautifully blended soundtrack with the soothing voice of Dido, ARR and children choir. Another masterpiece that fits well with the film. All other songs in the album are beautiful and I have never heard them before. Loved each sound track very much.

4.0 out of 5 stars Captures the exhiliration of wild, open spaces March 13, 2011
Format:Audio CD
As has been emphasized in other reviews this will not appeal to a mainstream audience, however, if you loved the movie this soundtrack will keep it alive for you for a long time. The songs are in the same sequence as the movie and mostly instrumental, with a wide variety of tempos and moods, some based on Indian music, others pure driving rock/techno and even a classical piece. It's great background music for a roadtrip to Utah-A.R. Rahman has done a brilliant job capturing the exhilirating feel of wild, open spaces. If you saw the movie and couldn't wait to go to Utah, you'll understand and appreciate this soundtrack. It only gets 4 stars because the great guitar song at the beginning of the movie, where Aron takes off on a wild mountain bike ride, was omitted! If anyone knows the name of this song please mention it here!

These songs will take time to appeal the common audience, because A R Rahman's score is usually composed in meditative spirit with lot of deep intuition, and like most of his songs - you need to first let it in and then you get to appreciate the beauty of them. The "Liberation" songs are very meditative, it has a Tibetan Buddhist, Indian and Western flavor all together combined with the geniusness of A.R.Rahman. If you listen they calm your mind - Suggest listening in a surround system - they sound mind boggling!! A genius creates, inspires and the world follows - A R Rahman is a Genius bringing the beauty of Indian spiritual music combined with the passions of the western world to the audience !

Outrageous chords, beats, lyrics, vocals that blend into one of the best soundtracks for a very special story that breaks a heart and puts it back together. Musical arrangers and composers, own your triumph! You've entertained us with the very best. Must have.Love to go back and listen all the time.
