5.0 out of 5 stars Chilling versions of the best scores ever written April 23, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This cd is an essential for any person that particularly enjoys the score in films. Epics is a full length cd containing 14 songs performed by the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra under Erich Kunzel.
Usually, I am weary of cds that come out with songs from movies that aren't the original recordings, but I have to say there should be no worries with this cd. The songs remain exactly the same in tempo and sound as you hear them in the movies.
The choices for this cd was amazing. Every song that you hear are the songs that make the movie it is in, most often giving you chills and goosebumps as the music encompasses you into the movie (like what happened to me when I saw Lord of the Rings). From the Theme from 2001: a Space Oddysey to Star Wars: Attack of the Clones to Lord of the Rings, these songs are performed beautifully with a clear and crisp sound.
I am hoping for an Epics II to be released someday, but in the meantime, check this out, you will NOT be dissappointed!

3.0 out of 5 stars Dull Epics September 27, 2006
Format:Audio CD
EPICS is plagued by the muddled sound of TELARC's recordings. I noticed this trend beginning with TELARC's Hollywood's Greatest Hits, Vol. 2. The recoding seems flat. Also, this recording is a bit bombastic and just not representative of the original scores. The Suite from Gladiator is a good case in point. It glosses right over the basic themes presented in the film with an annoying nonce lance.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing September 27, 2006
Format:Audio CD
EPICS is very disappointing. It is nowhere up to the usual standards of the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra. The recordings are harsh and just too showy. There is no heart, only might and if these are supposed to be epics, what is MINORITY REPORT doing there?

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! May 17, 2011

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Sounds great on my home audio system. I am not a big Classical music fan but the music in this recording sounds great. I recommend this to anyone, but especially to those who don't often listen to classical music. It also will sound better if your stereo has a subwoofer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super collection, performance, recording January 5, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Epics [Hybrid SACD] is a top notch collection of movie themes. I find it satisfying in every way. Couldn't recommend it more highly!

That's what I think, now perhaps a couple of words to help you know whether you would like it. First, the music is largely "epic" pieces. Short, often martial, generally with typical modern movie classical flavor. Rhythmic. Orchestral. If you know and like any of the standard pieces represented here, you'll like most of the music chosen. There are a couple of selections that are just beautiful melodic pieces, which, in a way provides a little gentle, sweet frosting on a very imposing cake.
