Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The title theme to this soundtrack has to be one of the most bombastic--and, let's admit it, one of the catchiest--in recent memory. The CD doesn't even build up to it: "Eragon" is placed right at the beginning. At least we know what we're in for right away, as the music instantly sets up a mood of immediately accessible, old-fashioned high adventure. The targeted crowd--young, more female perhaps than the usual action fare--is confirmed by the two songs tagged at the end: Avril Lavigne's "Keep Holding On," a catchy power ballad she co-wrote with hitmaker Lukasz "Dr. Luke" Gottwald (coauthor of "Since U Been Gone"), and Jem's slightly less successful "Once in Every Lifetime," which sounds like too many end-credit thoughtful wrap-up tracks. But back to Patrick Doyle's score. It sets itself apart from a lot of the competition by the presence of actual melodies. Sure, Doyle fares better on the up-tempo numbers (like the pulse-quickening "Battle of Varden") than on the slower, moodier ones (the subdued treatment of the theme on "Roran Leaves" isn't as good as the brawling version), but overall this is a nice entry in a crowded field. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! December 20, 2006
By KKlop
Format:Audio CD
Patrick Doyle does it again. With a mix of dark and light music, this soundtrack has something for everyone. An abolute joy to listen to. I really enjoyed his take at Harry Potter, but this is crazy good. A joy for all those fantasy and soundtrack lovers. Highly recommended.

I've been a great admirer of Patrick Doyle's film scores ever since he composed his auspicious debut, the score for the Kenneth Branagh film adaptation of William Shakespeare's play "Henry V". For "Eragon" he's composed one of his most original, sweeping scores yet, which doesn't imitate at all classic film scores from the likes of John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith or Howard Shore, whom most may remember well for his elegant scores for Peter Jackson's "The Lord Of The Rings" cinematic trilogy. If anything, Patrick Doyle's latest composition owes more to Gustav Mahler's vast symphonic scores, than anything by such great American film composers like Williams and Goldsmith. But I suppose comparisons will be made when people realize that this score was performed by the London Symphony Orchestra, the United Kingdom's foremost symphony orchestra, which has recorded numerous film scores, including those for both "Star Wars" trilogies. Still, much to his credit, Doyle has composed an imaginative score which conveys successfully the vast range of emotions shown in the film by Eragon, the dragon Saphira and other major characters; it is truly a pity that this fine score is one of the few distinguished parts of what might have been a good fantasy film. Devout fans of classic film scores will most definitely wish to acquire this CD, even though it includes two songs which I don't think are nearly as memorable as those from Enya and Annie Lennox in Peter Jackson's "The Lord Of The Rings" films.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite soundtracks January 11, 2008
By Kris
Format:Audio CD
I love movie soundtracks, and this is one at the top of my list. The songs are wonderful, and as other have commented, relaxing and inspiring. The opening track, Eragon, is wonderfully written, and I love to listen to it over and over. Perhaps my favorite song is #10, Passing of the Flame. I'm a musician in a college concert band, and I think it's one of the most beautiful soundtrack songs I've heard. Every time I hear it, I get chills from the gorgeous chords. Every song is amazing. I also like the vocal pieces at the end; they are a great finishing touch. In all, this is a wonderful collection of music. Every time I play it for one of my friends, they are immediately hooked. I would definitely recommend this CD to anyone who asks me about it.

5.0 out of 5 stars My new favorite soundtrack! March 13, 2007
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
I've never put a movie soundtrack at the top of my favorites, but this one beat out any other I've ever listened to! Patrick Doyle is my new favorite movie composer (though I've been a fan of his since Harry Potter 4). All of the orchestral tracks (1-14) were amazing. Though the melody was repeated, it was repeated in variations and I never tired of it! I've NEVER liked anything I've ever heard from Avril, but Keep Holding On was fantastic! Whether you're a fan of her or not, you still should at least listen to this song. Jem's Once in Every Lifetime was equally great or maybe even a bit better than Avril's. Jem is a little...hmm, how do I put it...breathy? But it suited the song well. Even if you don't necessary like the style she sings it, the lyrics and the back-up will make up for it! Overall, this CD earns 5 stars!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Doyle At His Best March 10, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is an excellent score, both for fans of Patrick Doyle and first time listeners. It provides a very brassy theme that is a blast to listen to, and pretty sinister diddies that were a nice touch to this sweeping score.

It's classic Doyle, as he presents one of the best scores of the year for one of the worst films.

If there is one thing to complain about, it's that it closely mirrors some of Doyles own music. But, then again, can you have too much good stuff?

The songs at the end by Avril Lavigne and Jem are a fairly good listen, too. An added bonus, I'd say.

A must buy for Patrick Doyle fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the music January 11, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love this soundtrack. It's powerful & emotional. Fox spent money on the music, wish they'd done the same with the movie. The end was a disappointment. MUSIC is WONDERFUL though.
