In scoring Steven Soderbergh's litigation-themed hit (wherein Julia Roberts' tough-as-nails/sexy-mom character claws her way to an entry-level legal assistant job, then brings a multi-billion dollar industrial polluter to its knees), Thomas Newman again stakes his claim as Hollywood's most consistently inventive young composer. Or make that reinventive--Newman breaths fresh life into the traditional, theme-based scoring concept (perhaps not surprisingly; his father Alfred Newman was one of Hollywood's Golden Age masters), imbuing the film's characters with deceptively simple yet distinctly modern minimalist motifs that pulse with dramatic energy. Using a mix of electric and acoustic pianos and his by-now-familiar array of eclectic, sometimes exotic, percussion wed to an astute mastery of studio technique, Newman gets inside the narrative and drives it with masterful subtlety. Another bonus: Sheryl Crow's "Everyday Is a Winding Road" and "Redemption Day" seem an organic part of Newman's score rather than tacked-on marketing afterthoughts. All in all, it's another gem from American cinema's musical Zen master. --Jerry McCulley

This soundtrack is deceptive. What I remembered from the movie were the acoustic piano songs, and they are on here, but are only about a minute long, as is almost every track of this CD. 23 tracks, but only 35 minutes long... It does have the two Sheryl Crow songs, and those are good. The rest of the tracks are just too short to really enjoy.

I bought this Erin Brockovich for the first track, which I simply adore, but the whole album is definately worth a listen. It has a perfect balance of bright tracks (Useless, On The Plume) and the more moving tracks such as Miss Wichita and the wonderful Technically A Woman. I am a great fan of Thomas Newman's and this soundtrack did not disappiont. In regard to the Sheryl Crow tracks I feel that Redemption Day is misplaced and I usually skip this track. Everyday Is A Winding Road, however, proves a fitting conclusion to this album. Most of the tracks are too short and the mechanical sounding percussion introductions take a little getting used to, but the good much outways the bad, as most of the tracks are delightful. Four stars.

I agree with the previous reviewers: the content is good, but too short. When I first played the CD I thought it was a sampler of the soundtrack - the tracks aren't allowed to run long enough to establish the mood. It's a tad dissapointing.
