Editorial Reviews

Kate Winslet, Patrick Wilson, and Jennifer Connelly star in the latest work from Oscar-nominated writer/director Todd Field. Based on the novel by Tom Perrotta ("Election"), "Little Children" centers on a handful of individuals whose lives intersect on the playgrounds, in town pools, and on the streets of their small community in surprising and potentially dangerous ways. Features music from Academy Award nominee Thomas Newman, whose extensive work in film and television brings a unique orchestral style to the film's score.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bandshell June 2, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
-This is probably one of the most peaceful scores I've ever heard. It's the type that you listen to when you're done doing stuff you're not suppose to do till you're married and in the mood for something quiet and not something that makes your ears bleed. Fans of great composer Thomas Newman will no doubt be in familiar territory with the score which features classic Newman sounds like beautiful string writing and that sad little piano, but not to fear since he doesn't just simply rip himself off, but writes a very refreshing score.

-The highlight on the album for me is fantastic "Bandshell" track. I think it's for the gorgeous shot in the movie when Brad is watching the kids skate in slow motion. It starts off in an almost comedic way with pizzicato strings then the bowed strings kick in playing a very peaceful tune that just warms your heart. Newman also throws in a skittering piano around the 45 sec. mark which always reminds me of Danny Elfman for some reason. He also throws in some synths and it actually works in this case and blends in nicely with the strings instead of standing out or giving one a headache.

-Other great tracks include "It's Wrong and It's Weird", "Lucy", "Pool Days", "Mae", "Be a Good Boy" and of course the fantastic "End Titles". "It's Wrong and It's Weird" accompanies the first sex scene and Newman absolutely nails the whole odd nature of that scene. The two characters are glad they're doing it, but at the same time feel weird and the music captures that weirdness very nicely. "Lucy", "Pool Days" "Be a Good Boy", and "Mae" are all lovely string and piano pieces with some very cool other worldly synths thrown in there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thomas Newman - every time a new man! February 20, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Thomas Newman definetaly ought to earn an Oscar for this score. It's simply amazing. As one listens to it, he can see the whole life. All the feelings, that exist in the world, are in this music. Love, hatred, fear, anger, rage, calmness, sorrow, and so on, and so forth. As if we listened to life itself. Newman is a master of orchestrating, we can hear phantastic instruments, and the electronic noises are mixed perfectly with the classical intstruments, such as the flute. Newman's music is always a new experience, always a great journey for the mind. This time is no exception.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best track from film not here! March 7, 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is a five star score, but a two star album. The absolute best piece in the film is the End Credits, but the recording on this album is a completely different version, with enormously different orchestration. The brutal percussion that dominates the film version is not here at all, changing the tone of the piece entirely, and the second half of the album version wanders off into a strange ethereal piece that is not heard in the fiml at all. I had to buy a copy of the DVD to get the "End Credits" I loved so much in the theater. Why, oh why, did they not put that piece on the album?

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE IT! July 15, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Everytime I listen to this soundtrack, It always blows me away. The themes are simple yet effective. I didn't find the movie all that wonderful, but that didn't stop me from loving this soundtrack. Newman builds a score mixed with beautiful themes, dark tones and some light hearted themes. Love the tracks "Red Bathing Suit", "Snack Time", "It's Wrong and It's Weird". Love the whole CD but those tracks I thought were terrific.
