I only just listened to the music by itself today.
D. Brown
The opening impression in this work is that of shifting, surging minimalism, with cascades of strings woven over and about each other like a loom made of tides.
Storylover
I love it when a script, director, and the score of a film do their best in relation TO EACH OTHER.

You would think it would be quite difficult to make an interesting film about baseball statistics, but that's what the makers of Moneyball have done. It tells the story of the wonderfully-named Billy Beane who, in 2002, having been recently made the general manager of the struggling Oakland Athletics MLB franchise, who rocks the baseball world to its core by embracing a controversial new statistical method of choosing players to sign in an attempt to turn around the fortunes of his team. Directed by Bennett Miller and based on a popular book by Michael Lewis, the film stars Brad Pitt as Beane, Jonah Hill as his assistant Peter Brand, and features Robin Wright, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Chris Pratt and Casey Bond in supporting roles.

The music for Moneyball is by Mychael Danna, who scored Miller's previous movie Capote in 2005. In many ways Danna faced a task almost as difficult as Miller and his screenwriters: for a film without a musical hook - no musically distinct geographical location, no time period to influence the score - how do you write a score which captures the drama of the story, and remains musically interesting? The answer, in this instance, is very well indeed. Danna scored the film like a powerful drama - all surging strings, rhythmic tempos, tempered with moments of calm lyricism - which is quite engaging.

Much of the score is concerned with minimalist action, with a single instrument carrying its rhythmic core, while other parts of the orchestra express themselves around and about this central motif. The main title, "One Out Away", is a collision of shifting, interlocking string ostinati, an idea repeated later in the see-sawing pair of "Coaching" and "It's a Process", as well as the driving "More", which has an especially powerful cello motif at its core.

The opening impression in this work is that of shifting, surging minimalism, with cascades of strings woven over and about each other like a loom made of tides. The feeling recurs many times in the score, with those waves of rhythmic, regular, shifting, never quite the same sounds building into a solid tapestry of sound...and just when you think you have it, it stops, and a musical moment of peace comes over the score...spare chords touched on the piano. The whole thing comes across as beautiful and subtle. It's joys reveal themselves immediately, but it retains sufficient mystery to keep you engaged. Fantastic and lovely.

The music by itself is a wonderful listen. I only just listened to the music by itself today. But I came to review the album based on it's effectiveness in the film. The music took the film to new heights for me. I couldn't believe how it entered my ears and went straight to my heart with ease. Of course the motion picture itself helped in that greatly.

But I've seen equally moving performances in films that didn't work as well when there was a crummy soundtrack. This soundtrack was just as effective as all other elements in the film.

I don't normally look for the scores of a film to listen to myself, but this one I did because it was that good. The most recent previous soundtrack that moved me as much was for American Beauty.

I fell in love with "Life Of Pi" and was scouting out more of Mychael Danna's scores. I guess I was hoping this one would be better than it was. It's OK listening, but not quite for me.

This soundtrack I fell in love with before I saw the movie. Just watched however and love the soundtrack even more. The movie is 5 stars in my book as well.
