4.0 out of 5 stars A soothing and charming experience June 20, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Rahman is one of the most gifted composers this world has ever seen. If you only know of his Hollywood projects and you like what you hear, you have been missing out on a mountain of genius compositions (songs and score) that he has created in India over the last 2 decades. His previous 3 Hollywood scores, (Slumdog Millionaire, Couple's Retreat, and 127 Hours), featured Indian styles, sounds and raagas blended beautifully through various other world music genres just too many to count. The "musical alchemist" or "mad musical scientist" as I fondly think of him, never sounds pastiche, however, no matter the extent of genre blending and fusion. What emerges is a fresh originality and universal appeal that spans global tastes and lights fires in the hearts of millions, irrespective of nation or creed, while being true, authentic, and highly respectful to his Indian roots.

With the score of People Like Us, Rahman enters into a world of mid western American rusticism and folk tilt with a healthy philharmonic platform. The music as a whole is ambient, soothing, acoustic, and spiritually uplifting, while being restraintful, spacious, and respectful to the culture within which this film is based. While avoiding the epic sounds of 127, the pop Bollywoodish character of Slumdog and the colorful global palette of Couple's Retreat, Rahman creates a soundtrack that is thematically coherent and subtly intricate, more stylistically conventional by Hollywood score standards, yet unique in its sound and execution. This is also the first time that Rahman has scored for a film demanding a Mid Western folk emphasis, but again, never sounding obviously derivative.

4.0 out of 5 stars 'There is sweet music.......' May 21, 2013
Format:Audio CD
PEOPLE LIKE US is a film that allows us to examine a grossly dysfunctional family under a microscope and in the process learn quite a bit about why family is important despite the traumas and tragedies and underlying festering of personality quirks that affect the unit. The dialogue is smart (written by director Alex Kurtzman with Roberto Orci and Jody Lambert), the pacing is fast and furious at first but as the film lingers it slows to a slow dance that makes the whole plot come together, and the cast is uniformly excellent. One of the main contributors to the success of this film is the soundtrack which happens to be n of the better movie soundtracks for a little film in quite awhile. But first the story.

Sam (Chris Pine, who continues to grow as an actor) is a fast talking salesman whose antics have resulted in some financial disasters that have placed his life in the panic mode. He lives with a bright woman Hannah (Olivia Wilde) who is on the brink of leaving him because of the mess he is creating for himself and for their relationship. Then of course comes the phone call: Sam's father, from whom Sam has been estranged for years, has died and Hannah insists they go to the funeral - much against Sam's inclination. But return to home in Los Angeles they do and there his mother Lillian (Michelle Pfeiffer) awaits her runaway son. Things are strained to say the least. Sam's father's lawyer (Philip Baker Hall) informs Sam that instead of Sam's expected massive inheritance from his show biz father's death he instead is awarded all of this fathers massive record collection and accoutrements: the lawyer hands Sam a shaving kit inside which is $150,000 and a note asking Sam to deliver it to `Josh Davis'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Rahman.... August 19, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
One of the stunning quality of Rahman is the way he modulates his soundtracks to the spirit of the movie. It seems like a challenge to his inspiration. The soundtrack becomes the movie and viceversa.
This new CD is somehow more symphonic , more intimate at the same time. I haven't seen the movie, but I guess the music reflects the mood of it. Variations on a subtle musical theme. And not a hint of Indian musical solutions. Quite interesting , if , somehow , a little too bland, a little too sentimental. But , once more , it may reflect the intimate mood of the movie. Maybe not one of my favorite five stars Rahman, but impeccable nevertheless.

Loved the movie and this soundtrack compliments it well. When I can't watch the movie I can at least listen to this track and picture the movie in my head. Works well for me.
