4.0 out of 5 stars This is the movie SCORE not SOUNDTRACK. December 3, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Sorry for the emphasis, but as with everything in this world, people tend not to bother reading the information provided to them, as a former bad review showed. This is the musical score for the movie, not the soundtrack. You can also purchase the soundtrack. They will both be wonderful additions to your musical library. This was a wonderful, sweet movie. I can't think of a better child actor than Dakota Fanning.

Let me start this review by stating ~ director Jessie Nelson chose a great cast for this challenging screenplay. The cast of Sean Penn (Sam Dawson), Michelle Pfeiffer (Rita Harrison), Dakota Fanning (Lucy-is outstanding wide eye little girl who steals your heart), Dianne Wiest (Annie), Richard Schiff (Turner-who will all know and love from "West Wing"), Laura Dern (Randy Carpenter) and Loretta Devine (Margaret Calgrove). Nelson who not only directed, but was screenwriter and producer takes this story to a realistic plato, sending the audience into a tearful realm of uncertainty.
The score by John Powell is heartwarming within a contemporary shell of guitar and cello works by such artists ~ George Doering and Heitor Pereira (ukes/guitars), Steve Erdody (cello), Michael Fisher (percussion), Dave Carpenter (bass) and strings by The Hollywood Studio Symphony serve up an entertaining cup of coffee while creating a musically loving environment for one and all, gotta love it!
And now folks for the stand outs ~ "STARBUCKS & HOSPITAL"..."SAM'S FRIENDS"(hints of flamengo)..."READING TOGETHER"(beautiful serene flowing lilting)..."RITA"(reggae flows readily)..."MAKING COFFEE"(fun filled percussion exceeds)..."NIGHTTIME VISITS"(fabulous arrangement and outstanding performance by all) ~ each cue is entirely poignant with compassion and sentimentally thrown in, great listen
for "film-score-buffs" who fancy the genres of new age, classical and jazz intermingled, with a touch of celtic here and there.
Total Time: 40:58 on 19 Tracks ~ Varese Sarabande 302-066-317-2 ~ (2001)

4.0 out of 5 stars sweet May 4, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a touching score by John Powell for a sweet movie. Powell has done other films that are light and touching, chicken run, antz, shrek, in collaboration with gregson-williams. Powell has also done action movies like face/off. This is quiet and something to relax to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD September 24, 2005
Format:Audio CD
If you love a new spin on the classics of rock n roll or just a huge beatles fan this is the cd for you! I have to say my favorite songs of the cd include The Black Crow's rendition of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, Ben Harper's cover of Strawberry Fields Forever and Eddie Vedder's cover of Youve Got To Hide Your Love Away. But to be honest every song is a jewel even more so when you have seen the movie. My advice see the movie first and then get the cd so that you can remember the touching moments that happened while your favorite song is playing.

5.0 out of 5 stars piano song? January 30, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This movie, soundtrack, and score are amazing, but does ANYONE know what song Annie is playing on the piano when Sam goes to visit her and ask her if she will appear in court?? This is very important so if you know, PLEASE get back to me. Thanks.

5.0 out of 5 stars John Powell August 15, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Another great & moving score from Powell. This is not large and bombastic score as Shrek or Evolution, but still so fresh an beatufull. Especially cello parts. This album is a proof, that John Powell is a fantastic composer.
He can do action score as well as comedy or drama.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow. January 19, 2006
Format:Audio CD
John Powell proves that he is not just a master of the traditional orchestra. However, he also shows that he is well capable of writing electro-acoustic music too. Did anyone besides me notice the phone-rings and computer key-taps in several tracks?
