5.0 out of 5 stars Saving Mr. Banks - Original Soundtrack December 10, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"Saving Mr. Banks" is a wonderful soundtrack worthy of a listen and a purchase. The film explores Walt Disney and the making of "Mary Poppins". As such, there are a number of songs performed by the cast - this includes "Let's Go Fly a Kite", a fun song that's my personal favorite on the album. As a bonus, you also get many of the famous tunes as performed by Julie Andrews from "Mary Poppins", such as "A Spoonful of Sugar" and "Chim Chim Cher-ee". Also included are pre-demos of the songs, performed by songwriter Richard M. Sherman.

But the real treat here is Thomas Newman's original score for the film. Mr. Newman is a legend among film fans, having worked on the music for films like "The Shawshank Redemption", "Road to Perdition", "Finding Nemo", "Skyfall", and even the main theme for HBO's "The Newsroom". I wouldn't say "Saving Mr. Banks" is the very best work Newman has ever done, but it's pretty darn close. This score will no doubt earn him his 12th Oscar nomination - I hope he finally wins, he deserves it!

There are some “soundtrack” recordings – the ones that have the “score”, not the ones composed of pop songs “featured” in a film – that work best if you have seen the related film. That’s why I am often hesitant to review STs for films I have not seen, and why my reviews may bee different from those who have seen the film. In the case of “Saving Mr. Banks”, the full enjoyment requires that you, not only see the new (as I write this) Tom Hanks-Emma Thompson film, but that you revisit (or experience for the first time) the original “Mary Poppins” film from 1964 (particularly the brilliant newly restored version – see my five-star review on Amazon). Trust me; it’s worth it to go these extra steps. With those steps behind you, this SMB Cd will make a lot more sense.

Disney has released two version of the SMB soundtrack: A single- disc version and the 2-disc “Deluxe Version” that I’m reviewing here. (Note that Amazon has policy of grouping various configurations of CDs together so, when reading a review here, look to see which product the reviewer is discussing.)

The Deluxe package consists of 2 CD. The first runs 46 minutes and has 31 tracks, including the “score” by composer Thomas Newman, three “excepts” of Mary Poppins songs (by the Sherman Brothers) as sung in the film at key moments (though the “Supercalifragilistic…….” excerpt lasts just five seconds!), and two recordings (Ray Charles’ instrumental “One Mint Julep”; the Dave Brubeck Quartet’s “Heigh Ho”) which are interpolated into the film’s soundtrack. The second CD (23 minutes) includes the original pre-demo recordings of four songs from “Mary Poppins” recorded by the Shermans and their MP soundtrack recordings, plus “A Spoonful of Sugar” (from MP).

4.0 out of 5 stars Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious December 13, 2013
Format:Audio CD
The much-loved Disney feature Mary Poppins celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2014. It’s hard to believe that it’s been that long since the world first learned the word supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, or were first able to hear the worst Cockney accent in cinematic history courtesy of Dick Van Dyke, but it’s true, and the legacy and popularity of the film remains as strong today as it was in 1964. The new film Saving Mr. Banks, directed by John Lee Hancock, tells two parallel stories. Firstly, it charts how the film Mary Poppins was made, with the irascible English spinster P.L. Travers (Emma Thompson) traveling from her home in London to Los Angeles, where she is wooed mercilessly by no lesser figure that Walt Disney himself (Tom Hanks), in an attempt to secure the rights to her book, which she is loathe to give up. Secondly, and possibly most importantly, it explores in flashback Travers’ childhood in rural Australia, and how her relationship with her loving, caring, but hopelessly drunk and irresponsible father (Colin Farrell) help inspired her work, and her famous umbrella-wielding nanny.

The music of Mary Poppins is, of course, as important and well-loved at the film, and so obviously composer Thomas Newman had a very important part to play in the film about its creation. With the legendary songs of Richard M. Sherman and the late Robert B. Sherman looming large in the background, and featuring prominently in several scenes in the film, Newman took an important decision and intentionally avoided quoting any of their melodies in his score itself, instead concentrating on the emotional aspect of Travers’ life story, and leaving the legendary music of the Shermans to speak for itself.

By Katy
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I absolutely fell in love with this movie when it came out and the music is absolutely beautiful in it! I do not dislike anything about this Cd. There is such a variety of music on this CD, it pretty much takes you through the whole movie! It's so much fun to listen to and relax on. I recommended any Saving Mr. Banks movie lovers to get this soundtrack, it will take you through a whole different experience. :)
