4.0 out of 5 stars Thunder Buddies for life July 11, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Picture the scene: it's the mid 1980s in suburban America. You're a ten year old boy, and not very popular, but on Christmas morning your parents give you the most adorable, cuddly teddy bear imaginable. You suddenly have a new best friend - and, that night, you make a wish on a shooting star that your bear would come to life. Amazingly, through the magical power of a young boy's dreams, the bear does come to life, and everyone lived happily ever after... except that, 25 years later, the bear is still with you, smokes pot out of a bong in your living room, brings hookers home to party, and is a constant irritation to your friends and family. This is the premise of Ted, the live-action cinematic debut of the television-animation icon Seth MacFarlane, whose comic creations on the small screen include Family Guy, American Dad and The Cleveland Show. Mark Wahlberg stars as John Bennett, the poor schmuck whose life is constantly being ruined by his furry friend, Mila Kunis supports as his beautiful long-suffering girlfriend Lori, and MacFarlane himself voices the eponymous bear. It sounds ridiculous but, truthfully, Ted is one of the funniest films I have seen in a LONG time, filled with a wonderful combination of gross-out humor, verbal sparring and absurd physical violence, but counterbalanced with a genuinely heartwarming story of love, friendship and forgiveness.

Seth MacFarlane has always been a very musically literate man, and has gone on record to say that, had he not become a writer and animator, he would have loved to be a film composer.

Walter Murphy is not a household name, but if you're a fan of Seth MacFarlane's shows then you've heard his music. He is the staple of Family Guy along with Ron Jones, and together they provide the show with its amazing music rooted in the styles of great crooners like Sinatra. Walter Murphy has had a long and celebrated career and finally we get to hear him shining outside of the 30-minute animated sitcom. His work on Family Guy is nothing short of breathtaking. They record with a full orchestra every week and the number of scores he has homaged on that show over the year are always stylistically impressive. The song numbers they put on are also a testament to Murphy's skills. For Ted he implements all of that in a jazzy band style that wins you over emotionally as well.

The score opens with a song written by Murphy and sung by Norah Jones (who also makes a cameo in the film). This melody serves as the building block for the rest of the score. It is the emotional anchor that ties the main relationship of Ted and John together. The score is able to work emotionally even if this comes across as a vulgar comedy film. If you know Seth MacFarlane's style then you know he is able to interject a considerable amount of emotion between the laughs. Murphy's music does an impeccable job at this. The movie's sweetness would be completely gone without the score here, and without the music the ending would have zero weight. Moments feel reminiscent of Alan Silvestri's score to Who Framed Roger Rabbit, but it only adds to the amazing atmosphere of it all. The rest plays out very well with a few homages here and there, but in the end we get everything tied nicely together with a happy ending.

Listening to this score is an absolutely heartwarming experience.

The instrumentel music I knew would be great as that was what attracted me to it to begin with. The vocal selections are an added bonus as they balance out the entire cd.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Fact for your average orchestra buff! March 18, 2013
By C. Wu
Format:Audio CD
Good ol' Walter Murphy does a lot of great (or at least, mediocrely great) things in this movie, including a highly underrated soundtrack. But, if you've ever expressed an interest in classical music, you know that ol' Murph uses the "Bydlo" theme from Pictures at an Exhibition, by Modest Mussorgsky, for the theme of the second half (and maybe the first half) of the soundtrack ( [...] ) Guy's a genius! First he outright states it, then he mutates it into something even more sinister and finishes off by modulating it into a major key and ending the soundtrack with it! Not half bad for a soundtrack no one's probably ever gonna listen to.

Good s***.
