Editorial Reviews

The score to Titus, Julie Taymor's film version of Shakespeare's bloody play, starts exactly the way one assumes it will: a generous chorus pumps out a foreboding (and relatively unintelligible) chant, supported by tumultuous orchestration. The orchestra will appear again, on occasion, but trust that this is the last moment your ears will experience anything that they are even remotely expecting. Perfectly suited to Taymor's flamboyant, genre-mad interpretation of Shakespeare's script, composer Elliot Goldenthal (Alien 3, Interview with the Vampire, Heat) has fashioned a tapestry that also includes hot-tempered big-band jazz, industrial rock, circus themes, and exotic tone poems. Furthermore, these elements overlap in ways that are more detailed and inventive than the motion picture industry generally allows. Midway through "Tribute & Suffrage," at the height of a hopped-up swing session, the set metamorphoses into kettledrums that usher in a majestic, symphonic sequence. The next time jazz is heard ("Swing Rave"), the band is backed by fuzz-toned guitarists (among them Page Hamilton, of the metal band Helmet) who could frizz Brian Setzer's retro perm. Clearly it is Goldenthal, and not Hollywood mercenary Michael Kamen, who should have conducted Metallica's orchestral S&M project. --Marc Weidenbaum

It is truly Mr. Goldenthal's finest score to date!
Josh
The cd switches style between Mahlerian/Wagnerian operas to swing and jazz with such ease demonstrating the versatility of the composer.

If you've seen the movie and liked it, then this is a no-brainer.

In a time when so many motion picture soundtrack recordings are nothing more than compilations of rock n' roll songs featured, albeit briefly, in their respective films, it's wonderful to find a completely original score. The film has not yet arrived in Denver but on the strength of Goldenthal's past work, I immediately picked up the CD. It is an amazing mix of musical styles and sounds blended together to create one of the most interesting and enjoyable film scores I've heard in some time. Mr. Goldenthal ranks among the best of today's film composers: John Williams, John Barry, Gabriel Yared, Jerry Goldsmith, and others. His musical instincts and talents help enhance our motion picture experiences.

There aren't enough words to describe how brilliant and exciting this score is! This is, without a doubt, Mr. Goldenthal's most bombastic, most creative, and most monumental piece of film score work to date. The film may not have been well noticed or recieved, but they did good by releasing an hour long score from the movie. Jam-packed with powerful themes, brilliant jazz ensemble pieces, and chilling melodies, Titus is a score that any film score fan shouldn't hesitate to pick up! It is truly Mr. Goldenthal's finest score to date!

The soundtrack to Titus, like the film, combines many eras into one. There are are great choral works with lots of percussion melding with Jazz and some pop sounding tracks all put together with seamless transitions. This work by Mr. Goldenthal shows how much more experienced with writing music over 90% of todays film composers. He among, John Williams know how to write music that isn't mind bogglingly boring....cough...James Horner..

Goldenthal found the perfect tone to complement this over-the-top, gaudy, gory film. The music plays extremely well by itself, however. Like the film, it combines many eras and genres of music, from heavy orchestral works to modern swing jazz to industrial rock to atmospheric dissonance. Goldenthal feels at home with all. The music, is, by and large, all way over-the-top, but it's very fun to listen to.

Elliot Goldenthal's score to "Titus" is very unique and interesting. I was doubtful when I first got it if I would really like it, but I did. You got blasting choral and orchestra sometimes combined with heavy-metal like guitar riffs and even swing music styles, sometimes all put together. "Pickled Heads" is a good track indeed and "Vivace" the ending song is rather cool in an eclectic sort of way. If you've seen the movie and liked it, then this is a no-brainer. Even not, if you'd like to experiment a little in your soundtrack music in branching into new areas of experiment, "Titus" is an interesting addition to any library. It may not get the most play time in my stereo, but I in no way regret buying it.

I must admit, I'm not too familiar with Goldenthal's work. I've seen many movies that he's scored, but TITUS is the first soundtrack CD of his that I've bought. It's a marvelous piece of work, ranging from moody orchestral tomes to heavy metal to jazzy swing numbers. And it all blends together perfectly! Needless to say, I'm duly impressed.

Goldenthals range and creativity is perfectly demonstrated on this outstanding CD. The recording quality is demonstration class and the music is thrilling, intense, operatic, original, and moving. The cd switches style between Mahlerian/Wagnerian operas to swing and jazz with such ease demonstrating the versatility of the composer. A warning though, the music is modern, and vulgar (appropriate for the storyline) and Goldenthal employs very modern orchestration techniques.

Like the film, the score is a modern work of art. Never before has Goldenthal been so involved. The score goes from frightening, to jazzy, to sullen, to cathartic in a way that few film scores ever have. It is a must for anyone who wants to hear music worthy of Shakespeare's poetry!
