Top Customer Reviews
This album includes the best movie music released by Varese Sarabande in recent years. This is a follow up to a previous soundtrack release: Varèse Sarabande - A 30th Anniversary Celebration. This 35th Anniversary set picks up where that previous album left off and features music from the last 5 years (2008-2012) since its release.
There are 84 tracks included on the album - mostly music from films, but a few TV series like Mildred Pierce & True Blood are also here - represented over 4 Discs, totaling nearly 5 hours of music. It's important to note that you are not getting the entire albums, but rather one track/selection from each film.
Some of the great films of the last few years are represented here. My favorites scores included on the album are "Speed Racer", "Real Steel", "Star Trek", "Game of Thrones", "Super 8", "The Ides of March", and "The Ghost Writer".
The list of composers whose work is featured on the album is quite impressive: Alexandre Desplat, Danny Elfman, Michael Giacchino, Hans Zimmer, Ramin Djawadi, Patrick Doyle, Thomas Newman, and many others.
Overall, the album has a large variety of musical styles and tones. Being a fan of film music, I was familiar many of these tracks previously - but as expected I was also introduced to a lot of great new music that I had never heard before. I recommend this album because it provides the single best/most memorable pieces of score from many good films.
