I highly recommend this album - its high quality music in a nice 4-CD set.

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.

Let's face it, very few people have the money to buy every single movie score that they'd like to. Collectors of film scores typically have hundreds of scores but there are always good scores that they don't acquire simply due to the number of scores out there. This Varese Sarabande 35th Anniversary Celebration allows film score buffs like me to sample many, many scores for a very low price. $15 dollars for hours and hours of music. There are 4 discs in this collection and the movies represented here range from popular blockbusters to lesser-known films, and thus, lesser-known composers. Sometimes these more obscure snippets from smaller films are the real gems. I can't help but recommend with enthusiasm this collection and I regret not picking up the previous releases.

Every 5 years this deal on film music has been a mainstay of my collection of soundtracks. I always find new artists and soundtracks among the sample music to further investigate. If you at all appreciate movie music scores you should buy this "Celebration" collection.

I have been collecting film music for nearly half a century (!) and I still look forward to these marvelous Varese Sarabande anniversary celebrations. Always attractively packaged and very well priced these collections are essential for any film music lover's library. This four-disc set features a wonderful body of work by some of our more contemporary composers and contains an outstanding sampling of films and television from this century. Obviously some of these films didn't get soundtrack releases so this is a great way of appreciating all this fine music and in some cases, a great primer to go look for the complete soundtrack release. Producer Robert Townson has also included a nice little booklet with lots of photos of the composers, so now we know what they look like as we enjoy their music. Admittedly I am no music expert but I do love film music and I certainly love this superb compilation. This set is not only a fantastic listening experience but a great bargain for the price.

Packed with Varese Sarabande film score samples of films released on their prolific label between 2008-2013. Someone did take the time to select the best tracks to represent each score and it's an inexpensive way to sample recent film music. The price is very reasonable and as they've done every 5 yrs since their 25th we get to sample highlights at an affordable price. Varese is one of the strongest soundtrack labels to support not only current scores but has issued majestic, beautifully recorded new recordings of older scores and scores that were formerly unavailable.

This is the 4th compilation of movie music on the Varese Sarabande label. It is a tribute to the talent of various composers with different styles, and moods. If one listens to the music a few times,we have a deeper appreciation of the talent and skill these composers possess. I thank Varese Sarabande, as well as Robert Townson (producer) for putting together this series. The music often expresses the sign of the times, stimulates our memories of movies seen, or movies just imagined.
