Format: Audio CD
Composer Jeff Beal sure has one heck of an eclectic resume. The three-time Emmy winner (and eight-time nominee overall) has scored a huge host of film and television creations, including the critically-acclaimed Pollock and Appaloosa of the former and numerous works in the latter, most notably the USA network's Monk but also recent others such as Ugly Betty, the HBO series Carnivale and Rome, and the theme music to another USA hit, In Plain Sight. In listening to Beal's score for the documentary The Queen of Versailles, his compositional experience is easily evident, but unfortunately, fails to succinctly wrap the listener's attention beyond a select few salient points.

Magnolia Pictures' The Queen of Versailles follows a billionaire family along a journey beginning with the construction of America's largest home, at a paltry (!) 90,000 square feet. Due to economic downturns and the rapidly declining value of the dollar, however, the family's home morphs from a triumphant dream to a tumultuous and divisive reminder of the haphazard lifestyle of the United States' richest citizens. For a score accompanying what seems to be such a Kardashian motif based on synopsis alone, Jeff Beal has constructed a surprisingly robust collection of tunes here. The album begins with a very classical and baroque-sounding mixture of instrumentation, involved and roiling, but it's readily apparent that one of the score's problems is the extremely short length of the tracks. On the seventh track, "Time Share King," Beal begins to really show his talent for turning narrow corners inside a tightly-confined score, as a gentle piano grabs the listener's attention, just for a moment, before the next cues introduce a flitting harpsichord melody.
