Great movie. Great soundtrack. Just too expensive on Amazon. You can get it for $13-20 on eBay.
Enjoy the amazing music :)

I love all the music for Hayao Miyazaki's movies, but this is my new favorite. The orchestration is unique and beautiful, using among other instruments a balalaika and an accordion. The melodies range from sweet and quiet to triumphant marches. All in all, a great buy. I am very glad I purchases this cd!

If your friends are raving about this and you are uninitiated, you stand a chance of not liking this score. Joe is primarily famed for his craft in melody and catchiness, bringing all the good parts of popular music to the symphony for refinement. "The Wind Rises" is a subtle film as Ghibli films go, and as scores go this set is fairly unobtrusive. I'm sure a lot of people would find it forgettable, but I personally check that off as a "pro." Whereas I have slowly grown out of John Williams on Star Wars (brass, brass, screechy strings, brass, ascending sixths to craft pretty themes...not to belittle Williams, great work there, but when it gets old, it has to work hard to regain favor), Joe Hisaishi's more subtle work - like the presently reviewed music - tends to grow and grow and grow on you.

Remember that the art of film score leans upon the story told on the big screen. As such, the music must fit the film. In this regard I don't think anyone can fault Joe; this is a fairly relaxed score with much more creative instrumentation (accordion and balalaika, GO) than usual and almost deliberately non-catchy leitmotifs. But the requisite emotional delivery is all there, embedded in the introspect. The score manages to be mostly tonal, but a few cues here and there smilingly recall Hisaishi's past with minimalism. The elements of pulse, of almost canon-like writing, of unconventional harmony (track 22, "Paper Airplane," for example, plays the harmony game to build anticipation before resolving with sforzando dissonances to delimit phrases). The bubbly celestia writing in track 23 ("Nahoko [Proposal]") seems to draw on similar ideas. It WORKS, though, when suitably mixed with the other conventional writing that Joe does.
