5.0 out of 5 stars To the Wonder by Hanan Townshend April 14, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
I've listened to this score twice all the way through and watched the film already. This is nothing less than a fantastic score for a fantastic film. I think Malick has finally found a musical collaborator that will work with him on more than one project and I am highly anticipating their next collaboration. If you like Terrence Malick scores, or just good scores in general, you'll like this score.

I recently saw the movie, and now looking at the CD's track list (actually sampling the songs is not possible) I notice that "Pertti Pekkanen's Cantus Arcticus, concerto for birds and orchestra, Op. 61 - Swans Migrating" is not listed. This song played in the scene with the bison herd. I'm guessing it must be the song on the CD called "Bison Herd", but shouldn't the actual composer be credited?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Quiet Score That Echoes Love & All That It Entails October 18, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Terrence Malick is an extremely profound filmmaker. His works are stunning canvasses where the whole depth of human existence is examined. His work is polarizing as well. You either love his films or despise them. Whatever your views on his films may be one cannot deny that the use of music in his films is breathtaking. He has worked with some of the most notable composers in the industry to craft some of film's most memorable moments. He is also known for using lots of source music from his favorite classical composers like Wagner and Brahms. This favoritism of the non-original music has caused rumored rifts between him and his composers, and since he has never worked with the same composer more than once the rumors could very much be true. Newcomer Hanan Townshend broke everyones expectations when he was announced as the name composer for To The Wonder. He had worked briefly in the music department on Tree Of Life, and that lead to Malick choosing him to tackle this film. The result is an absolutely beautiful musical poem that stands as an audial interpretation of the film's ideas rather than scoring the picture as a traditional score. It is filled with sparkling life, flowing beauty, darkness through isolation and a fluttering spiritual awareness.

This is not a traditional score. In fact, Townshend did not score to picture. Malick believes the movie comes together in the editing room. He shoots what he feels during production and then assembles it in editing to craft a film. Townshend wanted to mirror this way of filmmaking and give Malick all the pieces beforehand so that he could assemble the score in the editing room. One would think that this approach would give the score a disjointed feel, but it does not. The album presentation is a beautiful and emotionally complex journey.

Really very good easy listening. Terrific sound. I love it. I am very happy to have gotten this CD album before this film movie is shown in Japan.

2.0 out of 5 stars To the Wonder: About the music April 13, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
To start this review, I am a fan of Terrance Malick movies. I waited with eagerness for To The Wonder to hit theaters. But before it did, Hanan Townshend's score was released three days in advanced. To put it frankly, this score disappoints me. Sure, there are some aspects one would expect in a score to a Terrance Malik film. Adjectives that come to mind are colorful, pastoral, lyrical, and even idyllic. Most of the score, however, is dirge of droning sounds and shrill notes. Very little of it is pleasing to the ear. I own over 100 movie scores and frustration always sets in with a score like this. The music doesn't take you on journey. The listener seemingly must sit through an amalgamation of random sounds with no musical reward. The two tracks which are good are Bach's BWV No. 142 and Sweet Prospect, a song based on a William Walker hymn. These two, along with a few other random snippets, are what you would expect with a Terrance Malik score. This is no Thin Red Line or Tree of Life, though. In my opinion, purchase something else.
