5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely the BEST, June 23, 2003
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Varèse Sarabande - A 25th Anniversary Celebration (Audio CD)
I'll just repeat what others have said before -- this is absolutely fantastic. I am awed and impressed with the artistry and great care that Varèse Sarabande took in collecting and placing all the tracks on this 4 CD set. One track naturally blends into the next; nothing jarring, nothing out of place, and yet the collection is eclectic enough! "Old Timer" composers (long dead Bernard Herrmann, Franz Waxman, Erich Korngold) are allowed to shine alongside contemporary composers like Jerry Goldsmith, Danny Elfman, John Debney, Thomas Newman and many more. All tracks are excellent. All tracks are a delight.
I even felt compelled to order several Georges Delerue CDs after hearing such stirring and achingly gorgeous examples of his work on these CDs. I also felt the urge (it was beyond my control, I'm telling you) to order John Debney's score for "The Replacements". And I have many more film scores on my shopping list, all thanks to this collection.
I am a big film music fan (Goldsmith, Williams, Jarre, Bernstein and several other compsers being favorites -- especially Goldsmith). And this collection of film music shows off their work. But more importantly, it shows off the work of many other composers that I'm aware of and suspected were good, but just hadn't heard enough of...until now. I've been given the opportunity to sample so many wonderful composers' works, thanks to this collection of CDs.
What a rare treasure it is. And the price is beyond comprehension! What a deal for FOUR CDs!?! Snatch it up now!
