the book is finished is very pretty and reminds me a bit of alan silvestri' contact score where jodi foster meets her father on the strange planet and then sees everything thru his eyes for the first time and believes it is real.
refugee reminds me of finding neverland during the dancing bear scene and also of a romantic picnic in the park for two.
samuels first letter made me feel like i was really reading a letter with the emotion and possible anger at the end of the track.
tickle fight sounded like a game of hide and seek between two young children in an old country house on a summers morning. it has a tad of mystery among it. like the type of mystery when lucy discovered the wardrobe in the chronicles of narnia.
overdose reminds me of a scene from a film some years ago where a family was being held captive in a foreign land by a terrorist and the father was rushing home to save them. then when the father arrived they had been slain already.
storm warnings sounds like a dance routine between two lovers and the other character whose jealous of them. the character plots to split the two lovers up and take her for himself. yet it has a bit of play to it towards the end where it sounds like the hero has arisen to take back his beloved.
end credit is very fun. very ending of a movie-like where all the characters reunite and are singing in joy and they know that everything will be fine and that nothing can come between them ever again. perhaps they are at a picnic again with neighbors too.
overall the score is very beautiful and has some very romantic and emotional moments to it. i would buy the cd if you enjoy emotional scores. i myself will most likely buy this cd in the near future to listen to on rainy days or when days get lonely or down.
i have never seen the film and i don't own the cd currently but now i want to see the film to understand them suic better and to have the music for future lsitening enjoyment as well~
