Editorial Reviews

The Crimson Wing: Mystery of the Flamingos is a new French documentary film that was created by Disney (Disneynature). The film documents the life cycle of flamingos and was filmed in Northern Tanzania.... The nice thing about this film is the original score brought to you by The Cinematic Orchestra with help from The London Metropolitan Orchestra.

The Cinematic Orchestra is a U.K.-based jazz and electronic outfit, created in the late 1990s by Jason Swinscoe, which records on the Ninja Tune independent record label.

This soundtrack is beautiful. Just beautiful. I am an avid movie orchestral soundtrack guy, and this is one of the best I have ever heard. Like mostly everyone else, I discovered it from the Armani commercial. Any time the commercial would come on TV, I was captivated. I was hoping the rest of the soundtrack would be just as amazing, and I was not let down by any means. Every single track tells a story and is just amazing. I highly, highly, recommend this to everyone.

A few weeks back there was a Russian video posted on the net; it depicted various scenes of friendship, courtesy, or whatever that were all positive; it was taken from a car video camera (in Russia most vehicles have them because of insurance fraud); anyway, the guy who posted the videos played this music in the background. This is a full orchestra type sound, rich, deep, and very full. If you like elevator music, you probably will like this. I wouldn't compare it to Enya as she sings in her pieces in places, and this is totally instrumental, but somehow I sense a distant connection (all in my mind?). Anyway I really enjoy this music. (and yes, this is really music, unlike some of the noise that passes for music today, my opinion)

Sometimes it takes an expensive commercial to help us find music that we wish we had found before. One of the most moving and expressive pieces of music on the market today. The opening title grabs you in, the second piece (Arrival of the Birds) brings you to your knees clutching the kleenex box to your chest and the music doesn't let you go for the rest of the score. I haven't been able to see the movie this soundtrack accompanied but I can only imagine the music along with the movie theme would reduce me to a puddle of tears and snot.

I received my CD today. I had to get it from the UK as you cannot get it on iTunes.
Was that worth it? YES. As soon as it started to play I felt overwhelmed by an intrepid beauty that somehow leads me to knowing more about myself, my own worth and the honor that must be felt for everything around me. As I look outside my window, sparrows have become whispers from God, as their antics are recognized to be that of all creatures that fly. Who knew that flamingos would become so important to me? In the past I only thought of them as pink decorations on lawns in Florida or zoo creatures. I see them differently now after buying the DVD of the documentary, which in turn caused me to buy the CD. I understand the gift of sadness, the pleasure of the simple and the fight to survive much more clearly now. The Cinematic Orchestra has brought me to this meditative place and yet the picture is so much fuller than that, it is beauty that cannot be dismissed or ever forgotten. Crimson Wings is a vision, a sound of the past and future. I cannot think of a more profound pleasure.

This soundtrack evokes so many emotions. Now, I haven't seen the movie yet but, but thanks to the music I feel like I already have.

Transformation must be my favorite. It is full of beauty and hope. When I listen to it, I believe again and feel like I become stronger.

This is one of my favorite soundtracks. US distribution of this product seems to be quite limited, and so I paid more than I usually would for a soundtrack... but after hearing the music it was worth it. The soundtracks to the Disneynature movies have always been great, and this is one of the best of them. Now let's hope at some point they release an official album for "African Cats"!

Since this album is currently not available to purchase as an MP3, you'll need to purchase the CD. Please note that the CD does come in a digipak-style cardboard case rather than a plastic jewel case. I don't mind this at all, but thought others should be aware.

FAVORITE TRACKS:
[2] Arrival of the Birds
[10] Life of the Bird

I also recommend the film: Disneynature: Crimson Wing - The Mystery of the Flamingo (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo)

Such moving music. I have not yet seen the documentary but I plan to. I happened to hear one of the songs on this cd and it was just so beautiful and emotional. Most of the songs on the cd are just as good. The music tells the story and even though I haven't seen the video, I can "see" the birds flying and I can see the little baby flamingo hatching and growing and having first flight! Wonderful!

I first heard the music of "Arrival of the Birds" as the background music on YouTube about Cameras on the dashboards of cars in Russia and how people stop to help others cross thru heavy traffic or help get them out of snowbanks, etc. I found out who played the hauntingly beautiful music and took a chance on purchasing the CD from Amazon before I had ever heard of this group of musicians. They are wonderful and I highly recommend the CD to others.
