Eragon: Music From The Motion Picture by Various

The title theme to this soundtrack has to be one of the most bombastic--and, let's admit it, one of the catchiest--in recent memory. The CD doesn't even build up to it: "Eragon" is placed right at the beginning. At least we know what we're in for right away, as the music instantly sets up a mood of immediately accessible, old-fashioned high adventure. The targeted crowd--young, more female perhaps than the usual action fare--is confirmed by the two songs tagged at the end: Avril Lavigne's "Keep Holding On," a catchy power ballad she co-wrote with hitmaker Lukasz "Dr. Luke" Gottwald (coauthor of "Since U Been Gone"), and Jem's slightly less successful "Once in Every Lifetime," which sounds like too many end-credit thoughtful wrap-up tracks. But back to Patrick Doyle's score. It sets itself apart from a lot of the competition by the presence of actual melodies. Sure, Doyle fares better on the up-tempo numbers (like the pulse-quickening "Battle of Varden") than on the slower, moodier ones (the subdued treatment of the theme on "Roran Leaves" isn't as good as the brawling version), but overall this is a nice entry in a crowded field. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

The actually music itself is not extraordinary but again, it works very well for the movie and I enjoy listening to it.
