By Kaya Savas VINE VOICE on September 19, 2011
Format: Audio CD
Thomas Newman hasn't really had a great benchmark score in quite some time. For The Help I wasn't expecting him to pull out all the stops and give us another score to sit with The Road To Perdition and The Shawshank Redemption. While it won't be remembered for being an iconic Thomas Newman score, it will strike a resonating chord with the listener. Newman's trademark strings open the first track and I immediately got a chill. The score is peppered with his piano accents that truly make it a Thomas Newman score. As a story the music is extremely well structured with some nice motifs.

Newman eases us into the serious subject matter of the story by starting things off light. In some cases you may think he's getting a little too saccharine, but then again the film is sugarcoated for mass appeal. The second half of the score is where it truly shines. The music has a deep resonating presence that gently carries you to a compassionate state. The true emotion of the film finally finds room to poke out and then this music truly becomes something spectacular. Newman hits all the right beats with the score's ups and downs. There is such a strong sense of human spirit in the score that you can't help but be moved by it. To add a little atmosphere and setting Newman incorporates a little guitar now and then to echo the southern setting of the film. In the end the score brings everything to a gentle and subtle conclusion.

The Help reminded me a lot of The Shawshank Redemption because of how Newman made audiences sympathize with the characters. His music is a pure echo of human emotion and that is true for his score for The Help. It's a beautiful score. It may go unnoticed and while Newman isn't doing anything bold here, but it doesn't mean it isn't special.

This soundtrack is worth buying and the music is lovely! however, it does not include any of the songs that were used in the movie, so if you were hoping to purchase the songs, this isn't the CD.

I have to agree with the one review about this not being in the same tier as Shawshank and Road to Perdition, but that's a pretty tall order. I think The Help is certainly some of his best work in the last few years. If you like Thomas Newman, I would also suggest some of these composers:

Angelo Milli (7 Pounds)

Alexandre Desplat (Harry Potter, Girl with the Pearl Earring)

Josh Kramer (Beginnings and Only Memories)
