I love and greatly admire Alexandre Desplat. I own almost all of his CDs. "The Special Relationship," however, turned out to be a disappointment. True, all the usual Desplat melodies and harmonies are there, but that's about it. There are no breathtaking dramatic sweeps, and there are very few quieter, hauntingly beautiful contemplative melodies for which Desplat is known. Perhaps the music passes muster as a soundtrack to the movie (which I didn't see), but as a stand alone oeuvre it falls far short of what I came to expect of Desplat. Somehow it all sounds so tepid, insipid and uninspiring. Sorry to say, I will not be reaching for the CD when I need an emotional uplift or when I look for something to help me relax and unwind.
