5.0 out of 5 stars Emotionally Empowering, December 13, 2011
By 
This review is from: We Bought A Zoo (Motion Picture Soundtrack) (Audio CD)
I just returned from a screening of "We Bought a Zoo" and immediately was lifted to a higher place through the emotionally empowering score of this brilliantly beautiful film. As tears rolled down my face repeatedly throughout the film I listened to the music and thought--please let this be a soundtrack! Every scene fluidly scored lifted my heart higher and higher and truly touched my soul. I've never felt like this from a movie soundtrack or movie. Reading the notes on the score here on Amazon: "achingly beautiful themes...a series of themes that would reflect everything we'd hoped for." The now discovered fact that Cameron encouraged the actors to listen to the music before a scene explains why their emotions are so beautifully expressed on screen. This music is a part of the films DNA ingrained in my memory, my heart and spirit. The music captures the light and the film shines like a joyous bright star discovered for the very first time. I not only downloaded this soundtrack immediately after seeing the film (I've only done this one other time) but I also ordered the c.d. as a reminder of the day I discovered Jonsi. And thank you Cameron Crowe for your vision in requesting the musical paint that covers the heartfelt canvas of "We Bought a Zoo." Tom Sullivan

Tom, not sure if you've checked out Sigur Ros yet but Jonsi is one part of a brilliant band from Iceland called Sigur Ros. Check out the album "Takk..." and really listen to it, with headphones on. Probably one of the most beautiful albums ever. Then go buy the rest of their albums and explore them. Seriously this band is a hidden gem. If you like Jonsi, then this up your alley and more so. Cheers!
