A timeless masterpiece   Thursday, December 20, 2007 (7:55 p.m.) 
• Now Playing: Alison Krauss  

I can't listen to this score enough. 'Accidental Tourist' remains one of my favorite scores by Williams. Some reviews note it as repetitive, and sure, themes are repeated, but its the repeating theme that guides the narrative of the music. I love the melody that is heard through this score, often layers with deep, rich strings. The score is so evocative of rainfall.
To me, it's one of those scores that others just dont see the appeal of, but I do. I guess I'll just remain alone in that regard.

I totally agree with you. With this score I find myself in a ultra-rare state of disagreeing with every word Christian penned about the score's qualities.

Accidental Tourist is, in my opinion, superior to his better-known successors, such as Sabrina, Presumed Innocent, Stepmom or Terminal.

The funny thing about the score is that it must have been listened to by David Newman who composed for The War of the Roses, since there are strong similarities between one cue in the Accidental Tourist and the War of the Roses score, my another strong favorite.

My rating: ( **** )
