After reading this and Broxton's review, I took a leap of faith and bought this score from amazon. I was not disappointed.
It acts much in a similar vain to Thomas Newman's 'The Good German' in that it allows tribute to be payed to the masters of the Golden era while allowing a unique freshness to emerge.
I urge anyone who still believes in melody and thematic quality to pick up this score, sublime in every way.
