Unlike all the other commentators I am very much in love with this soundtrack (and yeah I like the movie too so sue me). The complexity and use of various instruments is a joy to behold and the little sprinkles of classical music in between is witty and fits to Terry Gilliams approach on movies. Never has Brahms Lullaby sounded so dark and sinister. My favourite tracks are actually Red Riding Hood, The French arrive and The Eclipse Begins.
The Eclipse Begins is so massive in the middle that Don Davis would be very impressed. There is some musical candy and twist in every single track. It is so refreshing to hear something that doesn't sound like Media Venture or James Horner.
I have a feeling that all the previous listeners who complained about the review also would hate ArsÚne Lupin (another jewel).
Well I couldn't agree more. I would actually give the score even five stars
