Music as Written for Film: ***
Music as Heard on Album: ****
the movie is hopefully(!!) expected to release on 19 May, but reviewer here has already rated on trhe functionality of the score in the movie
just wondering if he was actually invited for one of those sneak preview ahead of opening or is it a comment on what he feels would be the best suited music for the movie
As for the album, discovery and wonderment seem to be the key issues in the score and thats surely worth the price. but it does sound like an extension of Batman Begins mixed with kingdom of heaven and the following info doesnt come as a surprise
As usual, one has to wonder how much of The Da Vinci Code was written by Zimmer and how much was a “team effort” from his usual collaborators and conspirators: Jim Dooley, Blake Neely, Bruce Fowler, Justin Caine Burnett, Harry Gregson-Williams, Rupert Gregson-Williams, Steve Jablonsky, James Levine, Henning Lohner, Suzette Moriarty, Heitor Pereira, Geoff Zanelli, Lorne Balfe, Henry Jackman, Mel Wesson, and even James Newton Howard are all thanked in the CD’s copious credits, drawing one to the conclusion that some or all of them probably had a hand in writing or orchestrating parts of the score.
