Perhaps it's not among his very strongest, but I'm very fond of this score and album. It was the one Goldenthal score that really, finally "clicked". Suddenly, I just seemed to "understand"! I'd previously thought of his scores as being somewhat aimless collections of noise, but for whatever reason, In Dreams opened my eyes to the fact that far from being aimless, in fact there are very few composers with such a keen sense of structure and discipline as Goldenthal.
I can't think of a more exciting composer working in films at the moment. He's written so many scores that are infinitely better than the films for which they were written, he's always growing as a composer, always challenging himself to come up with something greater.
And long may it continue! In Dreams is but one of a very large collection of great works by the composer.
