(The following donated review by Brett Ulrich was moved by Filmtracks to this comment section in May, 2007)

Little Giants: (John Debney) Attention all Debney fans, the buck stops here. Little Giants represents Debney's best effort behind Cutthroat Island. Debney's talent with an orchestra, ability to write truly memorable themes, and knack for writing absolutely fun music all shine brightly in this score.

The opening track of this CD, as well as much of the music on it, plays just like an exciting American march. Immediately Debney states his main theme, which is easily one of the most memorable themes he has composed recently you'll find yourself whistling it even after you're done listening to the CD. The horn section, usually reserved for counter-melody in much Debney's work, is primarily responsible for the performance of the main theme. While other sections of the orchestra perform the theme throughout the score, with little twists unique to each section, the moments of brass dominance are very powerful and are the most enjoyable moments in any CD I've listened to.

The non-march-style cues are also superb. Debney's use of the main theme throughout these tracks helps to maintain a thematic whole throughout the various styles of music interspersed on the CD. His characteristic woodwind and piano solos put the official Debney stamp on this CD. All in all this has quickly become one of my most treasured CD's in my collection. One must note the hefty amount of music on this CD (nearly an hour's worth) which makes this CD a great buy if you can find it at a fair price. Little Giants will not just surprise the casual listener with its elegance and outright joviality, but it is a MUST for all fans of John Debney's work. *****
