Henry Mancini would be proud   Wednesday, July 4, 2007 (3:45 p.m.) 

The film is not coming out here till August the 1st, but after listening to the soundtrack I have to say it is already one of the finest scores of the year.

For me, Michael Giacchino did it again. What a delightfull orchestrations and playfull instrumentations of highly complex cues and themes. To some extend this score reminded me a lot of the great works of Henry Mancini.

Brilliant stuff. I wish all scores for animated films where this good. Here's hoping for a few award nominations.

I agree too...if Michael Giacchino heralds out scores of this caliber (though i hope they mature in the tone...for example more dramatics and action cues...the playful things are fun, but Giacchino should make a name of himself by doing heavy drama scores too)...he'll be at the same status as John Williams at his age now...def. ranks as on if not the best of a year w/ poor musical scores...good job Michael Giacchino.
