The Giachinno Of JW's Emotional...   Monday, December 15, 2003 (7:28 a.m.) 

Karpman to doing William'classic emotional pieces what Giachinno did to his action? This sounds interesting, even if a bit of a shame that she only had a 40 strong orchestra. I'd look into this if I weren't put off by the 45 min run time. That's poor for a film album, let alone a 20 hour series.

I both like a lot albums from John Williams and Taken,yet I can' t notice any similarites between Taken and other JW albums.This music is full of interesting orchestral solutions,beautiful piano and string work,outstanding brass,percussion and woodwinds section.I see that you don' t listen to all of it so far,since you think there are only emotional and relaxing cues.There are also action and suspenseful cues such as Spaceship,Romans and Tom' s Revenge,and cues with complex orchestrations,which means that these tracks both contain action and relaxing or emotional musical elements:check out cues such as To The Rescue and Allie' s Fire.Furthermore,I would like to know what exactly is stolen by Karpman from Williams.Please,share your thoughts with me.

I don't think he's going to respond to you since he wrote that comment three years ago, but you're right and he's wrong.

This is a wonderful album. I'm an ENORMOUS fan of John Williams, but I have to admit that this is one of my favorite soundtracks of all time. It is a bit short, but boy does it pack a punch in those 45 minutes. It can be utterly beautiful, lonely and uplifting all at the same time. It also has some very interesting and excellent action cues (if that's what you tend to like).

I would recommend this album to soundtrack and classical music fans alike. It has a distinct concert music feel to it, and could be readily arranged to become a concert suite. As a classical musician myself and a great fan of soundtracks, I would give this album 7 out of 5 stars.

I wish Laura Karpman would have more of her compositions released on cd.

Thank you! That's a great website- it has some good clips.
A couple of those Everquest II cues are great. Maybe she'll release a soundtrack eventually. It looks like in order to get it you have to buy the Collector's Edition of the game, and I'm not about to do that.

Thanks, again!
