Now Playing: alexander Nevsky- Prokofiev
I actually picked this one up because quite a few people were talking about it on the forum here and I was not disappointed. Goldenthal's work here is amazing and for me, each separate piece of music is top notch by itself. The reason i don't give it five stars is that as a whole the album doesn't have a flow. This was done on purpose and fits the needs of the film - so in that form it works wonderfully.
But listening to it as a music only experience is a bit jarring and I find I have to be in the mood for a listen of the complete album. However, whenever individual selections come on, or I run into my block of tracks in my "Film Scores" playlist I always enjoy it. More proof that Shakespeare has inspired some great film music.
