Buy it... if you require any proof whatsoever of John Ottman's composing talents, for this collection of released and unreleased material is both intelligent and engaging.

Avoid it... obviously if you're in search for any of Edward Shearmur's music that was eventually heard in the final cut of Cruel Intentions.

Ottman
Ottman
Cruel Intentions (Suites and Themes from the Scores of John Ottman): (Compilation) Riding a wave of popularity from scores like The Usual Suspects and Incognito, young composer John Ottman was often considered one of the best rising talents in Hollywood in the late 1990's. Unfortunately, he also happened to be one of the unluckiest during that same period of time. In those early years of scoring major feature films, before his blockbuster superhero scores of the 2000's gave him name recognition, he exhibited a refreshing style that defied comparison to any established composer. Each of his scores of the era shines with creativity, especially when considered under their circumstances of their often hasty and turbulent production. Ottman suffered from the deaf ears of studio executives in too many a case, leaving strong compositions for films such as Cruel Intentions and Halloween H2O without the films they were meant to bless. The quality of these works makes it clear that the fault for these rejected scores can certainly be placed on the shoulders of the films' producers. For each score of the 1990's, with the possible exception of the substandard Lake Placid at the end of the decade, Ottman adopted a style which very well reflects the attitudes and emotions of the films' characters, and for his intelligent work to be dismissed from a picture was just as frustrating for Ottman's growing nucleus of fans as it must have been for the composer himself. As a partial remedy, Ottman worked for a while to get his rejected score for Cruel Intentions released on a commercial album. The saucy and controversial film, while featuring a story that gained cult status with pop culture audiences and elevated actress Sarah Michelle Gellar's career to another level of sensuality, was plagued by poor choices in the supervision of its songs and score.
