Buy it... if you somewhat enjoyed Cliff Eidelman's ventures into the character drama genre in the 1990's and would be interested in one of the better variants of his softer touch.

Avoid it... if you own none off those lighter Eidelman scores (or an equivilent Rachel Portman score, for that matter) and are still waiting for him to return to his adventurous roots.

Eidelman
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants: (Cliff Eidelman) Based on the stories of four girls in a novel by Ann Brashares, director Ken Kwapis' The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants tells of the young lives of four high school seniors who have grown up together since birth, and share a common bond with a pair of used pants that miraculously (given their different shapes and sizes) fits them all. As they head off to lives of their own, they each wear the pants for a week before shipping the pair on to the next girl on the list. Various other rules involving the pants make The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants a story with innocent and decent morals. Kwapis is no stranger to this genre of film, nor is his usual collaborator, composer Cliff Eidelman. Together for The Beautician and the Beast and Sexual Life, Eidelman's music has ranged from the fully orchestral in the former to a tightly knit chamber piece for the latter. Eidelman's career has been one of significant frustration for collectors of film music, with many parallels being drawn between his career and those of a few other relatively young upstarts in the 1990's, including Joel McNeely and Mark McKenzie. It was Eidelman who hit the scene with a bang in the early 1990's with verbose, fully orchestral scores that promised a career of significant recognition and success. Starting in the mid-1990's, however, Eidelman became involved with smaller character dramas (A Simple Twist of Fate, Now and Then, One True Thing), and since then has become seemingly hopelessly mired in the somewhat uninspiring genre ever since. These scores are the perpetual 3-star variety of pleasant, undemanding, and easily listenable themes for small orchestras, often led by Eidelman's tendency to put the piano at the forefront. Whether he likes it or not, he has become the American version of Rachel Portman, minus the melodramatic strings of the famed British master of light character scores.
