Buy it... if you appreciate pretty, but understated romance scores with a touch of intrigue and despair that require amplification to high volumes (and probably repeat listens) to fully grasp.

Avoid it... if you expect Mychael Danna to either develop his themes in this score into truly memorable performances or, conversely, to exhibit the same level of thoughtful intelligence usually evident in his works.

Danna
The Time Traveler's Wife: (Mychael Danna) The writers of romance novels will attempt to conjure any bizarre circumstance through which to test the boundaries of romance, and in Audrey Niffenegger's lengthy, bestselling novel, a new twist of science fiction is applied to the average contemporary love story. The man in this tale is an introverted sort who has traveled through time uncontrollably for most of his life but always returns inevitably to the current timeline. Most of his trips send him to places or people important to him, and he watches the woman of his dreams grow up from a girl until, inevitably, the two end up together as adults. There are tear-jerking opportunities galore in The Time Traveler's Wife, though the fact that the man spins through time naked is among the few humorous aspects of the idea. Much of the film concentrates, obviously, on how the woman copes with her suddenly disappearing soulmate, a somewhat frequent event that continues despite the fact they start a family. Men hoping to be presented with a good time paradox or two to chew on will be disappointed by what otherwise can be classified as a "chick flick," and reviewers were pretty much split among those who could tolerate the concept and those who found it shallow. Writing the score for The Time Traveler's Wife was Mychael Danna, an intriguing choice for director Robert Schwentke to turn to after employing James Horner for Flightplan several years prior. Danna's career has been well constructed to handle the strange and exotic, the results almost always intelligent and thought provoking. Straight forward romances are another issue, however. He has ventured into this genre into the past, most notably for Bounce, but the vast majority of his most discussed work has been written for worldly or exotic subject matter that has allowed him to exhibit his masterful skills at Middle Eastern and other regional instrumentation.
