I have just finished listening to this score and have to say I think it is a masterpiece. I respect the reviewers opinion, but couldn't disagree more with what has been said. It's a gloriously majestic, involving score, the kind of which we rarely see these days alas. Epic is the word that springs to mind. Quiet similar to some of Leonard Rosenman's work too in it's avant-garde discordant moments. Exciting stuff!

Perhaps I have benefitted in some way with not having seen the film, so am listening to it as 'pure' music only. I love it! This one's going to get alot of repeat listens on the iPod. Great recording quality too - will give your system a thorough workout (if it's up to it!).

Bravo Mr North!
