Buy it... if you are familiar with the heartbreaking but uplifting story and desire Brian Tyler's emotionally heavy but understated light rock music for inspiration.

Avoid it... if you expect Tyler's passion for the subject to translate into a full score of significant challenge or variance, the atmosphere and melodies eventually too consistent to maintain a long listening experience.

Clouds: (Brian Tyler) It's tough going into any biographical film involving a youngster with a terminal illness, but the 2020 movie Clouds successfully supplies the desired inspirational spotlight on the final months of Minnesota teenager Zach Sobiech's life and his dedication to living on in his music. Based on a book about the boy written by his mother, the film displays how Sobiech faced his diagnosis with terminal cancer by endeavoring to continue following his passion to set up a band and perform, ask his crush to the prom, and encourage others to live life to the fullest. Prior to his death in 2013, his one single, "Clouds," became an internet sensation, placing on Billboard's top single lists and drawing significant attention to his fight against cancer and will to inspire. The movie, which does little to hide the Catholic faith that drove the family of the young man, goes out of its way to involve the real-life people who were part of Sobiech's final days, turning the inevitably overwhelming sadness of the topic into a moving and enlivening experience met with decently warm but not overwhelming embrace from audiences. Originally a Warner Brothers property, Clouds was sold to Disney for distribution on its streaming platform due to the global pandemic, and it appealed to fans of the story, song, and the religious community simultaneously drawn in by the book's clear addressing of faith. For composer Brian Tyler, involvement with Clouds was an extremely personal experience that touched him far more than most of his other assignments. It's not atypical for a composer to write music for a film that is immensely appealing to his or her heart, James Horner particularly known for this habit, and Tyler set out to provide his own musical tribute to Sobiech and his final life philosophy by recording a very intimate score of minimal scope but high melodic character. Tyler's interest in Sobiech's life story led him to speculate about what type of musical score the young man would have written if he had someday become a film composer. The movie required its original music to exist amongst a number of source-like placements of music that Sobiech performed and penned, with Tyler serving to help produce some of these insertions. The score, therefore, fits in between these obvious feel-good placements of song material and drives a comparatively conservative emotional mood that is not meant to guide the personality of the film so much as augment its ambience.
