Buy it... if you delight in nimbly flowing European romance scores dominated by rolling piano performances, Federico Jusid providing a well-executed exploration of the genre in this lovely work.

Avoid it... if you demand a cohesive musical narrative over a longer album presentation, this score never quite congealing into the classic it could have been.

El Verano Que Vivimos (The Summer We Lived): (Federico Jusid) A visually spectacular but otherwise lacking historical romance, El Verano Que Vivimos debuted in Spain in late 2020 to middling responses. The film's extraordinary exploration of the country's landscapes is countered by a plot that strives for intrigue and forbidden love but is ultimately trapped between two competing timelines and confusing flashbacks. A frustrated journalism student in 1998 interns at a remote Spanish newspaper that receives the same mysterious obituary each year. She is sent to the other end of the country on an investigation of these obituaries, learning that they had been coming from a recently deceased man with a suggestion of grand romance from decades past. The young woman teams with the man's reluctant son to determine the backstory of these obituaries and uncovers the sprawling love story from 1958 on the setting of a gorgeous vineyard. Death and deceit await in the troubled timeline, the story destined to be bittersweet. The soundtrack for El Verano Que Vivimos is headlined by a song of the same title by Alejandro Sanz, though that rather mundane entry has little in common with the original score by Argentinian composer Federico Jusid, whose work spans both American and Spanish projects on big and small screens. Jusid, while seeming a relative newcomer to many film music collectors after his increasingly impressive output in the late 2010's, has enjoyed a solid career dating back to the 1990's, and for enthusiasts of his more romantic orchestral capabilities, El Verano Que Vivimos will be a delight. In its basic demeanor, this work is Jusid's Spanish equivalent to Philippe Rombi's approach to similar French cinema, airy but deeply affecting romance genre swooning that overwhelms with the force of a feather. The composer plays upon the movie's appeal to the senses by overplaying his role in a few passages, the music sometimes overwhelming scenes with its shamelessly lovely attitude. But such expressions may compensate for the movie's questionable plot, and they certainly provide for an outstanding listening experience outside of the film.
