BSB At The Top And Rising


I was waiting so paitiently for this album for about a year and now its finally out. Like their self title cd and Millennium BSB has released another successfull cd. I got it the first day and it was worth it. Theirs a little bit of different sounds in their music but over all its still the Backstreet Boys. Backstreet Boys are #1 and they will always be #1.Keep The Backstreet Pride Alive.

Looking for something different?


If you are looking for an interesting CD that is different from all that Hit Me Baby One More Time music that we get on Top 40 radio, then I suggest you try this album out. Anthony Stewart Head has one of the most interesting singing voices I have ever heard. Thank god the people over at Buffy let him sing in a few episodes, because this guy has talent.
The CD itself is a bit weird, it isn't going to have you humming tunes while at work. I guess I would describe it as Enya with an edge.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans you won't be disappointed...pick this album up as it has appearances by Amber Benson, Allyson Hannigan, and James Marsters.

Breathtaking; Strikingly Innovative and Well Used


This score is brilliant. I'm a great fan of William's work,(didn't like "A.I."'s very much though) but personally this is now my favorite of his. The entire score captures the essence of the movie, in every note and orchestration. It easily has the makings to be one of those famous themes akin to "The Alamo", "Indiana Jones" "Jurassic Park" "Superman" "Star Wars" and I daresay even "Jaws" (funny, all but one are Williams'). But this score is plain catchy, can hold your nerves and breath. It's thrilling at times in that excited way and seems strangely powerful in that it's representing a little boy, in that case it's helping tell the story, which it does on various levels regarding which character is on screen. And there are parts that are downright beautiful. Strangely, there are many parts of the score you don't even notice because they fit in so well. It's not a volume problem or anything, just the fact that it integrates so well with each scene, and is musically camouflouged so instead of ruling the scene as some scores bombastically do, it collaborates with the movie. This is the first film with a brilliant soundtrack other than "Little Women"(1994) where I've noticed that.
The score may remind you of fairy tales, or of stories you were told once upon a time, of how we can relax once in a while, of good times before the storm. It'll remind you of the children's magic hour, and it'll make you want to fly, perhaps make you tear up. The opening theme made people in my audience cheer and it's true that that's what it can do, easily. My favorite track though, which was my favorite in the film also, is one called "Leaving Hogwarts" (18), and it somewhat left me in a trance in the theatre and while listening seperately. In a way it recreates the whole movie and score. Just like the score it's triumphant and sad, soft, powerful, mischevious and strangely foreboding, looking to the end result which is 6 books and 6 movies away.
This score is a work of art in it's innovation and beauty. Williams does not waste his time, and was by far the best choice. If he walks away with an Oscar this year, it should be for this highly original and inspired score.
