5.0 out of 5 stars City Of Ember - Original Soundtrack 28 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD
O.K., to be honest, Andrew Lockington did not invent here the Soundtrack genre entirely new. We heard similar things occasionally. But nevertheless it is a catching piece of art, worth to listen to it with care.

The music itself is strongly symphonically influenced, in times with a decent touch of folk. The main theme is building up gradually over the entire length of the film, recurring several times. But you will have to wait for the very end, to enjoy it in full entirety. In this, the soundtrack follows nicely the run of the movie. As long as the protagonists are living in their subterranean refuge, which over the years has become more like a prison, the main theme is merely alluded to in several ways, but always stopping just before the wonderful musical culmination. It is only, when our search party reaches the surface of the earth and is experiencing a sunrise for the very first time in their life, that the City Of Ember-theme can be enjoyed in its totality for the first and only time too ("One Last Message"), thus reflecting the shared moment of liberation and relief to the notes.

Well, it's worth waiting for that, or you can right jump to track #24.

I would recommend the City Of Ember soundtrack to both, lovers of film-music as well as connoiseurs of the classical genre, or simply for people who like beautiful melodies.

But Warning: There is a good chance, that you will not be able to loose this catchy tune for some time !

5.0 out of 5 stars Really, really good! 3 May 2009
By Eiriol Owens - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the best children's movie soundtracks of our times. It's full of action, energy, and momentum, and it has that really great chord progression that Brian Tyler uses a lot (also used by Trevor Rabin in Deep Blue Sea, Howard Shore in LOTR: The Fellowship of the Ring, Harry Gregson-Williams and John Powell in Shrek). I find that there is a distinct similarity to Jerry Goldsmith's 'Star Trek Nemesis', and also an kind of Basil Poledouris feel. It is a lot like the soundtrack for 'Stardust' in that it reminds me of many great composers. It is totally worth buying. I look forward to seeing what Andrew Lockington will do next.

4.0 out of 5 stars enjouable soundtrack 23 April 2009
By Nicholas Della - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
An interesting soundtrack to listen to. It provides both sad and happy music and I find it good for listening to whilst doing other things. For those people who really enjoyed the movie, you'll be able to listen to this soundtrack and picture moments from the movie itself (kinda like have mini video clips playing along inside your head).

A good soundtrack from a good movie and I gave it 4 stars.
