Having been a huge fan of the most epic hidden gem Excelsius, Larry Groupe is back with Dream House, a compilation of orchestral/choral tracks that have been labeled as trailer music. I've listened to a lot of music by big trailer groups Two Steps From Hell and Immediate Music, Dream Cinema is not trailer music from a stylistic point of view.

Because of the nature of the CD (all of the tracks are unique and there's no thematic continuity across the album) I won't go into huge detail on all 16 the tracks separately. However, you can break down the tracks into different moods. "The Ultimate Cause" (Track 3) is almost near a carbon copy of Shore's Nazgul theme from Lord of the Rings, even down to the tempo, melody and chord progression. This is enjoyable, but the similarities were too close for my liking. This choral apocalyptic sound is also found in the sensational "Judgement Suite" (Track 8) and could be my favourite track on the album. If you blast this out loud, the neighbours will think the four horsemen have arrived!

There's also a lighter grouping of tracks which feature a light guitar and string accompaniment in "Corazon De Sevilla" (Track 2) and Elegance In Bloom (Track 8). There's a heroic style of tone in tracks such as "There Are Heroes Among Us" (Track 1) and "Where Dreams Are Made" (Track 14).

All the tracks are of the highest quality and the recording/mix is great.

Overall, If you are a fan of Groupe you will love this album, but don't be fooled into thinking this will have the grandiose scale of Excelsius, because it doesn't live up to that height. Nor should you get the album if you are expecting trailer style epic music with a slow build and a crescendo at the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars required listening for any real musician - or composer 9 July 2013
By R. Herring - Published on Amazon.com

Confuscious say - "Great music has simple movements". Simple yet profound, spanning yet approachable, Dream Cinema defies genere attempts to quantify it, but is a fully pleasant experience for all that. At the end of the day - it was great music, well worth listening to.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Majesty of Cinematic Themes 7 Sep 2013
By adamax - Published on Amazon.com
Larry Groupe has an inherent skill at writing beautiful and memorable melodic themes. Demonstrated first on his most excellent Excelsius, and now on his second album release DREAM CINEMA, Groupe sinks his musical genius into you and imparts some gorgeous and emotionally charged melodies that linger on for days - until you must listen again to recapture the beauty. Such an enjoyable CD!!!
