Varese Records demonstrates with this latest release from John Ottman - "FANTASTIC FOUR", just how varied this composer can be. Do not restrict this talented man of music with his past achievements - "The Usual Suspects", "The Cable Guy", "Bubble Boy", "Incognito(Score)", "Eight Legged Freaks(Score)", "Urban Legends-Final Cut", "Apt Pupil", "Goodbye Lover", "Lake Placid", "X2:Original Motion Picture Score", "Cellular", "Hide and Seek", and "Portrait of Terror"...which is just the tip of the iceberg.
Instead of a classical approach, the producers decided the score should be more contemporary, well our composer took on the challenge and wrote a strikingly unique, emotionally deep score with an eccentric blend of beat rhythms, Hollywood Studio Symphony and the Page LA Studio Voices....there are layers of underscore, infusing complex moods with passages of modern themes, very effective and wonderfully original.
Ottman always brings the necessary emotions to a film through his music, which could explain why this composer is always in demand...recorded at The Newman Stage, 20th Century Fox...once again, special thanks to Robert Townson (executive producer), Casey Stone (producer), Damon Intrabartolo (conductor), Varese Sarabande and of course Composer John Ottman for releasing this "movie-music" collectors dream...a must have for ALL the "film-score-buffs" out there!
