Forceful, empowered, and energetic. 18 April 2000
By D. Litton - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Never has a score had more energy and "life" in its compositions than that of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, composed by Patrick Doyle. His use of many instruments at once to create a feeling of hurried tension is astounding, and, combined with the nonstop moving of the camera, keeps the action moving. The ever-present love theme, which is based on Byron's "So we'll go no more a roving" poem, is heard in its entire in track twenty-one, entitled "The Wedding Night." This, above all others, will sweep you into the true emotional power of the film, allowing you to experience the feelings of the characters as well as the horror of the story itself. While some tracks called for a smaller orchestra, others, such as "Elizabeth" and "The Montser" required a full assembly. Totally moving and very forceful, this is a must for any soundtrack buff's collection, as well as fans of the 1994 film.

Big and Majestic 16 Nov. 2002
By North Idaho Dad - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Patrick Doyle is one of the most overlooked film composers working today. He regularly produces music of such majesty and breadth, such as this 1994 score for the Kenneth Branagh film. As with any great film score, the music works well both on-screen and as a stand-alone piece.

sweeping dread and sorrow 29 Sept. 2007
By David Haas - Published on
Format: Audio CD
A quote from the Bible used in the film is "For in much wisdom is much grief, and he who increases knowlege increases sorrow."

That sentiment is carried through very nicely through the film, and the pieces of Patrick Doyle's score echo it beautifully as well. The energy, the dread, the passion and pathos that infuse this music are at times stunning.

And there's a pulse to some pieces of the score, too, like hearing a man marching up a gallows of his own construction. Musically this suggests that the advances of time and scientific understanding are inevitable, but that the price for meeting and facing them will be terrible.

The creature represents the danger man risks by venturing into the alluring unknown, and like a phantom in Arctic mists, the score brings that sense to us with great success.

Not much for horror, but a truely exciting experience 30 Jan. 2000
By "drevil4934" - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Frankenstein has, let's face it, been a very hot subject over the last 50 years, and Patrick Doyle's splendor is dripping with excitement in this sharp, tragic explosion of colorful strings, blaring trumpets, and powerful drums. Victor's defiance of God is told on every track. The theme is moving and romantic, and the drums signaling something is amiss in his experiements were very emotional. My favorite part was the last track melted into an ensemble of sweeping of strings that was so tender and tragic it almost made me cry. Another great part is THE CREATION, a minute long blast of anoynomous instruments accompanied by a series of consistent taps of bells. The trumpets make you shiver with delight, and the image of Victor racing around the cathedral-like attic with the long, flowing robe becomes crystal-clear.
The roar of precussion and pompous blaring of wind gives this album a truely delicious flavor. One thing-who would have thought to cast Robert DeNiro as Frankenstein?
