Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The music is sedate at times and has the occasional build of tension in line with the story of the in interesting and unusual life of James Whale. The reason I purchased the soundtrack is for the sound engineering and production qualities. The CD a does not disappoint on good playback system. Nice separation of instruments, good bass and definition of the instruments used, the orchestra utilised comprises of around 30 members. Recommended for its audio production quality

Pleasure for the ears! 17 Feb. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This soundtrack really capture with flaire and sensibility all the emotions carried in the movie. The music, subtle and very touching, is a masterpiece in self-restrain and effectiveness. It proves that you don't need a full-blown orchestra to carry emotions. The CD really reflects the mood of the movie and is must to anyone who loved the movie.

A Musical Masterpiece from the Contemporary Cinema 12 Nov. 2001
By Michael R Gates - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Carter Burwell's musical score for GODS AND MONSTERS is truly one of the most beautiful and haunting works from the contemporary cinema. It is at times soothing or melancholy, while at other times it is eerie, mysterious, and even downright spooky. The film for which it was written is, of course, Writer-Dirctor Bill Condon's somewhat controversial bio-pic that explores, using both facts and speculation, the last weeks in the life of James Whale, himself a famed film director who is probably best known for his early horror flicks like FRANKENSTEIN and THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN. It is only fitting, then, that the music, much like Whale's life and career, fluctuates in both mood and timbre.
Today it is well known that Whale was a homosexual, and the film GODS AND MONSTERS openly addresses this fact. Needless to say, the film itself may not appeal to those who are easily offended by obvious allusions to the gay lifestyle or its inherent practices. However, any movie buff who enjoys the films created by James Whale will certainly enjoy the musical score to GODS AND MONSTERS. In another time, Burwell's music could have easily worked for THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN or THE INVISIBLE MAN.

Sentimental and Nostalgic 25 April 2000
By KingFifty4@aol.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I hope it doesn't make the CD sound cheap when i say that it is Sentimental; it's truly a good thing. This music could be nothing but Sentimental. James Whale was a phenomenal character and the music fabulous Carter Burwell created to accompany his story is perfect. It waltzes over and over again stressing the importance of life with a flair. Exactly what James Whale seemed to long for in the film. A life of love and social fun.

Melancholy and beautiful 22 Aug. 2004
By Scott Roy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This score is what first got me interested in Carter Burwell. After hearing this beautiful soundtrack, I began to notice what other films he had scored, ironically ones that were already favorites of mine, such as 'The Hudsucker Proxy', 'Hamlet' and 'Fargo.' The opening track is haunting and slowly builds up. There is also a lovely waltz theme that comes up throughout the CD which can be heard in the track 'Love in the Trenches'. While parts of the score are very quiet and reflective, but never brooding, other parts are brash and loud, with crashing orchestral bursts. These moments only last a short time, and soon the score resumes its subdued tone again. If you've seen the movie, the music is very effective in reminding you of particular scenes in the film. A beautiful and unique score. Just wish it was longer!
