Well this is certainly a surprise review. After reading a brief comment by someone on an online soundtrack forum who mentioned this album and praised it highly, I thought it was worth checking out. I am so glad I did. This is one obscure release, but for those who find this page, you are in for a treat.

This is basically an orchestral soundtrack, that sounds like it has a relatively small number of players. Strings, piano and woodwind (predominantly oboe) sections dominate, with some very unobtrusive electronics layered over some of the tracks.

There are some absolutely stunning tracks on this album. I won't go into every one, but there are a few that have to be mentioned. "Growing Up" (track 4), "He Was More Than That" (track 10), and Items to Take (track 11) are spine tingling. The piano with strings and woodwind are sound fantastic, and this is normally something I would associate with James Newton Howard, who in my opinion is the best film composer when it comes to this type of instrumental pallet. These tracks are equal in standard to that of JNH, which I would say is high praise indeed. The pace of the album is fairly slow and it makes for a really relaxing listen. The rest of the album is of a very high standard as well.

Running in at just under 50 minutes, this is not the longest album ever produced, but I loved every minute of it.

A lighter and perhaps irrelevant point - at the time of writing (and assuming it hasn't changed), is it me or is the album art just completely bizarre? A moose head with elongated arms and five legs playing the piano?! It's the same on the fruity music download store as well, but how it's relevant to the Space Shuttle Columbia is not immediately apparent to me.

[...] This is a lovely little score. A true hidden gem. It's full of beautiful melodies and light orchestrations. It's nigh impossible not to like it; though you won't find anything spectacularly original here. It's a safe score; one that can easily be returned to again and again. I know I have! It's reminiscent of those lovely little scores from the 90s, by people like Isham, Newman or Shaiman. "October Sky" keeps coming to mind; for its overall style rather than any specific ideas. It's hard to award this much more than 3,5 stars as it is so firmly rooted in familiar territory, but having said that... its utterly inoffensive nature means I find myself playing this score far more often than most higher rated albums.[...]
