This is a wonderful recording! In particular, the mastering is superb. You don't usually get such a varied dynamic range on film score recordings but on this CD it's obvious that attention was paid to ensuring that the musicality of the scores was kept in place - the loud bits are not just loud, they are passionate , luxurious, motivating and the quiet bits are mysterious, gentle, peaceful etc. I think the mastering on this CD captures Tiomkin's intended volumes and quality perfectly. This disc tops all other Tiomkin collections.
