This film score is all what film music is about, as an independant listen and also it works for what it was written for, the movie!
It is excellently written in a John Barry style and full marks should go to Alexandre Desplat for giving us this wonderful score.
If you apprieciate good film music or even just music you will love this!

I fell in love with this music, only to discover the other CD has a surprise of a completely different, but related, genre. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Alexandre desplat seems to me to be one of the most underrated of contemporary movie composers working today.
Most people can name James Horner, Hans Zimmer, Michael Nyman etc., yet, Desplat has been producing some of the most consistently beautiful film scores of recent years - 'The Girl with a Pearl Earring' a case in point.
And here, with 'Benjamin Button' he has really excelled himself.
Simply put, this has to be some of the most beautiful music I have heard in a very long time.
'A New Life' is heart-tuggingly beautiful and 'It was nice to have met you' contains sprinkles of the kind of sparkly strings that wouldn't have seemed out of place on the Pinocchio soundtrack - just at the part where he realizes he has become a real boy! 'Sunrise on Lake Ponchartran' is even more gorgeous than its title.
Lush yet understated, quirky yet comforting - The soundtrack - like the F Scott Fitzgerald story it describes, is a proper little charmer. Destined to linger long in the ears, heart and memory.
If you feel in need of a little home-made romance this Valentine's day, Luxuriate in this, definitely the Aural equivalent of chocolate but without the calories... infact, it's the chocolate Button you can enjoy guilt-free over and over again!
