This review is from: American Beauty (Audio CD)
never has a film affected the way i live my life in such a way. the film american beauty combined with the delicate, beautiful soundtrack created by thomas newman creates a powerful message across to its audience which is hard to ignore.
the soundtrack itself is a work of art in its own right giving an emotional, mellow atmosphere that seems to slow life right down and give you time to reflect on what’s important, and what’s not. it isolates the listener and blocks them off from the outside world, and allows you to relate yourselve to the modern day tragic hero, lester.
highly recommend listening to it on a bus or walking through a busy street for watching life just drift by, or is perfect for a long hot bath too.

Interesting how you give music an ideal situation to be listened in. Really great music has that magical feeling that almost takes you out of your environment. I feel that way about Joy Division's single Love Will Tear Us Apart - that is a great song to listen to with a good pair of noise cancelling headphones and just wander through a busy street feeling completely at ease. But be careful when crossing a road.
