3.0 out of 5 stars Nice song, shame about the film, 6 May 2011
This review is from: Lyra (The Golden Compass) (MP3 Download)
I wanted to see the film 'The Golden Compass' because Kate Bush had recorded the song 'Lyra' for it. I wasn't happy with the film and I'd like to read the original book ('Northern Lights') to see how much the original story was tampered with by the film producers. I felt the film was a big build up to this song and anyone else who wasn't an avid fan would be fleeing for the exits. She may as well have covered the 'Family Guy' theme!

However, I did get hold of the song as a download. It's a fair enough leftover from 'Aerial''s second disc, sound wise, but delving further I now realise it's a reworking of a song she wrote for a Disney movie about dinosaurs, which got dropped as the powers that be felt it wouldn't fit. Does anyone think it's time for KB and Tony Banks (who himself was messed around by the makers of the '2010' movie) to unite and work towards a rival film and music organisation?

A far better song relating to the 'His Dark Materials' trilogy is 'Set Your Compass' from Steve Hackett's 'Wild Orchids' album. He's read and enjoyed Philip Pullman's books - more than I can say for the makers of the film!
