5.0 out of 5 stars Lost Horizon Weathers the Storm, 18 Jan 2011
A Kid's Review
This review is from: Lost Horizon: Original Soundtrack (Audio CD)
The title of the film was quite appropriate. For no sooner had it arrived upon the scene than a tidal wave of discord swept it away, leaving it hull down over the proverbial.

For my part, the film ain't really that bad. To be certain, there are those who would argue the point. But with the CD we are not dealing with the film. The music upon it is something else when taken into consideration on it's own. The thing is it's a nostalgic guilty pleasure. The songs were written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David. What more could anyone want (or expect) from this most talented of dynamic duos? It is rumoured the Lost Horizon project put the seal on their hugely successful partnership so that it demarcated, in one way or the other, the end of an era.

Which is a bit of a shame really. There is much to be enjoyed. I particularly like Andrea Willis who dubbed Olivia Hussey. Her singing of "Share the Joy" leaves me wanting more of her voice. The same goes for Diana Lee, who sang in place of Liv Ullman. It should be noted that Sally Kellerman sang all her own songs. I'll concede some of the songs are rather quaint, but so what? There is nothing wrong with the sentiment expressed in songs that carry alot more melody than the never ending parade of electro-pop (or whatever) clones on offer these days.

Credit goes to Joe Caporiccio, who unearthed the stereo masters making it possible for Lost Horizon to shine a light on those wary souls in seek of some good old-fashioned, light-hearted merriment.
