The movie's events can almost be traced by the soundtrack events: It opens with the ominous, rough "The Blitz, before switching to the delicate, sad strains of "Evacuating London." From there on, there are all kinds of songs, to match whatever is going on in the movie -- the peace and grandeur of Aslan's camp, the thrill of meeting Father Christmas, the sadness and horror of the sacrifice, the excitement of a coronation, and the beauty and sorrow of a doomed battle.
If it sounds glorious, it is. Gregson-Williams makes the music sound both fantastical and rich, as the movie needs. The most haunting song is only a minute and a quarter long: Tumnus' "Narnia Lullaby," a flute song backed by tribal drums. It starts off soft, but slowly grows more intense and eerie.
Oh, and a note to moviegoers: That exquisite, soaring ballad that you heard as the credits started was NOT Alanis Morrisette. It was electro-pop singer Imogen Heap. "Oh, empty my heart/I've got to make room for this feeling/So much bigger than me," she sings over an increasingly epic tip-hop backdrop. Man, she was robbed.
Not that Morrisette's song is unworthy -- her "Wunderkind" is a solid production, earthier and more rock-y, but still with an otherworldly charm. Her song sounds like an ode to Lucy, "And I am a magnet for all kinds of deeper wonderment/I am a wunderkind/I am a groundbreaker naïve enough to believe this/I am a princess on the way to my throne...Read more ›
The music is absolutley beautiful and it really does connect well with how you picture Narnia to be. Its very emotional and really feels as if you are going on a Narnia journey yourself as you listen. I think in itself the music is wonderful but I think this is heightened by being connected to Narnia as it creates a feeling of magic and childhood nostalgia.
I chose to buy this edition because I'm a big fan and collector of anything Narnia. My advice is, buy the other version if you just want the music. If your a fan and follower of the books and the film, buy this version.
Worse still it asks you to agree a user licence agreement it doesn't even show you... So you have no idea what you're agreeing to!
I urge IPod owners, and music fans who own a PC to wait for it on the ITunes music store... Don't buy this CD.
I listen to the soundtrack when reading, I listen to it when studying and I even had it on during a cards night but I Digress! There are a number of tracks in particuler that I really like but the main one would have to be the one aptly title The Battle. This was a truly stirring piece and even in some truly great soundtracks I have yet to find one so well linked to the scene it portrays in the film.
Emotions during this piece are raging and in particuler the music accompnying the charge by Peter and his army at the beginning of the battle had the hackles rising on the back of my neck!!!
It has a real magical feel about it as the film is obviously supposed to project and this is of course in no smallpart due to its soundtrack. Other particuler pieces well done were the music accompnying the evacuation from London, the meeting between Lucy and Tumnus and the Narnian lullaby used to send Lucy to sleep.
All in all the soundtrack was just right in portraying tension, action, and a warm glow in your belly.
I have bought it from Amazon.......at the flick of a few buttons you can too!!
The main theme music to the movie is a very memorable tune that you quickly associate with the movie as its signature, as all themes should do. One of my favourite tracks is "The Battle", with sweeping peaks and lows and changing density to match the emotion of the movie.
"A Narnia Lullaby" is another strong track full of mystery and with a punch.
I really love the "Can't Take It In" song performed by Imogen Heap at the end of the movie. It's a really excellent feel-good track.
Alanis Morissette's song "Wunderkind" which plays over the main credits at the end is another good track, that fits the movie very well.
A couple of the tracks are a bit ordinary and some of the other good arrangements I liked from the movie have been left off this CD. On the whole though, this is a CD which is great to play at anytime.
