There are many soundtracks that seem to be lost when listened to away from the film, however, this is NOT one of them. The haunting melody that runs through the film seems to reach deep inside, touching deep recesses that generate emotions. Listen to it in the car and you will relax, listen late at night and you will be calmed - it's that sort of music, touching so much and giving far more than expected.
I loved this from the first time I heard it, indeed immediately after seeing the film I hunted down the record; now I have the CD and even after many years of listening to it, it still draws deep feelings to the surface - wonderful.
It is one of those pieces of music that, when you close your eyes, conjures up images of love and happiness and yet can be so very sad at the same time. Indeed John Barry must have a touch of genius in order to switch deep emotions on after just a few bars.
In short if you are a romantic, buy it, you will not be disappointed.
