Two-time Oscar nominee Marco Beltrami is and remains the most exciting young (everything's relative, he's in his 40s now) composer at work in Hollywood. This is another classic, with all the Beltrami hallmarks - dark, terse, haunting and utterly compelling writing, with his deft blending of synths and orchestra an example to lesser composers.

A must for Beltrami devotees, a great intro for newbies, this is great film scoring.

This the second soundtrack by Mr Beltrami I have purchased. Sadly, you will only get HIS music - despite in this case awesome contributions from Matt Bellamy (Muse) on the original movie soundtrack. The other was Flight of the Phoenix. Having said that there are some quality sound bites. Though you will feel short-changed if you expect the complete WWZ experience - especially the haunting opening title.Buyer beware.

[...] With it being a horror score, and quite an aggressive one at that, it won't be everyone's cup of tea. "Finding Neverland" this is not! The score bumps and grinds along, building tension; and as such it's hard to describe it as a `pleasant' experience. Having said that, it's as cleverly written as anything Beltrami has done. It contains two subtle themes that make a few (if only a few) appearances and the action music is genuinely exciting; though I wouldn't have minded hearing a few more thematic cues on this album. The large orchestral performance (and its recording) is crisp and the percussion provides a genuine drive to the whole affair. It just goes to show that you don't need a hundred drummers to make an impact. It also goes to show you don't need a battery of synthesizers to make those ostinato strings sound interesting. Beltrami infuses some well-chosen synthesizer sounds into his score, but it is the clarity and sheer force of the orchestra that makes this score truly exciting.[...]
