Customer Reviews

Delightful & Different!

I always love the music of Christophe Beck, whether it's the drama of the "Buffy" TV score, the power of "We Are Marshall" or the beauty of "Under the Tuscan Sun." This album is another winner: playful, fun, sweet, and with a lively acoustic sound. Check out tracks 1 & 2 for a good example of the sound of this score... it's great fun and excellent "sunshiney day" music.

I only want one song!!

Music for a Found Harmonium; that's the ONLY song I want from this group. Not the jazzed up versions of this song either. That was the only song I wanted from the Napoleon Dynamite movie, but it wasn't on their soundtrack. Why being so stingy with the best song you've got, people?? I'd be MUCH more prone to purchasing more of your songs if I was able to buy the one I wanted to FIRST. Just offering the song with the conditional of buying a bunch of other songs tells me that your other songs must be crap, therefore to get rid of them, tack them on to your one big seller. NOT A GOOD IDEA in this ipod era. For this reason alone, I will NOT purchase this album, not even to get the ONE song I DO want.

Delightful, Whimsical, Fitting

Christophe Beck crafts a quiet, understated soundtrack that perfectly matches Molly Shannon's understated portrayal of an animal lover in mourning. The music fits perfectly with the movie, never overpowering it, and only truly rising to meet your ears in the final scenes. The score fit so well that it was only until I heard "Peggy's Goodbye" that I realized how well it was composed. To that end, I purchased the final Beck tune on the disc, which is a beautiful wandering waltz, evoking the feeling of traveling and soaring through life. A mournful yet uplifting chord progression expresses what we see Peggy contemplating - a goodbye, a hello, a transition; another step in the journey of the life she shares with the animals she loves.
