Album Review

It's virtually impossible to separate The Pink Panther franchise and its comedic hero Inspector Clouseau from Henry Mancini's immortal title theme, and composer Christophe Beck doesn't even try — his score for the 2006 Steve Martin-headlined remake is a heartfelt if tedious Mancini homage that references the theme in a series of contexts and genres spanning from tango to electronic pop. Only a scant few of Beck's melodies fail to acknowledge Mancini's inspiration, which signifies what a thankless task awaits any composer tackling material so closely identified with another artist, not to mention what a thankless task awaits the listener who opts for the sequel instead of the original.

Customer Reviews

What's the Joke?

Yeah, Christophe Beck's score for the reboot of The Pink Panther isn't that great a score.
First of all he does a pretty impressive update on the original "The Pink Panther Theme", updating it for the 21st Century but the rest of the soundtrack itself a little dull, tedious and dare I say it's a little unispired and a little silly in spots.

Secondly, Christophe Beck (I really don't mean to be biased) is not my cup of tea and probably never will. The majority of the score is mostly uninspired, by-the-numbers comedy background music. Beck doesn't capture any of Henry Mancini's beauty, though I'm sure he has plenty of respect for him.

Overall, it's not a great score but it's not atrocious either. Trust me I've heard worse.
