Get it right!

This OST is for the excellent "The Tree of Life", not some film about a chess match.

Terrence Mallick (the director) would be appalled......

The film, by the way is superb. As is the soundtrack.


None of the beautiful music I liked from the film appears in the album I feel really cheated I am sure some of the music in the album isn't even in the film?

And iTunes why can't I read the negative reviews of the album you are only permitting the positive reviews this stinks!

Poor film great Soundtrack

I would recommend not watching this film, unless however you love photography as some of the imagery is quite amazing this is where the soundtrack comes in. Its moving and ambiant and also powerful. I love buying soundtracks and this is one where you can just get lost and enjoy. I think this may be one of the first soundtracks I have bought when I havent liked the film accompanying it. Still well worth a listen.
