Album Review

Actor/director Bill Paxton's weepy golf drama concerning the underdog-led 1913 U.S. Open is treated with ample sentimentality and sepia-tone goodness by composer Brian Tyler (Bubba Ho-Tep, Darkness Falls, Constantine). With echoes of similarly themed sports dramas like The Natural, Miracle, and Field of Dreams, Tyler's score is rousing, lush, and romantic to a fault, with a sweeping main theme that conjures up images of trophies being thrust into the air with credits rolling over them. Tyler, to his credit, doesn't fully succumb to the "soaring strings" complex, as his tendency to insert liberal amounts of piano and acoustic guitar give the soundtrack a much needed identity. Opera star Dawn Upshaw and an almost sneering Joe Jackson — he also appears briefly in the film — perform a couple of standards, "The Band Played On" and "Hello Hello Who's You're Lady Friend," respectively, while Jackson contributes his own "Angel" for Upshaw to sing.

Customer Reviews

A wonderful departure for Brian Tyler

This album has such a great Americana-type vibe to it... along the lines of "The Natural" or Lee Holdridge's score for "Pastime." I haven't seen the movie, but the music exists beautifully as a standalone product and makes for excellent listening. I'd love to see Brian Tyler do more scores like this. He's up there with Patrick Doyle, Kerry Muzzey and Alexandre Desplat in the list of "composers I would love to see doing more movies." Check out my iMixes for a great collection of contemporary film scores!
