Lincoln (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download music.
I heard a segment from "The People's House" during the trailer, and it was truly captivating. I can definitely tell why this is a top sell, but I urge listeners to preview the entire album. Even though a lot of John Williams' historical film motives and themes are heard, this is original and excitable to any film score fan not only because its written by a composing legend but because many great styles are represented: "Purpose of the AMendment" (thematic), "Getting Out the Vote" (jovial), "The American Process" (soloistic and hymnal), "The Blue and Grey" (ominous), "Freedom's Call" (folkish and haunting), "Remembering Willie" (Tearful, reverent), "Appomattox, April 9, 1865" (Choral beauty), "The Peterson House and Finale" (EPIC WILLIAMS THROWBACK). If you haven't screamed "Sold!" at the top of your lungs yet then you ought to be hyperventilating because this music is astounding and wondrous. Classic necessity for an iTunes library.
And the Academy Award will go to John Williams, for Lincoln. Outstanding soundtrack as always; he never disappoints.
If ever a soundtrack fit the movie so perfectly, I would have to say this is one for the history books. JW captured the essence of what this movie is flawlessly. If you get the chance, see the movie. Best Musical Score and Best Film of the Year hands down.
