Great stuff, but...

...let's not lose our heads about this score's originality. I think Randy himself would acknowledge the obvious nods to Aaron Copland throughout this piece. Listen to 'Appalachian Spring' and 'Rodeo' to make a difinitive analysis of the source of 'inspiration' for numerous "Americana' musical moments. That being said - I truly cherish this movie and particularly the effective score that is such an integral part of the experience.

Randy Newman: Genius

Can't think of a movie anthem more plagerized. It's in commercials, sports shows, awards shows, and even in other movies! No better sports soundtrack. "Rudy" comes close. Probably in the top three movie soundtracks of all time. IMHO. He's been a machine that produces a great soundtrack every 2-3 years,and he's not finished, Check out "Cars". On a personal note: Want to forget your troubles? Listen to this album on any quiet park bench. 15 minutes: poof!

good

this album is great. the music is inspiring. it really gets you at times
