Come See the Paradise
Another one of those tiny scores, this time there is only eighteen minutes of instrumental music, a little over half the album's length. This coupled with the fact that the soundtrack is now out of print and difficult to get, would make it very off putting.
The second track makes it worth it, the other tracks by Edelman are just bonuses. The second track is probably familiar to almost everyone who has been to the movies, as it is the most often used trailer music used. It's used because it is a heart-pounding, action-orientated minute of music.
The rest of the score is exotic, with a strange feel useful for those unusual adventures. Most of it is bitter sweet, or sorrowful, but the first track is raw, simple and beautiful.
One of those gems that come along once in a while.
