Day After Tomorrow

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
Harald Kloser's score for the environmental disaster film The Day After Tomorrow has an appropriately epic, orchestral heft. Mixing slow, implosive passages with sudden outbursts, pieces like "Tornado Warning," and "Sam!" mirror the film's concept of sudden, radical climate shifts wreaking havoc on the U.S.. Even the tracks that have a relatively consistent mood are juxtaposed to create contrast: the mounting panic implied by the squalling horns and percussion in the aptly crashing "Tidal Wave" and the tense "Russian Ghost Ship" is followed by the bittersweet calm of tracks like "Body Heat" and "Hall's Plan."

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
Harald Kloser's score for the environmental disaster film The Day After Tomorrow has an appropriately epic, orchestral heft. Mixing slow, implosive passages with sudden outbursts, pieces like "Tornado Warning," and "Sam!" mirror the film's concept of sudden, radical climate shifts wreaking havoc on the U.S.. Even the tracks that have a relatively consistent mood are juxtaposed to create contrast: the mounting panic implied by the squalling horns and percussion in the aptly crashing "Tidal Wave" and the tense "Russian Ghost Ship" is followed by the bittersweet calm of tracks like "Body Heat" and "Hall's Plan." For the most part, the score is ominous; although a few rays of hope peek through on tracks such as "Bedtime Story," "Cutting the Rope," and "President's Speech"; the grim drama of "Blizzard" and "Superfreeze," and the bleak strings on "Because of You" set the tone for the film's music. Despite the score's powerful feel, its pieces are remarkably short, with few of them topping the three-and-a-half minute mark. Given the film's spectacular nature, Kloser could have tried to compete with the visuals and crafted an overblown score, but the conciseness of his music gives the film a little more balance. The score's closing pieces, "The Human Spirit" and "Burning Books," border on the melodramatic, but most of The Day After Tomorrow is an effective counterpoint to the movie's action.

    THIS IS 1 OF MY 10 FAVORITE MOVIE SCORES

    Without Harald Klosers outstanding music there would have been no disasterous feelings in this disaster movie. This truly sets a mood and expresses the feeling of the characters through the music. This a truly outstanding sountrack

    Love it!

    I must say that I find this movie and its soundtrack both at the top of their class. All the science behind the movie is quite sound as well. I applauld the producer and the director for a most enjoyable experience.

    Thankfully *NOT* a disaster of epic proportions...but only just

    This is composer Harold Kloser's first chance at hitting it at the big boys league after almost three decades of toiling on tv and, for the most part, carries it off with panache although several tracks suffer from a pedestrian effort, if I may say so. To give credit where credit is due, Kloser delivers us with everything that you'd expected and required of him; the cliche list is duly ticked off: thundering, percussion-heavy crescendos - "Tidal Wave" - and tension-maintaing cues, such as "Cutting the Rope". Thus is generated a work free of any real innovation or 'thematic definition'. Kloser, and indeed you and me, are short-changed with this paltry, 38-minute showcase. Well, at least "Because of You" is quite good, with sweeping string arrangements underlining the indomitable human spirit. Ironically, it is because of having all the cliches ticked off that I give it three stars because, although devoid of ingenuity, it is entertaining stuff. That's life for ya!!

    Excellent

    When I first the music when the movie began it sounded like James Horner's music. This is the first work I have heard from this composer and I loved it.
