    It's only fair that a great movie like BENJAMIN BUTTON is accompanied by a fantastic score; Desplat did his job perfectly, delivering a powerful, soothing score that perfectly captures the many different moods and moments of the film. Extra Credit goes to SUNRISE ON LAKE PONTCHARTRAIN. Highly recommended.

    This Soundtrack is PHENOMENAL!!!!

    I love the first cd with my heart and soul. The music touches you, moves you and delights you. What is ironic is that I haven't even seen the movie yet. I collect various soundtracks and this is among my very favorite. I was lucky to sample this at the Prudential Barnes and Noble and from the very first note, I was hooked. I highly recommend - please enjoy and take in every moment. :)

    What a wonderful gift

    The first CD especially is hauntingly beautiful. If you've seen the movie, the music will easily bring you back to the many memorable scenes.
