Overview

Although film score composers must write functional music that responds to the emotional and dramatic needs of their films, many adopt an overall stylistic approach, either in terms of instrumentation or style. Trevor Jones, whose score makes up the bulk of this "music from" soundtrack, in contrast seems determined to demonstrate his versatility, ranging from folk and Celtic music to rock, melodic pop, sweet orchestral themes, and choir singing, sometimes veering from one style to another within the same track. All scores lose something when heard without the visual information they are meant to accompany, but more than most, Jones' score on disc comes off more as a set of music cues than a unified work, which is not to say it doesn't have its interesting moments. It will certainly be useful as a demonstration that he can write in many different styles. There are four vocal tracks -- two versions of the title song, co-written and performed by Sting in a Celtic mood, the piano ballad "Parting Request," by Maia Sharp, and a version of "Let the Good Times Roll" that pairs blues legend B.B. King and Italian singer/songwriter Zucchero (who prove surprisingly compatible) -- but point up the kind of diversity typical of the soundtrack.
