Despite its sheer density, the score works: Howard summons a ...

    This CD is very good. It is very much celtic sounding with a touch of modern classical soundtrack. Tracks Main Title(2), Angus Feeds Crusoe(3), You Didn't Even Get Wet(4), The Workshop(5) are very peaceful and somewhat sad and sweet. In 4 & 5 you can just hear the water sparkling. Bathtub(7) is a little bit mischevious. Driving To the Loch(8) is very nice. Run Angus(9)is sad. The Fishermen(10) is fun. It reminds me of Riverdance. Angus in Training(11) reminds you of someone working and working and working... Swimming(12) is a very nice piece. It has some slow and fast parts and a little bit of choral for a second. The Dinner Party(14) is a very quick song reminds me of a brawl. There's No Monster(15) is one of my favorites. Saving Crusoe(16), The Net(17), and The Jump(18) were very intense with a few sad places. The Water Horse Suite(20) is definately celtic all the way. 1, 6, 13, I did not care for very much. They were sort of boring. , End of the Story(19) was inbetween. It had its nice places. All in all it was a very good soundtrack.
