In recent years the name of movie composer Hans Zimmer has become synonymous with that of director Christopher Nolan. Those who have come to know Zimmer through his dark, moody, bombastic scores to Nolan's films like The Dark Knight and Inception might be surprised by his work on The Holiday. His score for this Christmas-themed romantic comedy by writer/director Nancy Meyers starring Cameron Diaz, Jude Law, Kate Winslet, and Jack Black is appropriately playful, gentle, and infused with holiday spirit.

If you liked the scores to Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, you may enjoy this fantastic score by Hans Zimmer. The music is full and soothing, something good for having on when reading or right before bed. I would also suggest getting the movie, directed by the brilliant Nancy Meyers. "Maestro" and "Kiss Goodbye" are beautiful songs, while "Kayak for One" and "Dream Kitchen" are a little bit more up beat. The liner notes are pretty good, and the performance and sound quality, excellent. Two Thumbs up for The Holiday Soundtrack!!
This soundtrack was exceptional! I personally enjoy listening to music during my "downtime" when i'm home or driving and this is the soundtrack you'll find in my ipod. Loved it
If you love the movie like I do, you will love this CD..It follows the movie and every time I listen to it, I think of the various scenes with each track. Zimmer uses instruments the way great singers draw you into their world with their voices.
If you are in for "love", "romance" or just want to get "lost in the moment"....this is the CD to purchase. Every song is soft and gentle to the soul. The music will make you smile as your own thoughts wonder off to a more siren place and time. For music lovers who can actually get carried away...this is YOUR CD.
Wanted the songs from the movie not the score
