I have accumulated many personal reviews while listening to albums. My reviewing style is non-conventional and was only intended for myself. Sometimes I will only use one sentence to describe an album if I feel that is all that's required. Other times I will review an album while I'm still listening to it, leading to a song-by-song review of the album (bringing the size of the review to nearly dissertation-level). There are times when I will even come back to a review to add information that I didn't know when originally writing the review. The point is that I won't edit my reviews to make them more readable or conventional. My reviews are always a direct result of what I was feeling when I wrote them and I want to let that feeling come through.

Elliot Goldenthal - Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within [2001]

The first three tracks are pretty stock movie music. Things finally get interesting with "Code Red". Some of the songs have a distinct video game feel to them (like "The Kiss" and "A Child Recalled"). However, while this soundtrack works very well in the setting of the movie, it doesn't do much to hold it's own when taken out of context. I do like that the soundtrack has a heavy dose of fantasy elements to it. "The Dream Within" is definitely a standout track.

Rating: 6.5


All ratings are out of 10. Rating may not be a whole number.
