Soundtrack Dreams Gives Rob Simonsen’s ‘The Age Of Adaline’ A Perfect Score
So if Brian Tyler is the new Jerry Goldsmith and Michael Giacchino is the heir of John Williams, can I dream about Rob Simonsen someday taking over the emotional scepter form James Newton Howard? 10 years from now we will be regarding this composition as a classic. Do yourselves a favor and rush to get it. And if the movie is half as good as the score, it will be amazing. –Soundtrack Dreams

It’s a lot of talent on one track, and the result is something stirring and beautiful, well befitting the film’s complicated themes of love and time. Pulsing synths lend an ethereal tone that is tethered gently by slow-drawn strings. Tonra’s voice rings clear and slightly sad as she entreats a lover, “Speak slowly/ Savor every word/ So we won’t forget that time/ Won’t wait for no one.” She reaches new heights on the words of the title as triumphant drums beat upward in an arc of hope. –Consequence of Sound

Lakeshore Records has a tremendous catalog of soundtracks and artists albums, but have you heard them all? We dedicate this week to our first selection: Brick, scored by China Kent and Nathan Johnson. This film stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Lukas Haas and Emilie de Ravin in a stylistic Noir thriller centered around a High School murder mystery (watch Brick on YouTube). Just listen to the dialogue!
Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Brendan, an outcast who seeks to solve the mystery behind the murder of his ex-girlfriend, who left him cryptic clues before her demise. The soundtrack takes you through the decades via a retro track (thanks to Bunny Berigan), a track by The Velvet Underground, and classically high-pitched and leading instrumentals which only heighten any fears you may be accumulating during key moments of the film.
