Product Description

Amazon.ca

Like Tolkien's Lord of the Rings cycle, Frank Herbert's epic Dune saga has found its road to the screen a difficult one. This follow-up to the Sci-Fi Channel's modestly budgeted, yet warmly received first mini-series installment profits greatly from the unabashedly epic score of budding young film scorer Brian Tyler. The composer begins with a strong symphonic foundation, utilizing themes whose melodic power is straightforward, yet often suitably Wagnerian in their dynamic and execution. Tyler then gracefully interweaves a variety of ethnic instruments and modalities to give his cues a rich, if deceptively exotic sense of time and place. It's an epic score that belies its cable roots, yet one that remains masterfully restrained and informed by a dedication of purpose that's even inspired the composer to translate the lyric of his gorgeous, ethereal vocal piece, "Inama Nushuf" into the language of novelist Herbert's native Fremen people. This is the sound of a confidant young musician meeting a daunting dramatic challenge, and then some. --Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars Brian Tyler Oct. 1 2007
Format:Audio CD
Known for Horror movie scores, all of which would make him a poor choice to score anything epic. Or maybe, what he should only score. Hi, Ben Her. Hi Lord of the Rings. Hi Star Wars. It's that good of a score. It's the only thing that kept me watching this mis-rendered obvious blue & green screen mini-series. As with the big screen Dune, Toto seemed an odd choice, but they did a great job. I think Brian Tyler's score is probably the only thing good about both Dune mini-series. Ravel's score for the 1st half is so bad it was no surprise to see a new name. Let's hope Brian Tyler can stay away from Horror movies for the rest of his career. We need more music like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding but little-known soundtrack Aug. 10 2005
Format:Audio CD
This effort by Tyler basically put him on the map, as I doubt many film score fans knew him before then, much less the public in general.
The first track "Summon the worms" is, as most other reviewers have mentioned, simply astounding in its originality and power. Tracks 3 and 6 are also hallmarks of the album. Far from resting on his laurels for the remainder of the album, however, Tyler sustains the efforts through 30+ tracks in order to produce one of my hands-down, no-contest favorite CD's ever.
In short, if you were looking for an intelligently written action soundtrack, composed by someone who managed to sneak in incredible music under Hollywood's "If-It-Ain't-James-Horner-It-We-Can't-Sell-It" radar (aka Troy Rejected Score Syndrome), Children of Dune is quite simply a must-have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing soundtrack June 18 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you like epic music that isn't overboard, this is great. Has great combo of songs - majestic, sad, war-like, etc. Very long CD too, and great sound. Says it takes 3 to 4 weeks to ship, but I got mine in 2 days...

5.0 out of 5 stars Satisfying as a whole or in small portions April 28 2004
Format:Audio CD
This Disc is a collection of 36 small but rewarding tracks. The tracks taken one at a time are excellent for brief but sweeping escapes from the ordinary. Taken as a whole they flow together so well you can feel the story of Dune knitting itself together in your mind. I personally enjoy the entire disc at work, in the car, and at home. The only draw back is that even after more than hour, when the music stops you want more.

The music was top notch. Never before have I heard such such a masterpiece coming from and a new composer! My uncle has never been a Dune fan, but when I showed him the sequence at the end of the first part of Children of Dune, his jaw was on the floor. You know what I'm talking about, the Inama Nushif song. That song mixed with the images displayed almost moved my father to tears, and my father is not one to cry! Overall, the music was excellent!

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding sound quality March 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
One of the most memorable aspects of the ambitious CHILDREN OF DUNE mini-series is the soundtrack. Bryan Tyler's score is far different than the dark, morose and mysterious soundtrack used in the original DUNE.
In my mind, the makers of the 2nd DUNE got their money's worth by hiring Tyler. The original score has both the sorrow and the majesty to be commensurate with the scope of the film itself. From the bold brass melodies to the sad, sombre phrases of woodwinds and strings, Tyler delivers.
One of the most mesmerizing tracks is INAMA NUSHIF (MONTAGE). It covers a very pivotal part of the film and listening to it brings back the powerful and poignant images of the story.
All in all, Brian Tyler may very well be (or become) the best composer of soundtracks this side of Hans Zimmer. If you don't believe me, buy this CD and then decide for yourself!
