After completing Annapolis and Fast and The Furious:Tokyo Drift, Brian Tyler started work on this score. Partition tells the story of two people from different religious backgrounds falling in love with each other amongst the backdrop of communal riots and post-colonialism. It is relieving to hear Tyler go back to what made him so popular in 2003, a stunning combination of epic film scoring and world music experimentation. At a whopping 78 minutes of score, Partition sweeps the listener to an exotic world without utilizing tired pop song cliche's or loud orchaestral waltzes highly derivative of classic works. It would have been too easy for Tyler to dip into melodrama with the love story presented but here he provides the story with beauty, ethnic appreciation, and respect that it deserves. This is a score worth picking up if you are a film score collector, a fan of Brian Tyler since his breakout score Children of Dune in 2003, or appreciate a soothing listening experience. This symphonic masterwork would make the Danna brothers eyebrows raise.
