5.0 out of 5 stars Thomas Newman is a genius, plain and simple! Oct. 24 2003
Format:Audio CD
Ahh, "The Shawshank Redemption"--the title alone sends a subtle wave of chills up your spine. This is by far one of my favorite films of hundreds I have seen throughout my lifetime. What a touching, heartwrenching, and truly remarkable story of a seemingly simple man taking back what had been stolen from him: his life. And what better way to tell such a powerful tale with an equally powerful and moving score by the amazingly talented Thomas Newman.
Like a few other reviewers here, I myself cannot describe using words alone the range of emotions I go through while listening to this soundtrack. The melodies are so haunting and can put such an incredible strain on your emotions. You can feel yourself grow weary while listening to such tracks as "Brooks Was Here" and "Zihuatanejo", yet you can feel a sense of hope start to emerge with tracks like "Suds on the Roof" and the "End Title" especially. You can completely empathize with Andy Dufrane and what he went through during his unjust imprisonment at Shawshank prison just through the music alone, and that is definitely saying something.
Thomas Newman most definitely has an award worthy masterpiece on his hands. I am extremely disappointed that he did not win the Oscar back in 1995 for Best Score, but I'm glad that he was at least recognized and nominated for "Shawshank's" unyielding glory and magnificence.
By far one of the best soundtracks of all time--NO question.

5.0 out of 5 stars What an incredible piece of music Dec 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
Most of the music on this CD is incredible and extremely moving. The film is a work of art and this music matches the film in its grace and elogance.
The only thing I DON'T like about this CD is that the tracks are not in the same order as the music appeared in the movie. But that's a small price to pay for such great music!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic meld of visual and music July 22 2005
Format:Audio CD
I can't stop playing the music from this movie! I can not think of any other, non-musical, whre the music fit the movie so well. Very melodic and to some very dark, sorrowful music, but to me it comes off very uplifting.
I searched high and low when I bought this CD..but it was worth the search..

5.0 out of 5 stars Encapsulates the Film Perfectly Nov. 28 2003
Format:Audio CD
The brilliant film "The Shawshank Redemption" had Stephen King written all over it (it was based on his short novel), and the moods and themes of this marvelous soundtrack probably capture his unique imagination as well as the movie did. The creative spark of composer Thomas Newman passes through various themes and concepts, matched with the likes of Hank Williams and the Ink Spots (with 'If I Didn't Care,' a song that was a favorite of Redd Foxx's famous TV character Fred Sanford). The album also contains an opera piece that was best described by Morgan Freeman's character Red in the film, "They were singing about something so beautiful that it can't be expressed in words...and makes your heart ache because of it."

3.0 out of 5 stars wow Oct. 3 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I absolutely love this movie. However, I did not think that all the foul language was necessary to get the point across. I only liked the movie until the screne when he barracades himself in the office and plays the opera record. At that point, I really knew the feeling of being trapped and the need to be free. I love the soundtrack because it reminds me of the timeless truths of this movie.
