Product Description

Amazon.ca

H.G. Wells's Time Machine has been one of the most inspirational of sci-fi source materials. Indeed, it's remarkable that it went four decades between big-screen incarnations. But aside from being a brisk showcase for the latest in CGI gimmickry, this edition of the evergreen time travelogue features a surprisingly intimate and pastoral score from Klaus Badelt, the German-born former TV composer (and frequent Hans Zimmer collaborator). The story's Victorian roots have seldom sounded this loose fitting and inviting, while its Morlock-dominated 800-millennia-from-now future world is dotted with bold rhythmic touches and pagan choral flourishes that underscore the story's cautionary undercurrent of human devolution. While some heroic passages occasionally lapse into predictable McAction Score clichés, Badelt's handling of the familiar material is surprisingly subtle and promises great things to come. --Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful score June 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the best scores in my soundtrack collection (and I now own over 90 scores). Though I had never heard before of Klaus Badelt, I noticed the name of Hans Zimmer in the booklet, so I decided to give Klaus a chance. Harry Gregson-Williams' cooperation with Zimmer has resulted in a wonderful if not better composer than Zimmer himself, so maybe Badelt could be just as succesful. And listening to this soundtrack I can only say he has much potential. There are some Zimmer influences (which I think is a good thing) but not as much as I had expected. Badelt has composed several wonderful themes, two of them you can hear in the first track, which is one of the best as well. I like the parts in which the choir sings (sounds a bit african, like Adiemus) very much as well. I'm a big fan of James Horner and Hans Zimmer, but I like this score better than their latest work (with the exception of Zimmers score for "Spirit, stallion of the cimmaron") and I hope to hear a lot more of Badelt in the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Music April 1 2004
By Corey
Format:Audio CD
I believe this soundtrack has some of the most beautiful music on it that I have ever heard. It is haunting and yet it is sad and very powerful. It is a great soundtrack to a great film. They go hand in hand. I highly recommend this to anyone that enjoys Classical music and it is very relaxing to listen to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Klaus Badelt scores an instant classic! Dec 13 2003
Format:Audio CD
This soundtrack for THE TIME MACHINE definitely puts Badelt on the map as a major film score composer.
While I personally felt that the film didn't live up to its multi-layered score, this soundtrack definitely belongs in every library of score afectionadoes.
My favorite track, which I refer to as 'tender' is Track 6 - "I Don't Belong Here" which brings tears to my eyes every time that I hear it.
You definitely won't be disappointed with this disk.

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful piece of music Oct. 21 2003
Format:Audio CD
I'm listening to this CD at this very moment, and it still moves me. I've been a huge James Horner fan for many years now, but lately I have been adding some composers to my favourites-list. This is the only CD composed by Klaus Badelt I currently own, but I dare say that it surpasses several James Horners, though it does remind me of him. I haven't even seen the movie yet, but I don't think it will be better than this soundtrack. The first song on this album, as well as the third, contains in my eyes the best part of it, being a majestic horn or baritone-solo. The majestic and emotional parts of the CD are my favourites, but the upbeat tempos are very good composed as well. Klaus Badelt is a fairly new composer in Hollywood, and I personally always hesitate to buy soundtracks composed by unknown composers. But I can assure you that if you either like James Horner or Hans Zimmer, you will like this CD as well, since Klaus Badelt is somewhere in between those two. You won't regret buying it. Like I said, there's emotional music on it (playing right now) with choir, there's action music with a lot of percussion, there are even tracks containing parts of choir singing, which reminds me a bit of Adiemus. There's something for everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you liked the "tribal" music... Sept. 20 2003
Format:Audio CD
This soundtrack demonstrates everything I look for when listening to film music: recognizable themes, variations in moods, and, most importantly, relevance to the film. I must admit that while the movie itself was mildly entertaining, I was enthralled by the music more than anything else.
In particular, the chorus of "tribal" voices is something that has been heard in such films as "The Lion King" by Hans Zimmer and The Ghost and the Darkness" by Jerry Goldsmith, but has never been so expertly done as by Klaus Badelt on this score. I was instantly reminded of the work of Karl Jenkins on his Adiemus albums. I highly recommend checking out the Adiemus albums if the exotic choir on "The TIme Machine" intrigued you at all.

By Gigi
Format:Audio CD
This is the most amazing soundtrack I've ever listened to. The more subtle tracks are so beautiful! If you're thinking about buying this soundtrack it is definitely worth it! Believe me I'm being completely honest. I know some of you say " well that's your taste so I'm unsure " But I'm telling you this soundtrack is excellent! Klaus Badelt is a brilliant composer!
