I bought "Angels in America" not because I have seen the film, but simply because I love Thomas Newman's work. It absolutely gave me what I was hoping for.
Newman has such a talent for lending a "fabric" to a movie. Many naysayers accuse Newman of re-using the same music over and over again, but I think this is true of all composers. His movies have an emotion that no other composer can claim, and I think directors choose him for just that purpose - to give the movie an emotional fabric. He can take you on a journey with his music - physically, spiritually and emotionally. A movie takes on a definite tone when he composes the score. Imagine "Finding Nemo" with a score by Pixar-favorite Randy Newman. It just would not have the emotional resonance, and I did read that the writers of the movie wanted to have just that resonance.
This soundtrack is a mixed-bag of Thomas Newman's best melodies and themes. In addition to the Main Title, this score has many great highlights, including "Ellis Island," "The Mormons," "Bethesda Fountain," "Tropopause," and my personal favorite "Mauve Antarctica." The score has a little of everything Newman fans enjoy. It has an Americana-feel like "The Horse Whisperer" and some eclectic sounds similar to "American Beauty." You'll also find the darkness found in "Shawshank Redemption" and "The Green Mile." Prepare yourself for another journey when you listen.
Another triumph on a long list of triumphs. Now if only Oscar would find a place on his mantle.

I love movies. I've seen so many, you wouldn't believe if I told you how many. There are a lot of movies I love, movies that I've seen many many times without getting bored, "American Beauty" is one of them. But all these movies are nothing compared to the "Angels In America". This isn't a movie. It is a revelation. In my opinion it's the greatest movie of all time. I've never witnessed something like that before. I think I will never get tired of it. I love everything about it. It is a miracle. I'm so thankful for this movie. It is my favourite movie of all time. I hope that HBO will release a DVD Set of "Angels In America". And I hope that the movie gets all the awards it has been nominated for, it deserves all of them and more.
Every single actor did a wonderful job (it's a shame that Justin isn't nominated for a Golden Globe, he was amazing, all were amazing). Tony Kushner's adaptation of his own play is brilliant (I especially liked the fact that the movie doesn't condemn Joe as much as the play did, it's still sad, but it's also a new beginning for Joe). Mike Nichols directing was brave (no fear of nudity) and fantastic, as was the production design. And the soundtrack. The best Thomas Newman score of ALL TIME!!!!
And the last gospel track always makes me cry like a baby (of joy and sadness)!!!!
I'm in love with a movie!
Everybody loves something.
I'm almost done.
The fountain's not flowing now. They turn it off in the winter, ice in the pipes.
This disease will be the end for many of us, but not nearly all, the dead will be commemorated, and will struggle on with the living, and we're not going away. We won't die secret deaths anymore. The world only spins forward. We will be citizens. The time has come.
So, bye now.
You are all fabulous creatures: each and every one.
And I bless you: More Life.
The Great Work Begins.
These lines changed my world...

Thomas Newman is one of the best composers working in American film today, and this is probably his best score. Angels in America was going to be an achievement (as a film): The cast + the director + one of the greatest plays ever = masterpiece. That's due in large part to Newman's wonderful music.
The theme is sonically simply, but wonderfully engaging. In the film, it's first played over the opening "Crossing America" shot, and it gradually comes to a close over a blissfully evocative image. Some of the tracks ("The Mormons", "Bethesda Fountain", and "Lesionnaire") are played prominently in the film, and are easily associated with images. As usual with film scores, it helps to have seen the film. But it's not a necessity.
I'm so moved when I hear "More Life" or "The Great Work Begins". In the movie, this is an cry, a missive, and a hope. In the score, it's a radiant voice asking us, no, DEMANDING US to live life.
This score is the product of a fabulous imagination. The movie is a product of several minor miracles colliding. One of the greatest scores of the past twenty years. What more could you want?

As an avid film score fan, when I heard the score while watching part one of "Angels in America" I knew that this was a 'must have' for my collection.
If you're familar with many of Newman's scores, much of the overtones in "Angels in America" are resonant to those heard in "The Green Mile" and "American Beauty."
Although the entire soundtrack is hauntingly beautiful,three standout tracks are the main title to "Angels in America," "Bayeux Tapestry," and "Bethesda Fountain."
One again Thomas Newman has outdone himself! I'm looking forward to his next endeavor.
