Product Description

Ever After: A Cinderella Story - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack


Don't be misled by the film's trailers; the soundtrack to Ever After--yet another modern adaptation of a Cinderella story--is an orchestral score by George Fenton. Best known for his work on Gandhi and The Fisher King, Fenton has created a sweeping orchestral score, with the occasional Celtic influences thrown in, as on "Cinderella" or the upbeat "Going to the Ball." But on most tracks Ever After's score is quiet and subtle. Though Fenton has done more memorable work (Cry Freedom), he succeeds here in accentuating the romance of the film. Brit soft-rockers Texas provide the lone vocal track on the score with the infectious closing tune "Put Your Arms Around Me." --Jason Verlinde

To clear up any misunderstanding of why the music from the soundtracks often don't match the music found on the trailers for the movies, it's necessary to understand the timing of things in Hollywood. Often times, when studios are ready to run their trailers to promote their films, the actual soundtracks to their movies aren't ready to be released. This forces them to choose music which they feel fits the "feel" that they want their movie to convey. I don't believe that anyone who's seen Ever After would disagree that "Mummer's Dance" and "Fable" did not convey that feeling of the movie. The orchestral music by George Fenton goes beautifully with the movie and the fact that the trailer music isn't contained on the soundtrack should not take away from his work. It's still a beautiful collection of pieces and worth the purchase. For those of you who still hold a grudge and want to whine and complain that the trailer music isn't on the soundtrack, go out and get Loreena McKennit's "Book of Secrets" and Robert Miles' "Dreamland". Oh, and as for the argument that this practice is "false advertising", keep in mind that the MOVIE trailer is used to promote the FILM not the SOUNDTRACK.

The score to Ever After is just lovely. Listening to this soundtrack calls to mind all of the endearing moments of the movie, even bringing tears to my eyes at points. If you enjoy classical soundtracks, then you may enjoy this CD even if you have not seen the movie. However, if you are looking for the songs played during the movie's trailers to entice you to see the movie, you will not find them on this CD. For some reason, I've noticed that more and more movie trailers use music to attract a particular audience to the movie, and don't always play music that is included in either the movie itself or on the soundtrack CD. (Something I find to be misleading). This is certainly the case with Ever After - the songs I refer to are Loreena McKennit's Mummer's Dance and Robert Miles' Fable, neither of which appear on this CD. The music that is actually included in the movie does appear on this CD - buy the CD for the classical score by George Fenton, and you won't be disappointed.

I bought this CD based on the trailer, and I was disappointed that the overall genre was completely different than I was lead to believe (I have yet to see the movie). Yet, several of the reviews below claim that the music on trailers is not the same as the music in a movie. What kind of nonsense is that? Hasn't anybody ever seen "Mission Impossible" :-)
Of course trailers commonly include music from the soundtrack. Generally, they select the tracks that have the most appeal to the target audience -- they lace the scenes with a few of the more popular tunes, more people watch the movie, and more people buy the soundtrack. This is simply selective marketing. But when the music on the trailer is not what is in the movie, it is simply false advertising.
Advertising affects what we buy. And music can affect the way we feel about a movie. When people purchase a ticket to see a movie that they have been convinced to see based on a genre of music that has nothing to do with the "feel" of the movie, they are naturally going to feel disappointment. And this holds true for the purchase of a soundtrack -- which is generally an even bigger investment than a movie ticket.
Mr. "Music Fan from Vancouver Canada," below, says that people do not have a right to complain when they are misled in advertising. He notes the example that a person who buys this CD and then gets upset that it's not an Enya clone would probably complain if they "bought a toaster. . .that didn't make coffee." If the package around the toaster said that it made coffee, you can bet your keester that I would complain if it didn't.
Whether you like this CD or not, there is no getting around the fact that it's sold under a pretense of something it's not.

I'm glad to know that I'm not the only person that loved the trailer music, in fact, I downloaded the trailer from the web site, just so I could hear "The Mummers' Dance," though at the time I didn't know what it was called. I'm sick of them playing songs in the trailers that are not included in the movie at all. A trailer of the movie "Mulan," included the instrumental song from "Seven Years In Tibet." I was very excited about not having to buy both CD's, but when I listened to the "Mulan" soundtrack I realized that the song I was looking for was not included at all, in any shape or form. The "Ever After" soundtrack lacks the music that reminds me of what Drew Barrymore's character was supposed to represent, a strong female. However, the trailer music went nicely with it, so maybe somebody up there in the music department for Fox needs to start doing their job!!

I've learned from past experience that it is often the case that the music used in the trailers are NOT necessarily found on the soundtrack. That's why I always either watch the movie or read the track listing before buying a soundtrack. (I guess being burned a few times teaches you that much). That's why I never expected the soundtrack to Ever After to include the Loreena McKennit or Robert Miles song used in the trailers...they were nowhere to be found in the movie. The soundtrack was everything I expected. It's a wonderful, moving score. And the Texas song: "Put your arms around me" was an added bonus. I highly recommend this soundtrack to anyone who has seen the movie or who loves instrumental works. Those of you who only have seen the trailer...check out the movie for yourselves...it's a great flick and who knows...you may even like the music too. :) END
