What you're about to read is a collection of pointers to some of the music I've discovered on the iTunes Music Store, music I like enough that I want to share it. If you're an iPod owner and an iTunes fan (and if you aren't, what are you doing here?), maybe you'll find something new. Click on any of the CD covers to bounce over to the store and sample a few tracks. And then maybe stop by my other blog for a few well chosen words (and maybe a random snark or two).RSS feed

The Incredibles / Michael Giacchino
The first time I saw the teaser for The Incredibles, I think I was more taken by the music than the animation. Being a Bond fan from as early an age as my parents would allow, I recognized it immediately as the main theme from On Her Majesty's Secret Service, a movie I loved despite Connery-wannabe George Lazenby's less than brilliant performance. (Hey, I was young. And it had Diana Rigg.)

Of course, by the time The Incredibles arrived on the screen, John Barry's stirring theme had been replaced by something new. And I was sad for a while; I'd really enjoyed that leap back into my own moviegoing past. But I can't stay sad. Because the music Michael Giacchino has provided to the film is more than an homage to Barry and the other great film composers of the 60s and 70s; it's a welcome addition to the collection of heroic action themes. The Incredibles is in many ways an unapologetic throwback to an earlier and less ironic time. It gets the soundtrack it deserves.
