VERY GOOD soundtrack CD for 2017 'The Shape of Water'. Lots of beautiful emotive orchestral cuts, some with fine singing by Renee Fleming and others.

OK soundtrack CD for me. I still long for the old days when you could recognize the film from the theme music - think "Lawrence of Arabia" or Lara's Theme from "Doctor Zhivago" or "Chariots of Fire" or "Casablanca" or "Gone With the Wind" or "The Godfather".... The music is at times beautiful and haunting, but you could play this music with 10 other recent soundtracks and I could not name the film. My favorite tracks were: La javanaise (Madeleine Peyroux), I know why (and so do you) (Glenn Miller & His Orchestra), A summer place (Andy Williams), and You'll never know (Renée Fleming). Very mild recommendation Kristi & Abby Tabby

The score for the film stands out beautifully by itself. Desplat moves between moody, adventurous, and romantic in the cues he's composed, which are accompanied by some of the source music from the film. Well worth listening to.

A glorious reminder of this extraordinary cinematic wonder. From the semi-tango theme to the scene stealing sound sweeps, the soundtrack peaks with Renee Fleming's mezzo-soprano ode to love. A fine way to fill up a morning playlist.
