Steve WOOD

Soundtrack from the IMAX theatre film
PANGAEA 186 810 057 2 [54:36]

Amazon USA

The huge IMAX screen, especially its great height/depth, is ideal for portraying and better understanding the undersea world. Considering the warm playful nature of these delightful creatures, Steve Wood's light-hearted and joyful score is entirely appropriate. The music is easy-going yet strongly rhythmic and it blends the smooth friendly-sounding percussion of the Caribbean Islands with the passionate lively tones of Argentina. In one memorable number Wood and partner Daniel May transform the song, 'Every Breathe You Take' into a dusky dolphin tango for one of the film's mating sequences.

It is nice to hear Sting's intelligent and responsible songs incorporated in the score -- it will be remembered that he has long used his celebrity to help protect the earth's resources.

The lavish booklet includes notes on the production of the film, notes on Wood's music and that of Sting and a plea to us all to help save the Dolphins and the environment.

As a souvenir of the film or as a pleasant easy listening experience, this album succeeds
