- THE ALBUM (2003) - ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SCORE (2003) - DD VS. THE PUNISHER (2002) -
- MAN WITHOUT FEAR (1998) - THE MAN WITHOUT FEAR (1972) -
This album is chock full of music -- and I do mean chock full. As you can
see by the total playing time, not even part of another song would fit on the CD. The album includes songs from
18 different groups (Evanescence has 2 songs) plus one song from the composer of the motion picture score.|
The images above show the front cover -- the very familiar (& overused) image seen on everything from magazines to posters to trading cards -- the rear cover, and the CD itself. The album was originally released 4 Feb 2003, ten days before the official release of the movie.
Unlike the "pop" album listed above, this album is not chock full of music.
In fact, the total playing time is almost half as much. That's disappointing to me. Is this actually all the
music Revell wrote for the movie?? Or is it just bits and pieces of his work. The record producers could easily
have added a good 20 minutes more at very little additional expense on their end, and they would have had a much
more palatable product.|
As to the music itself: it's very edgy and moody -- which fits the tone of the Daredevil movie. It makes it a little harder to just listen to as a soundtrack, but I want to watch the movie a few more times concentrating a lot on the music before I get too picky there. I do think the music fits the movie well, and Revell made heavy, and very good use, of the choir. Something not all movie soundtrack composers do well.
The soundtrack was recorded by the Hollywood Studio Symphony. The liner notes give a complete listing of the musicians (although not the choir) and a nice B&W photo gallery of stills from the movie. The musical score was released at the same time as "Daredevil: the Album" on 4 Feb 2003.
