An extensive collection of themes from fantasy and adventure movies through the years, Fantasy Album: Adventure and Fantasy at the Movies features renditions of music from films spanning The Highlander to The Three Worlds of Gulliver as performed by Nic Raine and the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. While these performances don't quite measure up to the original recordings, the set does include many pieces from film's most respected composers, including John Williams' "The Raiders March" (from Raiders of the Lost Ark), Bernard Herrmann's "Prelude" (from Jason and the Argonauts), and Howard Shore's "The Fellowship" (from Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring). Other highlights include Tan Dun's "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon/The Eternal Vow" (from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), Danny Elfman's "Main Title/Ice Dance" (from Edward Scissorhands), and Hans Zimmer's "Suite" (from Gladiator). While it may not make film score buffs as happy as a collection of the original versions of these compositions would have, Fantasy Album: Adventure and Fantasy at the Movies is still a relatively decent collection of some of film's most dramatic music. ~ Heather Phares
