This is a score completely worthy of the Pixar canon, in my opinion. I was very pleased with it. :D Will there not be a hard copy release? :-(

The soundtrack was good enough. It suited the story well enough. It didn't really grab me and hold my attention like Up's score or anything, but it was suitable. The only thing I'll say is the song about the Open Air or something to that effect, my dad hated. He said it sounded like hippie music.

Its definitely folky. Its by a Scottish folk singer who normally sings in Gaelic! It kind of amuses me that your dad immediately jumps to "hippi," Virginia. By the way, currently listening to "Learn Me Right" and reveling in the Mumford & Sons banjo and the little we hear of their voices. Seriously, they should have had their own song on the soundtrack. But hey, I'm sure this will help their careers a ton!

I loved the songs! They make me feel like I'm running through the wide open spaces of Scotland on a Spring day... I think that's one thing that I loved about Brave was a feeling of ecstasy and freedom and pure joy that made me smile ear-to-ear during the film. :D

Just came from seeing Brave. I thought Patrick Doyle's score was fine, but not anything outstanding. To be fair though, given the style that the score had to be in, I think he did as well as could be realized considering the confined style and period the score had to match.

On a different note, this was the first score for a Pixar movie that was not recorded in the US, but was recorded overseas (London, in this case). I hope this isn't the beginning of a trend (ie, Disney/Pixar doing it to save money scoring outside the US -- especially as everything else Pixar is done here in the US). Though Patrick Doyle is from the UK, he HAS scored movies in the US before (I've worked with him, playing in the orchestra on a film he scored here a while back), so it was kind of sad to see the movie scored outside of the US. At least La Luna was scored here (with Michael Giacchino; we actually recorded that one at the end of the Cars 2 scoring a year ago).

At least it seems Disney has gone back to issuing hard copy CDs...

I personally enjoyed the score immensely. I thought that it was all-around amazing - both functionally in the film and stand-alone musically as well. :)

Mumford was born in the U.S., but his family returned to England. So he is English, and his group's big album was mostly designed and written in Edinburgh, Scotland. The big single off of that album is Little Lion Man, which reached a lousy, laughable #45 on the Billboard Hot 100, which is why hardly anyone with an actual brain listens to radio stations which use a playlist off that particular chart. On the Alternative Chart, however, it easily hit #1, and DJ's in my area yell out "Mumford and Sons!" when introducing the group's songs. Their music has a distinctive Irish or Scottish folk sound which is normally quite unlikely to be heard on U.S. airwaves, except that this group is very, very good.

But buyer beware! From what I've read over at Disney's cd store they are only on one song, albeit an original tune, and they only perform the instrumentals. You have to ask, does Mumford and Son's going to Scotland from England to record music that sounds Scottish folksy have anything to do with Doyle and Co. staying there (instead of all coming here, 7,000 miles away) to record tracks for a popular Scottish fairy tale? It's the atmosphere one would suppose, and convenience for all those British Isle boys and the lassies too and we can be glad for it. It would be hard for them to come over here, depending on their schedule, for just one song and just the instrumental part of that one song.

I really enjoyed the music part of the film and watched carefully when the credits rolled. The good quality of the music was very apparent during those credits, when there wasn't any action and you could concentrate easier. After previewing the 20 songs available at the Disney store, I'm not sure if it's worth the purchase price, but I did see the movie for a 2nd time and continued to be impressed at how the music meshed nicely with it.

I'm the minority, but I didn't like the songs. I did however appreciate the score.
