The score to HOPE FLOATS was a pleasure to listen to. I have not seen the movie, so I really cannot talk about how the score works in the film. But the music is a nice combination of soft rock and jazz. Very smooth, this score was enjoyable driving music, and I even found myself whistling along with some of the tracks.

There is a lot of good piano work, in conjunction with a flute, guitar, and percussion. It almost has a "new age" feel to it, but I'm not exactly sure that's the category I would place it in. Some parts reminded me a little bit of WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT - soft jazz with a nice theme.

Again, I'm not sure how this music works in the film, but based on the score itself, I would risk guessing that it works pretty well.
