For purists, only two tracks of Michael Kamens excellent score for this film appear on this album. Luckily, Varese Sarabande is offering up a complete album of Kamens scores for consumption later this year. Those two tracks are a pseudo-suite entitled "You Can Be " and " Who You Choose To Be" and contain much of the energy that Kamen maintained while writing the themes for Tom Hanks space epic mini-series, "From The Earth To The Moon."
The Iron Giant is an epic piece of animation, and some of the best non-Disney work seen in over a decade, an evolution from Don Bluths The Secret Of N.I.M.H.. Brad Bird, best known for work such as Family Dog from the Spielberg "Amazing Stories" series, directs the rather period-stylized film, capitalizing on many of the hopes and fears of the 1950s. If you like to see an adult story, whimsy, and a load of action and animation that doesnt have the requisite musical revue number, The Iron Giant is the film for you. See it and send a message to Hollywood that you can make great and intelligent animated films and draw an audience to boot.
