Review by Evolver
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Crossover & JR/F/Canterbury Teams
4 stars Like "John Somebody", I own only the original CD pressing of this album, so I don't have the ability to review the bonus track Boot Camp from the more recent release.

Because this is a motion picture soundtrack, this is much more atmospheric than Scott Johnson's previous album. In fact, the only piece that really resembles the earlier album is Mom Dad, where the film's star Natasha Richardson reads a letter from the captive Patty Hearst to her parents. Johnson then uses the cadence of Richardson's voice as the basis of a truly wonderful avant-garde track. There is also a slight refrain near the end of the album in Dad Mom, but in under a minute it is barely noticable.

The rest of the music, despite being a soundtrack, has some great work as well. Johnson has written some of his quirky guitar-based music for a small chamber orchestra, and much of it gets very exciting. It doesn't offer as much of Johnson's unique style as "John Somebody", but there is plenty here to love.
