This is without a doubt Mark Mancina's best score, and worth every second if your attention it will get on repeated listens. Here's why: He creates a beautiful, memorable theme that perfectly fit the film. You'll find it running through your head after a while. More and more these days themes are eschewed in favor of dynamic arrangements in scores.
This is often the case with Media Ventures composers Zimmer, Rona, etc. Not so here. The score is varied in both it's moods, and arrangements. This was an underrated, emotional film that went through a lot of changes in it's story and characters. The challenging score fits that perfectly. It's sometimes complex, sometimes simple, often touching, and the emotions it conjures up are strong.
Mancina also used a variety of instruments to fit the film's exotic nature. From flutes, pipes, gamelons and other Eastern instruments, to standard orchestration, all seamlessly. As one other reviewer noted, this score should have been nominated for an Oscar. I can only imagine it's due to his lack of high profile, because this score easily rivals the best work of Mancina's more heralded MV stablemate, Hans Zimmer.
I'm not a raving fan of MV, or even Mancina, but this wonderful score is worth of all the praise it gets. Well this has to be one of the most underrated scores of the 's from one of the most underrated films.
How this film didn't do better both in terms or awards and box-office is Return To Paradise - Imperio - Return To Paradise (CD me. How he didn't recevive any award nomination for his composition on 'Return to Paradise' is a crime not only un my opinion.
Getting back to the music, the score is breathtaking and really highlights all the emotions from the film including drama, suspense, fun, love and tradgedy. Mark Mancina has proved himself a very creative and innovative film composer capable of so much range and variety. From 'Speed', 'Tarzan' and most recently 'Domestic Disturbance', his scores have standed out in all the film's he's composed and usually, his score is one of the highlights of the film. Since there is a limited stock of this CD, I advise people to buy it a.

Thank YouReturn To Paradise - Imperio - Return To Paradise (CD, Klay. See all reviews from the United States. Top international reviews. Translate all reviews to English. Styx have always been a guilty pleasure of mine. Not as hip as the Byrds, not as 'fashionable' as the Eagles, not as cool as a Steve Miller brew but really great non-the-less.
Return to Paradise is yet another live set from this excellent American group. Syyx were a brilliant live band and this two CD set is a great example of a group of excellent musicians at the top of their powers performing before an appreciative and fortunate American audience. Totally terrific- play loud to yourself in the car or home and enjoy the pomp and circumstance by letting the waters of Styx engulf your senses.
