I was listening last night. I liked it but wasn't blown away on first listen, and I had other things on my mind. Will listen some more and get back to you.

Of the year's Mandela scores, I think I prefer Eyquem's Winnie Mandela, but they're very different.

I have checked a few cues on the FYC website and so far I quite like what I've heard... Nice mixture of intimacy of First Grader with larger orchestra and more dramatic scoring of Last King of Scotland with a few beautiful symphonic moments thrown in... of course everything depends on what will be exactly included on the album, which I am still waiting for to arrive - hopefully some time next week it should be here smile

The film stars Idris Elba and Naomie Harris and is directed by Justin Chadwick. It opens In US on Christmas Day and in UK on 3rd January.

Saw an exerpt today and the score sounded gorgeous.

Here's the official Decca CD sampler

One of the better new scores of 2013, IMO.

Will be ordered soon!
