MICHAEL GIACCHINO

Disney

19 tracks - 56:00

The Clearing ** 1/2

CRAIG ARMSTRONG

Varèse Sarabande 302 066 585 2

25 tracks - 55:17

The fact that Craig Armstrong was tapped to compose the soundtrack for Pieter Jan Brugge's The Clearing should be the first clue that this film does not fit neatly into any one category. After all, Armstro

The Cooler ** 1/2

MARK ISHAM/VARIOUS

Commotion/Koch KOC CD 5707

14 tracks - 50:01
