Praise for this album:

“This is tremendously enjoyable, big, old fashioned orchestral film music from a talent I knew nothing about before I was contacted about this project–I absolutely LOVED this music and I think anyone who loves the whole post-Jaws/John Williams world of movie music will enjoy it too–check it out”
JEFF BOND (‘La La Land’ soundtrack liner notes, ‘Hollywood Reporter’, ‘Film Score Monthly’)

“This handsome set….[Isaacs] proves he can romance, swashbuckle and parade regal with the best of them.” THE WEEKEND AUSTRALIAN Review

“The music is highly attractive, lushly romantic and constantly inventive…highly sophisticated. As producer/editor Philip Powers observes, ‘Isaacs had treated a low-budget animated film as if it was a multi-million dollar live-action film, because I could hear him taking all of the emotions seriously. He wasn’t scoring a cartoon. He was scoring ‘A Tale of Two Cities’ with the same sense of gravitas… [as] Erich Korngold.” SYDNEY MORNING HERALD Spectrum

“A beautifully constructed compilation soundtrack album…Isaacs’ work is brilliant…Mark has accomplished a unique body of works with his orchestration aptitude and his compositional skill – I truly believe they go hand-in-hand….a true epic score with bold statements, reminding me of John Williams’ pounding and memorable adventuristic film scores.” LOUDMOUTH Magazine

“I just found myself standing in the butcher and whistling under my breath the main title music to ‘Rob Roy’! I really enjoyed these soundtracks. And boy can Mark Isaacs write a tune! I can absolutely hear why this music was released. It would have been a terrible shame to leave it just sitting there on a shelf.”
ANDREW FORD Composer; Presenter: The Music Show, ABC Radio National

“A very worthwhile album by former “part-time” film composer Mark Isaacs with great adventure-film music. Especially score enthusiasts, who like me have been “in business” for a while and urgently need new, previously unknown material, and who can hum all the main themes of the likes of Goldsmith, Williams or Horner in their sleep, should seize this opportunity.”
DUSTIN NAEGEL (Germany) Screen composer & soundtrack enthusiast

“Consistently engaging…. Isaacs continues to flex his compositional muscle….. excellent thematic writing….The music showcases a modernist romanticism full of beautiful melodies and deft orchestration. This set is highly recommended.” (4 stars) FILM SCORE MONTHLY (Los Angeles)
