Adore Soundtrack Review: This is a review of the film score Adore by Christopher Gordon and Antony Partos.
I don’t say it often enough, but Christopher Gordon needs more of of his work released. Antony Partos is a relatively unknown name for me, but it’s always fun to discover new talent. Gordon starts the show with the excellent ‘Adore’ and there’s a fantastic piano seuqence in there that always brings a smile to my face. It’s complex and simple at the same time, true brilliance. The same piano sequence is brought back in ‘Two Mothers’ which is another excellent cue by Gordon. The final cue bue Gordon called ‘Beach Walk’ which is a much slower cue, but it builds up and there’s a really good violin theme in there that is excellent every time I hear it.
Partos also has some great contributions that include the short but sweet ‘Embrace’. It’s a very warm and bittersweet cue with a soft guitar as the centrepiece. ‘Talk’ and ‘Time and Tide’ represents that beautiful simplicity that I like and it shows that Partos and Gordon brings different things to the score. Gordon’s work is more complex while Partos is sweeter, warmer and more simple in the buildup.
I really enjoyed Adore a lot and I can’t find a weak cue among the 18 presented on the score.
