The score opens with the theme for “Barbara”, which has to be said is a stirring, yet vibrantly haunting cut if ever there were. The orchestral beauty "Gift of Gold" is next and is backed seamlessly by the gently playful title track.
"Under The Stars" from London Grammar is an odd cut to throw into this orchestral-based soundtrack, but then the blustery "Giants" showcases not only how good Del Mar is, but gets the soundtrack back on track. The soaring, Disneyesque "The Forest" is one of the best cuts here and is backed by the paced piano beauty "Karen", with ethereal "Under The Water" along next.
The pacey "Fight The Forest Giant" is next, then comes the quietly uplifting "Everything Is Gonna Be Alright", "Another Giant Is Coming," another outstanding piano piece in "Searching For Her," and then both "I Have To Go" and the short, but sweet "Thousand Times."
The barely a minute long "The Forest Giants" is then backed by yet another brilliant composition, this time the haunting and yet melodic "Mum," before the entire soundtrack is brought to a close with the (in my humble opinion) out of place here "Something So Strong (performed by Rasmus Walter).
