Immediate - Trailerhead
Hey, have you ever been so inspired and awe-struck by high-decibel, faux-orchestral movie trailers, that you just needed them all in one compilation so that you could I infuse your every day life with Passion, Adventure, Romance, all backed by a rousing soundtrack? Immediate has answered your prayers. "Trailerhead" does not, sadly, feature that baritone voice-over guy who reads the copy for trailers ("In a world where, etc".) but it does attempt to give you more than one bang for your buck.
Taken from several of the label's compilations "Themes For Orchestra and Choir," the bombast is delivered by a combination of sublte New Age electronica and a huge orchestra and choir, 100 and 70 members respectively. There is a medieval feel, or at least intention, in songs lilke "Lacrimosa Dominae," "Serenata Immortale" and "Fides en Lucius Dei," among others. While some of these tunes reach a certain level of emotional impact, they pretty much sound like what they are-loud background music to whip you up into a need to go see "Harry Potter," "Iron Man" or "Hancock."
Immediate sure have been successful, as their music has been used to promote and enliven many, if not most, of the recent blockbusters. In that sense, "Trailerhead" is a nice way to get ahold of music you have probably already heard somewhere, but can't figure out where. Over the course of fifteen rousing, self-important melodies, however, you may be hoping for some visuals to call away your attention.
