Maleficent (Film Score) – James Newton Howard

Album: Maleficent (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Artist: James Newton Howard

Released: 2014

Description: A masterfully-created fairy tale soundtrack. There are many emotional and action¬†ranges in this soundtrack, from sinister to alluring, from bold adventure to dreamlike landscapes. One of the better scores to come out of 2014, a writer would be well aided by the album when writing fantasy adventures¬†or dark children’s tales.
