Prince Caspian Soundtrack

 

 

A lot of people are going to be surprised by the soundtrack of Prince Caspian, The Chronicles of Narnia.  Featured on the album are songs by Switchfoot "This is Home", and Regina Spektor, "The Call."  You can purchase the tracks separately or the whole album at left.

I'd give a full review of the movie but I don't think I can be objective.  From the start of the movie, when the pinching began indicating magic, I was transported back to my childhood.  I haven't read the Chronicles since I was a kid, maybe about eleven.  Every time something I'd forgotten came on the screen I found myself holding the hardbound book with it's heavy paper.  When the four children return to their Narnian castle they find it covered with apple trees and I started remembering that there was a great deal more talk in the book about the trees than in the movie.  Special thanks to Andrew Adamson, even though the children never eat any of the apples or ever really talk about the trees they are clearly there.  Those details are very important and you have started a film series that does a find justice to the books.
