Carter Burwell's score for the Simon West-directed John Travolta suspense drama The General's Daughter is superb, blending blues, electronic dance, and classical in completely unpredictable, evocative ways. It's one of the highlights of the film, and it's the best thing about the soundtrack album, which also includes the pop, blues, and classical tunes that were scattered through the film. Although their presence is necessary on a soundtrack -- some listeners want soundtracks to be an aural representation of the film -- they distract from Burwell's excellent work. Surely, a complete score will be released in the future, but for the time being, it's nice to have this terrific music available in some form on disc. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi
