The soundtrack to classic movie The Shawshank Redemption should stir some feels in the minds of many: now you can hear it without having a TV to hand. This release includes the whole Oscar-winning original score by Thomas Newman, as well as featured Hank Williams and Inkspots songs and, of course, the crucial Mozart aria from ‘that’ scene.

Most of the soundtrack is soft-sounding and faint, but don't let those qualities deter you -- this is an excellent album. The dark overtones of the movie were furthered by the foreboding, often remote, music, and listening to this may take you back to what you felt while watching the riveting drama play out onscreen. Thomas Newman has built a career out of creating music that is unique and moving, somehow always putting his signature on it without ever regurgitating themes or reusing the same ideas for different films.
