ForeverYoung: (Jerry Goldsmith) Both poetic and coated with about as much sugar as humanly possible, ForeverYoung is a fantasy love story that goes so far with its exploits of romanticism that it even throws in some 1930's locale and soaring propeller airplanes.
For collectors who keep the ForeverYoungalbum tucked someplace accessible on their CD shelves, the main enticement is the love theme for the film.
The Brad Dechter soprano sax arrangement of this theme at the start of the album is a mushy extension of Goldsmith's original version incorporated into the final cue of John Barry proportions, and the theme is appropriately downplayed in the middle portion of the score.
Young's sustained output, and the quality, depth and variety of his music is unequalled, except possibly by Bob Dylan.
Young really didn't have any reason to stay in the group, his couplet of Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere (1969) and After the Goldrush (1970) were hailed as two of his best, after which came the commercial success of Harvest.
Young has shown, most recently with his environmental concept album Greendale, that the sounds inside his head are still as loud as ever.
